Direct Media Power on Complaints About Various Media Platforms

Direct Media Power is a leader in the pay-per-call radio marketing industry. They provide only commercials on radio because they believe the platform is superior to others for a number of reasons. Here’s why:

According to Direct Media Power complaints by consumers regarding Internet ads are increasing as users become more aware of their virtual surroundings. The primary issues are related to annoying pop ups, ads hiding the intended content, and ads that do not have an exit button. Aside from their visually intrusive nature, Internet users also cite automatic sound as a major turn off.

According to Direct Media Power complaints made to the FCC regarding foul language or overly suggested advertising should contain specific information. Without basic info, the FCC will be likely be unable to remove the offending material. According to Direct Media Power complaints should contain at minimum, the call sign of the station, the on-air personality name at the time of broadcast, and blunt details of the verbiage used as well as the perceived context.


Television, although it continues to be an integral part of American life, is not without its own nuances that make it an almost obsolete venue for advertising. According to Direct Media Power complaints regarding TV commercials indicate that advertisers are wasting dollars as the use of DVR devices increases. Many consumers elect to record their favorite shows and then skip past the ads, especially since the length and number of mid-show interruptions seems to increase each year.

According to Direct Media Power complaints located sporadically throughout the web have been posted by someone with a personal vendetta against the firm. In one case, a gentleman named Mr. Rister purchased $7,200 worth of advertising from Direct Media Power. Complaints regarding the number of calls he was able to close stemmed directly from his desire to grow his business too quickly. Mr. Rister claimed to be a Florida corporation but there were no records of his supposed firm. It appears he was a one person operation with the desire to expand overnight, and he posted Direct Media Power complaints online.


Also, according to Direct Media Power complaints about magazine advertising are about the same as they have always been. Readers can simply skip past the ad and ignore its message. Other issues with print advertisements are the fact that they must be created well ahead of publication. While the preparedness might seem appealing to some, the possibility that the information may become outdated is very real. As well, print ads are very inflexible since once the magazine or newspaper has gone to print, there is no way to correct any mistakes that might have been missed in the proofing stage.

By offering well written and concise marketing material, Direct Media Power says complaints about certain industries they serve can be avoided. As an example, firms that offer credit counseling can really benefit from simply stating that “not all callers will qualify for this program.” By asserting exclusions up front, clients are more aware that the service is not a magic fix it and forget it scheme, says Direct Media Power. Complaints about misleading advertising are a huge issue. What many companies don’t understand is that honest advertising is always the key to capturing – and keeping – a consistent stream of happy, paying clients.


Another popular form of advertising that receives a great deal of notice is large scale, outdoor advertisements, such as billboards, says Direct Media Power. Complaints about the costs are prominent, with some prime locations costing several thousand dollars per month. Additionally, billboard ads are a favorite target of street artists across the nation, causing the underlying message to disappear.

When Direct Media Power complaints are posted, who responds? Dean Tucci of Direct Media Power takes these types of issues very seriously and personally responds to any legitimate client with concerns. Three are, however, Direct Media Power complaints posted on certain “consumer review” websites that were posted by an individual – DMP states that these reports are invalid and unfair to the consumer review industry as a whole since they invalidate the sites’ purposes.


Overall, radio advertising is a solid and proven method. According to Direct Media Power complaints regarding radio ads are rare. Radio is a form of advertising that listeners tend to stay tuned into through the commercials. Also, there are fewer commercial breaks and often listeners wait to hear their favorite on-air personality. These DJs make great spokesmen and listeners feel a sense of trust for the products and services aired during their programs, which translates into qualified leads and a steady flow of new customers for the advertiser.

According to Direct Media Power complaints on the subject of licentious programs aired on the radio may be communicated to the Federal Communications Commission on Washington, DC. The firm reports that providing an expert from the unpleasant material can assist the FCC determine if any laws were violated during the broadcast. Direct Media Power says complaints are reviewed and investigated by qualified agents.

