Crispin Glover on 669

Posted By on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 3:30 PM


Crispin Glover was in town Friday to screen two of his films at the Cineamtheque and do some early plugging for his upcoming role in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

He stopped by the WCSB 89.3 FM studios to appear on 669, a longrunning cult show that plays like an underground, heavy-metal version of The Howard Stern Show.

Glover talked to host Sweetass Sassafrass until the wee hours. The actor appeared on 669 the last time he was in town, in May 2008.

“He said he doesn't like doing many radio interviews,” says Sassafrass, also known as Craig Callander. “But he [said he] would do 669 because he enjoyed the listening audience reaction so much and felt that it was a great outlet to discuss what he is trying to accomplish in his films with people who ‘get it.’ He had been up since 5 a.m., but he still stayed in studio until 2:45.”
