A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen Radio #422: The King of Love is On Hold
There are good shows, and then there are shows when I am truly inspired. And tonight was such a night. And I can honestly say it was all about you, the listeners. So many great comments and inspirations. It's like I jump start the show, and then you all chime in, getting me to go farther than I thought I could!?!?

Maybe I'm just excited to be losing 280 pounds on January 20th? I don't know, but this was a fun show to host.

So this is a new dawn, yes? How are you going to approach it? What are going to do differently leading into the next four years? What are your hopes and your fears?

There are so many opportunities standing there in front of us. Let's not lose focus on what makes us great. And let's allow music to be a binding force for good.


The rules are simple:

You choose ten celebrities (from any industry) you believe will meet their demise by December 31, 2021.
The only rule: you may NOT contribute to their passing.
Email the list by January 31st (no one on your list may have passed before you get me your list) to
I know this is morbid; my name is HELL
