Kip Addotta - October 9, 2014 - "This morning I had the great pleasure to appear on the Sandy Kastel and Friends Show on KLVA 1230 AM radio, in Las Vegas (9 am Monday through Friday). As you may know, I generally keep the "Carping Lamp" lit and it was indeed lit when I called into the show. Well, it wasn't more than a few moments into the interview when I found myself totally disarmed and chatting with two of the sweetest people that I have the pleasure of meeting. We were talking about cooking, kitchens, Sicilian and Italian food, grandmothers and family. I felt like a big dog lying on my back, paws apart, being scratched on the tummy with loving hands. Sandy (a Miss Nevada and singer) was welcoming and unafraid. Michael (Master Chef and drummer) fascinated me with cooking tips and hints AND they both allowed me to join in the fun, at will. The time blew by and then Sandy thanked me for being on her show and our visit was, sadly, over. I glanced at my custom-made Rolex and to my amazement, I had been on the air 45 minutes. I guess the old saying is true: (insert old saying here). So, if you're looking for some fun, listen to this show and I guarantee that you will be some or I will send your money back, no questions asked (BTW the show is free). Thank you, Tom Mazzetta for making this happen! While I'm at it, here's a shout out to Allen Nechy, my bookie. Let it ride."
