“THE FRANK DeCARO SHOW” SIZZLES ON SIRIUS OUTQ MORNINGS

Radio and TV personality serves up “Bicoastal Brunch;”
Big-name guests and hilarious banter on the nation’s only 24-hour GLBT station.

NEW YORK, NY (February 2007) – ”The Frank DeCaro Show,” broadcast live from New York and Los Angeles and heard nationally from 11 am to 2 pm EST weekdays on SIRIUS Satellite Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI), shakes up brunch-time fun with a potent coast-to-coast mix of gossip, glamour and gonads on SIRIUS OutQ, America’s GLBT radio station.

Reflecting the outrageous personality and rapid-fire silliness of host Frank DeCaro – star of the recent GSN series I’ve Got a Secret and the former movie critic on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart – the three-hour chat-fest that’s “a little light in the woofers” has attracted an astounding assortment of quirky guests since its 2004 debut.

DeCaro and sidekick Doria Biddle, the “Kevin Bacon of lesbian Los Angeles,” who co-hosts from Hollywood, have welcomed such diverse celebrities as Samuel L. Jackson, Bette Midler, Steve Carell, Felicity Huffman, Timothy Olyphant, David Boreanaz, Martha Stewart, Alan Cumming, Tracey Ullman, Matthew Modine, Susie Essman, Michael C. Hall, Paul Reiser, Andy Dick, Clive Barker, John Waters, Lewis Black, Caroline Rhea, Steven Weber, Huey Lewis, Jon Lovitz, Dick Cavett, and The Amazing Kreskin.

The show’s eclectic guest list runs the gamut from Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Tony Orlando and Dawn, and from New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast to best-selling author Brad Meltzer. Among the show’s favorite guests have been comedy pioneer Phyllis Diller, Broadway legends Bernadette Peters and Tommy Tune, actor/writer Bruce Vilanch, New York Doll David Johansen, “Saturday Night Live” alumna Ana Gasteyer, filmmakers Joel Schumacher, Terry Gilliam, and John Cameron Mitchell, playwrights Paul Rudnick, Charles Busch and Douglas Carter Beane, publishing legend Helen Gurley Brown, comic book superstar Alex Ross, internationally acclaimed choreographer Matthew Bourne, “The Office” actor Rainn Wilson, cult film stars Tura Satana (“Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”) and Mary Woronov (“Eating Raoul”), and, hold on to your sailor hat, The Captain and Tennille.

The show’s popular “Dial-An-Icon” segment has allowed callers access to a multitude of pop culture legends including Nancy Sinatra, Tippi Hedren, Valerie Harper, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, Barbara Feldon, Barry Williams, Adam West, Carol Channing, Brett Somers, Butch Patrick, Kitty Carlisle Hart, Bob Mackie, June Lockhart, Bob Eubanks, Polly Bergen, George Takei, Doris Roberts, Lucie Arnaz, “Golden Girls” Betty White, Bea Arthur and Rue McClanahan, and the rarely reunited casts of such classic TV series as “The Facts of Life” and “The Addams Family.”

“Chez Phyllis,” the show’s weekly food feature, has hosted such famous foodies as celebrity chef Mario Battali, legendary food critics Mimi Sheraton and Gael Greene, Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl, famed chocolatier Jacques Torres, restaurateur Stephen Starr, TV chef Michael Chiarello, and the Too Hot Tamales, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger.

In addition, such gay comedy pioneers as Kate Clinton, Scott Thompson, Lea De Laria, Jim David, Suzanne Westenhoefer, Bobby Rivers, Jason Stuart, Elvira Kurt, Bob Smith, Jackie Beat and Lady Bunny are frequent visitors to the show.

The Frank DeCaro Show’s regular correspondents include Paper magazine “Cinemaniac” Dennis Dermody, NY Observer columnist and author Simon Doonan, pet expert Dale Bartlett of the U.S. Humane Society, TV critic Jim Colucci (author of The Q Guide to The Golden Girls), Broadway chronicler Ken “That’s Kentertainment!” Kleiber, and In Touch magazine gossip guru Lisa Arcella. Regular features include “The Paul Lynde Bitter Queen Memorial Multiplex,” in which Frank channels the famous Hollywood Square.

Author of the well-received memoir A Boy Named Phyllis and a former New York Times style columnist, Frank DeCaro has had a prolific career in writing and performing.  In the early ‘90s, he wrote the groundbreaking “Frank’s Place” column in New York Newsday, the first openly gay humor column to run in a major American daily newspaper.  He also has been a consulting editor for TV Guide and Martha Stewart Living, and occasionally contributes DVD reviews to the Arts & Leisure section of The Times.  His writing has been published in myriad publications including Newsweek, Vogue, Entertainment Weekly, Travel + Leisure, In Style, Time Out New York, and The New York Times Magazine.

A much sought-after pop culture pundit who has appeared on such shows as NBC’s Dateline, CNN’s Showbiz Tonight, Inside TV Land: Tickled Pink, and numerous VH1 countdown programs, DeCaro recently starred in 40 episodes of an updated version of the classic game show I’ve Got a Secret on GSN, The Network for Games. Previously he was best known for his nearly seven years as the film critic on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.  He also co-created, co-wrote and hosted five half-hour Academy Awards previews, The Fabulous Big ‘O’ Special, for the network.

Producer and co-host Doria Biddle has written for the popular animated series Rugrats and Recess, and offered her slyly funny commentary on various talking-head programs.
