County music superstar Phil Vassar will be Tom Needham's special guest this Thursday at 6 P.M. on WUSB's the Sounds of Film.

In order to keep his new-found fame, he relies on a team of super "smellers" and tasters to fake his reviews. Chasing Taste, directed by Sean Gannet, is the winner of Best Comedy Film at both the 2013 Burbank International Film Festival and the 2014 Manhattan Film Festival.
