Reject Radio #75: Don’t Call Him a Choreographer

This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, Busby Berkeley biographer Jeff Spivak joins us to talk in-depth about the movie icon’s life and art.

From his early days of being born into the theater, to his success with 42nd Street and Footlight Parade, to his tragic car accident that threatened to derail his career (and his freedom), we cover it all.

Or at least as much as possible. The guy was prolific.

Fan of musicals? Fan of Buzz? Fan of just plain being entertained? Then this one’s for you.

  • The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley: Jeff Spivak’s “Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley” is an insanely detailed biography that charts Buzz’s life from the early days through his last. We take a conversational tour through the movies of the musical icon and dance director who gave birth to some ultra-lavish numbers and some dripping wet showgirls.
