‘Secret Life’ Star Megan Park’s On-set Secret: Coloring Books!

Megan Park may have gotten busy with her beau on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but while waiting for the director to shout “Action!” she’s anything but hot to trot.

Interviewed on WZAP Radio, Megan, who plays Grace Bowman on the hit ABC Family series, reveals the secret of keeping busy with her castmates, including Molly Ringwald, Shailene Woodley, India Eisley, Mark Derwin and Ken Baumann.

CAPTION: "That's pretty cool, right?" Megan (above) tells us of her Crayola parties.

It’s a Devil-May-Care Edition of ‘The Mix’

In a Daily Mix first, we’re highlighting celebrities who throw caution to the wind in the interest of speaking up for what they believe in, be it social issues, artistic choices or just the plain old (if slightly cruel) need for attention.

Cases in point:

-Legendary fiddler Charles Daniels trashes a growing segment of our population. “There are people out there fathering one illegitimate child after the other,” says The Devil Went Down to Georgia singer. “Quit givin’ money to people that absolutely refuse to work.”

CAPTION: "Put that SOB to work. Make him support those children," Charlie (above) tells us of America's deadbeat dads.

"Put that SOB to work. Make him support those children," Charlie (above) tells us of America's deadbeat dads.

-Rather than having to “go a whole season with walking around with towels in front of me,” The Secret Life of the American Teenager star Molly Ringwald recounts how she worked with the show’s producers to weave her real-life pregnancy into the plotline.

-Jaleel White knocks his show-biz contemporaries for not supporting aging entertainers like the late Ed McMahon, telling us, “We have this new culture that says if you’re not the youngest, hottest, we don’t care about you.”

-Screen idol Bill Pullman explains why, regardless of its uncommercial nature, he has selected as his current acting project a revival of David Mamet‘s 1992 play, Oleanna.

-Purely in the interest of generating a great sound bite, comedian Dave Coulier punks one of his Full House stars live on the air.

-Despite having the golden opportunity of starring in the Twilight series, Michael Welch tells us he’d never want to be a vampire – because they are “miserable, miserable people.”

Plus, a special let-it-all-out farewell to the great Michael Jackson.

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

Dr. Blogstein’s Radio Happy Hour

My favorite types of blog posts are the ones where I get to profile the hosts and let you see the person behind the microphone. Today we’re pleased to give you a Q&A with Dr. Blogstein whose Radio Happy Hour is one of BlogTalkRadio‘s more popular segments.

Dr. B was kind enough to tell us a little about himself, his show and offer some tips to the other hosts. I won’t go on and on, but I will say this: Those who have never listened in to the Radio Happy Hour can now see why Dr. Blogstein is so entertaining and why folks leave his show with a good, upbeat feeling.

Tell us about your Radio Happy Hour

The World Wide Web is full of people who have no friends.  For one hour a week, we will be your best friends.  We’ll make you laugh, introduce you to cool people, play games, and every once in a while we’ll engage you in thought-provoking conversation.

That’s not to say that people with friends shouldn’t listen.  In fact, I guarantee we’ll leave you with something to talk to your buddies about.

How long have you hosted your radio show?

The Radio Happy Hour has been on every week since February 13, 2007.

What made you decide to do a radio show – and why did you choose BlogTalkRadio over more traditional forms of podcasting?

In all seriousness, I’ve been doing this show for my entire life. It’s just that now, other people can hear it. It’s really quite a relief to finally have an outlet for my obnoxious one-liners and immature jokes.

I chose BlogTalkRadio over any and every other vehicle because that Alan Levy is just so damn cute.


To what do you attribute your show’s success?

Dangreous Lee and Vinny Bond.  Without Dangerous Lee by my side and Vinny Bond patrolling the live, interactive chatroom, there would be no Radio Happy Hour.  This show is the perfect example of a scenario in which the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. On our own, we’re three dopey knuckleheads, but put us together and we’re Radio Magic.


How do you come by your guests?

Now its 50-50.  I reach out to half of my guests and the rest of the time they reach out to us.  I got the “guest ball” rolling initially by cashing in on all the favors people owed me!

Who are some of your favorite hosts and what are some of your favorite BTR shows?

There are other shows?  No kidding!

Actually, there really are some excellent radio programs on BTR. 

Movie Geeks United is a high-quality, high-end broadcast that’s always very professionally produced.  Annie and Burl are the Regis and Kelly of BlogTalkRadio and Bob “Mr. Media” Andelman is BTR’s Charlie Rose.

I’m always discovering other gems on BTR, so it pays to dig around.

Any tips you’d like to offer for promoting segments and bringing in the listeners?

The more people that you include on your show, the more people you’ll have to bring listeners to your show.   If you give roles on your show to your buddy Joe, Aunt Silvia and Jerry the Mailman then Joe, Silvia and Jerry will all have their friends and family tune in. And if those people like what they hear, they’ll tell their friends and family. But it’s not enough to get an audience; the key is to keep an audience. You have to be interesting and entertaining.

What advice do you have to offer someone who might be considering a radio show but might be a little shy?

A couple drinks a half hour before you go on air should loosen you up.

What’s can we expect in the future from Dr. Blogstein and his Radio Happy Hour?

You can continue to expect interesting guests, compelling conversation and an incredibly handsome host on the live web cam.  And also, since its live and on the internet you can expect that at any moment, you’ll hear something you’d never heard before.

Catch Dr. Blogstein’s Radio Happy Hour tonight at 9:00 EST. His guests are Francia Raisa from “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” and Lorna Scott who is starring in the new film “Wanted.”
