Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of men and women whose biggest challenge in the kitchen is when the recipe calls for setting the microwave oven on ?medium? instead of ?high?? in the new new media capitol of the world?

I think it started with ?Two Hot Tamales? on the Food Network many years ago, and blossomed into the early days of ?Emeril Live.? She dragged us into "Hell?s Kitchen" and "Top Chef" ? hello, Padma Lakshmi! She found the original ?Kitchen Nightmares ? on the BBC and we discovered a much more entertaining Gordon Ramsay than found in the American incarnation. More recently, Mimi has become a fan of "Chopped," a different kind of competition. This one is generally self-contained to a single episode, with four chefs facing off until one is left standing.

Image via WikipediaBOB ANDELMAN (email) Mr. Media ® Radio When Sir George Shearing, the composer of ?Lullabye of Birdland,? died on Valentine?s Day, 2011, we lost one of the great pianists ? and gentlemen ? of jazz. Born in London, in 1947 he came to the United States where he was known far and wide for his work with singers Frank Sinatra, Nancy Wilson, Peggy Lee and Nat King Cole, as well as his many collaborations with Mel Torme. Later in his career, he was recognized for his concert appearances with Marian McPartland and Billy Taylor, which introduced him to entirely new audiences.  --------------Listen to my 1983 GEORGE SHEARING interview!-------------- I had the great honor of interviewing Sir George for the St. Petersburg Times way back on October 14, 1983. I knew he was a great pianist because I listened to his albums; I learned he was a great gentleman when he treated me with kid gloves as I awkwardly and ignorantly asked him questions for more than 30 minutes.

By BOB ANDELMAN (email) Mr. Media Radio America Olivo is full of surprises. The first time she was on the show, ostensibly to promote a new movie called Circle, she did the interview from the basement of the Foxwoods Theatre on Broadway. Upstairs, rehearsals were underway for a new musical directed by Julie Taymor and featuring music by Bono and The Edge. You may have heard of it: ?Spider -Man : Turn Off the Dark.? She couldn?t say anything much about it at the time; I learned much later that she is the understudy for one of the leads as the villainess ?Arachne? -- and several other major and minor characters.  --------------Listen to my AMERICA OLIVO and CHRISTIAN CAMPBELL interview!-------------- After the interview ended, America said I might enjoy talking to her husband, Christian Campbell.

Meaghan Rath, 'Being Human ' By BOB ANDELMAN (email) Mr. Media Radio SyFy has been on a roll these last few years when it comes to original series. Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Haven are all big hits and much enjoyed in my own household. So it was only a matter of time before the network unleashed a new concept: ?Being Human.?  --------------Listen to my MEAGHAN RATH interview!-------------- In this case, the show about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost sharing living quarters sounds silly on paper but it comes to us with an established history; it?s actually adapted from a British series of the same name. Starring in ?Being Human? are Sam Witwer as the vampire. Aidan, and Sam Huntington as the werewolf, Josh. But the story doesn?t really kick into high gear ? and show its real humanity, if you will, until we meet lovely Meaghan Rath as the ghost, Sally, who died in the very apartment she now shares with Aidan and Josh.

That?s how I got turned on to William Kent Krueger?s new book, Vermilion Drift. A friend knew I would love a good mystery and said, ?Read this.?  --------------Listen to my WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER interview!-------------- I won?t lie?it took me a little while to cotton to the gentle pacing and subtleties of Krueger?s book. There is little Wham! Bam! action, although there is some menacing behavior. So I read it a little at a time until I was halfway through. All at once I just sort of got it, if you know what I mean, and I couldn?t put it down until I got to the end. (Okay, I did pause long enough to invite the author to be a guest on Mr. Media®.) When I was done, I learned this is actually the 10th in a series of mysteries featuring Krueger?s quiet, thoughtful hero, Cork O?Connor.

