Richard joins hosts Jay Michaels and Jim Richards of the NewsTalk 1010 afternoon show The Rush for Booze and Reviews! Today we share personal stories about the life of Meat Loaf. Then, it’s the story of the cocktail Jack Rose and how a sordid story of corruption torpedoed its popularity, and no, it has nothing to do with “Titanic.” Then, as if that wasn’t enough, we play “Does Richard Crouse Like These Movies?” and review the new Ethan Hawke thriller “Zeros and Ones,” the psychological drama “Marionette” and the return of Ray Donovan in “Ray Donovan: The Movie.”
Richard joins CTV NewsChannel and anchor Jennifer Burke to have a look at new movies coming to VOD and streaming services, including the new Ethan Hawke thriller “Zeros and Ones,” the psychological drama “Marionette” and “Ray Donovan: The Movie.”
On the Pop Life Podcast this week we meet two men who have persevered to find success. Jonathan Goldsmith, “the world’s most interesting man,” and Meat Loaf, whose album Bat Out of Hell was rejected by the record industry before it was embraced by fans.
