Bobby Slayton was in the news last week. He posted a message on Facebook and Twitter about the death of his friend David Brenner. He had to post a correction when he found out that Brenner was still breathing. Brenner died a few hours later.
The great news is David Brenner is still alive & hanging on by a thread. The bad news is through erroneous info I prematurely killed him.

Before and after the interview Bobby and I reminisced about two things we had in common. He grew up in Scarsdale, which is one train stop away from where I grew up in Crestwood. In 2000 and 2001, we both worked at the Comedy World Radio Network in Marina Del Rey.
