In the '50s, Richard Adler collaborated with his partner, Jerry Ross, on the Broadway musicals Damn Yankees and The Pajama Game. A composer and lyricist, Adler later became an impresario and organizer of events.

He is the author of the memoir You Gotta Have Heart. Currently, there is a new Broadway staging of The Pajama Game, starring Harry Connick Jr., and Michael McKean.

This interview originally aired on August 9, 1990.
