    Milling About with Ted Neeley

    in Entertainment

    It's been 42 years since the original cast and crew of the 1973 film Jesus Chris Superstar have all been in the same room together, and tonight (April 27), Director Norman Jewison, Ted Neeley (Jesus,) Yvonne Elliman (Mary Magdalene,) Barry Dennen (Pontius Pilate,) and Josh Mostel (King Herod); to name a few, will reunite for a special screening at the Beekman theater in New York City.


    Getting the band back together so to speak would've happened much sooner for Ted whose boundless enthusiasm for what he calls his life-changing role has never left. He tells host Robin Milling, “I've been trying to get this reunion to happen since the film came out. I've been trying to get all of us together to do another production; if nothing else just to hang out for a few days. It's never happened until now. And the fact that we'll all be in the same place at the same time with Norman is a miracle!”


    Miracles have been known to happen in the life of Jesus Christ, but it almost didn't happen for Ted who reveals he almost missed out on being cast in the iconic role. He also tells Robin how he met his wife of over 40 years, Leeyan Granger on the set and how their two children have been happily following dad's adventures as a superstar.


    Most actors run from one role defining their legacy but Ted has embraced Jesus, still performing the role wherever and whenever he can; most recently touring Italy for a year. He says joyfully, “It completely changed my life, spiritually, personally. So why slap that in the face? And I still love it; every performance is like the first time all over again. That music starts to play and I just lift off the ground, 'ok take me wherever you want me to go!”

    Andrew Rappaport Talks About His New Book, "What They Believe."

    in Religion

    Chris interviews Andrew Rappaport of Striving For Eternity Ministries about his new book, "What They Believe." Andrew shares why it is important why we need to understand what other religions believe and how it effects our ability to share the gospel with their adherents.  Andrew's new book details what various religions believe about their God, Jesus, their own holy texts, sin and salvation.  Knowing these details will help you as you share the gospel on the streets.  Also, Rich and Chris will discuss counting the cost of being a follower of Christ.  As a pluralistic culture races to accept various other world religions, it continues marginalize Christianity.  Followers of Christ will find themselves continually in the crosshairs of a culture that hates and rejects Christ as Lord and Savior.  Are Christians prepared for what is ahead? All this and Chris has a whale of a tale.

    Milling About with Kevin Pollak

    in Entertainment

    Kevin Pollak joins host Robin Milling at the Tribeca Film Festival, now in it's 14th year to discuss his film Misery Loves Comedy. Kevin wrote and directed this insightful documentary about what goes on behind the laughter and what drives today's hottest comedians to get up in front of a roomful of strangers to be the center of attention and tell jokes. Kevin was ultimately curious about the type of person who suffers from 'hey look at me syndrome devoted to acceptance and appreciation.'


    He tells Robin he began with a very strict shooting schedule which allowed for a commitment from comedians; most of them his friends such as Jimmy Fallon, Amy Schumer, Christopher Guest, Janeane Garofalo, Bob Saget, Lisa Kudrow, Tom Hanks, Kevin Nealon, and Larry David; to name a few. By the end he had over 60 but one that was sorely missed is the late Robin Williams, a mentor and close friend to Kevin, who unfortunately was not available during the locked-in time. Kevin says they had hour-long conversations which made up for his absence, and when he passed while he was editing the film it was a 'no brainer' to dedicate the film to him in his memory. “It was frustrating for both of us. He wanted me to know how much he wanted to be in the film, how much it meant to him that I was doing this and spoke a great deal about his own journey and misery and happiness and life. All of those things that long-time friends talk about.”


    Kevin keeps very busy with his own podcast, Kevin Pollak Chat Show, and has no immediate plans to join his friend Larry David on the Broadway stage in A Fish In the Dark. He tells Robin, “I'm happy for Larry's now historical Broadway success but that is the last thing I want to do!”

    An Author's Journey

    Have you always wanted to write a book, but weren't sure about what your message would look like?

    How many people will your first book impact? Do you have the courage to write it?

    If there were no rules in writing your first book, how would you choose to write it?

    What if the story you have to tell is the invitation for others and YOU to transform life even more? Are you willing to explore the possibilities of creating you, different (ly)?

    ISAIAH 7 Controversy? This was NOT a prophecy about Yahshua/Jesus

    in The Bible

    The Immaculate Conception term is what many use when referring to the birth of Jesus. In doing so the Catholic Church has touted that Matthew 1 meant that Isaiah Chapter 7 was strictly referring to the birth of the Messiah of Israel. We don't believe so!! Let's see why...

    Dreams -- What Are They Revealing About You and Your Life?

    in Spirituality

    We've all had them.  The dream where you can barely move as a horrible threat closes in on you.  The dream where you're naked in public.  The dream where you can't remember how to get home or find your way to class at school.  And the exhilirating dreams of flying that we don't want to ever end. 


    Would you like to know what these images are really showing you and telling you about your life? On our next Blogtalk Radio show I will interpret your dream for free. To request a dream interpretation just call in.  I will take as many "dream calls" as possible during the one-hour show.

    What are your thoughts about what's going on Baltimore?

    in Education

    In the midst of what's going on in Baltimore, I wanna know what people think about the actions that are taking place. I've had countless discussions about this, since it's inception, and I'm almost exhausted already. There have been many different viewpoints that I've been a part of, and I would love to hear from you. What confuses me, is how people are saying that violence isn't the answer.....when in fact, violence is what has started it from the beginning. What are thoughts about what President Obama said, Ray Lewis and other celebrities? What constitutes a proper response? Do you like the response of the community? How do you think the elected officials have handled it? Are these actions warranted? How do you think media has handled the coverage? Cops, parents, politicians, clergymen, teenagers etc. are all encouraged to call in and share your thoughts tonight.
