I want to apologize because I recorded this interview a few days ago and I am just now getting it out because of some post-production issues. Part two of my interview with Tom Dreesen will be recorded and posted sometime next week after I return from Hawaii!
Bill Kristol is on a search for a third party candidate. Could he be looking for you??!!
I hope you enjoy my book recommendation! It is the first one that I have ever given on this podcast and it very well could be the last!
(5:18) My guest is Tom Dreesen. Tom is a stand-up comedian who toured with Frank Sinatra as his opening act for 14 years and became one of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ closest friends. Tom has hundreds of Frank Sinatra stories to share and there are no shortage of Frank Sinatra stories in this interview. He started out working with comedian and actor Tim Reid, who went on to star as Venus Flytrap in WKRP in Cincinnati. Tom even appeared in an episode of WKRP with Tim. He also worked with Sammie Davis Jr. He was on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” 61 times and was a frequent quest on “The Late Show with David Letterman”. There’s plenty much more to learn from Tom Dreesen, so please be sure to listen to next week’s episode featuring the second part of my interview with Tom Dreesen.
Tom is a marvelous man and a very gifted comedian who has had a very fortunate career, but not at all ready to hang it up yet. I had the extreme pleasure of interviewing him on May 16, 2016.
