Celebrating A Milestone

Over the weekend, one of our longtime hosts Mr. Media, (Bob Andelman by day), hit an impressive milestone, 400,000 downloads!mrmedia1

Since bringing his show on board with BlogTalkRadio back in the fall of 2007, Mr. Media has welcomed a variety of all star guests, from all facets of media: from your favorite television stars, to journalists and comics, to authors, comedians, and more.

Here are some of Mr. Media’s favorite moments from the past year on air, straight from the horse’s mouth:

Most Musical Guest: Oh, I know she plays the accordion everywhere she goes, but comedian Judy Tenuta (July 30, 2009) was the first guest who sang to me. And she was damn funny.

Best Behind-the-Scenes Guest: Emmy Award-nominated makeup and costume designer Debbie Zoller (August 17, 2009) gave “Mad Men” fans such as myself an insider’s view of AMC’s hit show in the days leading up to the ceremony.

Sweetest Guest: Easy one: Chinese actress Bai Ling (September 25, 2009). I had my qualms ahead of time that we might have trouble communicating, but she was charming, intelligent and a delight. And she sent me a nice note after the fact, which is highly unusual.

“I got cast for Love Ranch, for which they originally wanted someone with big boobs, blonde hair, 20 years old—and totally a white girl,” she tells host Bob Andelman.

“But I got it. And I’m pretty happy to play a white woman’s part,” adds Bai, whose latest flick, A Beautiful Life, co-stars Debi Mazar and Dana Delany, and opens Oct. 2.
