Steve Postell Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

It's been a long ride with singer/songwriter/producer, Steve Postell. We go back to Bleecker Street in the heady daze of the New York club scene. I was booking the Rock 'N Roll Café and Steve was fresh outta Pure Prairie League. I was RockStar struck. I booked him that day and have continued to for the past 30 + years wherever I went and whatever I did. When I had my book launch at The Federal it was Steve I went to. He put together the most kick-ass jam band, as he always does. Steve has...


Donna Pescow Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

SCORE! Pure joy! #DonnaPescow is, even more of a dream than I'd hoped. The woman is hysterical! #SaturdayNightFever #Angie #EvenStevens #OutOfThisWorld #GreatStories #Travolta #FUN #GameChangersWithVickiAbelson Replay here: It's such a joy when those I've adore and admire exceed expectations. Ka-ching! Donna Pescow is, even more, a dream than I'd hoped. The woman is hysterical! I loved the non-stop laughs, coupled with great showbiz stories, and thoughtful reflection...


Robert Wuhl Live Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

Fantastically fabulous time with two-time Emmy Award Winner (for those amazing Billy Crystal Academy Award shows which he talks about), Robert Wuhl, actor, writer, producer, director, perhaps best known as the creator and star of HBO's long-running series, Arli$$, talked about the creative freedom the show afforded him to delve into topics which intrigued him, way before their time, why he cast Sandra Oh, how he came to sing Volare as Newbomb Turkin The Hollywood Knights, starting out in...


Leland Sklar Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson,

Unmasked! Post-apocalyptic pandemic blues in Eb may have started and ended the show (with Tristan Cappel), but it was joy, joy, joy, with bass boy, Leland Sklar, my first face-to-face guest since a year ago February. What a great segue back to a semblance of normalcy. It felt so right, so dyn-o-mite. Sorry. We jumped into the book, Everybody Loves Me, an idea without a plan a mere 15 months ago, now seen pretty much 'round the world, in spite of the shutdowns. My copy now adorns my coffee...


Ricky Byrd Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

I like the comedy with my Rock 'n Roll. Hall of Fame'r Ricky Byrd, delivers brilliantly on both counts. Great stories of his heroes in both worlds. Watching them as a kid on Ed Sullivan, to sharing jokes and cokes at The Pines Hotel coffee shop with Freddie Roman, Dick Capri, and Mal Z Lawrence, to sharing a stage with Stevie Wonder, Joe Walsh, Billie Joe Armstrong, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr, all at the same time. Full circle. I met Ricky Byrd back in the daze… when we were both in a...


Candy Clark Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

Candy Clark, part deux, looking fab as always, adding some much appreciated Hollywood glamour for the pandemic weary. We got Candy's take on Sunday's Academy Awards, and her three trips down the red carpet, her first an unknown in the nosebleeds with binoculars, then with her beau, Jeff Bridges (see what I did there), when he was nominated for The Last Picture Show, and then he with her when she was nominated for American Graffiti. We got the naked skinny on Bowie, as The Man Who Fell to...


Ritch Shydner On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

Regardless of the innumerable technical challenges, this was one of my favorite shows in 4 yrs. Comedian, @RitchShydner is affable, warm, hysterically funny, evolved, intelligent & downright entertaining as fuck. #GameChangersWithVickiAbelson Replay: Grateful! Regardless of the innumerable technical challenges with the new Zoom interface, presenting to Only Me on the Facebook, thrice, despite being posted Public, the absence of notifications, the ridiculous beginning...


Kenny Aronoff Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

Forgetaboutit! I thought I was going to be sitting down with one of the most prolific drummers to ever pick up sticks... yeah, there's that, there's also wisdom out the wazoo. I'm talking mind, body. spirit, health. Kenny Aronoff shared strategies for living, working, solutions, tools, suggestions. Wow. This here is packed with passionate guidance. We did get to his career. The players, the stories! Wow, x 2. The kicker, he's easy, entertaining, and fun! I want Kenny to be my life coach....


