"HEY WE'RE BACK" Episode 9

In this episode, I introduce a new segment called Housecalls. This time, I am visiting a neighbor — my neighbor. I spend some time trying to help out an old friend — Bob Saget, who has fallen on hard times; and I am sharing a non-sectarian Xmas/Hannukah song i recorded a few years ago with The Bobs.

Housecalls is an opportunity for me to "force feed" my comedy on unsuspecting strangers. I love it...

"HEY WE'RE BACK" Episode 8

The first scene is a reunion I have with an old Hebrew school friend. The guy was a natural athlete and it was great hearing that he still competes. My next stop is with directory assistance. This is a call I made more than twenty years ago but it still feels topical. I did, eventually, make contact with Mr. Potterton. My dad had a sister named Sylvy. She died about ten years ago but with the help of a medium, I was able to make contact and catch up. And finally I talk about the things that keep me awake at night. Not for the squeamish, not for the Amish.

"HEY WE'RE BACK" Episode 7

In Episode Seven I finally get a chance to talk to Bob Dylan about his life before music. It is a story that you will probably be hearing for the first time. But first, we meet a man, recently divorced, trying to return to the dating scene with no real skills. From there, we go to the airport—a place where cell phones and ex-girlfriends often converge.

Then we return to jungles of South America where I try and repair the damage I had done the day before when I visited my old friend, the world renowned naturalist Sandy Briscoe.

Last but certainly not least, is my interview with the great Bob Dylan.

"HEY WE'RE BACK" Episode 6

In Episode 6, I experience a rude intrusion into my otherwise sedate life. It happens while I am holding for some help from my bank. Then we hear freelance journalist Dan Snider speaking with a civil engineer who has been asked to design a tunnel connecting the two cities of Newton and Wellesley in Massachusetts. The towns are less than ten miles apart, and the construction has become extremely controversial. Finally, I try and track down an old friend from Chicago — a guy I knew so well. But if you don't stay in touch with someone, you can lose a piece of who you were.

"HEY WE'RE BACK" Episode 5

Sandy Briscoe was my room mate at Oxford. We were doing post grad work and became bosom buddies. We shared everything and then one day, we lost track...of each other. I missed him recently and decided to pay him a suprize visit in the jungles of Peru. It didn't work out the way i had hoped.

Mark Mc Dermott is the spin doctor's spin doctor. Our very own Dan Snider had a chance to sit down with him and talk about George W. Bush. i think the results will suprise you.

"HEY WE'RE BACK" Episode 2

In week two I take a brief trip into my past in search of an old friend. Then I try and lend a helping hand to the medical industry working with the theory that even more difficult than getting bad medical news is giving bad medical news .

One of my musical heroes is Barry White. We met backstage one night in NYC, we hit it off and he invited me to call…he also gave me permission to record the conversation. He is not who you think he is.

Finally I gave computerized therapy a shot with mixed results. I tried this at the suggestion of family and friends who think I spend too much time alone.

Next week I am planning a reunion with a college friend, Sandy Briscoe, a naturalist who has been studying the mating habits of an endangered insect found only in a remote part of Brazil and finally the much anticipated visit from Bob Dylan.

"HEY WE'RE BACK" Episode 1

For the past year or so I've been creating a weekly radio show called HEY WE'RE BACK. The show has featured a number of famous and not-so-famous guests, ranging from music legends like Bob Dylan and Aretha Lewis, the exterminator from Orkin. What the show does not have is a broadcaster. But, using the magic of the internet you can now listen to HEY WE'RE BACK right here by clicking this link!

In this first episode we take a trip to New York City to visit with a dominatrix who specializes in grammar, and we'll also be spending some time with a variety of other cruel and interesting individuals. This trip will take you as far west as Idaho and as far east as your mind permits. Does that make sense? Not yet, but I'm hoping it will soon...

Next week you will hear more of my life long struggle with directory assistance, a new installment of BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY and a rare and revealing interview with the LATE GREAT BARRY WHITE. We will also take a look at the very difficult task of GIVING BAD MEDICAL NEWS.
