Chris Bergoch On Vicki Abelson's The Road Taken

2/15/2018
More
HIStory making screenwriter and filmmaker, Chris Bergoch, was an entertaining, inspiring, informative, funny, Valentine. I was a bit (a bit? If I didn’t know I was sober I’d swear there was meth involved) off the rails––I’m blaming Day 3 of a cleanse. Ignore me and focus on this wunderkind, who starting making movies at age 9, with his mother behind the camera. There was never a Plan B. From NYU’s Film School to Greg The Bunny on Fox, starring Eugene Levy, Seth Green, and Sarah Silverman, to...

One of the most heartfelt, grateful, stupendous stories of a life well-lived... actor Michael Nouri, from untrained amateur to starring on Broadway with Julie Harris and being schooled by a pro in his early 20s, turning down Sam Peckinpaw to do this little film called Flashdance, which changed the world... break dancing and fashion for two... starring on Broadway again with Julie Andrews and then, Liza Minelli, handpicked by Blake Edwards, with a song crafted just for him by Henry (call me...

Lydia, oh Lydia! Too Close For Comfort’s Lydia Cornell, gorgeous, inside and out, took us through her life, from Texas to Scarsdale to Colorado to Hollywood. A little girl with passion and vision who found a way to live her dream. We talked drugs and booze to sobriety, and recovery; obsession with appearance to striving to focus on what’s truly important. From business to music, to television, trying to please, sexual abuse of power, verbal abuse to be beautiful, the power of other’s...

Jim Beaver On Vicki Abelson's The Road Taken (online - Audio - Converter.com)

1/18/2018
More
Amazing conversation with the always entertaining Jim Beaver, who talked current events, growing up in Texas unfocused, doing a load of theatre, and then the life changer... there were two... and a lot of stories. Jim speaks of his heroes, and why they are, and, the one who fell from grace for lack of grace. What it took to get "there," what he thinks it takes... precious takeaways applicable to pretty much everything ... read, study, never be the reason something goes south, never hold up...

Steve Postell is man of music. So, we started with some. His. Other than a couple of weeks driving for a car service at 19, before starting his 2-year stint playing on Broadway (Evita with Patti LuPone & Mandy Patinkin) Steve has earned his living doing what he loves. Sparked by Dylan. Bob. Who, unbeknownst to him, shaped the life of his 16 yr old co-art-class student. Stories... does Steve have stories... he's played with seemingly everyone. Within minutes of meeting Steve, fresh out of...

Eliza & Eric Roberts On Vicki Abelson's The Road Taken

12/28/2017

I can’t even process how fantastical and forthcoming Eric Roberts is, how open and honest Eliza is, how much love, reverence, affection, and respect they share... how they live and work in unison within that love and respect. We got stories! Holy shit! The truths behind The Pope of Greenwich Village, “juicy,” Eric’s word ~ trudat. Bob Fosse, Mickey Rourke, The Killers, sister Julia, daughter Emma, Dr. Drew, Dr. Who... just tune in... I promise, worthy. Eric speaks to why it works, how it...

Ed Asner On Vicki Abelson's The Road Taken

11/30/2017
More
It's beginning to feel a lot like X-Mas. Is there anything more fun than interviewing Ed Asner in his house, surrounded by his look-a-like dog, cat, bird, daughter, granddaughter, Scott, whilst he eats pizza, drinks Ice, takes a pee break, and coughs his ass off, while singing Old Man River, schools us on history, tenacity, repeatedly curses me out, orders Louise around, and charms the pants off of us. Not quite, Matt Lauer. And, I got to sit on Santa’s lap. Sweetest grouch ever... he wore...

Anthony Fedorov On The Road Taken (online - Audio - Converter.com)

11/16/2017
More
We went Live with American Idol finalist, Anthony Fedorov, maybe the nicest, most evolved human I’ve had the pleasure to get to know. Anthony sees only the good, the best, in everything, and everyone. Not a negative word, not a one. Precious take-away––every suggestion is an opportunity for growth, constructive criticism (think Simon) helps construct a better person, a better artist. Humble, self-aware, comfortable in his skin, and, self-confident, in a mature, realistic, measured, true...
