The Strip is LIVE Tonight W/ Celine's Director

Yes, we are back for a home-stretch of shows before we close up shop in August. Tonight, we feature an in-depth conversation with "Celine" director Ken Ehrlich, the man also behind countless Grammy telecasts. We talk about just about everything, from the all-new effects that close Celine's new Colosseum show to what it was like to film and stage her duet with herself. Also, we learn why Celine wasn't at the United Center in Chicago for Oprah's star-studded sendoff, which Ehrlich also produced.

So here's what we're doing. At 8 p.m. PT, we will begin to play the interview with Ehrlich, and you can hear that and chat with other listeners (and probably watch our dogs frolic/snooze on a couch) on this UStream site. And then, when that's over, Miles and I will do the regular portions of the episode. The podcast of all of it -- in the correct order -- will be available tomorrow some time when I get to editing it.

I hope you'll be there. But if not, I'll try getting the podcast out as quickly as I can, so you can subscribe to The Strip (it's free!) in iTunes or Zune to get the latest show and various specials.

P.S. I also am due to interview "Celine" orchestra leader and violinist Phillippe Dunnigan today. We'll probably issue that interview separately as a special in the podcast feed later this week since the Ehrlich interview is quite long as it is.
