Episode #43 – Stumped!

 

In his apparent on-going effort to embarrass and humiliate his partner, Gary quizzes Tony yet again, this time with the “Tony Perkins Even HARDER Music Trivia Game”. Let’s just say the results aren’t pretty! Plus: a truly odd TV commercial; what your iPhone won’t do; gifts for Gary; our first-ever “Embarrassing Celebrity Encounter” from one of our listeners (!); and, sadly, what may be the final update from Rob about his “Date Lab” adventure.

Episode #42 – Good Night, Dave

 

Tony and Gary salute David Letterman, as he steps down from the “Late Show with David Letterman”, and ends his 33 years on late night TV on May 20th. And renowned “TV Guide” critic Matt Roush joins the guys to help put the Letterman era in perspective.

Plus: Tony describes a very uncomfortable experience that makes him feel like a creepy old man; Gary tests just how “worldly” Tony is with a new game, “The Worldly World of Tony Perkins”; and both guys present, for your amusement and amazement, the WORST POP SONGS EVER. You will not believe how bad at least one of these songs is!

Episode #41 – DONNIE SIMPSON!

 

In this uproarious and special episode, broadcasting legend Donnie Simpson sits in with the guys for nearly the entire show. Donnie spent over 30 years as the KING of D.C. radio, first at WKYS-FM, and then at WPGC-FM. He was also the original (and best) host of BET’s “Video Soul” for nearly 15 years. Tony was Donnie’s morning show producer and on-air sidekick at WKYS for eight years, and this episode marks their first long-form reunion in many, many years. 30 years of friendship and laughter shine through, as Donnie tells amazing and hilarious stories about his years in broadcasting, and his encounters with such stars as Michael Jackson.

Episode #40 – A Real Lulu

 

Tony has challenged Gary with movie trivia games on previous episodes. In this show, Gary finally strikes back with “The Tony Perkins REALLY Hard Music Trivia Game”! And boy, does it live up to it’s name! Plus, an update on Rob Ford’s dating life; why Gary smells like candy; and Tony’s son Connor calls into the show! Fun galore!

Episode #39 – The Fighter

 

As boxing fans gear up for the May 2nd ‘Mayweather vs. Paquiao’ fight in Las Vegas, Tony and Gary talk to former WBU Light Welterweight Champion MICKY WARD. Ward’s story was made famous in the fantastic 2010 film “The Fighter”, starring Mark Wahlberg as Ward. In a very candid (and surprisingly funny) conversation, Ward talks about his career, including his classic 2002-2003 trilogy of fights with Arturo Gatti, his subsequent friendship with Gatti, and the plans to make a sequel to “The Fighter”. Ward also reveals surprising information on how he’s doing now, and he weighs in on Mayweather/Paquiao.

Oh, yeah, we almost forgot. Gary and Tony also engage in an uproarious chat about “Blaxploitation” movies, and whether or not there should be a black James Bond. This episode is rated “Not PC”! Enjoy!

Episode #38 – RINGO!!!

 

Our SPECIAL GUEST for this episode has been, for 50 years, one of the most famous people on the planet. He’s “the act you’ve known for all these years,” Mr. RINGO STARR!!! On the occasion of both his April 18th induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist, and the release of his well-reviewed new album “Postcards From Paradise”, Tony and Gary sat down with Ringo in Los Angeles to talk about his amazing life. Our hosts have actually known Ringo personally for fifteen years, and the rapport that the three have with each other makes this conversation a truly special and fun delight.

In addition, Gary and Tony play revealing excerpts from their many interviews with Ringo from over the years, AND describe how cool it was to do the interview at Capitol Records, U.S. home of The Beatles, in one of the most historic recording studios on the planet. PLUS, not to be missed, Gary surprises Tony with a remarkable “gift” from Ringo. It’s pretty special.

Enjoy, friends. “A Splendid Time is Guaranteed for All.”

Celebrity Showcase II – Danny Aiello & Charlie Gibson

 

Tony and Gary showcase two more of their favorite interviews with two bold celebrities, Danny Aiello and Charlie Gibson. First, Tony and Gary talk with Gary’s unofficial godfather and real Renaissance man: Academy Award nominated actor Danny Aiello. Danny talks candidly about his career as a film, stage, and TV actor, his love of singing, his roles in movies like Do the Right Thing and Moonstruck, and his 40-year-plus friendship with Gary.

Next, Charlie Gibson (who worked with Tony and Gary from 1999-2005 on ABC’s Good Morning America alongside Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts) spotlights his ingenious wit and rarely seen unmatched sense of humor as Tony and Gary reminisce about compelling moments they shared at GMA (both good and bad) in a wickedly funny, yet honest tone that suggests (in the words of Charlie Gibson) “adversity builds collegiality”.
