Every time a bell rings, we get a new gay crush. And there’s an air raid siren going off now that we’ve been turned on to radio personality Ben Harvey. He’s cute, hilarious and smart, the trifecta on our Whom To-Do List.
Best of all, he gets around. And he’s easy to catch. (Also two of our favorite traits in a man.)
He can be found most often on SiriusXM’s BPM Channel 51 doing a segment called the “Afternoon Bender,” which is filled with the latest dance music weekdays from noon to 6:00 p.m.
But it’s his weekly podcast that launched in January that really gets us going. New episodes are released each Wednesday on iTunes and are archived on his web site, benderlounge.com. Here, he truly shines as a gifted interviewer and incredibly funny story teller. Recent guests have included Kristen Johnston, Carmen Electra, Coco Peru and Wendy Williams, each revealing candid details of their lives.
He also conducts Bender Booty giveaways, which always feature spectacular prizes, plus fills us in on great gay events around the nation.
So if you haven’t been listening to Ben Harvey, then you’re really missing out on some really great radio.
After all, life’s too short to listen to Rush Limbaugh.