Direct Media Power Complaints about Traditional Advertising Agencies Resolved by Unique Benefits

Direct Media Power (DMP), a radio-only advertising firm located in Wood Dale, Illinois, says that traditional media providers typically only offer the services that benefit them the most. According to Direct Media Power complaints about ad agencies and brokerage firms cite high costs and even higher pressure sales tactics. With their offering of free services, DMP sets a new standard.

Direct Media Power doesn’t turn a profit unless a client’s ads create a response. Because of this, Direct Media Power complaints are a rare occasion. In the event of one or more Direct Media Power complaints, the group is swift to respond and provides a money back guarantee. But with over three million calls connected in the last five years, Direct Media Power clients have nothing to complain about!


At Direct Media Power complaints have helped mold a new kind of media provider. DMP offers free creative and production for clients in virtually any industry. As well, Direct Media Power promotes clients on thousands of radio networks across the nation, including small local stations to ensure the right demographic, every time. Direct Media Power also listens to their customers and helps determine the best market and format available for their products and/or services. All of this while maintaining professional and personal boundaries so often overlooked by sales reps.

Direct Media Power responds to complaints online. According to Direct Media Power, complaints reported on certain consumer websites offer little in the way of real information about the company. In fact, the one major issue circulating the Internet is a complete fabrication and was posted by one who wants to regain his or her initial investment, despite DMP providing a very profitable campaign. Readers should disregard these and contact DMP directly for more information.


So, what makes Direct Media Power different? It’s simple – the staff of willing and able reps who have an extra ace in their hand, so to speak. Direct Media Power operates on a pay-per-call lead generation payment plan. This sets them apart since their clients are guaranteed to only pay for the connected calls they receive as a direct result of their aired programming. Direct Media Power complaints only come when long time media buyers ask why DMP didn’t think of this sooner.

According to Direct Media Power complaints recorded online originate from one angry customer who is trying to take advantage of Direct Media Power’s money back guarantee. The former customer made statements that contradict the recorded facts. Client stated that they were not connected adequate calls. But Direct Media Power complaints from this individual are unsubstantiated and they have posted evidence online in rebuttal that clearly illustrate the agreed upon calls were transferred and answered.


According to Direct Media Power complaints regarding old-fashioned firms often cite a lack of experience from their sales reps. Direct Media Power proudly reports that they have generated over 3,000,000 leads in the last five years. That’s right, over half a million leads per year. That translates into major sales. And, unlike brokers, DMP doesn’t make a commission unless the client is successful – making for a highly motivated staff who know the industry and understand how to get results.

The Direct Media Power Complaints Department says they are slower than ever. According to Direct Media Power complaints are so few and far between that the department is being utilized for other business related purposes, like answering telephones and filing. The good news is that with so few complaints and so many new clients, the company may expand in the future.


In addition to high costs and inexperience, Direct Media Power says complaints about measurability have also helped them establish a system of call tracking that proves their creative marketing works. Direct Media Power provides a 1-800 number specific to each commercial with computerized tracking via a dedicated call center. And, since they only filter calls during client requested hours, there is never a chance of missing a qualified lead.

Direct Media Power on Complaints about radio stations: Like all forms of entertainment, radio isn’t always a perfect platform for everything. In fact, some things are plainly prohibited by law. According to Direct Media Power complaints regarding explicit and/or lewd commentary by on-air personalities may be reported to the offending radio station or to the Federal Communications Commission at

What we’re trying to do is communicate and connect with the women’s audience that is interested in prenatal care but also women’s health-related issues that our company is dedicated to serving. It’s a certain segment of the audience that we’re trying to connect with, right?

For us it was a natural fit and really plugs us in with that segment in a very personal way.

As a result of the WriteSteps segments [The Balancing Act] aired, I have been asked to provide instruction on Common Core writing to teachers in a continuing education program at a Chicago community college. We also had a 250% increase in our website traffic on the days the program aired.

Thanks to Molly’s referral, our Awareness Ambassador, Herman, has made a presentation at a private school in Florida. Lauren connected us to Vicki Davis ( and we’re about to feature her as a guest blogger on our website. We’ve had a great deal of new interest in the program, and we celebrate each of these opportunities to empower more teachers and reach more students with the incredible skills they can learn from the Common Core writing standards.

