Last week we featured new music from Darlene Love, one of the all-time great rock-and-roll singers.  THIS WEEK we feature Love herself!  The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee talks about her fantastic new album, “Introducing Darlene Love”, and what it was like working with album producer Steve Van Zandt from The ‘E’ Street Band.  She also talks about her whole career, from her time working with Phil Spector, to her role in the “Lethal Weapon” movies, to her friendships with David Letterman and Paul Shaffer.  It is a wonderful and upbeat chat with a truly special lady!

PLUS:  Gary borrows Tony’s car; Tony has to apologize to some listeners; and “Mike Stone’s Antiquated Expressions”! This episode rocks!

For the first time ever on the show, Tony and Gary present a live, in-studio musical performance!  (Not including Tony's best efforts on the harmonica.)  Guitar virtuoso Ben Stein stops by to play a few licks, and make his Dad proud.  (That's right....Ben is Gary's 20-year-old son!  And boy does he play good!)
Also:  A NEW edition of the "Real or Fake Movie Game"; Gary takes Ben for an uplifting visit to the National Holocaust Museum; the date for the "Two Man March" is announced; and Tony "bumps into" Al Roker!
This episode will be music to your ears!

No, not the MUSICIAN “Dr. John” (Mac Rebennack).  A different  “Dr. John”.  We’ll let Gary tell you who it is.  All we’ll say here is that GARY HAS COMPLETELY SOLD US OUT FOR HIS OWN PURPOSES!

Also:  The amazing DRX9000 (pictured here); bad product names; bad Beatles songs (!); and, the guys select music upcoming “Two Man March”.  And just a heads up: this episode is rated “R”, for language!
