The Flashback Interview: Kelli Maroney

by Johnny Capson December 14, 2017
My newest interview subject, Kelli Maroney, is actually a talent I’ve interviewed before. I interviewed her via e-mail for RetroJunk, my previous writing base, in 2007. The interview may have happened only 10 years ago, but for me, it’s more like a lifetime ago. When I first interviewed Kelli Maroney, I was in a very […]

The Flashback Interview: Leah Ayres

by Johnny Capson December 6, 2017
My first exposure to my next interview subject came via the 1988 movie Bloodsport. Leah Ayres played Janice Kent, the movie’s female lead. She made an impression on me with her beauty and her talent, and as I delved further into her career, I became impressed not only by her work on-screen, but her work […]

The Flashback Interview: Lezlie Deane

by Johnny Capson November 2, 2017
I was first introduced to my next interview subject, Lezlie Deane, through my friendship with former interview subject JJ Cohen, who co-starred with her in the 1988 horror favorite 976-Evil. I sent her a friend request shortly afterward, and we got to know each other well enough to do an interview in 2015. Unfortunately, a […]

Remembering Tom Petty, A Great Singer

by Johnny Capson October 3, 2017
On Monday, October 2nd, 2017, it was officially announced that singer Tom Petty has passed away. When his passing was officially announced, I felt the same way I did about Prince’s passing. Tom Petty was another artist that got me through some of the roughest times of my life. There was something fascinating about his […]

The Flashback Interview: Nichole McAuley

by Johnny Capson September 19, 2017
I first came across Nichole McAuley when I saw she was going to be a guest at The Hollywood Show, a popular autograph convention based in California. Although I didn’t buy her autograph, I was fascinated by reading her biography on the site. With stints as a dancer, a model, a singer, an actress and […]

The Flashback Interview: Debra Lamb

by Johnny Capson September 3, 2017
(Cover photo by David Hauser) It was a pretty boring Summer, with the occasional rough patch at work, but some nice things happened during the season. One of them was my next interview. My first exposure to Debra Lamb came when I purchased the 1987 movie “Stripped To Kill” on DVD. Ms. Lamb’s dancing stood […]

The Flashback Interview: Tane McClure

by Johnny Capson September 1, 2017
The first time I heard Tane McClure was in 2001 when I purchased the DVD of The Terminator and heard her music with the group Tryanglz playing in several scenes. I would then see her in the flesh when I received the DVD of Legally Blonde as a Christmas present in 2001. Ms. McClure had […]

Lessons I’ve Learned From 80s Movies

by Johnny Capson July 6, 2017
This December, I’ll be turning 35. My date of birth was December 22nd, 1982, and I started becoming aware of my surroundings in 1987, around the time I was 4 and 1/2 years old. I had no idea at that young age that the pop culture of the decade I was born in would become […]

The Flashback Interview: Audrey Landers

by Johnny Capson June 6, 2017
I was first introduced to Audrey Landers’ work via the 1985 film version of A Chorus Line, where she played Val and memorably performed the song “Dance Ten, Looks Three”. As I’m always learning more about the pop culture of the past, especially the 1980s, I came to discover more about Audrey, and I was […]

The Flashback Interview: Holly Fields

by Johnny Capson May 31, 2017
I attended Chiller Theatre in Parsippany, New Jersey for the 4th time in October of 2016, and as with the previous times I attended, I met a lot of wonderful people, both celebrity and convention-goer alike. Falling into the former category is my next interview subject. Holly Fields has been active in the entertainment industry […]

The Flashback Interview: Shari Shattuck

by Johnny Capson May 17, 2017
My first exposure to my next interview subject came when I purchased a VHS copy of The Naked Cage in the mid-00s after having read about it in several books about 80s movies. An excellent contribution to the genre of women-in-prison movies, the film starred Shari Shattuck as a woman named Michelle, who is framed […]
