Actor/Writer/Director Bruce Campbell Finally Gets Asked About Music on KCRW’s Guest DJ Project

Full episode online now at:


Santa Monica, CA (October 19, 2016) – Actor, writer and producer Bruce Campbell discusses songs that have inspired him in the latest installment of KCRW’s Guest DJ Project. Campbell talks to Eric J. Lawrence about a few of his favorite tracks, stating “I’m very happy to be here, because no one asks me about music, EVER!”

During the taping, Campbell professes his love of Motown, admiration of good lyrics, what not to listen to if you’re going through a break-up, and what motivated the cast and crew on the set of Burn Notice.

In addition to TV shows such as Xena: Warrior Princess and Burn Notice, and films like the critically acclaimed Bubba Ho-Tep, Campbell is the star of the cult horror comedy franchise the Evil Dead — and now the Ash vs Evil Dead TV series on Starz, where he reprises his role as the reluctant demon fighter.
