M.O.C.H.A.A. is a dishy delight
M.O.C.H.A.A., which stands for "Man of a Certain Hue And Age", is a fabulously entertaining showbiz podcast featuring two veteran entertainment journalists, Bobby Rivers and Keith Price. The pair have a wonderfully self-deprecating sense of humor married with deep industry knowledge that they deploy to hilarious and enlightening effect. This show is a particular delight for fans of classic movies and TCM, as the hosts are clearly aficionados of Old Hollywood.
This is one of those those rare podcasts where I actively seek out and listen to every episode. M.O.C.H.A.A. deserves a wider audience!
