I’m not sure who said that, but I think it was either Theodore Roosevelt or Shecky Greene… In any case, I concur with the sentiment, which is why I am pleased to announce that yours truly will soon be featured on… (are you sitting down?) … THE LARGEST RADIO NETWORK IN THE WORLD! That’s right, my dear blog followers, thanks to your continued encouragement and support I have now become a “highly sought after personality.” (Which is similar to being on America’s Most Wanted, but different.)
Where was I? Oh yes, the radio program. I have recently formalized a written agreement to be the featured author on “Star Style,” an award-winning radio program now in its 17th season. The program is hosted by Cynthia Brian, (a hugely popular radio personality) and is broadcast by Voice America/World Talk Radio. Here’s the coolest part….. the program is broadcast to 219 countries and has a current listening audience of 4.5 MILLION listeners!
Yikes, I’d better be coherent and glib! Guess why? The show is done LIVE! No rehearsals, no tape, no second chances! (Not much pressure there!) Hopefully, there will only be 3.5 MILLION people listening. (I prefer smaller audiences.) Now for the details…. (I’ll wait while you grab a pen and paper) OK, here goes….. The LIVE 20-minute interview will be broadcast on Wednesday, November 12, 2014. The show comes on at 4-5 p.m. Pacific Time, which means that my Texas friends will hear it 3 hours later. (My interview slot has been assigned a specific time, which is 7:15 to 7:40 p.m. EASTERN TIME.)
MORE GOOD NEWS… If you do not own a radio, or have dinner plans on November 12th, you can access the entire interview on the radio station’s archive site. (Which means that you can listen to it over and over, like I’m going to do.) All you have to do is get your hands on a computer and go to: http://www.VoiceAmerica.com/show/2206/be-the-star-you-are
So what else is new? As a public service I would like to remind you of the symptoms of Ebola. The virus will cause headaches, feelings of nausea, and is difficult to get rid of. (Much like a politician.) I’m starting to think that Kim Jong Un, the North Korean dictator, might have contracted the disease. The poor guy has vanished! He didn’t even go to George Clooney’s wedding. The North Koreans sent his daughter, Kim Kardashi Un.
The head of the Secret Service was recently fired. (She had to jump over the White House fence to turn in her office keys!) The whacko that broke into the White House was inside a lot longer than we were told. He was there long enough to be appointed Acting Secretary of Agriculture! Then the President gets on an elevator with a civilian who was carrying a loaded weapon. Thank God Ray Rice wasn’t on the elevator!
Chelsea Clinton’s new daughter just uttered her first word! She reportedly said, “I-O-W-A.”
The government of Turkey has finally announced that it will join America’s fight against ISIS. Unfortunately, they didn’t indicate whose side they will be on. But do not fear! Those cold-blooded bastards in ISIS will soon surrender to us. They were recently told that Sylvester Stallone is contemplating another “Rocky” movie. (Their leader supposedly said, “How much can we take!”)
Today I find myself in sunny Florida, basking on the beach in Boca Raton. We have had 5 days of perfect weather, and the food has been outstanding. We are eating lots of bagels and have seen some “bay-gulls” flying around. I have also seen many bikini-clad women, and surprisingly, most of them DO NOT want their photographs taken… even from behind. What’s the story with that? I told one lady that I will take just one shot, and then we’ll see what “develops.” (She threatened to take one shot at me!)
Well, I must leave you now… we are off to see my sister, Jan, down in Fort Lauderdale. Which reminds me, today’s blog is dedicated to a very special man who recently passed away. My smart and talented brother-in-law (Larry Baum) recently lost his favorite uncle, who was one of the sweetest and kindest men I ever met. So this one’s for you, Heshy!
And as for the rest of you… please have a safe and joyous week! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog, and we shall meet again soon. Love to all…
P.S. I forgot to mention that my upcoming radio interview will be covering THE SECOND MOURNING, my non-fiction book. The host just finished reading the book and loved it, so that will be our main emphasis.