Suzanne Klein, Founder & CEO,

Susan, O2 Media is all about connecting and we are so pleased that we have helped you connect to so many opportunities as a result of appearing on The Balancing Act.

We were beyond thrilled with the short segment that highlighted one of our current customers, Beech Grove City Schools. The district was so excited to be a part of the program and to receive national recognition for their strides toward becoming a “Dream School.” We truly appreciate the time that was taken to have the video crew sent out to Indiana for the shoot. Valentina was amazing to work with and showed a genuine interest in what we are doing. She even took some time to speak to the school’s media class when the teacher brought them in to see what was going on. It was great to hear such positive feedback about the CurriculumLoft solution from our customer and we can’t wait to put together additional pieces with the footage her team was able to capture.

Dottie Coven and Alicia Peters

O2 Media thanks you for the opportunity to have been a part of this journey with you. Valentina is also grateful to have been able to share her passion with the eager young minds of Beech Grove City Schools. We look forward to working with you again.

From my initial dealings with The Balancing Act staff, my experiences were positive and pleasant. The entire process (from paperwork through the actual taping) was handled professionally and courteously, and each step leading up to the taping was thoroughly explained to me.

The day of the taping was great. I was greeted by Christine Flint, taken to make-up, the green room, etc. I was interviewed by Danielle Knox who covered the main points of my book and was friendly and easy to chat with. After the taping, Steve walked me around the studio and introduced me to Brenda Sultan and Steve Zucker, who talked with me about possible PR tactics to help with the selling of my novel, A Passion for Prying. Only days after the taping, I received my Tune In Promo video and verification of the air date. I have already posted the promo to my author website.

Nancy Mangano, Author, A Passion for Prying

 Nancy, you are such a talented woman and we are so glad to have been able to showcase this exceptional work.

DR Marketing Group on Lifetime with Cyberweb Solutions

The following segment aired on DR Marketing’s Incredible Discoveries. Joining DR Marketing Group was Cyberweb Solutions to discuss online auctioning.


DR Marketing Group: Take control of your financial destiny today. You can turn your auction hobby into an auction business with the Auction Genius Bootstrap CD. This simple, easy to follow business solution will improve your on-line auction business by giving you structured step-by-step lessons that will increase your revenue and put you on the road to financial freedom.

Cyberweb: E-Bay is the most popular auction website in America and the Auction Genius Bootstrap system teaches you how to make E-Bay and other auction websites work for you.

DR Marketing Group: We are going to take an inside look on how to build an auction business rather than an auction hobby with the Auction Genius Bootstrap system.

Cyberweb: Did you know that about half of one percent of seller’s on E-Bay actually succeed and the rest fail? Many people are looking for a how-to-get-rich-quick scheme and try their luck on E-Bay and other auction websites.

DR Marketing Group: But you don’t have to gamble on this hobby; you can turn it into an actual business and be successful!

Cyberweb: You may already know, bootstrapping is a business term that means to start a business with little or no capital, and that is exactly what the Auction Genius Bootstrap system shows you how to do.

DR Marketing Group: You don’t have to have a lot of money to be successful at on-line auction trading sites like E-Bay. Most on-line auctions are free to join, and like with any business, you just need a plan. The Auction Genius Bootstrap system gives you a step-by-step plan and more.

Cyberweb: The Auction Genius Bootstrap CD is a four step system for creating an E-Bay business instead of an E-Bay hobby.

DR Marketing Group: How does your system work?

Cyberweb: This complete training CD gives you simple step-by-step repeatable tools that allow you to use the same steps ever time you want to action a different product. With its easy to use format, you can stop and start the lessons on your own schedule.

DR Marketing Group: The Auction Genius Bootstrap system is a completely unique way of doing business. With the very structured lesson plan, you’ll know exactly what to do each step of the way.

Cyberweb: You’ll learn how to choose products for your profitable auction business, how to know in advance if your merchandize will sell, how to list your products, and how to eliminate mistakes, plus so much more.

