Miss Piggy and Charles Grodin

Actor Charles Grodin died yesterday. He was 86. Known for his work in films like “Midnight Run,” “The Heartbreak Kid” “Beethoven,” and “The Great Muppet Caper” – Grodin also performed on television, on Broadway, and hosted his own talk show on CNBC. We spoke with him in 2012 and we air that interview today, in memoriam. The conversation begins with Grodin explaining why it’s so difficult to thrive – or even survive – in show business.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
