Bob Dorough, Schoolhouse Rock Music Director, Interview Parts 1 & 2

My interview with Bob Dorough, Music Director of Schoolhouse Rock, the animated series of school lessons set to music. Bob composed such classics as “Conjunction Junction” and “Three is a Magic Number,” and is also an accomplished jazz singer/songwriter/pianist whose extensive list of credits includes having recorded with Miles Davis. Bob discusses the genesis of the Schoolhouse Rock series, behind the scenes stories on the recording process, and the legacy of his contribution. (Note: interview conducted in 2008 – the New DVD that was in the works at the time of the interview entitled Schoolhouse Rock Earth! is now available).
