Like his hugely successful films and television show, Tyler Perry’s Guest DJ Project set on KCRW is a tribute to his Southern roots and explores the inner workings of relationships with insightful humor. The writer, director and producer, whose latest hit film “Why Did I Get Married Too?” was released last week, dedicates two of his five song picks to his mother, who passed away last year. He also explains the major role music plays in his writing process. His latest film is “Why Did I Get Married Too.”
The set is available streaming, for download and as a podcast. You can hear all of his picks (and read the transcript) on KCRW.com here.
Coming up soon: “The Big Bang Theory” actor Jim Parsons, author Audrey Niffenegger, “The Losers” Director Sylvain White, “choreographer Fatima Robinson, actress Melora Hardin, New Yorker cartoonist and “former Seinfeld” scribe Bruce Eric Kaplan and more.