Original Batman artist Jerry Robinson tells his life's story in four-color
2011-02-05 23:33:00
Image via WikipediaBy BOB ANDELMAN (email) Mr. Media Radio For many years, Jerry Robinson was one of the forgotten men in comics. Little known within the industry for all the years he toiled in obscurity, drawing and creating Batman comic books under the byline of the character?s creator, Bob Kane, Robinson emerged from the shadows to become a celebrated and recognized talent in his own right. He is perhaps best known as the actual creator of the greatest supervillain ever, The Joker, and Batman?s cheery sidekick, Robin the Boy Wonder.  --------------Listen to my JERRY ROBINSON interview!-------------- And unlike many men who spent their entire careers doing nothing but comics, Robinson?s work branched out over time to fine illustration. He did commercial work on Broadway, for example, as well as contributing to books and magazines. One of the surprising things we learn about Robinson is his compassion for his fellow artists around the world, many of whom struggle against m...

Image via WikipediaBy BOB ANDELMAN (email) Mr. Media Radio If it?s a choice between watching drama or comedy, I always pick comedy. Why choose to get all weepy and sad when the other option is to fall off your chair laughing?  --------------Listen to my SAUL AUSTERLITZ interview!-------------- I think the die was cast for me back in 1978, when Steve Goldin and I saw Animal House the night it opened at a theater in Princeton, NJ. I had seen comedies before, of course, but none that had ever worn me out. We laughed so hard at the antics of the Delta House gang that we went back again the next night. And quite a few more times after that. Saul Austerlitz would probably make the same choice, I?m guessing. He?s the author of a new book, Another Fine Mess: A History of American Film Comedy. It takes the genre from Charlie Chaplin ?whose work I myself studied at the University of Florida many years ago ? to Judd Apatow, whose work I now study from the comfortable of my fami...

Can you handle 'The Truth'? Mr. Media's not sure he can (Interview)

Eric Cardillo, 'The Truth ' By BOB ANDELMAN (email) Mr. Media Radio There are essentially nine speaking parts in Ryan Barton-Grimley?s new indie film, The Truth. And two of those parts are in one scene--a couple of actors playing cops who are virtually superfluous to the story--so let?s say seven. Ryan Barton-Grimley, 'The Truth' This is the kind of movie I think Hollywood could learn from in this age of tight budgets and stories that wind out of control. Barton-Grimley tells a taut, suspenseful tale that really leaves the viewer in fear of what revelation?or truth?is coming next. And even when we know, we still don?t know.  --------------Listen to my RYAN BARTON-GRIMLEY interview!-------------- I heard about The Truth, which stars John Heard, Daniel Baldwin, Erin Cardillo and Brendan Sexton III, because illegal copies of it are flooding the Internet. It?s obviously been the subject of a lot of buzz and curiosity. Cool, huh? Ryan Barton-Grimley Website  RYAN...

Must-See-TV Thursdays, meet must-see Kyle Bornheimer on NBC's 'Perfect Coup

Kyle Bornheimer, image by Getty Images via @daylifeBy BOB ANDELMAN (email) Mr. Media Radio I am a Kyle Bornheimer fan. This guy made me laugh so much and so hard as Sam Briggs in one short season of 2008?s ?Worst Week? that I will watch him in anything. He?s equally adept at subtle spoken comedy as big physical gags.  --------------Listen to my KYLE BORNHEIMER interview!-------------- The cast of NBC's "Perfect Coup les" includes Kyle Bornheimer and Olivia Munn My sense is that I?m not the only one who sees him this way; someone in Hollywood knows he?s got that indefinable ?it? characteristic and charisma. Even though ?Worst Week? didn?t endure, Bornheimer?s never been far from view: episodes of ?Chuck? and ?Royal Pains? have followed, as have roles in movies such as She?s Out of My League and You Again. He even did a short-lived ABC series co-starring with Alyssa Milano called ?Romantically Challenged.? And I?ll be honest ? that one came and went so fast even Mr. M...
