director

Todd Sheets started making horror movies in KC in the late 1980s. He stopped after a close friend died at the Catacombs Haunted House. A health scare — a heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery — inspired him, in part, to make movies again. His latest, Dreaming Purple Neon, has its world premiere tomorrow night at Screenland Armour.

Plus, a chat with musician Rachel Mallin, and an encore presentation on lizards.

Guests:

Steve Kraske talks with University of Kansas film professor John Tibbetts about his new book, Those Who Made It: Speaking with the Legends of Hollywood. A collection of interviews with Hollywood stars and directors spanning more than three decades, the book includes conversations with Spielberg, Altman, Roger Ebert, Michael Moore, and John Houseman.
