This week’s CALLING OUT had another extraordinary opportunity to meet a totally amazing and funny person I really have loved listening to on the radio for years, and years. I used to sit in my car in the garage to hear his entire broadcast sometimes as my kids were screaming to get out of the back seat. He also is featured on DRUNK HISTORY on this week!!

Radio Legend, Phil Hendrie was in the Sideshow hizzy! He tried to punk the Music City Medium, Cindy Kaza as he played his right winged, mom of two, Bobby Dooley and her character of a husband Steve Dooley. It’s almost like he channels these people to the point you can almost see the real person right there in front of you. It’s fascinating.
Does Medium Cindy Kaza meet the challenge? Does the Psychic Medium Du Jour see his bluff? Well we think she punked him!
Also, the talented Psychic Rebel Colby is in studio and finds Phil more interesting as a subject since she sees everything for what it is..

In Memory of Robin Williams
I never met Mr. Williams, but always really, really wanted to. Dr. Drew always knew how star struck I was, so he got Robin’s autograph for me back when he showed up one day at MTVs ‘Loveline’ back in the early 90s. He told Robin I was at home up to my ears with our triplets and was a huge fan. So he wrote a message out on a big piece of computer paper,
“Susan, at your Cervix, Nice to meet you!”
Thank-you Robin, you made me laugh through some trying days with that autograph when I battled depression. If you were on TV, I stopped, and I watched. You were and are still The King for me and many more. Sorry Elvis, move over.
I consider Robin’s death like the loss of a president this week. Tragic that he could not be saved at 63. A few weeks ago, after I met a star chef I always wanted to meet, Mario Batali, I mentioned to my husband that all I had to do to be complete was to finally meet Mr. Williams. He mentioned that I better do it quick, but that I might be disappointed. He also said he fought he might have depression related to a medical problem.
I said, “oh no.”
Dammit, he was right as usual. I’m too late. We are all too late. Although it was not a surprise, I had a moment when I had tears come to my eyes like many others. My condolences go out to everyone. The world has lost and extraordinary person way too soon. Unable to express myself because of anger, I just believe that if we could all just get past the stigma of mental health issues and substance abuse, we can keep our loved ones alive until old age brings them home again. We should not turn away from those whom are sad and lonely, or angry. No one likes a negative person. But even the most positive role models need help too.
