We are pleased to share with our readers, that our SDTR Columnist Interviewer James C. Harrison, has been the occasional guest film reviewer and film historian (for now 7-years) on MOVIE ADDICT HEADQUARTERS on Blog Talk Radio (on Tuesdays at 1pm) - which  celebrated its own 7th Anniversary Show.  Out of the top ten shows of the Year,  James came in as Most Popular & Most Listened-to Show, for two out ten shows!  James was ranked # 4, with Rita Moreno and Robert Osborne - and # 2 for "Hollywood or Bust" - a new book review and interview with the author - so, out of 52 shows per year they do, they have 263,000 listeners around the world .... James  DID WELL (...and he is very big in Botswana!).

We also very, very deeply regret the 'passing' of Broadway-film, and loveable star-of-stars  ROBBIN WILLIAMS (at 63), of 'suicide' - at his home this past week.  As one of world's favorite comics,  Robbin, will always be loved and remembered for his meaningful quotes:  "See, the problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis - and only enough blood to run one at a time." and, my favorite -  "I used to think the  worst thing in life, was to end up all alone ... it's not.  The worst thing in life, is to end-up with people that make you feel all alone."  .... We will soooo miss you Robin ....
