Talkin’ about the Gold Firebird on the Zookers Radio Program

Last week I was invited on The Zookers Radio Program, one of the latest additions to Blog Talk Radio. Hosts are Eric and Rob, also known as “the Greek gods of Internet radio,” and the subject was Thirty Years of The Rockford Files. It’s always fun to talk about Rockford, Jim Garner, and the Pontiac Firebird, especially with folks as knowledgeable as they are. It was a fun hour that went all too fast, but we’re talking about doing it again soon.

Here’s the link to our conversation:

Interview with Emmy nominee Michael Emerson of “Lost”

As everyone knows, the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards are on tonight, beginning at 8pm ET/PT on Fox. Among the nominees are Michael Emerson, who’s up for Best Suporting Actor for his role as Ben Linus, the charismatic yet creepy leader of The Others, on the ABC hit series Lost.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Michael earlier this year, just before Lost returned to ABC’s schedule after a three-month status. Besides gleaning some insight into the Ben Linus character, we touched on many other topics, from his previous Emmy experience (he won a Best Guest Actor award in 2001 for his work on The Practice), to his character’s back story on Lost, to how people are “delighted to be terrified” by him whenever they meet him. For the record, I was not terrified when I spoke to Michael… but I was delighted. He’s a very nice man, and I think you’ll enjoy our conversation. Ed Robertson www.edrobertson.com
