Oh, Snaps! Pauly Sees Doug’s Rundgren with a Knight – and Raises Him a Gibson

Call it The Battle of the BlogTalkRadio Celebrity Schmoozers.

Shortly after Doug Ford, host of BlogTalkRadio’s Rundgren Radio, zipped us a pic of himself hanging with rocker Todd Rundgren last week, Fruit Salad host Pauly – of Pauly and Rico fame – followed up with two more celeb snaps.

The first finds Pauly cozying up to Grey’s Anatomy star T.R. Knight recently in L.A.; the second finds him getting even cozier with pop star Debbie Gibson, also in La-La Land.


TR (left) and Pauly: Grey's pride night.


Deb and Pauly: We CAN Be Together.

Any hosts out there want to challenge Pauly’s celeb-schmooze superiority?

If so, email your celeb snap(s) to our community manager, Deborah Ng, at deborahng@blogtalkradio.com

(But be sure it’s an unretouched photo in which you and the celeb are clearly visible. Also be sure to include the location where and date when the photo was taken.)

As host of BlogTalkRadio’s Rundgren Radio – which features interviews with musicians associated with the Bang The Drum All Day singer’s career – Doug of course holds a special place in Todd’s heart.

Just this week, in fact, Todd told The Mountain Times of Boone, N.C., that Doug “does an outstanding job” with his BlogTalkRadio show.

As for Doug’s tête-à-tête with Todd, the two shared (what look like) Swedish meatballs recently at a Greenville, N.C., eatery.

Music Great Larry Tagg on BlogTalkRadio

Tagg Co-founder and co-leader of the popular band BOURGEOIS TAGG, Larry Tagg, joins Rundgren Radio tonight at 8:30pm ET.

In 1987, the band recorded their second album, Yoyo, with esteemed producer Todd Rundgren. When it was released in the autumn of that year, the band had their biggest hit with its first single, “I Don’t Mind At All”(#38 on Billboard), a shimmering, melancholy ballad of resignation whose catchy melody, offbeat rhythm, and dramatic use of strings is reminiscent of classic Beatles songs, such as “Yesterday”.