Mike Rowe On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

comedian, Mike Rowe on the show. We have two degrees all over the place and yet our lives had barely intersected. I wanted to know everything about this funny, successful man who's worked steadily and passionately doing what he loves throughout his life to the present. Mike's got two shows currently running on Netflix, The Trailer Park Boys, where he was nominated for two Gemini Awards, and Paradise PD, which is in its 3rd season. Futurama's available on Hulu. How many writers/producers have...

Jeff Pevar On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

It's been a long time coming, and it'll be a long time not gone. Sitting down (and standing up) with long-time friend, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, arranger, vocalist, and NY Blues Hall Of Famer, Jeff Pevar, was worth waiting for. Amazing stories spanning the whole of his illustrious career. Paul McCartney Beatles inspired, with a sweet story that goes full circle, from Michael Ruff who launched him with Rickie Lee Jones, Ray Charles, James Taylor, Jackson Browne,...


Will Lee Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

A special day🍀, with a special person 🕶, in a special place 🇫🇷, warranted a special time 🕜. Funny, fab, and the furthest thing from faux, Grammy-winning bassist, Will Lee, took us through his stellar, illustrious and industrious, career… growing up in Texas with musical parents, transformed forever upon seeing The Beatles on Ed Sullivan, who changed, and in part, made, and make his life. From drummer at 12 , giggin’ for $6, trumpet, french horn to bass, landing his first major gig with...


Jim Beaver Live On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

Sitting down with actor, writer, director, historian, Marine, sweetheart, great friend, Jim Beaver, is always a treat, today perhaps even more so... reunited with a treasured, entertaining friend, what better way to spend a pandemic evening? We started there, how Jim, Sara, and Maddie have been managing this past year... more COVID careful than crazy, but certainly still, Sympatico. We got into life... and work... from education and early career goals, complete with some hysterical...


Eddie Pepitone On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

What better way to celebrate vaccine efficacy than with old friend, hysterical, thoughtful whip-smart, actor/comedian, Eddie Pepitone. I spent the afternoon watching his latest comedy special, For the Masses, available on Amazon Prime, which the New York Times called the funniest stand-up special of 2020––no argument here. When was the last time I continuously laughed out loudly during this damn pandemic? Eddie and I went there––from current non-shopping practices, a life-threatening...

Peter Onorati On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

Peter Onorati, how I adore thee... let me count the ways... amazing actor, great storyteller, sweetest of humans... loved every moment in his good company. It was a challenging race to show time post last-minute tech issues - all over the place - but once we went Live there was no way not to sit back and enjoy this wonderful conversation from Peter’s wild fabulous family from Naples to New Jersey. Not only the stories but Peter enacting them out for us. His grandfather (and DeNiro) my...


Tom Bergeron On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

So fun. So easy. Loved it. Love him. Fantastical post-impeachment trial much-needed joy with Emmy Winner, Tom Bergeron. How I adore this man. The long-time host of Dancing With The Stars told us what happened. I haven't watched since, you? The first man to grace Women Who Write in its inaugural year, where he read aloud from his just stopping, I'm Hosting as Fast I Can, for the first time, we had another cherry- breaking––Tom read from Drive Time, his new book in progress. As with everything...


Candy Clark On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

I’ve been a candy fan all my life, I’ve been a Candy Clark fan almost as long. Her Academy Award Nominated performance as Debbie Dunham in American Graffiti is unforgettable. We started with a few tech issues. It was worth the little time and frustration for the great stories and fun which followed. We talked vaccines, pandemic protocols, adjusted living, shopping, eating, to making new friends in th midst of it. Candy's got her neighbors, I've got the COVID crazies. We touched on the lunacy...


Gregory Harrison On Game Changers With Vicki Abelson

Sensational storytelling from actor, activist, veteran, sober, surfer, husband, father, grandpa, success story on celluloid and in life, Gregory Harrison. And, the whole gorgeousness thing. We talked his Catalina upbringing, playing baseball and the guitar. A medic during the Vietnam War, stationed in Germany, he set a precedent as the first non-religious conscientious objector. A medic, he set the stage for Trapper John MD, which launched him to stardom. We touched on Logan's Run, Sisters,...
