Back Seat Producers Season 03 Shows

BSP Episode 062: The First Three Indy Movies

Welcome to the first episode of the Back Seat Producers.

In this episode, Tony, Tony and Adam discuss the first three Indiana Jones films. If you haven’t seen Raiders, Temple, or Crusade, you might want to watch them first, because we are spoiling things all over the place in this episode. (Sorry, the settings were a bit off on the mixer and it wasn’t noticed until editing, the problem will likely show up in part of the next episode too.)

We also have some special guest voices as part of the intro. Thanks to Ed, Dubshack (, Summer, Tim and Mike (all from We are going to continue to ask for movie quotes in the future. To keep up to date on what movie we are currently reviewing (and need quotes for) visit the FarPoint Forums.

"Andy Griffith" Show Composer Dies

Earle Hagen, Emmy-winning TV theme composer, author and educator, died Monday of natural causes at his home in Rancho Mirage, Calif. He was 88. 

Hagen, who not only composed the theme from the Andy Griffith Show but also did the whistling for the melody, had a 33 year career in the industry composing original music for more than 3000 tv shows, among them The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Danny Thomas Show, That Girl, The Mod Squad, Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer, Eight Is Enough, The Dukes of Hazzard, and I Spy, for which he won an Emmy. In 1960 he took an Oscar for Let’s Make Love starring Marilyn Monroe.

Hagen played trombone with both the Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman  orchestras and composed the jazz classic Harlem Nocturne. Nocturne, written in 1939 for big-band leader Ray Noble, would go on to be recorded by Les Brown, Glenn Miller, Woody Herman, and numerous other bands since.

He is survived by his second wife Laura and two sons, Deane and James.
