‘Good Luck Charlie’ Introduces Disney Channel’s First Same-Sex Couple
Hollywood Life - about 3 years
Watch ‘Good Luck Charlie’ make television history, introducing the network’s first lesbian couple. Some sitcoms go out with a whimper, but not Good Luck Charlie! On the Disney Channel comedy’s penultimate episode — the two-part series finale airs Feb. 16 — viewers were introduced to Susan and Cheryl, the first confirmed same-sex couple ever to appear on the kid-oriented network. “Taylor has two moms!” proclaimed Bob (Eric Allan Kramer), upon meeting the two women, to which sassy wife Amy (Leigh Allyn Baker) responded, “Wow! Nothing gets past you, Bob.” This is a huge move for Disney Channel, which has never featured an openly gay character, much less a same-sex couple. The icing on the cake for HollywoodLife.com was seeing Awkward star Desi Lydic as one of the moms!

Mike Ragogna: Wild & Free: A Conversation with A Rocket To The Moon's Nick Santino
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
A Conversation with A Rocket To The Moon's Nick Santino Mike Ragogna: Nick, before we get into your new album, Wild & Free, let me ask you how much did your first hit, "Like We Used To," from your debut album On Your Side change everything for you? Nick Santino: It was interesting because we were just a band that toured all the time off the same eight songs. Then, one summer, we just decided to take a song to radio because we saw that it was coming off a little better than the rest of our show. It was really good for us. You know, for a band of our size to turn on the radio station and hear our song was kind of cool. So, hopefully, we get to do that again sometime soon. I think it definitely helped reach out to that crowd of people who listen to the radio and helped them find us. MR: Did it change things up for the group overall? NS: Yeah, it definitely opened the door to being more of a radio band, I guess. We got to play a bunch of radio shows that we wou ...
