Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews actors John Belushi and Donald Sutherland, and director John Landis about their latest work, Animal House. Discussion centers on the film's characters before the conversation diverges to focus on Willie Nelson, who Belushi greets on camera and who Landis claims to have had a double bar mitzvah ceremony with as a boy.

Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC affiliate KXAN.)

These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.

Willie Nelson was born in Abbot, Texas on April 29, 1933.  He is a world renowned country music singer and musician, as well as an actor, activist, and author.   His most famous country albums include Shotgun Willie (1973), Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978).  Nelson popularized the “outlaw country” subgenre along with Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings, and has written some of the most famous country music songs recorded, including Patsy Cline’s “Crazy,” which he wrote at the ripe age of 19, “On the Road Again,” and “Pancho and Lefty.”  His primary musical collaboration is with Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and Waylon Jennings, performing as the Highwaymen, among many others.  Nelson was named the honorary chairman of the advisory board of the official music charity of the state of Texas, the Texas Music Project, for his philanthropic work in and outside the music community.  He was also inducted to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993 and received a 1998 Kennedy Center Honor. 
 
Nelson has also advocated for marijuana legalization, biodiesel alternative fuel, and is a supporter of democratic campaigns, such as Dennis Kuchinich’s 2004 run.  He also founded the annual fundraiser Farm Aid, which benefits the local, American, small farmer, and has featured multitudes of musicians of different genres.
