In June of 2010, I had the pleasure of speaking with R2D2 actor Kenny Baker via mobile phone. The sound quality isn't all that great, but it was a very fun conversation. This was quite early on in my podcasting career, and among the first interviews I'd ever done. -- The Brutal One
This classic moment of Dark Empire Radio takes us back to May 2010, when Lord Bruticus and his co-host at the time, Lord Draconis, spoke with Dave Prowse, the actor who wore the Darth Vader costume in all three of the original Star Wars films.
The first installment of a new recurring feature of small episodes on Dark Empire Radio, "Classic DER" goes back in time to the early days of the podcast and revisits some great celebrity interviews.
In this first installment, The Brutal One "chats" with Admiral Motti himself, the late Richard LeParmentier.

Joe and Robert are joined by guest Allen Voivod of the very cool “Star Wars 7x7” podcast! After a few usual news bytes from the fan side of the Star Wars galaxy, our audio ride along the dark side kicks in the hyperdrive motivator into high gear, as we talk about what makes Star Wars a modern day classic, using part of a piece written by a fan and presented on the BBC, as impetus for our discussion. The piece from the BBC, written and presented in audio format by Helen McDonald was so inspiring, The Brutal One felt compelled to share it in its entirety at the end of this podcast episode; that doesn't happen often when it comes to The Brutal One, so it must be good! All of that, plus our second installment (and first time recorded live) of “Are You Smarter Than a Sith Lord?” and much more await you in this very fun episode of DER. So hit that “play” button already!

After a few news bits on the fan side of the Force, co-host Robert Jenner heads up a fun new recurring gameshow-style segment, called "Are You Smarter Than a Sith Lord?" John's Question of the Day also returns; be sure to leave your answer for John in the comments section of this episode on darkempireradio.com! All of that and more make this another great audio ride along the dark side brought to you by the dark-sidedly delightful podcast team here at DER!