DR Marketing Group: Cyberweb Solutions, the makers of the Auction Genius training collection, has been involved and established with the internet business for decades. Sydney Johnston, the founder of this incredible training tool, is going to tell us more about it. What can you tell us about your system?

Cyberweb: The best thing that I can tell you is that if you follow the four steps, you will always know exactly what to do.

DR Marketing Group: What if something goes wrong?

Cyberweb: If you occasionally find something that doesn’t work well, you know that you’ve messed up on one of the four steps. So you just need to go back and check where you went wrong.

DR Marketing Group: Why do a lot of people not succeed in online auctioning?

Cyberweb: A lot of people don’t succeed because they just get out there and don’t know what they’re doing. Some just won’t be bothered to educate themselves.

DR Marketing Group: If only they took the time to learn your four steps.

Cyberweb: Many will just go to E-Bay, which is the worst place to learn because they have their own agenda. Their agenda is to get you to spend as much money as you can, and second is to be totally dependent on E-Bay.

DR Marketing Group: I understand that agenda, naturally. But it’s not the same as yours or mine. It is great how you can make money by listing products.

Cyberweb: It’s not in our best interest to just follow the E-Bay line, because you’ll end up having a job with E-Bay. You will be an E-Bay employee. By not doing that is where your money is going to be made.

DR Marketing Group is an industry leader in direct response television production, focusing on branded entertainment. As a full-service turnkey marketing agency, DR Marketing Group has a diverse range of capabilities that allow the company to proactively respond to the ever-changing demands of a competitive global marketplace.

Designing Spaces on Lifetime with Kanwa Surfaces

The following segment aired on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was Vince Albachiaro to discuss Kanwa Surfaces.

Designing Spaces: Next up on “Designing Spaces:” counter tops.  Now, if you like the look of marble but maybe it’s a bit out of your price range, we’ve got a great alternative for you! We went to Sanford, Florida to get the story.

Fasculo: Whether a new home or a kitchen or bathroom remodeling project, your choice for counter tops and wash basins is important to both the style and function.  With a natural appearance of stone becoming increasing popular, more counter tops are taking on the granite look.  With the beauty of granite come certain limitations.  Designers and manufactures have been developing new materials that capture that beauty of polished stone without the downside.  I’m here with Vince Albachiaro from Designs and Solid Surface, a Florida authorized pre-owned fabricator.  And, Vince, we need not look far around this kitchen to see what jumps out at us.

Albachiaro: We have a beautiful countertop here, don’t we?

Fasculo: We really, really do.  And I think most people who are watching at home would think that this is some sort of stone or quartz, but in fact it’s not!

Albachiaro: No, this is premier solid surfacing from Kanwa Surfaces.

Fasculo: Very nice.

Albachiaro: Yes, it’s a solid surface—the premier solid surface.  So it’s totally seamless, it is environmentally friendly, it’s durable, it’s stain, chemical-resistant, and resistant to heat also.

Fasculo: Wow!  You know, I find it unique that you said it’s environmentally friendly.  How do you make a countertop environmentally friendly?

Albachiaro: Well, we’re very concerned about the environment.  And that’s why we use 22% recycled materials in the beautiful countertop that we have here.

Fasculo: That is something we all need to concern ourselves with.

Albachiaro: Absolutely.

Fasculo: Also, I mean, when I look at this I think what it might cost for this to be a stone.  In fact, it’s seamless; it would be ten times what you would pay for this.

Albachiaro: Yes.  Solid surfacing allows you to have a seamless appearance in a continuous running surface, where you can have coal back-splashes, intricate sinks, and you can use it in many different areas.  Let’s talk about some of the different colors and applications that we have.  It comes in twelve beautiful colors.  This one, Tumo, is our color that we’re using here in the kitchen.  And again, because it’s a solid surface, it’s easy to clean and easy to maintain.

Fasculo (Designing Spaces): You know what?  I love some of the names of these.  I see Rhythmic Shine, and Orange Moon, Leche, Tiara, all across the board.  So literally, something for every kitchen!

Albachiaro: Absolutely.  Also, it’s great for use in bathrooms.  It has an NSF 51 Certification for food service applications.

