It’s a great privilege to be in this NPR piece on “The Rainbow Connection,” celebrating its recent preservation by the Library of Congress as a “culturally significant” recording. You’ll hear me alongside Cheryl Henson, songwriter Paul Williams, the amazing Frank Oz, and Muppet performer Matt Vogel doing the voice of Kermit.
Oh, and we were NOT all in the same room together. I wish. I recorded my part at a local NPR affiliate here in Albuquerque — and fun fact: I had to do it TWICE. The first time, a power problem covered the entire recording with a loud buzzing, so I had to go back downtown and be interviewed AGAIN.
But it all came out all right. As you can tell if you listen.
