NEW Article: Online PR News Features QAF Reunion and Sheena Metal
The show, which aired on 1-11-11, brought together seven cast members of the much-loved QaF series, including Sharon Gless (Emmy winner for “Cagney & Lacey” and now on USA’s “Burn Notice”); Gale Harold (CW’s “Hellcats”); Peter Paige (just featured on TNT’s “The Closer”); Michelle Clunie (now on ABC Family’s “Make it or Break It”); Scott Lowell (NBC’s “Heroes”); Thea Gill (SYFY’s “Riverworld”); and Robert Gant (just featured in Fox’s “Bones” and TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland” with Betty White).
“The audience response was tremendous for this program,” Sheena notes, “with so many people attempting to listen live that the servers crashed for several minutes. The station very quickly had us up on the air again and they immediately scheduled a repeat airing for the 9-11 p.m. slot so listeners could hear anything they missed and new listeners could join the fun.”
The “Queer as Folk” episode is not the first time the SME has hosted cast reunions, having previously featured seven members of the cast of LOGO TV’s “Sordid Lives” including interviews with star Rue McClanahan and creator Del Shores (who was also a producer/writer on “Queer as Folk”).
As an oasis of intelligence in radio broadcasting, LA Talk Radio is offering programs on a whole spectrum of content. Leading the way is the Sheena Metal Experience, taking place every Monday through Friday from 5-7 p.m. West Coast time. It is heard live on LATalkRadio(dot)com and then lives on with the complete programs hosted on both the station site and the free podcast section of iTunes.
The Sheena Metal Experience takes the idea of a talk radio show into new realms of entertainment. “It can be happy or sad, funny or profound, depending on the wishes of the guests,” notes Sheena. A radio personality in Los Angeles for the past sixteen years, Sheena Metal is dedicated to the proposition that anything serious can be made to be funny and anything funny can be taken seriously. “Which probably will make it funny,” Sheena adds.
When Sheena and her guests get together, it’s always unscripted, unpredictable, uncensored, unusual, and “un-normal,” Sheena adds, “because in today’s world, who has time for normal?”
