After a few weeks off, CHML’s Scott Thompson had plenty of questions. First he wanted to know all about my recent trip to Dieppe. I was in France for the memorial celebrations surrounding the 70th anniversary of the WWII invasion (see previous postings). David O’Keefe, the Montreal historian who spent 15 years digging into declassified, ultra top secret files about the WWII raid, just announced a book deal with Random House based on his findings. Good thing, too–O’Keefe’s work on this subject pretty much re-write the history books.
Scott also wanted to talk about Charlie Sheen’s new sitcom Anger Management, which he likes. I tell him Martin Sheen is joining the show as–who else?–Charlie’s dad. We also talk about Rosie O’Donnell’s heart attack, reports Michael J. Fox may be set to make a return to series TV and cutbacks at NBC’s Tonight Show–sounds like Leno is taking it on the chin. Yes, I actually typed that. You can listen in here.
