This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, we close out the 2011 season of the show with a long-form interview with Bill Marx about his father Harpo and the rest of the Marx Brothers.

The musician and film scorer shares his memories of the most famous harp player this side of King David, a legend of comedy, and one hell of a great human being.

On This Week’s Show:

The Lovable Anarchist: [Beginning - End] – Harpo Marx is perhaps the only man to achieve icon status in post-silent era Hollywood without ever saying a word. His son Bill, the author of “Son of Harpo Speaks!” joins me to discuss being adopted into the family, Harpo’s career born out of a negative critique, the comedian’s profound connection to JFK, and the enduring legacy of a man in a curly red wig, chasing women with a squeaky horn.

Buy “Son of Harpo Speaks!” through Amazon.
