You are no doubt familiar with comedian Frank Caliendo’s work. You have seen him on the Fox Network, Mad TV, Fox NFL Sunday, Frank TV on TBS and more. His impressions of John Madden, President Donald Trump, Jeff Goldblum, Ted Knight, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neesen, and countless others have also made him a semi-regular on The Bob and Tom Show.
On the podcast today we find out how Frank is changing his stand up act to be more Frank Caliendo and less impressions. Finding your voice isn't always easy.
For Frank, his journey has included acting lessons and telling more personal stories about his wife and two kids. We also learn how Frank got his start in comedy, his first big break, his love of table tennis, future acting roles and so much more.
Frank Caliendo has plenty to say as “Frank” and I was engrossed. I think you will be too! Enjoy!
Not sure why I gave this show the Summer Lovin’ title, except it was a summer night and Britt, Tiffany and I tackled all kinds of topics including love. All kinds of love; self love, royal love (royal wedding), relationship love, fantasy love, you get the idea.
We also discuss dieting and how Britt likes her food “on fire” literally! Have you ever heard of a drama eater? Me either, we learn about that in this episode.
And for some bizarre reason we shared ideas for our own funerals. Other topics I had jotted down in my notes with no other explanations include: Body Holiday in St. Lucia, Handmaids Tale, Fortnite the video game, poison ivy, 4th of July, online dating, movies, and the Thai rescue operation.
I hope we touched on something you have to hear more about! Cheers!
Try interviewing two Indy Car drivers when one of them is from Columbia and Columbia is taking on England in the World Cup on the TV above your head! I had the honor of doing just that with todays show featuring two time INDY 500 winner Al Unser Jr and INDY car driver Gabby Chaves.
While Gabby may be teaching Al a thing or two about soccer, Al is being paid to coach Gabby in everything racing. After retiring from a successful driving career, Al Unser Jr is now employed by Harding Racing. And for Al it’s a dream come true.
His new career finds him wearing all kinds of different hats, coach, obtaining sponsorships, helping in the shop, consultant almost anything asked of him except actually driving the car.
This lively banter between the two drivers is full of April Fools Day pranks, drones, road rage, oddest vehicle ever raced, death defying pace car laps with Bob, Tom, me and Al around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and more.
Plus you may even be inspired by the touching story of Al’s daughter Cody and her life changing foundation. All in all a great ride!
From a small town in southern Indiana to opening for Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban, Clayton Anderson is taking on country music.
It hasn’t been an easy battle and he continues to fight but Clayton has the talent, drive and likability to make it big! Although he didn’t pick up a guitar until his senior year in high school he learned fast.
He started a band while attending Indiana University in Bloomington but after college started working in the “real world” at a mortgage company and in landscaping.
Entering the Kenny Chesney’s Next Big Star battle-of-the-bands contest changed everything. He won the Cincinnati round in 2008 and opened for Kenny at the Riverbend Music Center. He shares a bit of what it was like backstage that night complete with a Leann Rimes sighting.
Afterwards he was officially bitten by the music bug and moved to Nashville to pursue a career. This naive young man arrived in 2009 with a dream and a lot of determination. After a few years of hitting the pavement, writing songs and dropping off CDs all over Nashville he released his first album “Torn Jeans Tailgates” in 2011.
We are so lucky to have Clayton perform for us live “Only to Borrow” off that album. He has continued to write and record and treats us to another live tune “Your Love is Like Country Music”.
Learn what it takes to make it in the world of music from writing, performing and marketing yourself as an artist. A man with a heart of gold and a bushel full of talent, catch him on tour!

If you grew up in Central Indiana in the 70’s and 80’s you probably listened to WNAP. Cris Connor and his band of rebel “djs” changed the radio landscape and left a mark on many a listener. I would be one.
I was in high school when I first heard “the Wrath of the Buzzard”. It was in your face, loud, exciting, topical, and the music: free form. It sounded like their parents were gone for the weekend and they could get away with anything, and they did.
I was fortunate to sit down in the Bob Tom studios with a few of the major players recently: Cris Connor, Fast Freddy Fever, Bruce Munson, Ann Craig and Buster Bodine. Talk about stories.
We find out how all of this madn
