Call in to speak with the host
Host Robin Milling celebrates singer/songwriter Christopher Cross' 60th birthday and the release of his first CD in 12 years, Doctor Faith. It's been 30 years since the original Arthur with Dudley Moore opening in theaters. Cross, who penned the beloved Arthur's Theme weighs in on the remake.
"Dudley is Arthur and that's it. Russell Brand is a talented guy but Dudley created the character and he's gone so leave well enough alone. Steven Gordon who wrote and directed that picture died six weeks after Arthur came out which is why Arthur 2 was not very good. I haven't seen it and I'm not really interested in seeing it because I'm from the era that connects to Dudley. They asked us if they could use the song (Arthur's Theme) which we didn't let them do. They did re-record it with somebody else. I just have a lot of reverence for Dudley and miss him greatly and he's the one that brought that character to life. But it does bring it to a new generation so that was good."
It's good to talk.
