TGS 230-The Author Carolyn Day Podcast

4Dec

You all remember our interview with Lynyrd Skynyrd tour manager--and crash survivor--Ron Eckerman.

You probably also know that Ron lost his battle with acute myeloid leukemia this past May.

Before his death, he met and fell in love with Carolyn Day, who has chronicled the inspirational story of Ron's last days with her new book, The Last Tour.

Although Ron was given very little time to live, and almost died on several occasions, this book is not depressing. It's full of laughter, hope, and a love story that demonstrates selflessness and commitment during an incredibly difficult experience. From finding each other as soulmates, to discovering Ron's condition, and then the endless days of 24/7 care and companionship that followed.

All the proceeds from this book go to the Leukemia Foundation, and you can pick it up on Amazon.

TGS 229-The Live From Dealey Plaza Podcast

22Nov

Dealey Plaza was the site of a watershed moment in American history.

As such, and because it's within driving distance of The Tom Gulley Show headquarters, we headed to downtown Dallas to walk around the plaza and visit The Sixth Floor Museum, which is in the old Texas Schoolbook Depository.

We took along walking JFK encyclopedia, veteran broadcaster, and former member of the Dallas police crime investigation unit, Dave Michaels. We take the route JFK took downtown, visit the grassy knoll, almost run over a cat, discuss conspiracies, and visit the Spaghetti Warehouse.

It's an informative podcast you'll want to file back, and to the left.

TGS 228-The James McEachin Podcast

11Nov

James McEachin is a guest we're honored to have for Veteran's Day.

Because even though this acclaimed actor has appeared in over 150 television programs & motion pictures alongside Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Bette Davis, and Henry Fonda--he lists his military service as his proudest achievement.

And his story of service is truly unique. Severely wounded in Korea, he'll tell the story of receiving a Purple Heart and Silver Star some fifty years later. And, he'll tell how that story influenced his incredible new film project, The Purple Heart.

He even shares a few readings from the screenplay for the film. One listen, and there'll be no doubt Mr. James McEachin has major acting skills.

His appearances include Hawaii Five-O, The Rockford Files, Mannix, All In The Family, Dragnet, Adam-12, Tenafly, Play Misty For Me, Sudden Impact, and those are just a very few. (And we'll also discuss his record producing career, including working with a young Otis Redding.)

We'll talk about the distinguished military service and acting career of James McEachin on this very special Veteran's Day episode.

TGS 227-The Betty Page Podcast

10Nov

Betty Page, in just a few years of modeling in the 1950's, created a look that would span decades.

And then, just as suddenly, she completely disappeared into seclusion in 1959.

Then in 1987, Greg Theakston brought Betty back into the cultural spotlight with his publication, The Betty Pages. Each issue revisited Betty's past modeling, and the era that she thrived in. Soon, her trademark bangs could be seen everywhere.

Greg joins us to talk about Betty's life, her reasons for going into total seclusion, and the conversations she and Greg had regarding her status as a cultural icon. Plus Betty's thoughts on posing without any clothes on.

It's an episode all about the one and only Betty Page--told by creator and publisher of The Betty Pages, Greg Theakston.

TGS 223-The First SEALs Podcast with Patrick K. O’Donnell

28Oct

Patrick K. O'Donnell's new masterwork, First SEALs: The Untold Story Of The Forging Of America's Most Elite Unit, tells a tale so amazing you might not believe it actually happened.

Because, at every stage of his new book, Mr. O'Donnell keeps topping the "OMFG!" moments of true history with yet another mindbending event in the formation of the Maritime Unit--the fledgling WWII group that pioneered the special forces concept.

The book features an adventure-addicted dentist, Hollywood idol Sterling Hayden (who changed his name to join the OSS), inflatable surf boards, and NFL kicker of note, and a cast of characters worthy of a major motion picture.

The only real question this book leaves uncovered is "Why is Patrick K. O'Donnell wasting his valuable time on The Tom Gulley Show?"

We're not going to look a gift horse in the mouth, regardless of the answer. And neither should you. Get First SEALs immediately. Thank me later.
