As co-artist on a record that is labeled a one-hit-wonder (“Pac Man Fever”) Jerry realized most people had no idea of the other successful projects that he and Gary have worked on in the entertainment business. Knowing that is true of many other artists labeled one-hit-wonders he thought it might be interesting to interview them in a one-on-one, no-holds-barred conversation to tell their personal stories behind their songs their lives and what they are up to now.
Jerry’s first guest is Arnie Geller, a close friend and former manager for Buckner & Garcia who has an incredible history in the music business. Arnie has been a part of several pop one hit wonder classics such as Spyder Turner’s “Stand By Me”, “Disco Duck”, “I Love The Night Life” and others. He has some great inside stories to share about those songs that I know you will enjoy.
The first show is scheduled for release on November 1st.

It was 30 years ago that Pac Man Fever was released and quickly became a worldwide hit. In that time the song and album has continued to sell and attract new fans around the world. We want to thank all of you who have purchased the album and the many great comments we have received from you over the years.
Because of the ongoing interest with the album we decided to release a special 30th year anniversary version with commentary on the writing and production of the songs. Each song is featured in its entirety followed by a repeat play of the same song with commentary.
There is also an introduction with some background on how and why we wrote the song along with a never before released interview with Gary made shortly before his untimely passing.
Listen to a sample of the commentary tracks with play button below!
We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it!
Also here on the website we have posted a montage of clips from The American Top 40 countdown show with Casey Casum, The National Music Survey with Dick Clark and an interview with Charlie VanDyke on the Weekly Music Magazine show. These clips are from 1982 and reflect the impact of the video game craze spreading across the country at that time.
