Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of creepy old men with British accents, cigars and pot bellies who keep promising to put me in moving pictures… in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida! We know Tippi Hedren for many reasons. As a young model, she was plucked from a successful career in one field by British film director Alfred Hitchcock to star in two of his most fondly remembered works, The Birds and Marnie.
Today on Mr. Media, a very special interview from my archives: Phil Everly, who with his brother Don formed the legendary 1960s singing duo, the Everly Brothers. This telephone conversation was recorded on June 18, 1984 for a St. Petersburg Times story I wrote in advance of the brothers’ first appearance at the then-new Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida. They returned again a year later and I’m proud to say I saw both extraordinary performances.

Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of Saturday Night Fever fans who left the theater and couldn’t stop cursing like a mofo for months – or maybe that was just me? … in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida! Actor Kyle Bornheimer was on Mr. Media recently and told me a story about his fifth or sixth birthday party.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
