Sandra Bernhard is famous for many things: her roles in Scorsese's The King of Comedy and TV's Roseanne, her one-woman shows, her relationship with Madonna in the 80s, her outspoken activism, and putting drag queens on the map. In town to perform her latest one-woman show I Love Being Me Don't You?, she called in to talk about her love of fashion, her childhood dreams of being a "comedienne", where her confidence comes from, how being a mother has changed her and why she doesn't love twitter, but tweets anyway. Oh-- and it's pronounced Sandra, like SAND-ra, or ANN-dra... not Sahhdra like BLOND-dra. Just tune in, you'll understand.

Turns out I did not have to be blitzed to have an enjoyable conversation with Cheech Marin. Of course everyone knows him as one half of Cheech & Chong, but he's also an art collector with one of the largest private collections of Chicano art in the United States. While in town being honored as Art Hampton's Patron of the Year at their international fine arts fair, he stopped by the studio to talk art, improvisation, getting his start in a topless bar in Vancouver, why he and Tommy broke up and how they got back together, why marijuana needs to be legalized, what it means to him to be Chicano and how he got the name Cheech. Plus-- the conception of 'Dave', Sister Mary Elephant and more.
