Retroist BJ and the Bear Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist BJ and the Bear Podcast. On today’s show, I talk about the classic TV show trucking with a chimp comedy, “BJ and the Bear”. I start off talking about my experience with CB Radio and how it became a bit of an obsession. Then I talk about this amazing TV show. I talk about the people who helped make the show, the stars of the show, including that beautiful truck and even more beautiful chimp, the attempted spin-offs, the crossovers, the theme music, where you can find the show today, and much more.
