I’m Ken Plume, and soon you’ll be listening to “A Bit Of A Chat” with me, Ken Plume.

In this episode, I’m having a bit of a chat with author, NPR commentator, Mystery Science Theater alumnus, member of The Film Crew, and RiffTrax riffer, Kevin Murphy.

Though an accomplished author and performer, Kevin Murphy will perhaps be forever known as a wise-cracking robot with a gumball dispenser head, springy arms, a stout body, and an underwear fetish. Barring that, he’ll probably also be remembered as a giant talking monkey.

For 9 seasons, Kevin performed Tom Servo on Mystery Science Theater 3000, expanding his on-screen time with his frighteningly nuanced portrayal of the intelligent simian Professor Bobo, in addition to being a member of the writing staff and having numerous production duties during the series.

Post-MST, Kevin has been a frequent contributor to NPR, and written the cinematic travelogue A Year At The Movies, which chronicled his worldwide journey to experience a film a day in theaters around the globe.

He re-teamed with fellow Satellite of Love refugees Mike Nelson and Bill Corbett as the B-movie quipping Film Crew, and now is back to riffing full time with Mike & Bill on Legend Films’ downloadable RiffTrax commentaries, a massive clutch of which have just been released on DVD. Also available at RiffTrax is a virtual CD containing the songs of the RiffTones, a band forged in the fires of our very own Masters of Song Fu competition.

Kevin was sequestered in his palatial, heavily wooded retreat when he deigned to grant me a further fraction of his valuable (and creative) “me” time… As this wasn’t the first time we’d spoken - far from it - the conversation got a little… unique…

Here now is my chat with Kevin Murphy… Hope you enjoy…
