Episode 13: Andy Marx

© Josh Mills. All Rights Reserved.

Today on the Rarified Heir Podcast we are deviating slightly from our format of interviewing the children of celebrities as we are talking to the grandchildren of celebrities and boy do we have a good reason. Today we are talking to Andy Marx who has not just one incredible grandfather but two. Andy is the grandson of the amazing Groucho Marx as well as songwriter Gus Kahn. Whoa. Andy gives us the lowdown on what it was like spending time with Groucho archiving his hit TV show “You Bet Your Life” and how common it was to have guests over for dinner like Jack Nicholson, Elliott Gould and Marcel Marceau. But just as amazing was his other grandfather Gus wrote such Great American Songbook standards as “It Had To Be You”, “Dream a Little Dream of Me,”“Makin’ Whoopie” and so many others. Want to find out what was it like having Seder with Ron Wood, Ahmet Ertegun one day and  Alice Cooper and Shep Gordon the next? Uh, yeah. We talk song pluggers, tea boys, conservatorships and Tin Pan Alley on the next Rarified Heir Podcast. But only if you say the secret word…..
