Strom or Breadsticks? We Make Newburgh Native Michael Rosenbaum Choose His Favorite Hometown Food [Listen]
The reason we started playing This or That with our guests is so we (and you) could get to know them more on a personal level - so you wouldn't just think of them as (insert job title) from (insert local non-profit). Liberty and I have also found that playing this silly little game turns out to be a good icebreaker, which is perfect for some of our guests who might be kind of nervous about being on the radio.
But what do you do when you have a guest that just about everyone knows, and who is not nervous at all when it comes to being on the radio, TV or even in movies? The guest I'm talking about is actor, writer, director, podcaster, musician and Newburgh native Michael Rosenbaum. In his case, Lib and I decided to hold his feet to the fire - no softball questions here. We presented him with some tough choices in regards to music, his living situation, his next role, and his favorite hometown food. Michael is not shy about his love for a Pizza King stromboli and Noble Roman's breadsticks. He has actually had folks here in the Tri-State ship some of that grub out to him in Los Angeles. So, which one will he choose? Listen to find out.
(You'll notice a short little pause at about 3:45...that's Michael's call waiting kicking in...on his landline. Haha!)
