Jeff & Ryan welcome Executive Producer and Head Writer, John Rappaport to MASH Matters! We trace John’s illustrious career from his early radio days with the legendary Gary Owens to writing for All In The Family, The Odd Couple, and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. Along the way, we discuss the comedy stylings of Joe Namath, the origin of Private Igor’s last name, and that one time when he tried to kill off Trapper John!
