Charles Fox

Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast #267 July 7, 2019

Gilbert and Frank welcome one of their favorite composers, Grammy and Emmy winner Charles Fox, who looks back on a six-decade career of writing top 40 hits (“Killing Me Softly with His Song”) as well as music and themes for TV shows (“Happy Days,” “Wonder Woman”) feature films (“Barbarella,” “9 to 5”) and game shows (“Match Game,” “What’s My Line?”). Also, Charles teams with Barry Manilow, pens a tune for Burt Reynolds, witnesses the Ed Ames tomahawk incident and remembers friends Neal Hefti, Jerry Goldsmith and Henry Mancini. PLUS: “Love, American Style”! The Charles Fox Singers! The inventiveness of Ernie Kovacs! Gilbert sings the soundtrack from “Zapped!” And the boys pay loving tribute to Paul Williams!
