Rob Barnett

Rob Barnett was formerly a president of programming at CBS Radio  and was also an executive at MTV and VH1 (where he memorably spent a day with George Harrison when he visited the studio for a chat with John Fugelsang.) Rob called in to talk about his new book  “Next Job, Best Job: A Headhunter’s 11 Strategies to Get Hired Now.”  

Rick Dees

It was great catching up with radio legend Rick Dees.  My first radio gig was running the board (manning the controls) for Rick’s Weekly Top 40 syndicated radio show, which he still hosts to this day.  We shared a little bit of radio history, and then talked about his new book “Rick Dees All-Time Top 40 Greatest  Desserts,” which features a pie crust recipe that has vodka and lard in the ingredients.  I’m in!

Leeza Gibbons

Leeza Gibbons is an Emmy award-winning television host, successful businesswoman and best-selling author.  Her newest book is “Fierce Optimism: Seven Secrets for Playing Nice and Winning Big.”  We discussed how we “worked together” back in the ’90s on her syndicated radio countdown show, what she means by “Fierce Optimism,” and why a climate of positivity and kindness results in a more successful business and successful life.
