While Kristi is back from vacation, I, her humble producer, am not. Since I am the cause of this week's episode not being new, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite throwback episodes where we talk with Jimmy 'Mad Dog' Matis.
It's one of my favorites because I worked with Jimmy for 11 years at Q95 and he has a long history with the Bob and Tom Show. Plus, along with the Bob episodes, it's another sneak behind the curtains of one of the longest running morning shows in America.
Ron Jeremy the #1 Porn Star of All Time joins me this week. Ron’s career in adult cinema began in 1978 and he continues to work in the business today. One of those appearances happens on July 15th and 16th 2017 at the Ponderosa Sun Club in Roselawn In. Ron, along with other celebrities, are part of the annual Nudes a Poppin’ event. The top male and female adult entertainers from across the country compete for some big prize money and coveted titles. In case you would like to attend, Ron has all the details.
Then we get into a discussion on how some things have changed in the adult film industry since his early days. The word “bukkake” is brought up again on my show. Find out why. Hear what Ron is “up” to at this point in his career. (I will give you a hint to one of the latest ventures, “virtual reality”). He shares with us a couple of movie ideas he has had for quite sometime. I assure you they are very unique!
And did you know that he appears in Kid Rock’s video for Cowboy playing piano? Yes, music is also important to Mr. Jeremy. He plays not only piano but violin and harmonica.
And probably the biggest surprise to me was finding out his mom was a spy for the USA in World War II. That’s not the only war hero in Ron’s family. We learn about two Purple Hearts bestowed on his relatives. Yes we can talk seriously for a few moments then it swings back to porn. We find out our “porn names” using the first pet - street you grew up on formula. Who is the most famous person to say hi to him? Has he shook hands with a President or Presidents? What turns him on? Does he use ED drugs? Answers to these questions and more with the “Hedgehog” himself, Ron Jeremy.
I am quick to admit I have never seen a Friday the 13th movie. However, that didn’t stop me from sitting down with the man, who many feel is the best actor to ever portray Jason Voorhees, Kane Hodder. For this episode I brought along my cohort and horror movie expert Josh Arnold to share his expertise.
Kane’s story is compelling, from a childhood where his teen years were spent on the Marshall Islands in the South Pacific. Then becoming a stuntman in Hollywood and working on shows like Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, Dukes of Hazard and too many movies to list. (Safe to say if a movie had action in it, Kane was one of the stuntmen.)
Early in his stunt career he suffered a major burn injury over 50% of his body which had an incredible impact on his life. He now does work with burn centers across the country to help others. And of course, his path would eventually lead to acting. Fans don’t worry we do talk horror and movies and his run in the successful Friday the 13th Series. (This is where I start getting scared….)
He also touches on other famous “killers” he has played. And recently Kane was asked to reprise his role as Jason for the Friday the 13 video game. It’s a fascinating process to do motion capture for a game. And lets not forget he is also a part of a paranormal group called The Hollywood Ghost Hunters. Does he really believe in ghosts? We not only find out the answer to that question but also to what scares him. And learn about his latest film, a horror comedy, called “An Accidental Zombie (Named Ted)”. The premise of which is quite funny if not a bit unsettling for a horror novice like me.
I started out scared of Jason and ended up in awe of Kane! Enjoy!
