Here's the Radio Boston rundown for a special hour on Dec. 26. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- Michael Schur has been a creative force on some of the funniest TV shows of the last 20 years. Schur was a writer and producer for "The Office," a co-creator of "Parks and Recreation" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," and the creator of "The Good Place." He joined us in Studio 3 in September.
- Brookline native John Hodgman is probably best known for his former recurring role on "The Daily Show" as the deranged millionaire. But as he talked about when he joined Radio Boston in October, he had quite an interesting run in show business playing a variety of "creepy villains." His new book, "Medallion Status," is a reflection on what it's like to become famous, and then somewhat less famous.
- There are some TV shows that leave us humming the theme song long after the episode has ended. After the HBO hit "Succession" won the 2019 Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music in September, we wanted to find out more about what it takes to create a great TV theme song. Mason Daring, feature film composer and a film scoring professor at Berklee College of Music, joined us in Studio 3 to break it down.
