Thomas: The pop icon recalls having laryngitis while recording the Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid soundtrack, which would yield the Oscar-winning megahit Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head. “The 20th Century Fox guy said, ‘Boy this is great,” B.J. tells Milling About host Robin Milling. It sounds like maybe Paul Newman was singing!’”

‘The Joe Show’ Host Joe Crawford: Could He Be the Next Ellen DeGeneres?

More flattering things have been said about our BlogTalkRadio talent, though we can’t recall when.

In the current edition of Niagara This Week, which covers the Canadian region between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, reporter Steven Henschel writes of Joe Crawford:

CAPTION: Separated at mirth? Joe (right) and muse Ellen. "I would love to make a career of it," he tells his hometown paper. "But in the meantime, I do it for the love of it."

Separated at mirth: Joe (right) and Ellen. "I'd love to make a career of it," he tells his hometown paper of broadcasting. "In the meantime, I do it for the love of it."

“Once a month, Crawford, a Port Colborne resident and lifelong entertainer, hosts his hour-long Internet radio variety show The Joe Show (think Ellen on the radio) from his home.”

That’s right—a comparison to Ellen DeGeneres!

Now, only time will tell if Joe goes on to land his own nationally-syndicated TV talk show (to say nothing of hosting the Oscars). And his buzz remains north of the border (or at least it had been, before Continue reading

Brad Garrett on an ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Reunion: ‘That will never happen’

As with every long-running sitcom that has wrapped, there’s always a chance that those involved in creating the magic will be enticed to reunite.

So when Brad Garrett dropped in on Night Views Radio, host Robert Saul was quick to ask about an Everybody Loves Raymond reunion.

CAPTION: "He couldn't have been further from the character he played," Brad (above) tells us of Peter. "He was very educated, very astute when it came to politics and world affairs."

"He couldn't have been further from the character he played," Brad (above) tells us of co-star Peter. "He was very educated, very astute when it came to politics and world affairs."

And without missing a beat, Brad—who played Robert Barone on the CBS series that signed off in 2005— replied:

“No, that will never happen. Ray [Romano] isn’t the type who would ever do that. Like Jerry Seinfeld, Ray knew when to go out.

“To this day, nobody made the money on TV that Ray did, on the last two years of the show… The money he turned down just to do a year 10 was unfathomable.

“But what’s great about Ray is, it’s all about the craft. And he knew we were out of stories and he really wanted to go out on top. We knew there’d never be a reunion. But with the passing of Peter [Boyle], there would never, ever… Out of respect, out of the love we have for Peter— you know, he was such a huge part of that show. And to try Continue reading
