012: Interview: John Roderick

Running Time:

Merlin talks with John Roderick, the singer and songwriter behind “The Long Winters” (and the man behind The Merlin Show’s theme song, “Blue Diamonds”). John curses at on-set hippies, wonders about making money on the web, and demands that indie rockers learn to behave more like building contractors. Roffle, roffle, roffle. (Contains PG-13 language, ribald exchanges, and frank discussion of show business [“it’s not ‘show friend…’”])

Note: This is the first segment of our 4-part interview with John Roderick; don’t miss part two, part three, and part four.
