    Hi Scott & Melissa!

    It’s Pasquale. Thanks for including me in this episode. I am Italian. I do live in Orlando. The name is real. The voice is real. The accent…is total crap!

    I’m full blooded Italian but I’m from New York. I’ve been in FL almost all my life. I have held opera gigs at local theme parks, resorts and restaurants with an Italian theme. Singing at the Venetian would be awesome but I won’t be able to bring my family to Vegas living anytime soon.

    I am coming to LV from 8/22 to 8/25 for my 34th birthday. It’s kind of a guys weekend out. If you can score me a gig at Venetian I’ll love you forever! Ha!

    Thanks for playing along. Looking forward to hearing much more!


    P.S. Melissa was right. I said “maybe you could TRY to sing like Andrea Bocelli” but did not say you already do. All the best.

    That was a fun voice mail, Pasquale. Thank YOU for playing along. (Although it was clear you really MEANT to say I sang like A.B.).

    Hey, I’m only about 10 or 15 minutes into the podcast but I had to comment… the “Cussy McCussison” nickname cracked me up. Perhaps the Naughty Jelly Sweet nickname has met its match!

    While it is true that Melissa goes by many names. . .and that it’s tough to pin just one AKA on her, I am still quite partial to Naughty Jelly Sweet. (Of course, I have a bit of a sweet tooth.)

    Metro pizza is great! Believe it or not a local radio personality used to talk about it on his show here in Columbus, Ohio and that’s what got me to try it. In addition to the locations you mentioned, there used to be one in Ellis Island Casino; not sure if it’s still there.

    Regarding Melissa stealing all your punchlines — you may be too young to remember (actually, I am, too), but George Burns gave Gracie Allen all the funny lines on the Burns and Allen show and it didn’t seem to hurt his career. :-)

    This was a really enjoyable episode. Hope Melissa feels better!

    Glad you liked the show, BC.

    I *MAY* be too young?!?!? Of course I’m too young!! Gracie died in 1964! How old do you think I am?!?! :)

    I meant you may be too young to be aware that George Burns was famous for anything other than his solo act. I certainly didn’t mean to imply you were old enough to actually remember Burns & Allen when they were current!

    Just kidding around with you, BC! No worries!
