Attention online listeners:

  • **PLEASE NOTE: Allan's WSJS weekday show (Mon-Fri 3-6 PM) and the weekend syndicated show (Rock Talk) are two separate and very different shows. Both shows can now be heard on WSJS.COM. For now, the Sunday show also airs on WSJS 3-6 PM (ET).
     
  • Other radio Stations air the weekend show (ROCK TALK) at different times throughout the weekend. To make things easier for our WEEKEND STREAMING LISTENERS, we now stream continuously from 6pm Sunday to 10am Monday (ET) on USTREAM and host recent archives of the show there.
     
  • Another great way to hear the show is with the free TuneIn App for your tablet or Smartphone. Just go to your favorite App Store and download. For a couple of dollars you can get the Pro version that allows you to record the show. Very cool.
     
  • You can also find older podcasts of theAllan Handelman Show from over seven years of daily afternoon shows (4p-7p) on FM Talk WZTK. Plus this is where to hear the "Sunday Night" shows from most of the last 7 years up till March 2012 (Rock Talk with Allan Handelman) Subscribe via RSS
     
  • We hope this makes things a little more convenient than just offering two different airing times.

Among the guests and topics on this week's show:

  • Also this week, Christmas with Rob Halford (JUDAS PRIEST) in the 3rd hour.


Click to view on Amazon.comHis latest book, "Lovemaster'd" is taken from the name of Craig's on-stage Love Master character. You might know Craig Shoemaker as the unmistakably engaging, iconic, baritone-voiced character, The Lovemaster. Maybe you were one of millions who saw him in his decades of successful stand up comedy. Or you may have seen one of his specials aired on Showtime, HBO, ABC, CBS, NBC and just about every other major network. Perhaps you saw him in a TV show or movie like Parks & Recreation, The Bold and The Beautiful, or in Scream 2?

Or maybe you just recognize his voice: Pleasantville, many characters in numerous animated series, and all the voices (and even the title song) for the BBC cartoon, Big Foot, Little Foot.

But he's far more than just The Lovemaster...

What you may not know (yet!) is that Craig Shoemaker is dedicated to using laughter as healing modality. Yep, the Lovemaster is a peace-loving new-age hippy dedicated to using laughter to heal the world. Who knew! With his retirement from standup comedy scheduled for the end of 2014, he's now focusing his efforts on his new organization dedicated to the cause, Laughter Heals. With a weekly show, movie and book coming soon, Craig hopes that he can bring The Laughter Movement to the mainstream.

"Shoe," as he's often called, began his career in his hometown of Philadelphia, where he honed his comedic skills and characters while bartending and attending Temple University (winning the "Best Comedian" award from Philly Magazine). A natural storyteller with sharp observational instincts, Craig’s performances are often based on the hilarious -- and sometimes shocking -- twists and turns of his own life.

Click to view on Amazon.comHis latest book, "Lovemaster'd" is taken from the name of Craig's on-stage Love Master character. While the book is not intended to be a comedy per se, it certainly has its funny moments. It is centered around an incident that happened to him 7 years after his first marriage ended bitterly, and had been happily remarried. One day, out of the blue, he received a Facebook message from Leah, a casual acquaintance, who confided in him that her marriage of 30 years was ending.

Something in Leah’s deeply sorrowful message struck a chord with Craig and he wrote her back to offer some of his own hard-won wisdom on how to handle the dissolution of a marriage.At the time, Craig’s troubles with his ex-wife were far from over and he found himself needing Leah’s insights and support as much as she needed his. What evolved was a unique journey and an extraordinary friendship, conducted entirely through Facebook private-messaging.

Through their correspondence, Leah and Craig struggled together through life’s storms and eventually triumph over them, transcending into fully realized lives enriched by mindfulness, acceptance, and grace. Oftentimes painful, frequently funny, and always emotionally riveting, Lovemaster’d is a page-turner that imparts priceless lessons on spiritual awakening, in dramatic, can’t-put-it-down style.

Dick DeBartolo the Giz Wiz is back. He reviews the latest unusual and useful products. Electronics, tools and hi tech gadgets of all kinds. He is still MAD MAGIZINES MADDEST WRITER and has been for over 40 years. Watch for his regulaer appearnces on ABC’S World News Now. The Giz Wiz does a gadget show every week with co-host Chad Johnson on TWiT – This Week in Tech! www.twit.tv/giz. Dick DeBartollo. http://gizwizbiz.squarespace.com/
www.gizwizbiz.com/.

DeBartolo was also a successful writer for TV game shows, beginning with Barry-Enright before moving on to Goodson-Todman. Writing for Match Game, DeBartolo is credited with coming up with the bawdy and suggestive style of questions that the show is remembered for. During the early 1960s, while writing for Match Game, DeBartolo cast several of the show's panelists and guests in his own 8mm film comedies, which he shot on the studio's rooftop. A rare public showing of those films was held in a Manhattan hotel ballroom in 1964.

DeBartolo told GSN in 2006 that when The Match Game moved its production west in the 1970s, he stayed in New York and mailed in his questions to the Match Game staff in Los Angeles. The West Coast version ran for nine more years on CBS and in syndication. Besides his experience on the Match Game, DeBartolo served as creative consultant on other Goodson-Todman game shows, such as Tattletales and Super Password. In 1971, he was able to induce Mad publisher William M. Gaines to appear on To Tell the Truth as himself; all four panelists failed to pick out the real Gaines. After stumping the panel, Gaines jokingly denied knowing DeBartolo.


Click to view on Amazon.comAuthor of TASTING WHISKEY, Lew Bryson is also the "WHISKY ADVOCATE" MANAGING EDITOR.

Industry insider Bryson has spent the last 20 years immersed in the world of whiskey — writing about it, thinking about it, drinking it, and talking to the people who make, sell, drink, and collect it. He has traveled the world tasting whiskey, and has acquired an uncommon breadth of knowledge and a full-spectrum experience of international whiskies. In TASTING WHISKEY, he shares his passion for whiskey in a fun, approachable guide designed to enrich and educate readers as they embark on their own whiskey journeys.

A comprehensive manual for all levels of enthusiasts, TASTING WHISKEY maps whiskey styles, profiling each of the major types of whiskey, discussing their differences, exploring how and where they are made, and describing their unique flavors. Bryson walks the reader through the process of tasting and teaches how to collect and age whiskey. He also includes cocktail recipes as well as suggestions for food pairings.

There are other guides to whiskey on the market, but, in the words of Bourbon, Straight author Charles K. Cowdery, TASTING WHISKEY "is the only whiskey book you need."
