Just a heads up that the nationally syndicated radio show, Coast to Coast, will interview the set director and prop maker from the original Star Wars.

Show description from the website:

First Half: For the original Star Wars film in 1977, Set Decorator and prop maker Roger Christian created a totally new look in sci-fi film by using found objects to give George Lucas' fantasy worlds a feeling of authenticity. Christian joins Richard Syrett (Twitter) to discuss how he dressed the Star Wars sets with airplane scrap and modified WWII guns to create menacing, realistic sci-fi weapons, and the lightsaber out of vintage camera parts.

The program starts at 23:00 in my market, but you will need to check your local affiliates for the times in your area.

Star Wars Sets

For those that miss the initial broadcast, some radio affiliates will immediately replay it, either the entire program or a portion of it. Coast doesn't replay it's ownbroadcasts, however some radio affiliates may choose to rebroadcast this program on a later date.

Coast to Coast does have a subscription plan that allows members to replay any of their archived programs.

ETA: listening to the program now and there are some great behind-the-scenes stories and tidbits for fans. A fair bit of gun talk early in the interview, stories about the challenges of getting Kenny Baker inside R2-D2, how he came up with the original lightsaber, budget concerns, a fantastic story about the Sand Crawler and the Algerian army etc...

Turns out that this interview is part of a P.R. campaign to promote Roger Christian's new making of Star Wars documentary:

Galaxy Built on Hope

Currently available for pre-order from his website, and soon to be available from Amazon.
