Rick’s Interview With ‘Weird Al.’ Al Talks about George Lucas, Prince and Bubblegum Alley [ARCHIVE INTERVIEW]

Weird Al Yankovic - Running With Scissors

Weird Al’s “Alpocalypse’ concert is coming to Comedy Central this Saturday night, so I thought I would bring back this ‘archived’ interview I did.

‘Weird Al’ Yankovic’s new cd, ‘Alpocolypse’ drops into stores and available for digital download tomorrow (June 21). Earlier I posted about my top 10 favorite Al tunes, but I thought it would be nice to open up my interview ‘vault’ and treat you to some segments of an interview I did, in studio, with Al back in 2000.

This was recorded during my afternoon shift when I was working at KZOZ-FM in San Luis Obispo, CA. To set up the interview, Al was promoting his latest cd at the time,  ‘Running With Scissors.’ So a lot of our conversation is geared towards that album.


 

Al talks about ‘The Saga Begins” and since he wasn’t able to get a script, where he found his information to write the lyrics.
