Episode #55 – Shining Stars!


Recently, Tony and Gary noticed that SEVERAL guests who have appeared on the show have suddenly had BIG things happen in their careers. So the natural conclusion that we have come to is: Tony and Gary are STAR MAKERS! And in THIS all-new episode, we force these stars to admit it! On this show: DONNIE SIMPSON tells us about his long-awaited return to radio (at MAJIC 102.3 in D.C.) and TV (on the TV One cable network); “Fox 5 News Morning” anchor ANNIE YU tells us about her cameo in the movie “PIXELS”; and ANGELA STRIBLING tells us about the expansion of her radio show, “Pillow Talk with Angela”, from one night a week to FIVE nights a week (on 96.3 WHUR-FM, and on Sirius/XM Channel 141)! Aren’t these guys doing great?! Don’t they owe us money or something?!

PLUS: Laughs galore, as Gary and Tony kiss up to Donnie, Rob Ford “role plays” with Angela, and Annie Yu sings! This episode is….wait for it….CHOCK FULL!

Episode #54 – MICKY DOLENZ!


Part TWO of our “1st Anniversary Extravaganza” stars Micky Dolenz of The Monkees!!! Micky talks candidly about the evolution of The Monkees, who were one of the best-selling acts of the ’60s. He also talks about hanging out with The Beatles, his recent sellout shows in New York (and why they scared him so much), and his upcoming concerts (this month!) with fellow Monkee, Peter Tork.

HOWEVER, before Tony and Gary talk with Micky, they have an amazing (and crazy!) phone interview with….DONALD TRUMP! Yes, you read that right.

This episode is NOT TO BE MISSED!

Episode #53 – My Girl, Mary Ann


Part ONE of our “1st Anniversary Extravaganza” stars Dawn Wells, better known as “Mary Ann” on “Gilligan’s Island”! Dawn tells wonderful stories about the creation, production, and lasting impact of the show, and answers (or tries to answer) some long-standing questions about the show: For example, why did the Howells and Ginger bring so many changes of clothes on “a three hour tour”? And, we test Dawn’s knowledge of the show with a “Gilligan’s Island” trivia quiz!

PLUS (and this is a BIG plus)! Special guests Robb Spewak and Oscar Santana join in the festivities! Get ready to Google some really obscure references!!!

Episode #52 – Paul Provenza, Comedian


Tony and Gary talk comedy with stand-up great Paul Provenza, host of TV’s “The Green Room” and “The Set List”, and the director of the great comedy film “The Aristocrats”. Paul gives us great, hilarious inside takes on all of those projects, and the guys get downright serious about the business of making people laugh. Plus, live stand-up from one of the guys’ favorite comedians, the late, great, Mitch Hedberg. AND…..WHEN does water expire???

Episode #51 – I’m Not Dead Yet!


They know they’re a week late, but Tony and Gary describe their unusual 4th of July weekends; we feature the latest supermarket tabloids, which ALL seem to be predicting the soon-to-occur-deaths of several notable celebrities; Gary tells us about some “Loony Laws” that are (or recently were) still on the books; and Tony brings us NEW music by both Leon Bridges and Dawes! It’s fun galore!

Episode #50 – Is He Right In The Head?


The laughs are nearly non-stop in one of our funniest episodes ever! Among the MANY topics covered: Rob Ford describes his VERY bad day; Which of your five senses would you be willing to give up?; Haley Joel Osment; “Forrest Gump”; the NIGHTMARE of the P.E. Locker Room Showers; “Searching for Sugarman”; and Gary’s date with Shirley MacLaine’s daughter! RoFo fans, you’re going to LOVE this one!

Episode #49 – Happy 4th of July!


Our TPGS celebration of Independence Day features inspiring, patriotic words from, arguably, two of our WORST movie presidents ever! Plus, author and activist Mark Dice hits the streets of California to find out just what people know about why we celebrate Independence Day…and it isn’t pretty! So this inspires Tony and Gary to conduct their first-ever “man on the street” interviews!

Also: Mega-Beatles collector Russ Lease tells us about the recently discovered John Lennon guitar that’s been missing for 50 years. YOU could possibly buy it! (IF you’re EXTREMELY rich!)

Episode #48 – Tony & Gary & Gary & Sam & Sal & Junior


Gary brings in a doctor to help Tony with his bald spot! Perhaps unsurprisingly, the doctor is NOT of much help! Also, Gary’s writing and acting partner from his Hollywood days, the very funny Sam Ingraffia, joins the guys IN STUDIO; together, Sam and Gary describe what it’s like to almost make it in Hollywood. (In fact, they almost made it SEVERAL times!)

Plus: The TRUE story of “Sal and Junior”, pictured here in their younger days!

This episode is hilarious AND humiliating!
