spike-lee1Spike Lee: The director spends a full hour with The Knicks Blog host Anthony Donahue, chatting about his hometown team. And when asked if he was upset that the Knicks didn’t land LeBron James, Spike says no—“Because if somebody doesn’t want to be here, then you don’t want them.”

The Best of BlogTalkRadio this Week

Harry Shearer

Harry Shearer

This is probably my best week yet at BlogTalkRadio. I’m meeting more and more of the hosts every day and appreciate all who have written notes of welcome and support. I also got to spend time on the air this week and that was fun – something I hope to do a lot more of in the future. But BlogTalkRadio isn’t about me. It’s about you, the listeners and the hosts and this wonderful online radio community.

Here are some of the great highlights from this week. All of these segments are available on demand, so don’t be afraid to check them out.

  • By far my favorite segment of this week was with Harry Shearer on Friday when he visited with Eric and Shaun on BTR Today. Clearly our guys have a knack for this sort of thing and Harry was a dream guest. Do check it out.
  • Grammy award-winning artist Coolio visited with Spike Spillberg this week.
  • Reality television was well represented on BlogTalkRadio this week. On Thursday, Kimberly Alexander from Real World Hollywood visited Hollywood Hits. Plus Reality Shack radio dissected the cast of Big Brother 10 and Flavor of Love‘s The Prototype visited with Doctor Mo.
  • Boston Red Sox Legend Fred Lynn visited with the Fantasy Baseball Gurus.
  • Justin Guarini had his second installment of the Justin Guarini Show.

Thanks for listening. We hope you’ll look through our archives to find the programs of interest to you. Check out the Daily Mix Monday nights at 11:00 p.m. EST for the best soundbytes of the week!

What’s Going On – July 9, 2008

Yesterday during a Skype chat, BlogTalkRadio CEO Alan Levy asked me what I think of BTR’s content. When I told him it was impressive, I wasn’t just pandering to my boss. You see, I first learned about BTR last November at BlogWorld Expo. I tuned in now and then to hear a favorite blogger’s occasional program, but that was it.

In the short time between BWE and my being hired as Community Manager, the network has grown by leaps and bounds. Impressive doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about the content here. Whether you’re into sports, politics, books, blogging, food or pets, there’s something for you. Believe me when I tell you all bases are covered. And if they’re not, why not start a segment of your own?

Here are some of today’s higlights:

Today on Wiltshire & Washington, guests Fred Graver of RemixAmerica.org and Huffington Post blogger and MSNBC commentator James Boyce join to discuss the Netroots Nation conference and its impact on the upcoming political conventions. Anyone not able to listen in to the live 10:30 am ET broadcast can catch it immediately after on demand.

Tonight on Talk Entertainment, Big Brother 10’s Amanda Hansen is in the house to dish about her castmates. 10:00 p.m. EST.

Boston Red Sox Legend Fred Lynn will join The Fantasy Baseball Gurus to talk about the MLB season so far, and what to expect for the rest of the season. Tonight at 9:00 EST.

Soap fans won’t want to miss Mark Lawson, One Life to Live‘s Brody, on Stardish Radio this evening at 9:00 p.m. EST.
