BRETT WINTERBLE INTERVIEWS ELLIOT TIBER

****
ON THE RADIO
****

Elliot Tiber




XM’s Brett Winterble interviews Taking Woodstock author Elliot Tiber tonight (at 10:00 PM PT-channel 166) and got him to reveal for the first time, that a third and final tome on Woodstock, penned by him, will be released in the summer … titled After Woodstock (via Square One Publishing).


Winterble, who called the Woodstock event a “touchstone of our generation,” at one point, asked him what memory remained with him the most from the legendary event in 1969. Tiber replied, “Richie Havens’ performance of ‘Freedom’ – it was what we wanted, we fought for, and though it didn’t happen right away, is finally starting to come true. Don't forget - the event was peace, love and music.”


Tiber also talked about his new book out this week called, Palm Trees On The Hudson, which is about his life in New York and his association with Judy Garland. “I had put together a show for a very famous judge … and, the talent was Garland. She gave me some advice then that I have never forgotten. Meeting one of my idols was amazing indeed.”

WINTERBLE INTERVIEWS JENNA HILL MISCAVIGE

****
"My Secret life Inside Scientology And My Harrowing Escape"
****


Brett Winterble




XM RADIO’s BRETT WINTERBLE intervied JENNA HILL MISCAVIGE; the niece of Scientology-leader DAVID MISCAVIGE, on her thoughts of having left the Church of Scientology in 2008, as portrayed in her new book “My Secret life Inside Scientology And My Harrowing Escape (Morrow).” Winterble asks her about her uncle in her early days, asking what he was like, “He popped up every so often, brought presents, but the people around him were always very afraid of him. I heard stories of him yelling and beating people.”

Winterble also comments that many aspects of Scientology have an almost militaristic-quality to them. “L. Ron Hubbard was in the Navy and so many of his rules went that route.” Jenna met her husband in the Church and left together in 2008. Winterble asked if there had been any retaliation from the church for their exit. “In the beginning we were followed and they met with my husband’s parents to try to convince them we had joined some sort of terrorist group. They finally gave up and stopped.”


Winterble comments on the public’s ongoing fascination with many of Scientology’s celebrity members, like Tom Cruise and John Travolta. “What most people don’t realize is that the celebrity sect of the Church is very different. There’s a beautiful church, secret entrance, but very different. The Church targets celebrities because everyone follows them.”

KATO KAELIN TALK ON BRETT WINTERBLE SHOW

Kato Kaelin



When the KATO KAELIN revelation came about last week, writer MARC ELIOT who had done a book with Kato around the time of the OJ trial was thrust back into the limelight. In an exclusive interview on tonight’s BRETT WINTERBLE SHOW on Sirius/ XM, he explained to Winterble, “What most people don’t remember is that at the time we collaborated, Kato was trying to start up a career as a comic; trying to develop a routine in fact. The trial made him something of a household name. I knew he liked that and I see these recent revelations as a way to possibly make that happen again.”

Eliot goes on to say, that out of everything he was told by Kato, when he watched his testimony, very little of what he knew was onscreen.

PAT COOPER SLAMS HOWARD STERN AGAIN

Howard Stern




The feud between 83-year old comic PAT COOPER and HOWARD STERN shows no signs of diminishing.

On BRETT WINTERBLE'S Sirius/XM talk show (who is tub-thumping his book How Dare You Say How Dare Me! - Square One Publishers), the comedian continued to savage Stern, talking about everything from America's Got Talent to the recent passing of his dog. Cooper said he can't believe Stern is on Americas Got Talent: “He doesn't know talent … because he doesn't have any talent!”

He also had choice words for Hillary and Bill Clinton, President Obama and Mitt Romney. He said Mitt’s biggest problem is that “He’s surrounded by his money.”

THE NEW VOICE AT SIRUS XM BRETT WINTERBLE

****
TIMES SQUARE GOSSIP RADIO
****


Brett Winterble



There’s a new voice in town … Sirius/XM’s BRETT WINTERBLE 



Radio shows and hosts come and go; there’s no discernable difference sometimes, unless you're dealing with the likes of a Howard Stern, Jerry Springer, Rush Limbaugh, Wolfman Jack or Scott Shannon … that ignite the masses. There’s a mid-year addition to the map that so far has drawn serious contention from the public and industry alike … BRETT WINTERBLE. He is the radio host, producer and writer for his own Sirius/XM show; a three-hour program which airs daily. It’s on XM 168, Monday-Friday at 9:00PM EST. He also serves as the executive producer of the Roger Hedgecock Show; and, on occasion as the fill-in host there. Winterble has worked as a producer on the Rush Limbaugh Radio Show where he was active in parody creation and phone screened for the show. Winterble was with Rush's daily show from 2000–2006, when he joined the Michael Reagan Show in Los Angeles. Says Winterble, “Growing up, my radio influences were Howard Sterm, Larry King, Sally Jesse Raphael, Larry Glick and the 80’s radio show, Metal Shop.”

While his Sirius show has jumped on the political bandwagon with a fiery fervor, last week, Winterble and his producer Brandon Damore, began interviewing more entertainment personalities. “My personal guest list would be, The President … any of them! The Pope, Mark Sanchez and Eli Manning, to find out if they kind of hate Tebow-mania … and, Robert Plant who is sort of like the Quarterback of Led Zeppelin … and, a rock ‘n roll statesman.”

Brett also interviewed Sarah Tressler, the woman who has been in the news for the past several months. She is the former Houston Chronicle society writer who was fired for being an exotic dancer on the side. Her book, Diary of An Angry Stripper, comes out later this summer. Adds Brett, “I would like my show to be thought of as a place that is comprised of an ongoing conversation with topics that cross hours, days, even weeks. An ongoing conversation of entertainment and politics with a dose of sarcasm ands tongue in cheek humor.”
