Sometimes the “match” between interviewer and interviewee just doesn’t work. We sent our very British producer Emma to the City by the Bay to interview legendary baseball Hall of Famer Willie Mays. Emma had read up on the “Say Hey” Kid but it’s hard to cram a lifetime’s worth of baseball knowledge into an interview prep packet. Perhaps Emma didn’t know exactly what outfield position Willie played or when the Giants made the move from New York to San Francisco, but Willie and Emma just didn’t connect. And Willie just wouldn’t play ball that afternoon. After we sent box sets of some of Willie’s favorite TV Land shows, Willie was in better spirits! Hey, Willie – how was that first season of HUNTER?
