From The Silverstone Collection:
Former Patch wine columnist and TV and radio personality is hitting the airwaves again with a new show dedicated to entertainment and lifestyle spanning two continents – "Time Out with Phillip Silverstone." The show will debut Thursday, March 29 at 1 p.m. on WWDB 860 AM.
Silverstone has been on Philadelphia’s classical music radio station every day for 20 years hosting a feature called “Time Out For Fine Wine” where he exercised his irreverence, dry British humor and ability to blend show business into an otherwise-less-than exciting topic.
Silverstone's new show will focus on two audiences – the Philadelphia area and his native London. His esteemed first guests will include British actress Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada and Salmon Fishing In The Yemen), Hollywood screen legend Eva Marie Saint (On The Water Front and North By Northwest), and British Pop music legend Sir Cliff Richard.
Regulars on the show will include travel guru Andy Mossack (who has a weekly show on the BBC); gossip king Lloyd Beiny, CEO of World Entertainment News Network (WENN); and Jill Weber, “The Wining Archeologist,” who owns Jet Wine Bar in Philadelphia. Greater Philadelphia Film Office Executive Director Sharon Pinkenson (who made Philadelphia “Hollywood East”) will be a regular guest on the show talking about local film shoots and celebrity watching.
The show will feature theater and entertainment news, dining out and healthy eating tips on both sides “the Pond,” and music from unsigned artists.
Silverstone is expecting a bigger-than-average audience for his show thanks to the patronage of guest and musical icon Sir Cliff Richard.
“I am very grateful to Sir Cliff Richard, who obviously had a great time chatting with me, for posting a link to my website on his fan site and his Facebook fan page," said Silverstone in a release. "Now hundreds of thousands of his devoted fans around the world will hear his interview on my show – now that’s seriously cool!”
According to Silverstone, the pre-recorded shows will be broadcast every Thursday from 1 to 2 p.m. in Philadelphia and his website will carry live feeds for U.S. audiences and podcasts for the entire world.