Designing Spaces: And I also understand it’s very easy to clean.  Can you go ahead and give me a demonstration?

Albachiaro: It is really simple.  It’s simple soap and water—just a wiping on the surface and a wiping off.  Because it’s nonporous, nothing penetrates it.  Where, with natural stones and granites and quartzes, any of those products—they can absorb water.  And that’s where mold and mildew grows.  And that’s what you can’t get with the solid surfaces.

Designing Spaces: Especially great for us who have little kids.

Albachiaro: Absolutely.

Designing Spaces: Now, I also understand that there is a quality about Breon that most people probably wouldn’t understand.  Could you describe that to me?

Albachiaro: Well, they say this material actually admits far more infrared rays, which is supposed to have a soothing and calming effect on the people in the kitchen.

Designing Spaces: This is a good thing, especially around Thanksgiving so I can cook that turkey and be calm throughout the entire ordeal.

Albachiaro: That’s what they say. I prefer a glass of wine.  But that is what they say.

Designing Spaces: Well, that sounds great!  I’m calm already. Vince, thank you so much for inviting me into this lovely kitchen.  This Henwa Surfaces Breon line is fantastic.

Albachiaro: Thank you very much, Brian.

Designing Spaces: Feeling good in the kitchen, I’m Brian Fasculo!

The Balancing Act on Lifetime with Jamie Lee Curtis

The following segment aired on “The Balancing Act” on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was Jamie Lee Curtis to discuss Activia Yogurt.

The Balancing Act: Well, I have to tell you, I love our next guest for a lot of reasons.  She is an international film star with countless hit movies under her belt and the daughter of legendary Hollywood actors, Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis.  But millions of people like me are just so inspired by popular Hollywood icon, Jamie Lee Curtis, because she has continued to evolve.  Jamie Lee Curtis joins us this morning to talk healthy tips for busy moms on the go.  Good morning, so good to see you again, Jamie Lee.

Curtis: I love your show, what you offer me and all the people that I know, all the women I know who need it, the tipping scale of our lives and you’re kind of keeping us going.  I love you guys.

The Balancing Act: Well, I have to tell you, we love you right back, my dear. Like I said, it really is true for a number of reasons, Jamie Lee, because you know, you’re very busy in Hollywood, you’ve written nine children’s books, which my kids love, by the way, you’re a mom of two yourself, you’re a spokesperson, how do you balance it all?

Curtis: Well, you’ve said key words. You said the word “evolve” and to me life is nothing but evolution, I mean literally evolution and in our own human lives, our own time, evolving as women, spiritually, emotionally, creatively and physically, and with your physical evolution, is learning about our bodies, diet, exercise.  Obviously all women are trying to figure out that balance, of how much exercise, how much food, how do I balance my diet?  And the new thing that people talk about with me obviously, because I’m here on behalf of Activia, is digestive health.  And, you know, this is not something I ever thought I’d talk about in my life, when I was first talked to by Activia to be their spokesperson, to talk about digestive health and the benefits of probiotics.  I never expected what the response has been, and the response has been thank you.  I am stopped all over the world by people who say thank you for a product that helps them, and that’s as simple as it is.  Activia offers you something and they now have Greek yogurt and French yogurt and a parfait crunch, because I’m a granola, I like the crunch.

The Balancing Act: Me too, I love it.

Curtis: Right, so but they now have three different styles.  They have the kind of creamy French one, they have the more—you know everybody loves Greek yogurt now—so there’s a Greek yogurt style Activia, all with the same benefits and ultimately, I think the combination of a good spiritual health, good mental health, creative health, physical health, digestive health, is the balancing act of our lives and I’m just happy to represent something that actually encourages one aspect to keep you in balance.

The Balancing Act: Well, I have to tell you, you’re one of those people that I know for me and I’m sure millions of people out there feel the very same way, because the thing is, when I see you on TV, I’m like, I want to be her friend, I like her, she’s the real deal.  Why do you think people feel that connection with you?

