Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) welcomes back Alamo’s own Lauren Knight (@ThatMovieIsFine), as they talk about the big reason Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi left Saturday Night Live at the end of the 4th season: they were off to shoot a movie with John Landis for Universal! But it wasn’t just any movie… 41 years later, it’s regarded as the best SNL movie ever, one of the best movie musicals ever, and a cultural phenomenon that rolls on to this day. Straight outta Joliet, they’re talking about Jake and Elwood Blues…The Blues Brothers! Sponsored by Slingshot House (@slingshothouse), Nightmare Fuel Video (nightmarefuelvideo.com), and Faces in Heels Burlesque. Opening and closing themes by the Blues Brothers Band.
