I’ve just heard from Live that they’re interested in booking me to do a Holiday Gadget buying segment in late November or early December. I’ll let you know when I get a solid date for it.
Meanwhile, I’m compiling a list of cool new gadgets to present. Got any suggestions? I’d love to hear ‘em. Add a comment here.
I did Live! today. As sometimes happens, Regis was on vacation. I usually don’t find out until the day of. I think the staff is conditioned to downplay Regis’s vacations in case guests cancel. As it happens, Andy Richter, Regis’s guest host, was great. Very funny and actually interested in the stuff. Kelly was her usual gracious and warm self. They’ve already asked me to plan another appearance in February.
Henry went with me this time. He took some pictures, yesterday during rehearsal. This is of the audience area – but, of course, there’s no one there when we rehearse.
The crew was readying the set for the holidays.
This is their Christmas tree, before decorations.
I shot this video of Henry testing out the Karaoke machine.
Andy and Kelly had a great time with the karaoke machine. They also liked the Roomba robot vacuum and the Piano Avanti. Here’s a complete list of products I demoed on WNN and Live…
