Rock Candy took over a year to get off the ground. It took, and takes a lot of time and energy to produce the show. When I started the show in March 1995, I only had one other person helping me with the production of the show and that was my son. It is still pretty much the same with the exception of a couple others that lend an occasional hand on our bigger productions.

If you read the credits at the end of the show, you see many names in what seems like a fairly large production crew. Everything listed is some part of the production that needs to be attended to, worked on, and or planned out in order to produce the show. Since the show is on Public Access television, and now online, every aspect of the shows production is done on a volunteer basis since it is a nonprofit venture. To find even a couple individuals to volunteer their time to any sort of production is hard to do.

Since 98% of the production work is handled and done by myself, I did not want to see my name over and over on the credits. I did want the viewing audience to see all or most of the aspects that are needed to produce and complete a show. In order to do that, I created a fictitious production crew with the exception of a few individuals. I gathered the names of that crew from characters played in movies by my two favorite actors, James Cagney and Harrison Ford and my favorite actress, Meg Ryan. You can see the fictitious crew listed below the actual individuals that have been a part of the Rock Candy crew throughout the years.
