Greatest podcast guest of all-time Bill Scheft returns to talk about putting together a tribute to his wife and comic extraordinaire Adrianne Tolsch, a phenomenal new documentary about plastic surgery and a voicemail he recently received from Jay Leno.
Other topics covered include the week The Late Show spent in London, former Johnny Carson producer Peter Lassally’s role in the Letterman organization and Chris Rock’s place on the Mt. Rushmore of stand-up comedy.
And for The Truants, no music this week past 1968.
In the wake of Syd Barrett’s departure in 1968, the band sought a new identity. Up until the release of The Dark Side Of The Moon in 1973, Pink Floyd released some of the most radical music of their career.
Over the course of the albums A Saucerful of Secrets, More, Ummagumma, Zabriskie Point, Meddle and Obscured By Clouds, Pink Floyd expanded their sound and totally changed their approach to songwriting and live performance.
Kopp’s book offers many insights that will be revelations to even the most astute Pink Floyd obsessives – a few of which he reveals in this podcast.

This was one of my first podcasts but Bill Scheft was so good it made up for my ineptness.