Curtis: Well, I hope it’s because I tell the truth and that I’m not interested in the subterfuge and the smoke and mirrors of life.  More magazine where I took off my clothes and said, “look, this is what I look like” was my way of saying I’m just like you, I want to relate to you, I want to hear about parenting tips because I’ve got tantruming children, I’ve had children in my face screaming at me, I’ve had marital conflict,  I’ve had parental conflict, I’m human, and I think that digestive health is human and there’s something about the fact that I’m not afraid to talk about it and the fact that I’ve talked about it publicly.  People genuinely want to share their story with me, and think that’s, you know, we just want to relate to each other ultimately.  At the end of the day I think I’ve been able to do that to a degree because I’ve tried to tell the truth.

The Balancing Act: You know what and I think that’s why people believe you when you talk about the topic of digestive health, because it’s something that you’ve become quite well known for and a bit of an expert on.  What do you recommend to others when it comes to their diets?

Curtis: Well, I’m not an expert. I would say look in the mirror, I would say remember that your children are watching every move you make, every bite you put in your mouth—your children are watching you.  We are all trying to balance, obviously, the motto could be eat less, move more—that’s my self-help book I’ll never have to write, that’s the title of it, eat less, move more.  And in the eating less, make sure that you include some sort of probiotic, a lot of water, you know, fruits and vegetables, etc, etc, and avoid white starchy, sugary foods and exercise and keep good mental health, good spiritual health and, what would we call it, the partying health.  Be very mindful about your partying health because it has huge effect on your life.

The Balancing Act: It absolutely does, you’re absolutely right on that one.

Curtis: Go on.

The Balancing Act: No, we appreciate you, you go on.

Curtis: No, you’re going to send me away?

The Balancing Act: No, no, no, they told me seven minutes.  I’m just trying to stick to my timeline but I really could talk to you all morning long.

Curtis: Oh, I like “The Balancing Act,” it’s all I do all day.

The Balancing Act: Well, I have to tell you, we love you, too.  Thank you so much and where can we go for more information on digestive health?

Curtis: Obviously, for digestive health,, they have all the information, has book information and, you know, I’m sure will offer you.  I don’t even think there is a site, wouldn’t be great.

The Balancing Act: I think you better grab that url, my dear.

Curtis: Something tells somebody already did.  Anyway, you guys do a great job, people love you, keep doing your good work.

The Balancing Act: Well, thank you so much and you too.  I can’t wait to talk to you again.

Curtis: I’m sure will and then maybe next year and the next book.

The Balancing Act: Well, sounds good, thank you again so much.

Curtis: Peace and love.

The Balancing Act: Cannot wait to see you again, bye, bye.

Incredible Discoveries on Lifetime with Iampur

The following segment aired on Incredible Discoveries on Lifetime Television. Joining Incredible Discoveries was Phil Hudson of lampur to discuss Iampur Relief

Incredible Discoveries on Lifetime Television Guest: Phil Hudson

Incredible Discoveries proudly introduces Phil Hudson, an award winning, compounding pharmacist and product co-creator from the company, Iampur.

Incredible Discoveries: Phil, thanks for being here and bringing along this wonderful product; it’s fabulous.

Hudson: Thank you so much for having me. At Iampur, we’re very excited about the invention of “Iampur-relief”.  The beauty of Iampur-relief is that you can use it externally anywhere that you have pain. Now, that might be only your hands or your wrists after a game of golf.  It could be your back, neck, legs, anywhere that you feel external pain or soreness. You can use Iampur-relief with the exception, of course, on your eyes or your mouth.

Incredible Discoveries:  The coverage is incredible, you don’t need a lot; just a little dab will do you.

Hudson: That’s right; it’s very concentrated. And what you’re going to notice right away is that it is a cream, it’s not a gel or an ointment. We’ve combined the cosmetic feel of a cream with the therapy of a pain rub.  And that means this isn’t going to stain your clothes or anything that you touch.

Incredible Discoveries: I know there are some ointments that get very greasy and messy, but this is soft and smooth; and I’ll tell you something, it smells pretty good.

