The Tony Perkins Show

This week the guys welcome back to the show legendary rock and roll disc jockey CERPHE Colwell, on the occasion of the publication of his new book, Cerphe's Up. Cerphe shares WONDERFUL stories about times he spent with such rock icons as Bruce Springsteen, George Harrison, Frank Zappa, and Steve Van Zandt, and he reminisces about the glory days of WHFS-FM, one of the most eclectic and greatest radio stations EVER. This is a truly special conversation, AND it features some really great music!

Plus: MORE on Gary's new puppy; new music from Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie; and, just maybe....Rob's "Great Gatsby" story! We are really proud of this one, and hope you enjoy it, too!

Tony's well again and the guys immediately get to work getting caught up on the latest current events, including...Gary has a new puppy! And it's pooping all over his house! Gary's not thrilled, and Tony's not impressed with his selection of breed.

Plus: A call to Gary's dry cleaner (who does not treat Gary like a valued customer!); "Are THESE the best Beatles songs EVER?"; and "Last Week in the News". Dare we say, this one's fun, provocative, and CHOCK FULL!

Due to Tony being laid low by an illness, this week we present an encore presentation of one of our FAVORITE episodes, featuring radio and TV legend DONNIE SIMPSON! Donnie, Tony and Gary have an instant rapport, and it was a warm, funny, and comfortable conversation. (This was the first time since 1992 that Donnie and Tony had reunited for an extended time on-air!)

Enjoy!  (And don't forget, now you can hear Donnie on the radio again, weekday afternoons on MAJIC 102.3 in Washington, D.C.)

At the suggestion of show Twitter follower @cozmodog, Tony and Gary nominate some movies, TV shows, and music acts that they think are either over-rated or under-rated. Among the movies on the "over-rated" list? "Star Wars" and "Titanic"!!! Let the arguments begin! (And yes, we want YOU to weigh in!)

PLUS: Gary and Tony call to order tickets for a live presentation of "The Sound of Music", and the phone call is hilarious! Also, new music from Brad Paisley (!), and much more! The hills are alive....with the sound of laughter!
