‘The Mix’ Has Got Water Cooler Cred!

Every Tuesday around 10:15 a.m., in offices from Bangor, Maine, to Bend, Oregon, Americans leave their desks and for head for the kitchen to “get a cup of coffee.”

But what they really want is to dish with their workmates about last night’s Daily Mix.

So unless you want to be left out in the cold, be sure to tune into this must-hear show tonight for the answers to such all-important questions as:

“I really, really want that. Please don’t tease me,” BlogTalkRadio’s Annie Gregory tells Frank Vincent (above).

“I really, really want that. Please don’t tease me,” Annie tells Frank.

—Since clinching third place on American Idol last year, what has been Melinda Doolittle‘s most memorable moment. (Hint: In involves her mom and the White House.)

—How The Lady Rerun Show host Portia Berry first learned that the late Fred “Rerun” Berry was her dad.

—Do the diminutive members of the tribute band MiniKiss have groupies (and, if so, how far do those gals go to show their loyalty).

—What Annie & Burl Live! co-host Annie Gregory hopes to do with Sopranos star Frank Vincent (above) when she meets him in the Windy City this week.

—Why, exactly, does Stephen Baldwin believe Barack Obama is a “cultural terrorist.”

—Which superstar diva do gossip queen Liz Smith and The Midlife Gals bash for looking “strung-out and muscular.”

—What The Daily Beast editor Tina Brown is thinking of doing on BlogTalkRadio on a regular basis.

So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!

The ‘Gals’ Get Naked

What could be funnier than two single, eccentric, cocktail-guzzling, 50-something socialite-wannabe sisters from Texas who live with their octogenarian mom but would much rather be headlining in Vegas?

'Midlife' Madness - Sally (left) and Kelly Jackson bare it all for BTR

Two naked single, eccentric, cocktail-guzzling, 50-something socialite-wannabe sisters from Texas!

In case you missed last week’s launch of The Midlife Gals: Necessary Insanity, hosts SalGal (left) and KK (right) Jackson want you to know they forgive you – and that you’re welcome to join them this coming Monday at 7 p.m. ET for a special naked edition of their show.

Better yet, click here to hear – and see – the gals welcome you with open, ah, arms to their comedy of menopausal proportions.

(Viewer discretion is advised.)

Midlife Gals Gone Wild

Take two single, eccentric, cocktail-guzzling, 50-something socialite-wannabe sisters from Texas.

Move them back home with their addled, octogenarian mom.

Toss in a healthy dose of haughty Austin “ladies who lunch” who wouldn’t be caught dead with these “ladies who liquid lunch.”

Sprinkle on a few (very few) pot-bellied good-old-boy suitors.

Add one big-butted, beehive-haired, leopard-print-wearing caregiver who doesn’t give a crap what happens to anyone.

And what have you got?

'Midlife' Cri-Sis: Sally (left) and Kelly Jackson

The Midlife Gals: Necessary Insanity, of course – a comedy of menopausal proportions launching tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

Join Kelly “KK” Jackson (the control-freak one) and Sally “SalGal” Jackson (the in-denial one) as they bring you all the news that’s unfit to print from their tension-filled abode – namely, how not to take the gas pipe while grappling with day-to-day-to-day-to-day realities of parenting an elderly parent. To break up the tension, the gals also review movies they’ve never seen, dish about current events, and visit with an embarrassing array of local whack-jobs.

“We’re The Smothers Brothers with bosoms – and a taste for hard liquor,” said Kelly.

“Shut up,” said Sally.

“Clearly, giving these women their own show was a huge mistake,” said Philip Recchia, BlogTalkRadio’s director of programming.

Nonetheless, mark The Midlife Gals on your calendar.

Because insanity is a terrible thing to waste.
