Episode 13: Sonny Curtis


The Beaucephus Broadcast is back, and we’re turning the southern charm all the way up for episode 13! You’ve likely heard his work, but this week, we pull back the curtain on the man behind the music. He’s the gentleman who wrote the ubiquitous “I Fought The Law,” is a member of the legendary Crickets (who backed late greats such as Buddy Holly and Waylon Jennings), and he penned one of the most recognized television anthems of all time, “Love Is All Around,” the theme song for The Mary Tyler Moore Show. It’s an honor and privilege this week to welcome the legendary Sonny Curtis to The Beaucephus Broadcast! Hear how Sonny got his start in Meadow, Texas, what it was like to grow up and be a part of Buddy Hollly’s band, how the theme song to The Mary Tyler Moore Show was created, and how it feels to have your music recorded by a lengthy list of names that includes Tom Petty, Glen Campbell, The Clash, and many more. Plus, Beau praises Ken M and Reddit for his meteoric internet rise and discusses being pigeonholed at music trivia (again). All this and more on episode 13 of The Beaucephus Broadcast!
