We’re talking about Books That Make You remember Moonlighting.

Ground-breaking shows like Moonlighting paved the way for yet more ground-breaking TV. For fans in the 80s, this show was a must watch. It featured the iconic Cybil Shepherd opposite a very young Bruce Willis in, yes, the pre-Die Hard show that catapulted his career. The writers, producers, showrunners and everyone involved produced the show despite a number of odds.

Our guest today is our friend Scott Ryan, author of the book Moonlighting: An Oral History. A TV historian and pop culture expert, he is also a publisher and a writer.

His books include thirtysomething at thirty: an oral history, The Last Days of Letterman, as well as Moonlighting: An Oral History. He is co-publisher at Fayetteville Mafia Press, as well as the managing editor The Blue Rose Magazine, the director of A Voyage to Twin Peaks and the host of The Red Room Podcast.
