This week's author: Donovan "Bladerunner" Tate
Born on Aug. 26, 1969, in Birmingham, Alabama, Donovan Allen Tate inherited the gift of music. After taking lessons he played the piano, electric organ, & sang in the church choir. His ambition to become an actor and an anchor news reporter halted when he became influence by bands he saw on MTV in the early 80’s.
Tate’s musical career began at age 12 as a songwriter, during his 32-year career he worked on numerous projects such as Echoes in the Dark, Code Bleu, Wave Nouveau, Donovan 2525, and Dawn Chorus. His current project, his solo XI-VOX, is his first contemporary Christian synth-pop album, “A New Beginning”, off his own label Electro Underground.
Tate not only worked in the music industry as an artist, producer, manager, music coordinator, dj, journalist, and Minister of Music, but also in other field in the entertainment industry as on a local cable TV channel and performing at events and clubs doing original contemporary, romantic, and gothic poetry. Studying music, art, photography, computer & data entry, he earned his Associate Degree in the Arts from Faulkner University.
Tate Donovan, currently starring in the Oscar nominated Argo, and Deception on the small screen joins host Robin Milling. Some might remember Tate as Joshua, Jennifer Aniston's on and off again boyfriend on Friends, the concerned parent from The O.C., or Glenn Close's loyal law partner on Damages. Deception is the Monday night guilty pleasure which has everyone wondering whether Tate's character murdered his sister.
Tate tells Robin how his college days at USC rooming with Grant Heslov, who went on to become production partners with George Clooney, gave him a leg up casting him in Good Night and Good Luck and now Argo. Donovan is rooting for his buddy Grant whose film is sweeping the awards circuit, including director Ben Affleck who Tate says taught him a thing or two about directing.
Tate got his break behind the camera with the California based television series The O.C. taking advantage of his free time between takes to shadow the director. Most recently he directed an episode of Deception which brought him back to the scene of his childhood. He says staging a shoot-out at the Bronx bakery where his family frequented from New Jersey with six siblings in tow was a big thrill especially having his mother there on the set.

Sports is broken up into bad news and good news normally. There's usually more emphasis on the bad. This latest edition of Diehard Football Radio will attempt to effectively balance bad with good. What better example than Landon Donovan and Jim Harbaugh?

On the other hand, Jim Harbaugh is allegedly on his way out of the West Bay after the San Francisco 49ers dropped a decision to the Oakland Raiders. The panelists will discuss those 2 stories along with week 14 in the NFL with New England Patriots-San Diego Chargers along with Seattle Seahawks-Philadelphia Eagles, the final 4 college football teams for the first annual college football playoff, the Homer Report and much, much more.