Hudson: Yes, absolutely.  Iampur-Relief, being based on natural ingredients – contains menthol, camphor and wintergreen. They’re not only pain blockers, but they’re also aromatherapy. These ingredients are rapidly absorbed into the skin and act as a local block to help relieve the pain in the muscle or the joint. We’ve also added in a blend of omega oils, rich in essential
fatty-acids.  These oils actually decrease inflammation and also act as food for the skin.

Incredible Discoveries: Food for the skin – I like the way that sounds.

Hudson: That’s right! Also we have MSM, glucosamine and sea buckthorn extract.  These, all together, relieve joint swelling and pain through a natural, anti-inflammatory reaction.

Incredible Discoveries: So, the bottom line is that all of these ingredients assist each other in helping to do the same thing; that’s to relieve joint pain and swelling, and make you feel better.

Hudson: Exactly! And that is encompassed in the all-in-one, and I mean one, revolutionary formulation.

Incredible Discoveries: So, you’ve taken all of the best ingredients to relieve joint pain, swelling, achiness, and put it in this one cream, so no other products are needed.

Hudson: That’s right. Our main goal is to eliminate or reduce oral medications, because sometimes they can have very harmful side effects.

Incredible Discoveries: Iampur-Relief gets directly to the source of the problem. And I know there are people sitting at home saying: “I’ve tried aspirin, and ibuprofen, and everything my doctor prescribes, but nothing cures my pain.”  Well, this is it; this is the product right here.

O2 Media’s the Balancing Act on Lifetime with Chef Don McMillian

The following segment aired on O2 Media’s The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was Chef Don McMillian to talk about a healthy cooking with Green Mountain Gringo Salsa.

O2 Media: We love salsa.  I know a lot of you our there consider yourself to be connoisseurs when it comes to the texture, the flavor, and, of course, the spiciness and freshness of it.  We have one of those connoisseurs with us today, Chef Don McMillian from the Stocked Pot Cooking School, to show us what good salsa is really made of and some rocking recipes you can make with it. So, I read some disturbing news the other day that salsa can have a lot of preservatives in it.  Can you tell us about this?

Don: Many salsas have a large amount of preservatives in them.  But our Green Mountain Gringo Salsa has none.  It’s so fresh, and you can actually see the tomatoes, the onions, the jalapeños, the tomatillos.  It’s all in there.

O2 Media: Chef Don, you can really see the difference.  It seems like a pretty healthy snack.

Don: It’s a wonderful, healthy snack.  But just read the label.  I mean, that tells the story, “No preservatives, fat free, low salt, gluten free, no allergens.” And you know what?  It tastes good.  It’s won multiple awards for taste.  In fact, Women’s Day and Vegetarian Times said it’s the best-tasting salsa.

O2 Media: Well, my husband loves salsa.  And you’ve made some incredible recipes using salsas in great ways that we can incorporate it in our meals.

Don: I sure did.  These recipes are so easy.  We just seasoned some chicken breasts, broiled them for just a little bit, placed them with our Green Mountain Gringo Salsa, tossed it up, plated it on our Green Mountain Gringo Tortilla Strips, added a little bit of avocado, some cheese – it’s done.

O2 Media: My husband really likes the really spicy salsa.  But I’m a little bit more of a mild girl, I admit it.  Do you have different flavors?

Don: We have something for everybody.  Check this out – we have roasted chili pepper, roasted garlic.  Everyone loves garlic.  Mild, medium, and for your husband, hot, yes.  One of my favorite recipes is Green Mountain Gringo rice.  It’s so easy.  A jar of Green Mountain Gringo Salsa, a cup of rice, a little bit of chicken stock – it’s done.

O2 Media: That’s it?  Great for working women that are on the go all the time.

Don: Another recipe is to take our Green Mountain Gringo Strips, roll them in a little plastic bag with a rolling pin, put a little bit of olive oil on some salmon, season it up with the Green Mountain Gringo Strips, put it on a plank, 350 degrees in the oven, and our sauce is the Green Mountain Gringo Salsa. Plus, it’s only 10 calories per serving.

O2 Media: Only 10 calories? I love that. It’s kind of like a new spin because a lot of people use bread crumbs, but I’m sold on the tortilla strips. Where can I find these Green Mountain Gringo products?

