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”.

Episode #37 – The MUSIC Show with SARAH PARTRIDGE!

 

Last week’s show was all movies, this week’s show is all music…and our special guest is none other than jazz singer Sarah Partridge, who just happens to be Gary’s lovely wife! Sarah talks about her brand new CD, I Never Thought I’d Be Here (available NOW on Amazon), and her inspiration for writing the album. PLUS, if you think Sarah looks a little bit familiar, wait until you hear what movie she appeared in, and on what TV shows you may have heard her voice on…you won’t believe it! Then, Tony presents some music he thinks we all need to hear, and Gary does the same, in his new (old) segment, I Hear Dead People. A real toe-tappin’ episode!

Episode #36 – The MOVIE Show with KEVIN McCARTHY!

 

Tony and Gary get to geek out with the nation’s #1 movie geek, Kevin McCarthy, of Fox and Friends and Fox 5 in Washington, D.C.! The guys talk all things movies, and Kevin tells about meeting his movie stars and movie-making idols, including Steven Spielberg, who asked Kevin to make a movie for him!!! Also, Kevin previews this year’s most talked-about movies (including Furious 7, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Entourage). PLUS: Tony informs Gary that the name “Gary” is no longer popular. Another jam-packed show!

Episode #35 – Flippin’ for Dr. Brunswick!

 

In this CRAZY episode, Gary gives Tony a gift that only a REALLY close friend would dare to give. (And even then….!!) Plus, riddled with issues, Tony requires yet another visit from renowned West Coast psychiatrist, Dr. Lionel Brunswick. AND….comic/hypnotist FLIP ORLEY stops by to share his wild road to a life of comedy, hypnosis, divorce, and some WILD tattoos! Also: can’t we all just get along?

The Tony Perkins Show – Episode #33 – May Pang

 

May Pang was John Lennon’s girlfriend from late 1973 to early 1975, while Lennon was separated from his wife, Yoko Ono. In fact, it was Ono who set the two up! In this warm and illuminating conversation, May describes what the time that Lennon later described as his “Lost Weekend” was really like. She details just how creative he was during this time (the LPs “Mind Games”, “Walls and Bridges”, and “Rock and Roll” are from this period). Even more significantly, she talks about helping Lennon re-establish his relationships with his first son, Julian, and with Paul McCartney. Amazing stuff!

Also: Tony and Gary talk about the essence of male competition, road-rage, and throwing out your back!

Episode #32 – Love, Sex, and Show Tunes!

 

On the first truly R-rated episode of the show, Tony and Gary welcome Angela Stribling, the gorgeous host of WHUR-FM’s Pillow Talk with Angela, so she can answer their questions….and YOURS (!)….about love, sex, and relationships! Needless to say, it gets heated AND hysterical–especially when the attention turns to Rob Ford and his questions! Also: the healing power of show tunes!

(Pillow Talk with Angela can be heard Fridays at midnight on Washington D.C.’s 96.3 WHUR-FM, and Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at midnight (that’s EARLY Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) on Sirius/XM Channel 141, HUR Voices.)

Episode #31 – Rob’s Big Date and CNN’s Bill Weir!

 

Please don’t misread that title. Rob Ford’s Washington Post “Date Lab” date was NOT with CNN’s Bill Weir! However, this episode features BOTH! First: Rob fills us in on his big “Date Lab” night out with the lovely “Megan”. Then, Gary and Tony talk to their friend, journalist Bill Weir, about his new CNN series “The Wonder List”. Also, Tony tries to stump Gary with a game of Movie Trivia, AND Tony announces his decision about his cell phone situation. Stop the presses!

Episode #30 – My Funny Valentine

 

Maybe it’s because it’s Valentine’s Day, but Tony and Gary wind up–quite unexpectedly–talking about their relationship and some of the ups and downs they’ve been through together. It’s rather revealing! Also: the trouble with today’s law students; the secret history of Lysol; Tony’s TUBE-tacular television; and Gary has an Uncomfortable Moment with…..a Star’s Dog!

Rob Ford updates Gary and Tony on his Washington Post “Date Lab” experience; Tony takes his Mom to the doctor, with interesting results; Gary gives Tony a gift that presents him with quite a dilemma; Gary attempts to help Tony with his “issues” by calling a psychiatrist (!!!); and music from Meghan Trainor and….Bing Crosby???
