From Hollywood Boulevard, it’s The WOW Report for Radio Andy on SiriusXM! That’s right WOWers, World of Wonder Co-Founder Fenton Bailey, Executive VP of Development Tom Campbell, and WOW Report Editor James St. James have collaborated with reality TV guru and friend of WOW, Andy Cohen, on a weekly Top Ten Countdown of the things from the past week that make us go…WOW!
It’s a pop-culture obsessed hour complete with colorful diatribes, opposing opinions, and a dissection-like discussion that will make your drive home from work more fabulous!
10) Pepsi & Kendall Jenner’s Tone Deaf Commercial
Another Kardashian kontroversy! We discuss the now-pulled Pepsi commercial with Kendall Jenner and there are many, many questions. Who green lit this? Who is going to take the fall? Is Kendall partly to blame? Did Pepsi throw her under the bus? Get our take at 4PM!
9) Power Rangers
We FORCED James St. James (not really) to go see the Power Rangers reboot, and he LOVED it! Well everything except the whole gay thing. Meaning there isn’t NEARLY enough of it. Unless we’re counting the campier-than-Christmas Rita Repulsa. Power Rangers is in theaters now.
8) Hello, Dolly!
Just after wrapping Menendez: Blood Brothers in Vancouver, Fenton took a mini-vacay with his family to the Big Apple and hit the Great White Way. They managed to get tickets to a preview of Hello, Dolly! with Bette Midler – and the Divine Miss M did not disappoint. You know it’s the hottest ticket in town when one woman won’t give up her ticket, even after she was run over in front of the theater! Hello, Dolly! opens April 20.
7) RIP Gilbert Baker – Creator of the Rainbow Flag
We said goodbye to one of our brothers this week with the passing of “the gay Betsy Ross” Gilbert Baker who created the rainbow flag for gay pride in 1978 at the request of his friend Harvey Milk. Gilbert passed away at his home in New York City. He was 65.
6) Koko the Gorilla Who Talks
We LOVE Koko the Gorilla! This PBS documentary “features footage from four decades and examines both the relationship between American animal psychologist Penny Patterson and gorilla Koko, as well as the evolution of scientific methods.” Stream Koko the Gorilla Who Talks on Netflix.
5) Groundhog Day the Musical on Broadway
Groundhog Day the Musical – based on the 1993 movie starring Bill Murray & Andie MacDowell – is in previews on Broadway right now, and Fenton got tickets to see it as well! He gives his thoughts on the show, and luckily no one was ran over this time. Groundhog Day the Musical opens April 17.
4) The Boss Baby
This animated movie goes way deeper than you would think, and it’s not because of the Trump comparisons. The Boss Baby starring the voices of Alec Baldwin & Tobey Maguire was the number one movie in the country last week and is in theaters everywhere.
3) James St. James’ Technology Beat
New this week in the world of technology – SpaceX’s previously used space rocket which will save us MILLIONS in space travel. Also smart phones are on their way out and you’re NOT GOING TO BELIEVE what is coming next. Finally, Douglas Coupland – the godfather of Generation X – says that the 9-to-5 way of life is barbaric and we’ll soon be only working a couple of hours a day.
2) Sunset Boulevard on Broadway
1) Barry Manilow is GAY?!?
Barry Manilow just came out to People magazine at the spry young age of 73 because he thought his fans would turn on him, but should we as gays be upset at him for not coming out for so long?
Listen in at 4:00PM EST and again at 4:00 PST (7 PM EST) on SiriusXM!
And be sure to give your ears the gift of THE WOW REPORT on Radio Andy SiriusXM EVERY Friday.
Do something this weekend that makes YOU go WOW!!!
