Take a Trip in the Hollywood Time Machine

Time MachineCancel your Saturday night plans, because I’ll be guest co-hosting the inaugural episode of Hollywood Time Machine with Alicia Mayer live tonight at 9 p.m. (ET) on L.A. Talk Radio.

Guests include Victoria Wilson, author of A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel True 1907-1940, Steve Anderson from the Humphrey Bogart Estate, TCM Party founder Paula Guthat, Susan King from the Los Angeles Times Classic Hollywood Facebook Community, and Cassandra Majors from the Classic TV Lovers Haven group on Facebook.

Your host is Alicia Mayer, film historian, book editor, and grandniece of MGM co-founder Louis B. Mayer. She also sings, dances, and does a delightful mime act, which you probably won’t be able to fully appreciate on radio.

And the best part of Hollywood Time Machine is, you don’t need a time machine to listen to it, nor do you need to be in Hollywood (in any era). The show broadcasts live on the Internet, and you can also listen via L.A. Talk Radio’s app. And if you’re not available to listen while it happens, each episode will be archived for streaming (unless I say something stupid, which will result in the master tapes being retroactively burned in the 1967 MGM vault fire.)

You can also connect with the show on the website and Facebook, and follow Alicia on Twitter and at her website, Hollywood Essays.

I’m excited to help launch the Hollywood Time Machine, and I hope you’ll join us.

  1. What’s the appropriate way to wish a podcaster success? Break a leg? Well, whatever it is, I hope everything goes great tonight. Hubbs and I will try to tune in live!

  2. I’m listening to it right now 😉

  3. Congrats to you and Alicia on launching this podcast!
