"Hey. It's me." Nothing says relaxing like an old friends voice. We share. We gloat. Heck, we even lie a little. So c’mon tell me something I don’t already know. Because hey, its only Paul…how dangerous could this get?  -Kyle Prater, Poet

 

FEATURED SESSION

Stand-Up Comedian Tom Dreesen

Tom Dreesen is a man who has found the recipe for good health and happiness.  His prescription is that you do it 10 times a day.  He wants you to laugh.  


Like the song popularized by his friend the late Frank Sinatra, Tom Dreesen "took a few blows," but he definitely "lived a life that's full."  

In this interview Tom shares his story with us, and it is an inspiring one.  


Sinatra called himself "a saloon singer" and his friend Tom Dreesen "a saloon comedian."  Dreesen has made over 500 national television appearances, including many on The Late Show with David Letterman.  A friend of Dave's, Tom Dreesen has even hosted the show in Dave's absence.  A stand-up comedian, emcee, motivational speaker, and sometimes actor, he still considers himself a neighborhood guy.  

 

UPCOMING SESSION

Singer-Songwriter Brigitte Zarie

The corporate jet; a smooth, classy, sophisticated ride to the perfect finish. How nice that would be. If you possess a millionaire’s taste but lack the assets, perhaps you will prefer a smooth, classy, sophisticated ride on the vocal wings of Brigitte Zarie. The timeless style of her sound is evocative of the big band era but is blessedly placed in our day, with a flawless fit. Brigitte positively purrs her own crooner anthems with a certain authority and power that escapes simple description. Her writing is on par with those wonderful evergreen tones; honest, charming and memorable. We wouldn’t have expected anything else from greatness. So strap into your seats for a talk with Brigitte Zarie, as she takes us on an singer-songwriter’s flight through memories, notions and brilliant conversation non-stop to great enjoyment.

Elliot Mintz: A Sound Portrait

Elliot Mintz is a former radio and television personality who went on to become a media consultant for many well-known celebrities and CEOs. I cannot think of anyone in the business they sometimes call the Hollywood “entertainment industry” who has grabbed my attention quite like Elliot Mintz. I cannot really think of many people who would not find him interesting…years ago when he represented a lot of the A-list celebrities like Paris Hilton, he seemed a million miles away from my own life. Then there was the many recordings I heard of his nationally syndicated radio program, “The Lost Lennon Tapes” that played rare alternate takes, composition tapes and interviews of Elliot’s friend John Lennon. John Lennon along with maybe Frank Sinatra or Elvis Presley may be the only people in the history of popular music with enough interest that an entire radio series could be devoted to them. You may think Paris Hilton and John Lennon are worlds apart, but you have to understand Elliot Mintz.  Click here for more...
