Dr. Demento remembers Bill Paxton for Night Flight
We were saddened to learn of the death of versatile actor Bill Paxton, at age 61, after suffering a fatal stroke following complications after heart surgery.
Night Flight reached out to Barret Hansen, a.k.a. Dr. Demento, who recalled for us the day he spent with Paxton back in 1980 when they were both involved in filming of the Barnes & Barnes short film/video for “Fish Heads,” a cult classic which aired on “Night Flight” several times during the 1980s.
Take Off To Animation: A closer look at a classic episode on Night Flight Plus
Night Flight’s “Take Off To Animation” featured not just one but two videos by Will Powers, an alter ego with a synthetically-altered faked male voice used by photographer Lynn Goldsmith, including “Adventures in Success,”one of the first ever 3D computer-animated music videos.
The full episode — one of our most popular shows ever, originally airing on February 17, 1984 — is now streaming over on Night Flight Plus.
