In the early 1980's, Pac-Man was a wildly successful arcade game that took the world by storm. Some of the things inspired by Pac-Man included a cartoon, a board game, breakfast cereal, and a hit pop song that reached #9 on the Hot 100 Billboard Pop chart! That song was "Pac-Man Fever", and it was created by Buckner and Garcia.
In 1982, Buckner and Garcia followed up the success of "Pac-Man Fever" with an entire album of songs inspired by video games, also entitled "Pac-Man Fever".
In this episode: Jerry Buckner discusses the success of "Pac-Man Fever", a series of near misses, and fascinating behind the scenes stories about being a songwriter, jingle writer, and voiceover artist.
