Last Night’s Radio Show With Michael Craig; Book Signing Tonight in Rancho Mirage

by Lou on May 12, 2006

The radio show I’m hosting with Amy Calistri at continues to become more and more enjoyable for me. Last night’s show was the fourth one we’ve done, and we’re getting much better at it. We neither suffered the ills of dead air time nor did we step on each other’s toes.

It’s not that easy to avoid, since Amy is broadcasting from the show’s studio in Austin, TX and I’m in California, but we seem to be getting better at it.

Last evening’s guest was Michael Craig, author of The Professor, the Banker, and the Suicide King, the book that tells the story of Andy Beal’s high stakesm heads-up matches with Ted Forrest, Jennifer Harman, Todd Brunson, Barry Greenstein, and some other Las Vegas big game players who pooled a bankroll of $10 million to take turns playing against Beal.

Michael is a great guest in the sense that all you have to do is say “Hello, welcome to the show,” and he’s off and running with stories that range from hi-stakes poker tales to a story about how he wound up in bed with Annie Duke watching a porn video — it was all quite innocent, but you’ll have to listen to his story to believe it — when her boyfrined walked in on them.

The show is, or soon should be archived at, so if you weren’t able to listen to last night’s show in real time, you can hear it at your leisure.

By the way, if any of you live in the Palm Springs area, I’m doing a book signing along with a poker seminar tonight, at 7:00 PM at Borders Books, located at “The River” in Rancho Mirage — Highway 111 at Bob Hope Drive. Hope you can make it.
