    I’m a genius and up close with Jason Bonham

    I’m a genius and up close with Jason Bonham

    During this most unusual time we need to think of smart new ways to stay germ free. I share my thoughts on what I predict will be our new world order (at least for me). I also catch up with Jason Bonham, son of the great Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.

    Did you know that I play the Accordion?

    Yes, yes and yes! Check out this nugget from the 80’s. We’ll talk about ‘Morning Radio’ then-and-now, Hallmark events in my life like this COVID-19. I hope you’ll enjoy, stay safe and know we're gonna get thru this! Peace & Love.

    It's Great To Be Back! Now Get Off My Lawn!

    It's Great To Be Back! Now Get Off My Lawn!

    It’s hard to write a compelling tease for a podcast. So, simply put I’ve been away from the show and I’m back. I hate the time-change, winter and especially the plastic clamshell. I’ll also share a 1998 interview with the late Ray Manzarek of The Doors.

    Comedian Derek Richards is 'Just the right amount of wrong'!

    I caught up with Detroit native and Specs Howard grad, Derek Richards, to talk about the fast-paced, raucous ride across America with four Irish comedians starring in The Irish Comedy Tour. It's St. Patrick's Day every day!

    Les Paul and Bob Seger on the Same Podcast!

    On June 9th we celebrate the great Les Paul's birthday. Les Paul is one of the nicest people I've ever interviewed. On that same Mount Rushmore of Great Guys is Bob Seger. They don't get any nicer. This week there were two events, and I have two stories.

    Stevie Nicks had a crush on me and I can prove it!

    Stevie Nicks had a crush on me and I can prove it!

    That's right, it happened back in 2011. She wrote a song about me called "Secret Love." It was the first single from the 2011 solo release called "In Your Dreams." Look, it's complicated, but I'm telling you it happened. Stevie shares the sad details.
