It’s SUMMER and Michael is on vacation so we’re replaying one of our favorite shows: Comedian, author, playwright, activist, animal lover and long-time standup comedian Steve Bluestein has a wonderfully funny conversation with Anne. Steve has performed on television, in film and on stage. His newest project, a play called, How To Kill Your Mother Without Really Trying (A Farce By A Resentful Son) Part 1A just had one of its first Staged Readings (and was gloriously reviewed by attendees) is just one of the many topics. Steve’s new book, It’s So Hard To Type With A Gun In My Mouth is a non-stop riot and so is the conversation! Also: The Oscars, Politics and International Women’s Day.
Songs include: Ain’t No Rest for The Wicked
A large gathering of well bred (and well fed) old-ish White people listen to a live radio broadcast, Nathaniel Hathorne (NO “W”), Garrison Keillor and American songs lead off this week’s show while the Big Crazy (Marcus Bachmann), station wagons and ice cream cones help to define what America really is in 2011. We spend time talking about how we got here discussing President Obama, Gertrude Stein, Woody Allen movies, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, baked beans and Hot Dog eating contests. Also Michael does not seem to know where chicken comes from. Plus: Meet Julien Havard.
Songs include: Stars and Stripes Forever and American Woman
Independence Day on Cape Cod is an amazing thing made even more spectacular when you spend some time with Anne Levine. Anne creates audio fireworks interviewing and Amy Pole, Brain Cancer survivor and activist – creator of the new COOKSTRONG cookbook and Anne’s 2 1/2 year old nephew Jack. Also sparkling amongst these glittering subjects are: Bristol Palin’s acting debut, Chelsea Clinton’s upcoming nuptials and what it’s really like to spend the 4th of July in the land where our country was founded. Plus, Anne suggests that Michael wear a helmet, a competitive eating “champion” goes berserk and Canada Day.
Songs include: Baseball Boogie
