    Sitting down with my breakfast with the TV on TCM (Turner Classic Movies) and a commercial for the station comes up about the "Essentials" and it shows Robin Ophelia Quivers as a guest programmer. How'd she get that gig in 2015? I mean who is she to the film history world?

    GUEST PROGRAMMER: ROBIN QUIVERS
    Robin Quivers, TCM Guest Programmer for March, has distinguished herself on radio for more than 30 years as the quick-witted co-host and news anchor of The Howard Stern Show. Maryland native Quivers, who also has published books on her life experiences and dietary habits, tells TCM host Robert Osborne she has been "hooked on movies" since childhood. As her programming picks, Quivers chooses four movies with a common theme: the pursuit of the American Dream. She admires the splendid dramatic performances of Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor and Shelley Winters in A Place in the Sun (1951) and those of Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee and Claudia McNeil in A Raisin in the Sun (1961). When it comes to comedies, Quivers says she was "mesmerized" by Judy Holliday's turn in Born Yesterday (1950) and the teaming of three of her favorite actors--Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant and James Stewart-- in The Philadelphia Story (1940).

    Robin doesn't strike me as the TCM type. She watches more movies than anyone because she has more free time than a preschooler, but she's also not discerning.

    No Brad Pitt movies. He's not a movie star. Right, Robin? Robin?

    How is she qualified for this??? All I've ever seen are other actors doing this.
    What perspective can she bring to this being a radio person?? Give me a break!
