John Belushi Part 2

Interview with Kate Ruby Klenfner

Welcome back to Not Fade Away podcast! Today’s episode is a bonus/follow up for the popular John Belushi show I produced last time. I am including my full interview with Kate Ruby Klenfner whose father was very close to the Blues Brothers (having signed them to Atlantic Records.)

John and Dan Aykroyd were Kate’s godfathers and she remains close to John’s widow Judy Belushi.

In this ep we discuss:

  • Kate’s early life as the official Saturday Night Live “baby!”
  • How famous John truly was towards the end of his life
  • John’s contribution to music and popular culture
  • Set gossip from The Blues Brothers movie.
  • Chris Farley at Woodstock 94
