DMEPodcasting Them Softly is extremely excited to present a chat with special guest David Mickey Evans, the writer, director and the narrator’s voice of the heartwarming classic baseball movie THE SANDLOT, and writer/producer of the cult family classic RADIO FLYER.  He has contributed to the BEETHOVEN family movie series, and also wrote, directed and narrated THE SANDLOT 2.  His recent novel, THE KING OF PACOIMA, is a fascinating expansion on the RADIO FLYER universe he created, and really hits a lot of intense notes of emotional and personal reflection. His work has skillfully combined childhood magic with real world trauma, something that had been largely missing on screen since 1960’s era cinema, and he helped to break the mold of cliched cuteness that was inherent in family fare all throughout the 1980’s. He’s also a prolific script doctor on a wide variety of films, which is always an area of great fascination for us.  A true movie lover, Evans is a major baseball fan, so it was a lot of fun to pick his brain over his favorite big screen tales from the diamond. It was an honor to have David on the show, and we hope you all enjoy!
