Greetings, fellow blockheads! IT’S A PODCAST, CHARLIE BROWN Episode 35 is here!
Just so you’re not confused, I messed with the schedule this month and not just because this episode is dropping a day late. We’ve still got a random strip of the month. We’ve still got a “Peanuts by Schulz” short (this one is called “Reach for the Stars”). We even still have episode 17 (the penultimate one!) of “The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show”.
BUT, we’re shelving the planned “A Good Man, Charlie Brown” discussion until a later date. I had the unexpected good fortune of booking an interview with playwright Jack McManus about his new musical “Sparky”, which debuted earlier this year in New York. The play presents significant points in Schulz’s life and sounds very cool. I think you’ll agree the scheduling change was well worth it.
Even we blockheads get it right once in a while.
