On Sunday July 14, at 8 pm Eastern, PULP FRICTION WITH PAUL LEVINE welcomes award-winning television writer-producer (and all around funny guy) Carmen Finestra, the former Supervising Producer of "The Cosby Show", and Co-Creator and executive producer of "Home Improvement", the sitcom starring Tim Allen.

Carmen is a distinguished alumnus of Penn State University and a 3-time winner of the Writers Guild of America Award. He also received a Peabody Award for his work on "The Cosby Show".

He has a home in Santa Monica, but spends much time back in central Pennsylvania, where he and his wife, Tonia, have helped take care of their elderly parents for the last 10 years. 

Lately, he's been in Watertown, New York, as part of the broadcast team for a wood-bat college league team. He is testing a new way to broadcast minor-league baseball, making the fans  part of the broadcast by bringing them up to the radio booth to share their life stories and have fun with the broadcast team.

The show will be archived on http://authorsontheair.com/
