If it was Janie and Erika would the Menendez Sisters still be in jail??

I speak to author Robert Rand about his book The Menendez Murders: The Shocking Untold Story Of The Menendez Family and the killings that stunned the nation. Robert told the facts in an unbiased way, late into the book do you see what he really believes. I highly recommend. 
Robert was there from day 1 so he is an encyclopedia of all things about The Menendez murders and brothers. There was a renewed interest in The Menendez Murders because of Law and Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders. Robert was a consultant for the show. Robert tells us of his visits with Lyle and Eriks Aunt Marta, and his meetings with both brothersbeforethey were arrested. He also spoke to them a lot when they were in jail. He even became a part of the story. Robert sat next to the famous crime writer Dominick Dunne during both trials.  Journey behind the scenes into one of the country's most famous crimes/trials and hear what happened after the trials ended. We talked a little over 2 hours so I broke them down to three parts. 
I want to thank Robert for being such a great guest. I learned so many new things.  
I want to thank the listeners. You are the best!

I had a great time talking movies with my friend Leah who has the fabulous blog, Cary Grant Won't Eat You.. We talked obsessive love. Poor Edward G Robinson in Scarlet Street. Claude Rains obsessive and blinded by love feelings for Alicia played by Ingrid Bergman. Cary Grant was not very nice to Ingrid until the end of the movie.We also talked Suspicion and Lina's obsession with Johnny. Did Johnny kill the wonderful Beeky, and why did he need an untraceable poison if he was going to kill himself. We talk the book and the changes they made for the movie that Alfred Hitchcock was not happy with. One tidbit in the book is that Cary/Johnny had a fling with the maid Ethel. Maybe that's why she got the fox fur stole and Beeky only got a walking stick. We also discuss the ending that was a huh?? WE then got into another Hitchcock film talking about Mrs Danvers incredibly unhealthy obsession with the late Mrs de Winter also known as Rebecca. Who can forget her creepily showing the new Mrs de Winter Rebeccas see through lingerie. Maxim was not very nice to wife number 2 with no name. It looks like he eventually stops being a pompous poop at the end.. It was a fast moving fun show

Thanks to Leah for once again being a great guest.

Donnie and I were reunited and it felt so good..Not only were we in the house so was our guest, writer Spencer Jones. She wrote an article on what its like to attend a Sex party in NYC. Yes, I read it and I thought what a great guest she'd be and I was right. We talk the do's and don'ts of applying to join the group. What its like inside the place and various different rooms. Spencer tells us about the symbian and whats its like to ride it. They put fresh plastic after each ride and you must wear a piece of clothing on your nether regions while you ride em cowgirl..Men, sorry, you need a woman with you to enter. Single men are a no no. They have rules and have monitors keeping an eye on the crowd to make sure things are AOK. You can not just watch a couple, you must ask permission. 
The funny part of the interview was Donny. He was NEVER so engaged with a guest. He introduced her by name, had actually READ the article I sent him and asked her most of the questions. He had popcorn and was chowing down like a monster hound in between words. He was leaning into Spencer the whole show and his face was beet red. I swear he was drooling. I truly think that was not a gun in his pocket and he was glad to see Spencer. I needed to hose that guy down. It was all in good fun as we three drank wine and laughed a lot. When Donnie left the room he pointed to me and him and said we are going with Spencer. He's a Donnie on a mission. Sex Party or bust..

Thanks so much to Spencer for coming on the show. You were wonderful. I'll post the article below..

Thanks so much to our listeners. We love you!

We opened with some serious talk about the importance of getting mammograms. Also teen suicide. How it can be very hard for parents to see the signs. Then we got onto the midterm elections, a woman making major change selling her smelly socks and shoes. We discussed starting up a stinky undies biz. HA!! We were just joking.....really..I think.. Also Oprah canvassing for Stacey Abrams In Georgia, Justin Bieber has the blues (I hope its not about being a lizard man) a woman that got breast implants because her creepy ex boyfriend said he didn't like her body. What was worse was when she moved her arms her boobs sounded like she was farting..Tons more.
Thanks for listening. We love ya,

I had such a great time talking to Greg. He has met people from the classic horror genre and written some great books. We talked Boris Karloff and what a sweetie he was. Also what bothered him so much in Frankenstein that he regretted his entire life. We talk Bela Lugosi and his charming Dracula, Cat People, The Black Cat and so much more. Then he gives us his choices for a fun Halloween (or anytime) viewing..

Thanks so much to Greg for being such a great guest..He is welcome back anytime. He has written a number of wonderful books and will be releasing a biography on Dr Frankenstein himself, Colin Clive..

Thanks to my listeners. I really appreciate you giving a listen..

I had such a fabulous time talking to Meredith Ponedel about her Aunt Dorothy Ponedel. Dorothy was the first female makeup artists under contract  at a Hollywood Studio. She became friends with many of her clients. Marlene Dietrich, Carole Lombard ,Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Blondell, Paulette Goddard, Gary Cooper. There are so many wonderful stories. Her aunt started writing her memoir but never finished. Meredith did a fabulous job of putting it all together. Meredith describes her life with Aunt Dottie and her own thoughts on the stars she met personally. there is  part 2 about the friendship between Dottie and Judy Garland..I got a huge scoop I had never heard before and learned a new meaning for the word yummy. This is an interview for any classic movie fan. So much behind the scenes info. Meredith takes us back into the land of Classic Hollywood. Any documentary filmmakers Dottie is a story to be told.Thanks so much for Meredith getting up 6 AM to do this interview.  You were so fabulous and funny..
Thanks to all the listeners. I know you enjoy Meredith as much as I did.

We spoke to Romola Hodas about her book The Princess of 42nd Street: Surviving My Childhood With The Times Square King Of Porn. A lot of her dads  life is being portrayed in the HBO series The Deuce..
What a story. The book is so compelling. I read it in one sitting. Romola is very honest about her life with her dad Marty Hodas, Times Squares King Of Porn. She also survived having a mentally ill mother. As the oldest she became the protector of her sisters and brother. She takes us on a journey that makes you feel you are living it with her. She talks the swingers parties her folks would have while the kids were home. Meeting the women behind the peep booths and so much more. She is so honest. Very good listen. 
Thanks so much to Romala for coming on our show and being a fabulous guest. 
Most thanks go to our listeners. Who loves ya baby..We do
