Come in Suckers, leave your wallet on the Bar!

Let's get out of these wet clothes and into a dry martini.

Friday September 24th, 7:00pm sharp YpsiGirl is back in CTN's mini hot line studio with her sidekick (husband) jesse sinatra and A3 Radio's Folk It Show host/producer and writer, Mr.Tom Saunders.

The headline on my blog post is a quote by America's greatest humorist, Robert Benchley. This is our 9th episode and it's all about Tom's new book-

Mind you, I had no idea who Robert Benchley was, nor did I know anything about the Detroit Athletic Club. I thought it was some boxing gym. ;) But I do know about Dorthy Parker, and upon hearing how she and Benchley were super close friends I had to learn more.

If you are interested in wit, humor, history, Hollywood and Detroit during the 1920's-1950's make sure to check out our "Happy 1/2 Hour Show" and also Tom's book, which is a collection of writings by Robert Benchley, many never before published.
tom saunders, and my love, jesse!

I see a bird, a plane, no it's.... YpsiGirl's Happy 1/2 Hour show in the big studio with her sidekick (husband!) jesse sinatra and super special guest Muruga Booker and musical guest's... Muruga and The Rain Forest Band!!!

After 12 years we made it back in the big studio... three cameras with a crew of 12 volunteers- and three sets. And No time for practice, this is our first LIVE taped episode!

This was supposed to be a simple first show... "ease into it again" my director, Dave Chappel advised. But just like the old "Safety Girl" days on public access t.v., the show took on a life of it's own.

With no run through and no editing...No one including me had any idea how this show would turn out- jesse and I did meet with Muruga a few weeks prior for several hours to see what direction our interview would go in... lol
We knew after that visit, it was not up to us... That took a huge weight off my shoulders, so I decided to focus on decorating my set instead. ;)

I am honored to have Muruga and The Rain Forest Band on our first episode in the big studio. It is my hope to be able to do the big studio shoot again a month from now. But no matter what, our Happy 1/2 Hour series is on every 2nd and 4th Friday 7pm sharp.

Oh, yes... you can have more of  Muruga and The Rain Forest Band as they just happen to have a CD release party this Friday evening Sep 10th in the Ypsilicious hot spot night club, Savoy.
