During the Monday, July 22nd edition of KCSB’s music-and-cultural-arts program “The Freak Power Ticket,” host Ted Coe took a trip back to the Reagan-’80s, paying tribute to filmmaker Alex Cox‘s 1984 punk satire, Repo Man, which was shot in Los Angeles 30 years ago this summer.
Special guest Steve Nelson, Repo Man‘s “production sound mixer” (sound man) and Cox’s friend at UCLA’s film school, shared stories and personal anecdotes about the cult-classic film that simply won’t go away. (Also worth noting, Nelson is married to UCSB Professor of Film & Media Studies Janet Walker.)
The two-hour program also featured songs from the motion-picture soundtrack, covers, film trailers, dialogue clips, deleted scenes, and more.
