The Show is UP: Norm Clarke Confidential

Miles wasn't feeling well, so Amy from GritstoGlitz.Com filled in this week as we grilled Norm Clarke about his DUI, his eye patch and his "come to Jesus" visit with Bobby Baldwin. Plus, Hunter Hillegas joined us to talk about his super-cool VegasMate iPod app. Check it all out by clicking on the date to hear it or right-click to download the show and listen whenever you want.

Nov. 11: Norm Clarke Confidential

Pete Rose bitch slapped him. Criss Angel threatened to blind him. And countless celebrities and notables alternately love and loathe him. Norm Clarke, this city’s premier gossip columnist, joins us in the studio this hour to talk about his adventures in the ever-fascinating world of Las Vegas fame and to discuss his new book, “Sinsational Celebrity Tales.” In the process, we learn more about Norm's famous eye patch, about his infamous DUI arrest and about what kinds of stories he doesn't touch.

Plus: Criss Angel's suckage, poker's big night, Aliante opens, Adelson's fortunes keep sinking and Stomp is being replaced.

Also, thanks to Amy from for filling in while Miles was ailing.

Terry Lanni steps down and I have to learn about it in the WSJ? I guess I can't rely solely on this blog for my Vegas news! :)

I seem to recall Norm's previous appearance on The Strip was to answer a trivia question about where his TV ad was filmed. Something like a hallway at the Gold Coast.

I found Norm's interview difficult to listen to. I'll never understand how many reporters can have such a hard time staying focused and getting to the point, when they are the interviewed. Maybe that's why they are written, not voice reporters.
I can't make heads or tails out of his DUI story, except that it sounds like a blood test takes days in Nevada, instead of hours, like the rest of the U.S.
