Comedian Kevin Hogan from The Friesen Point podcast, shares music and stories from his days as a strip club pseudo-regular. We needed to have him on because one time he came in his pants twice in one visit to a nudie bar (a record as far as we know). The music can understandably be rough in this episode, but the stories are worth the price of admission.
It's the second live episode at saki records in Chicago and it's a doozy. The boys are joined by anti-bear Canadian musician Rod LaFleur. Then the band Blizzard Babies sit in for an interview and a few songs. Hear about the hot new RSD releases, and a new segment, "This Week in Horniness."
This is a real lazy one. Not in the sense that the material presented is lazy, but it just has a mellow vibe. If you're into "getting mellow" now would be a good time. Good talk about dreams, dream interpretation and a surprise guest drops by at the end. Warning: There's a weird mic issue on Nick's end. We're not geniuses, but it gets low every now and again. I think you'll just have to deal with it? Trust us, it's worth it.
Joe and Nick explore every crevasse of gayness with comedian Bill Cruz. Bill actually brings more factual information to that show than we've seen in years. You'll hear music about being gay, music by gay people, and music from gay icons. If you're luck, maybe some tunes that will turn you gay. Dive in.
In the first ever live episode of RPM at saki Nick and Joe are joined by 80s hardcore legend Tommy Crowbar, who explores his sensitive side. Also, from the popular show Shame That Tune, Brian Costello and Abraham Levitan hang out for an interview and we get into some cool band stories. Dig it.
One of our favorite comedians James Adomian stops in to discuss 70s rock music. We touch on some classics and explore conspiracies about how guitar solos are tied to the Vietnam conflict. James sheds some light on John Fogerty's speaking process and we talk about Occupy Wall Street somehow.
Nick and Joe (both unemployed) explore a topic they're well versed in, work. This episode takes the good along with the bad of employment and filters it through the voice of rock stars that don't remember what it's like to have a hard days work under their belts. Good jams on here from Devo, Replacements, Rapeman, and Johnny Cash.
Dan Friesen (host of Friesen Point, That's What They Want You To Think and Nicest Guys In Town overlord) joins us in the studio for an oral history of No Limit Records. We've talked about doing this episode for months now and the time has come. We focus our attention on Master P, Silkk The Shocker, C-Murder, Snoop Dogg's brief tenure and Dan's favorite Mr. Serv-on. Get 'bout it, 'bout it!
On this episode Joe and Nick put in their two cents on the almighty dollar. Topics include curse words on the radio, how money ruins everything and super women. Whether you live on a breadline or you're living high off the hog, join us as we laugh all the way to the bank.
