Jeannie Powers - LI NEWS RADIO 103.9 Entertainment Report 1.16.15

Hey everyone!!

Well a week ago I made my Entertainment Reporter debut on LI News Radio 103.9 FM and even though I have been on morning shows & podcasts and even on LI News Radio before, I had never been so nervous in my life. I literally had sweat underneath my eyes. I thought I was going to shit my pants all over the studio. Jay Oliver had me practicing breathing excercises seconds before I went on and for those of you who listened you might have heard the quiver in my voice. At the end of my first segment, I let out the biggest sigh of relief. I dont remember anything except my first sentence...Hey Gleek Fans!! 

I know it is not easy to get up at 7am. I can tell you I certainly have a hard time getting there by 6:30am. For my second day at the studio I left my report at home, I was sick and had to wing it but I didn't do too bad. (I did email it to myself but I couldn't get a signal at the airport!!)

For those of you across the country & around the world & my parents who can't wake up early enough to listen to my report I will be posting it here on my Funtasian page every week after the show. I covered the Oscar & Razzie nominations and the Golden Globe awards. 

Next more of this award crap and back to entertainment news and pop culture from around Long Island, the region and the nation. 

I promise to start blogging again. I have been such a slacker. Maybe I will VLOG my next day in the studio with Jay and George for shits and giggles. George and I have a great time behind the scenes making fun of Jay. The Bobby Flay look alike...

One more thing...A big thank you to Nardy Honda Smithtown for sponsoring my entertainment report. hehehe. They stand the test of time...

The JP Pop n' Stuf Podcast - Episode 4

Hello and welcome to Episode 4 of The JP Pop n' Stuf Podcast 

In this installment we talk about Man of Steel vs. Superman Returns where I completely tune Melanie out because I am thinking about Henry Cavills glorius body, Melanies take on what happened to Harrison Ford during the filming of Regarding Henry, my horrible description of Divergent, Melanie's obsession with Ed Kemper(she kept his creepy face on the monitor the whole time), Melanies disgusting burping habit, trying not to stay on topic, our latest diner experience & much much more. 

Next week I will be bringing you my review on Thor & Enders Game. I can already tell you that Thor was amazing because he is undeniably the hottest man in hollywood right now & I dont really care about Enders Game but I love m&ms in my popcorn so I will use any excuse to go to the movies. 

Melanie refuses to eat until people post comments about our podcast. Please do so by posting a comment below or she may not make it to Episode 5. So you are either going to kill her or make her really really fat. I on the other hand do not need a reason to eat. EVER...

Inside the Flip Side: Spotlight on The Chris Monty Show...

I had the great pleasure of being a guest on The Chris Monty Show with Host Chris Monty, Co-Host Matt Burke and also Chris Roach.  I couldn't have asked for a better trio to sit in with. They are 3 of the funniest comedians I know & I definitely needed a drink first before going in the studio with these guys. It went by so fast. I can't wait to come back.  

Click the link below to listen to the Po' Pourri Episode 12 with ME...  

We talk deep frying skin, Matt Burke names my first book, my life in the rice patties, why I'm a Minnesota Viking fan, the lovely bar where I met my husband, sperm whales, dung and other fun stuff. 

Recently Chris Monty filmed a funny commercial for PBS called meet the Tanners. Click the youtube link below to watch the hilarity

Inside the Flip Side - Spotlight on the Mick Thomas Show - Epi. 39 - Trust No One

Cue the X-Files theme song here.

The Mick Thomas Show has taken a different turn for their 39th episode. Conspiracy Theories. Joining Mick in the studio are Jimmy Britt, Dom Dolce & Comedian Matt Burke.

Was the Boston Marathon Bombing Staged? Was Marshall Law necessary? What happened to the guy who blew off his legs? Is the government working to remove our guns over time? Does fear govern the people? What really happened with Building 7 in the World Trade Center? Did we really land on the moon before everyone else? You can be sure that anything huge in the news will trail with a conspiracy theory. What will you believe? Did aliens really landy at Area 51? Cue the X-Files again...What would Mulder & Scully do?

Conan O'Brien Fully Exposes Mainstream Media...check this out

I agree with Mick that nobody had any idea who Chris Christie was before the storm. I had no idea who he was before this show.

Jimmy questions everything he hears in the media, Mick plays devils advocate & Matt Burke is the all knowing conspiracy theorist. Thank god for Dom who brought the laughs and his wonderful head of hair.  

Do you know what HSBC stands for? Listen to find out...those damn Asians

Check out the Clinton Body Count. - An interesting read.

One thing I did agree with in this podcast was the clip of Jeff Daniels on my favorite show Newsroom where he talks about America not being the greatest country in the world. Whoever wrote that is a genius.

I personally love hearing & reading about conspiracy theories although I hold no opinion so this was a good episode for me. If you are into all the supposed conspiracies around us, listen to the Mick Thomas Show Podcast Episode 39. Click the link below.