Don: You can find them at your local supermarket in either one of three sections – the natural-food section, the Hispanic section, or the salty snack section.  It’s really worth looking for.

Interview with Joe Aldeguer at the Los Angeles Premiere of “Nobody, Nobody But Juan”

Interviewer: Hey what’s up guys? In case you guys didn’t know, this film has people working from the back, and part of the cast, all in one. Great movie. I actually have one of the co-executive producers with Nobody, Nobody But Juan. I have to ask, how is it working with the comedy king?

Joe Aldeguer: You know, initially you’re definitely intimidated. It’s Dolphy—the king of comedy.  From the moment he says “hello” to you—he’s Dolphy. He treats you just like you’re one of his family. He’s absolutely unbelievably humble. That was really a surreal event. But immediately the surrealness just goes away.

Interviewer: Cool. You know what? I forgot to ask a lot of the people that I interviewed—. Give me a few names of the people in the cast.

Joe Aldeguer: Well, there is of course Eric Quizon who plays his son and my brother in the movie. He’s also the director of the film. There’s G. Toengi. There’s Pokwang. There’s Willie Revillame. He does a special appearance and a guest on there. There’s Heart Evangelista. There’s of course Eddie Garcia, Gloria Romero. The cast is a long cast.

Interviewer: It sounds like a star-studded cast.

Joe Aldeguer: Yeah. There’s also Epi Quizon, and also Vandolph.

Interviewer: So you have, like, the Quizon is president of the movie. I have to ask, what is the fondest moment you have with making the movie?

Joe Aldeguer: Well, the fondness is obviously, you know, coming from the United States—this was my first project in the Philippines. The vastness of the movie. There’s a lot of moving parts in the film—a lot of film crew, there’s truck loads, and the entourage that comes with the Dolphy name.

Interviewer: Would you say it’s like culture shock of having films independently made here to films being made over there?

Joe Aldeguer:Well, yes, because there are so many more people involved there because, of course, you know, it’s easier to make a movie in the Philippines but it’s more fun.  Being Filipino-American you feel home right away. It was my first time in the Philippines as an adult. But as soon as you walked off the plane you feel like you were home. You know what I’m talking about?

Interviewer: Cool. I know with the scripts and whatnot is it exactly what you guys envisioned it out to be?

Joe Aldeguer: Reading the script it comes out so differently than what you actually see in the film. There’s a lot that goes into the film. The scenes are definitely a lot more vivid than real life, of course. And also the script changes a lot. Of course working with Dolphy who is the king of impromptu –he absolutely ad libs everything. But he ad libs it to make more of it, to involve more people, to have more fun with the film.

Interviewer: I hear he makes everybody so comfortable on the set trying to work with him. So everybody is not nervous around him.

Joe Aldeguer: Not at all. Again, it’s a big family affair. Really the whole cast becomes Dolphy’s family—the whole thing becomes like a big extended Dolphy family.

Interviewer: It sounds really great. You guys make sure to check out Nobody, Nobody But Juan. Let’s go ahead and invite our viewers out there.

Joe Aldeguer: Well, real quickly. This is going to be the first Filipino film that is going to hit AMC Theaters or mainstream theaters in the United States. The first film. And who better to represent our culture or our films than Dolphy, Dolphy himself. Sixty-five years is the anniversary this year. In the L.A. area it’s going to be in Covina and also Long Beach. AMC. And that’s February 26 through March 4.  For more information go to for other cities. It will be playing nationwide in different selected cities.

Interviewer: And this will be in AMC theaters?

Joe Vincent Aldeguer: AMC theaters—we are so excited to work with them. Not only, if it does well, which we think it will, it gets our foot in the door. Most Filipinos, as we get our foot in the door, we work very hard. We think it could be a step to bigger, bigger films in the future.

Interviewer: Great! You guys heard it straight from one of the producers of the movie and a part of the cast. Come by your nearest AMC theaters. It’s going to be out in Covina, Long Beach. So check it out. Nobody, Nobody but Juan. And the website again?

Joe Vincent Aldeguer:

Interviewer: Alright guys. That’s it for now. Thanks.
