Composer Jeff Richmond talks with Soundcheck Host John Schaefer live in The Greene Space

Jeff Richmond has been working in show business for three decades – most recently, as the composer for the NBC sitcom “30 Rock” (starring his wife, Tina Fey).

He visited The Greene Space back on June 12, 2013 to chat with Soundcheck host John Schaefer about his work as a television composer, including his time as musical director and songwriter for “Saturday Night Live.” He’s currently developing the musical adaptation of the 2004 film “Mean Girls.”

In these videos, he talks about the creation of the hilarious Kidney Song from “30 Rock” and Saturday Night Lives’s parody commercial for Mom Jeans.
