Just gonna post here sine I don't think there is enough interest for its own thread that Gilbert will be the guest programmer on TCM Oct 30, might be the 31, but I'm pretty sure its the 30th. The guest programmer sits and is interviewed by Robert Osbourne and introduces the films they picked for the night.
Howard had Gilbert on once this past year. Typical Howard interview. An hour of shotgun questions with constant interruptions. Humorless. Howard treated Gilbert as if he were never on the show and hasn't developed a brilliant history with it.
There was nothing, NOTHING better than those times Artie and Gilbert would step all over Robin as she became frustrated trying to read her mundane yahoo news printouts like any of it mattered. Thanks for the heads up about Gilbert doing some other appearances on Artie's show, I'll try tracking them down. Gilbert is probably my favorite Stern show guest of all time.
And its another reminder just how unbelievably low Wiggy has sunk in his twilight years, in terms of turning the show into a mere shadow of its former self, cruising along most days in a sort of sclerotic self-parody, unable to remain relevant or keep up with the imitators it once disdained.
