Stewart Brodian on Take Charge of Your Life

Apr 5, 2018

This week's guest was Stewart Brodian, who has been a WDIY host since the station's inception in 1995.

Since 2012, he has hosted Brodian's Basement, a TV show variety program featuring independent short films, music videos, interviews and walk arounds. He has also been a Howard Stern impersonator since 1991 and on May 3 will attend a celebrity impersonator networking night during the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival in the Greshom Y in Philadelphia. He also recently published a book entitled "Here's the Future You Asked for," available on Amazon.

"Getting Grace" might very be well be the first nationally released feature movie to be filmed entirely in the Lehigh Valley. That's part of the fun in seeing "Getting Grace" on the big screen. In addition to many local sites, you also may recognize Bethlehem native Dan Roebuck - the movie's star, director, co-screenwriter and one of the producers. At the center of the film is an extraordinary performance by Madelyn Dundon - a Bethlehem Catholic High School graduate and West Virginia University theatre major - as Grace.
