The six degrees of separation theory gets a little closer when Chip Davis starts talking about the novelty song 'Convoy' and the phenomenon of Mannheim Steamroller. You see, Davis is the man behind both of these very popular musical happenings. Back in 1975, Davis co-wrote and co-produced the C.W. McCall hit 'Convoy,' which also became a huge hit movie starring Kris Kristofferson, Ali MacGraw and Ernest Borgnine. The Sam Peckinpah-directed film about a mile-long convoy supporting a trucker's vendetta against a not-so-kind sheriff is history, but Mannheim Steamroller's Christmas CD series is now celebrating its 25th anniversary! Steamroller, however, was created in 1975, the same year of 'Convoy,' releasing a series of 'Fresh Aire' compilations.
