TIM REID, the Emmy-nominated actor, director and producer, has been a mainstay in the entertainment industry for the last three decades.
In "America's Radio Station," Reid claims that CBS was reluctant to approve a scene with a fl man punching a white man, and that he found an acceptable compromise by having Andy throw a punch at the same time as Venus.
However, in the same book, a CBS operative (who read the scripts before they were passed on to the top) claims that the script always specified that Venus and Andy would do the punching together, and that if any change was made to the script it must have been self-censorship, rather than censorship by CBS.

 Tim Reid: Any Given Day - PopMatters Music Review
Tim Reid is an Australian singer-songwriter making a bit of a name for himself in his native land.
Reid excels at the sort of tunes that are perfect for summer sunsets or walks in the park, especially on the adorable "Air with Words", a number performed on piano that recalls the late Elliott Smith and his pragmatic lullabies and touches on "dizzying heights forging a future on false sentiments".
Reid probably gets sick to death of the comparisons to Finn and his style, but listening thus far, it's extremely difficult to think of anyone that comes even remotely close.
