A perfect show for show biz fans

Frank and Gilbert bring the fact and the laughs with guests that span the decades of film and tv history. You’ll be amazed at how hard you’ll laugh at bits you need a Wikipedia search to understand.

Never been so insulted in my life listening to this radio station. Whoops I meant podcast. It’s like watching a train accident I can’t keep my eyes away. I have to listen to every show no matter how foul and vulgar it is. The show is intriguing and I learn something every time ,I didn’t realize how many Jews they were in the business.
I didn’t realize people swore like that all the time, I didn’t realize what it was like living in New York ,I guess being from the Midwest. I’ve Binge listening as much as I can,at least three shows a day.
Keep it up Gilbert and Frank and the rest.
