Gilbert Gottfried

Good morning, radio fans. I hope you have no plans to leave your laptop today, because you’re going to spend a lot of time under your headphones. We’re calling it “The Day of Top Authors” here on BlogTalkRadio. Actually we should call it “The Day of Top Authors and More” because you won’t believe all the big name guests on tap today. Some are live and some are oldies but goodies, all are not to be missed.

Enough with the small talk, let me hit you with some highlights (all times EDT):

  • Comedian Gilbert Gottfried is in the house. Though this is being touted as a “21 and over” show, adults in attendance are sure to be entertained as Gilbert talks with host Olivia Wilder about his career as actor and funny guy today at 6:00 p.m.
  • Social media expert Chris Brogan will be a guest on Innovation Insider to discuss how businesses are using social media to reach new people. Don’t miss it this afternoon at 2:00 p.m.
  • Buzzworthy Radio welcomes Guiding Light’s Alan Spaulding actor Ron Raines at 4:00 p.m.
  • Brad Thor, author of The Last Patriot chats with Andrea Shea King this evening at 9:00.

Don’t forget to re-visit these great segments:

  • Catch an archived version of an interview with actress and author Shirley MacLaine on the Radio Happy Hour.
  • John Havens interviewed Hugh Hefner back in May. You get to hear it again today!
  • Best selling author Jodi Picoult visited WSN Radio last September. Fortunately we’re bringing it to you again today!
  • In June Sir Salman Rushdie visited Saja HQ. Hear it all again on demand.

That should keep you busy for a while! Have a great day and don’t forget to listen while you work!
