This Week’s Guest: Sally Kellerman
Written by admin on April 6, 2009
On this Friday’s Revenge of the 80s Radio, we will feature a conversation with actress Sally Kellerman, who is also an accomplished singer and has a new CD out.
Kellerman starred in such great 80s movies like “Back to School,” “Moving Violations” and “Meatballs 3.” Her first movie role came in 1957 in “Reform School Girl.” [amazonify]B001O54R40[/amazonify] She appeared in several movies and television shows until the classy actress with the famously sensual voice earned the role that would raise her to superstar status: that of Major Margaret Houlihan in the “MASH” movie. While she and director Robert Altman created the character, she turned down the offer to reprise the part on the TV series.

Kellerman has always loved singing, and had a record contract at the age of 18. She also put out an album in 1970 and sang in some of her movies. Her CD, Sally, is now available and highlights her vocal range and love of jazz.
Sally Kellerman can not be stopped. She also performs with a top-notch band and offers a fun stage show when on tour. Our interview will lead off the second hour of the April 10th edition of Revenge of the 80s and feature two tracks from Sally.
