Dick De Monkeys Around on Shokus Radio

February 24th, 2010 | Posted in MAD Magazine

While Dick De Bartolo is not actually a monkey as depicted above (this was the only caricature I have drawn of him, hence the silly post title) he will no doubt be doing plenty of monkeying around on “Stu’s Show” today on Shokus Internet Radio.

If you are not familiar with Shokus Internet Radio, it’s a… wait for it…. radio station on the internet. Stu Shokus has a live broadcast on Wednesdays, and callers and e-mailers can pose questions to his guests who are “top celebrities from the world of television, both in front of and behind the cameras”. Writer extraordinaire Mark Evanier is a frequent guest

Today’s show will feature Dick De, who is not only a longtime writer for MAD Magazine but a writer for many classic TV game shows including “Match Game” and “To Tell the Truth”. The show will air today live from 4-6 P.M. Pacific Time, and you can call in with your questions and comments for Dick De toll free at (888) SHOKUS-5 or e-mail them at comments@shokusradio.com.

Dick De is an entertaining fellow, so it should be fun to hear. I don’t believe the show is accessible via podcast or “on demand” anywhere, but they do rebroadcast it at the same time during the week… but then of course you can’t call in and ask any questions, now can you?

A special thanks to my friend and fellow caricaturist Jim Batts for the heads up!
