Cutting Room Floor: Eric Von Haessler, Caddy's Incident

Here's a nugget from the cutting room floor: WSB radio/Atlanta's Eric Von Haessler and Art discuss the morning the Regular Guys morning show got kicked out of a sports bar, live on the air! (The Regular Guys was Von Haessler's extremely popular morning show prior to his WSB show, at the old 96 Rock.) Art was there as a young freelance writer looking for a story to impress the editors of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and got involved in the action!

Art's comments: "I trimmed this from the original interview because it didn't pertain to the narrative of Eric's career, and I felt I was a bit long-winded (very unusual). However, it's a great story! I really thought there was a chance I might even get to write this one up for Rolling Stone at the time."

The rest of the world, i.e. non-Art Howard listeners, may not have heard of Dulcé Sloan yet, but she has a talent holding contract with NBC, so she'll be on their TV sets soon. She's also appeared on ESPN's Riggle's Picks and ABC's Resurrection.

Sloan takes the time to chat with Art for a follow-up to her 2012 interview, and details the amazing things that have happened to her in the past year: coming in second at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, which paved the way for an appearance at Montreal's Just for Laughs, and now, opportunities with NBC. 67 minutes.

Art's comments: "I knew Dulcé had the goods when I first saw her four years ago! Whether you seethe with sour grapes when someone does better than you, or if you know how to be genuinely happy for the success of others, this show is for you. Download it today, because when she gets a Top Five TV show, I'm jacking the price of this one up to $39.99!"
