About me and my show: I'm Sal Lizard. I am an actor and entertainer. And I often appear at conventions to meet fans and sign autographs. One problem, that many actors have, is finding out about the conventions and how to get on the "guest" list. Likewise, fans are looking for conventions to attend, too. For that reason, I've created my "Convention Buzz" website. Also, I've learned that there are good conventions and some that aren't so good. But that's my opinion and yours might be different. This radio program gives promoters a chance to plug and "pimp" their events and, celebrities, vendors, and guests, a chance to discuss their convention experiences -- good or bad.
Note: Sal Lizard's "Convention Buzz" is a weekly unscripted, unrehearsed, and uncensored entertainment show presented through the BlogTalkRadio and "Sal Lizard's Uncensored Radio Programming" networks. Due to language used and content of an adult nature,it is not generally appropriate for all audiences. Callers are recorded and the recordings are available in the show archives. Callers may receive cash andor merchandise prizes for their participation in the show or its contests.

One of our team members will be spending Labor Day Weekend in Atlanta for the annual geekfest known simply as...Dragon Con. Oddball Extreme will be calling in live from one of the largest pop-culture conventions east of the Mississippi River. She's not gonna let two isolated Ebola patients stop her from having a good time! (And she doesn't have to get drunk for that, either!) We'll also discuss the huge impact other events have had over the years at this Con, including not one but two college football games going on nearby at the Georgia Dome, the annual NASCAR race, and Braves pro baseball at the same time not too far away. Can sports fans and sci-fi geeks live in harmony for one weekend?
