Episode 8:  Mickey Rapkin - November 20, 2012

Episode 8 is the first WDEK episode to be taped post Super Storm (was not classified as a hurricane when it hit us) Sandy and the 2012 Presidential Election.  Shonali has power, heat but still no internet.  Christian has nothing to complain about but for the noise of sirens the day the storm hit, yeah, seriously.  Shonali was a poll watcher in Philly.  Christian causes a commotion on a flight on election day.   Shonali saw Madonna live for the very first time.  Special guest Mickey Rapkin  joins us in the WDEK studio (Shonali's dining room).  Mickey has seen Madonna live before only tickets were much more inexpensive then.  Everyone loves Elmo, don't they?  Christian has a new nickname for Elmo.  Author Mickey Rapkin tells us about his days as an acapella singing group member. The movie Pitch Perfect (currently in theaters - written by the fantastic Kay Cannon and starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin, Adam Devine) is based on Mickey's book Pitch Perfect.  How do you write a book?  Mickey has written two.  His latest is titled Theater Geek.  Pitch Perfect's Riff Off made Shonali's Sandy blues disappear.   What are your Thanksgiving rituals?  Saying thanks?  Movies?  Commemorating the first Thanksgiving? Eating in front of the television?  Christian thinks Daniel Day Lewis is Lincoln.  Shonali loves that Anthony Hopkins is opinionated.  Mickey saw Life of Pi.  More Indians in Hollywood.  Mickey interviewed Neil Young TWICE! Mickey is a GQ Docker's Man of Style and Christian has cool new glasses, so there's that.  Happy Holidays from the WDEK crew.  We are thankful for you, our listeners.  The Vince Gauraldi Trio takes us out with Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

Episode 7:  Ghost Stories w Magnum PI and Bagelgher - October 28, 2012

We apologize for being out of touch last month, but we promise that this episode of WDEK will prove to have been worth your wait. Episode 7 is a super special edition of WDEK. We taped the show outside in front of a live audience on the eve of Hurricane Sandy, a few days before Halloween on the Brooklyn deck of our good friend Stephen Vesecky. Stephen shared a Johann Wolfgang von Goethe scary story while ominous sounds of the city howl behind him, literally.  Our special guests were the sexy Magnum PI and the one and only Bagelgher.   Listening to their tales of fright and horror will make you shake and shiver.  Christian finished up his run of shows for the play, Blacken the Bubble.  Shonali's gym teacher needs advice about flights to Siberia.  Have you heard Hot Cheetos and Takis?  Shonali would like to touch Magnum's stache.  Christian doesn't like being called a little girl.  The Bagelgher doesn't like rap videos.   Must see visuals are attached: Bagelgher's Bagelmatic and Bagel Gun.  We were quite out of control and feel lucky to have enjoyed such a wonderful afternoon on what would be the eve of a devastating hurricane that ripped apart our city.  For those of you that are still affected by Hurricane Sandy, our thoughts are with you and we hope that those of you that can help, contribute time and/or money to the relief efforts going on throughout our city.  Special thanks goes to Tory Harris, Matt Carlin, Justin Joseph Hall, Ricardo Rosario and our live audience.  Ya'll are the best!
