Mr. Media Is Hitting His Stride, Writes Maddux Business Report

Hardly a week goes by when BlogTalkRadio’s own Bob Andelman isn’t recognized for his terrific on-air work.

This week, the Mr. Media host has his name splashed in the pages of the Maddux Business Report, a (what else?) business magazine in his home state of Florida.

“Andelman’s interview subjects are a diverse bunch, from actors Billy Bob Thornton and Kirk Douglas to the editor of Smithsonian magazine,” writes the pub.

Most Memorable ‘Mix’ Yet!

If we do say so ourselves (and we do), this week’s edition of The Daily Mix is bound to remain pressed in your book of memories for decades to come.

After all, how often – in the same show – do you find:

—A 91-year-old Kirk Douglas dishing about his desire to meet Angelina Jolie?

     Angelina Jolie has done a lot to solve the world's problems, says Kirk Douglas.

. Angelina Jolie has done a lot to solve the problems of the world, cinematic legend Kirk Douglas tells BlogTalkRadio.

—A roomful of Canadian rockers addicted to singing Gummi Bears?

—A Catholic bishop who’s also a bona fide exorcist?

—A teenage BlogTalkRadio pod jock who’s got a doozy of an existential dilemma?

—A pair of middle-aged Texas sisters who think a fabulous name for a new TV show would be T— and Nightmares?

—A Danish mom who broadcasts the sound of her son’s thumping heart – followed by the boy revealing that his favorite dish is “spaghetti und meat”?

Not very often is right.

Kirk Douglas to Uncle Sam: Let’s Say We’re Sorry for Slavery!

Though he turns 92 in December, Kirk Douglas isn’t going quietly into the night – and pity the fool who says he is.

Having penned nine books – the most recent of which, Let’s Face It: 90 Years of Living, Loving and Learning, comes out today in paperback – the screen legend is embarking on a campaign that he feels will burnish America’s image at home and abroad.

"It's a small thing, but it's a very important thing," Kirk tells us of America's mea culpa.

“I think we should make a formal apology for the egregious actions toward African Americans before the Civil War and after the Civil War,” the Spartacus star tells Mr. Media host Bob Andelman in an interview airing today at 3 p.m. ET.

“If a strong country like ours shows humility by apologizing for certain acts, I think it will have a good impact,” continues Kirk. “We’re not so popular now around the world.”

Kirk also tells Bob why he wants to journey to Egypt and why he wants to meet Angelina Jolie.
