“I’m Teed Off” Radio Show

Please tune in tomorrow (Saturday, August 21st) for the debut of the “I’m Teed Off” golf show on 620 WDAE-AM. I’ll be joining my buddy Joey McGrane each Saturday morning between 8 and 9am. We are very grateful to our friend Mark Prucnell and “Little Caesars” for stepping up to the plate as our title sponsor. Even if you’re not into golf, we promise more than a few laughs and a chance to win some great prizes.

Personal Evolution

I was in a play called “Later Life” recently and, in the final scene, my character said these words: “People don’t change Sally!  We are who we are only more so.”  Well, I take issue with that and here’s why.  My mother kept every report card I ever had from first grade through my senior year in high school.  I happened to be going through some files a couple of days ago and ran across all those hideously embarrassing report cards.  If you had judged me by my academic performance during those  formative years, you would have projected well, let’s just say, a less than stellar career in just about any profession.  Truthfully, I’m still amazed I made it into college.  Once I got there,  however, I was able to pursue my passion which was broadcasting.  It launched me into a career that’s lasted four decades.  In fact, it gave me the confidence to give acting a try.  “Later Life” is really the first theatre work I’ve ever done proving that we can change, even in later life. By the way, all those old report cards are now in the trash!

America’s Best Loved Personal Brand, Betty White

Betty White may the biggest and best loved brand in America right now.  The 88-year old’s  hosting of “Saturday Night Live” was nothing less than brilliant. 

What I have always loved about Betty White is that she can be both naughty and nice at the same time.  Going back to her days on the “Mary Tyler Moore Show” when she played Sue Ann Nivens, she’s always been to display an incredibly sweet demeanor combined with liberal doses of sexual innuendo.  When Betty first appeared on television in the early 50’s,  married couples couldn’t even be depicted as sharing the same bed and the censors would have  had a fit with any humor  considered risqué.  SNL really changed the television landscape back in 1975 and it hasn’t really looked back ever since.  The beautiful  thing about Betty White is that she’s not looking back either.  She’s going full steam ahead!
