THE RAT PACK INTERVIEWS ROBERT J RANDISI! ~ (as overheard by Absolutely*Kate)


THE RAT PACK INTERVIEWS
ROBERT J RANDISI

(as overheard by
   Absolutely*Kate


"Hey fellas ~ what about this Bob Randisi guy? He's sure turning out a bookshelf load of RAT PACK MYSTERIES, you notice?"

"About a six-pack by my count now Dean and #7's gonna be a bullet on the charts too. Bet your bottom dollar."
 
"What about my top one?"
 
"Yeah, that'll work too. The guy puts the terrific in prolific."
 
"Man oh man - over 540 books and he still has time to talk to his bookie. That's even more songs than you've cut vinyl on Frank."
 
"Yeah yeah, sure, sure ... the guy's good and Katie set up the low down on our RAT PACK Mysteries right HERE, but let's fire some Q's at the mystery man under the hat and see if he's worth his snuff."
 
"Fair enough. You goin' first?"
 
"Might as while. I'll get to the bar sooner . . . "

     
DEAN's just so damn cool.

So pally, what do you drink when you're knocking these books out so literally?


RJ RANDISI expounds
  
Dino, I'm a bit like you. I drink in public (imported beer), but in the privacy of my office is iced teas, diet coke, and coffee.

FRANKIE sends me . . .
Yeah Mac, that's good. Me? I wanted to tell you you've got infinite panache there under your fedora. Cock your hat - angles are attitudes. Now let's get to the important stuff. What music plays to set your attitudes just right?
  


RJ RANDISI swings
       Well, Frank, you know you're playing in the office all the time, as are Dino and Sammy. But there are some others, like Michael Buble, Elvis, the Beatles, Lucinda Williams, Bob Seger, Queen Latifah, Brian Setzer and more.



SAMMY?  EEE-O-ELEVEN!
Me? 
Hell Bob - I just wanta know if you got any regrets . . . or have you done it all your way?




RJ RANDISI is solid
     
 Regrets, Sam?
I've had a few, but why dwell on them? I've pretty much done this my way, and I think I'll continue to do so.



Sammy,
you pilching
my lyrics
again?

Aw geeez Frank. 
 I don't have many easy songs.

ABSOLUTELY*KATE: Thanks you gorgeous gents. Man oh man how I love you guys. RJR's Rat Pack Mysteries are sellin' right over there with the popcorn and jujubes at the Sugar's Shack AT THE BIJOU. See 'em up close. You'll be hooked!
