Legendary writer and director Wes Craven has passed away, and in honor of his legacy the Radulich in Broadcasting Network gets together to talk about his career, influence, and share some of our memories associated the man responsible for some of the best genre and horror movies of the last several decades.
On August 30th we lost one of the greats in modern horror. The man who brought us both A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream and made Robert Englund a household name Wes Craven passed away. Tonight we'll talk about Wes Craven and his contribution to the world of horror, one of my personal favorites.
Writer/director horror master Wes Craven spoke with host Robin Milling for the film The Serpent and The Rainbow starring Bill Pullman. In this interview from 1988, Wes revealed to Robin his inspiration for Freddie Kruger, the star of Nightmare on Elm Street and how some of his films came straight out of his personal nightmares.
He tells Robin about his own intrigue, fears and curiosities about death and the macabre, 'there's an age old fascination with death. It's one of those truly unsolved mysteries. Since it's something we're all moving towards and know in the back of our minds that we're going to face; I think that even at the level of a child you're fascinated by it and the ultimate finality of it. When you see a scary movie you're somehow relieved that you survived it. But ultimately it brings everybody down; even the most powerful and the weakest.'
Surprisingly, Wes told Robin he would like to do a comedy, even a love story. No matter the genre, Wes will live on in the movies; always to be remembered for his uncanny abilities to frighten the old and the very young.

As a long time fan of Wes Anderson, I have long been intrigued and entertained by his films. They have such noteworthy stories and a unique way of shooting that I cannot help but watch each and every one as soon as they come out. My collection and admiration for his works have grown over the years, and with each new addition I am newly impressed with his vision. Some may say "Who is this guy?" and "Why should I care?" That is exactly what this show is about. Tune in to hear about his works and discuss the latest additions to the family. You might just be surprised at how much you have in common with the characters and lives they lead.
How does empathy create communities? In what ways has jazz education changed over the decades? How are jazz and contemporary music similar/dissimilar? How does the Common Core impact the learning environment? On November 22, 2013, Drs Modeste & Wes reviewed smart conversations with Clarinetist Anat Cohen; Director of the New School's Jazz & Contemporary Music department, Martin Mueller; and Education Professor Yen Yen Woo. Join us today (11AM ET/8AM PT) as we revisit that eye-opening episode and "Get in on the rhythm."
