Pandemic Ed. 003 – Ali Gordon talks Elaine Stritch & Sondheim

From the depths of Pandemic 2020, the Repeater fellas sit down with Ali Gordon (UCB, SECOND BEST: A D&D Adventure) to talk about Elaine Stritch's iconic performance of "I'm Still Here" from Stephen Sondheim's 80th Birthday Concert. With a background in musical theater, Ali educates the boys on several touchstones of Broadway, including the lasting appeal of Sondheim. They also talk about Judy Kuhn's performance of "Vanilla Ice Cream" from She Loves Me and Michael Jeter's performance of "Let's Raise A Glass" from Grand Hotel, which are similarly delightful. Ali doubts her taste in music, but you will learn she has excellent taste, especially if you also happen to enjoy Phish. If you love musical theater or live performance in general, you will deeply relate to this conversation.

Pandemic Ed. 002- Brady O’Callahan não fala Português

Brady O’Callahan is back! Brady joined us to talk about comfort music, relaxation routines, and a lot about Brazil. Staying inside has been rough on us all so we talk a little about routines like exercise, coffee, and enjoying our record collections.

Brady’s first comfort song is Azymuth - Vôo Sobre o Horizonte, a stringed, synth-filled romantic montage of a song. He tells us about how he discovered this song and album at a small hole-in-the-wall record store in Rio, Brazil. We get into foreign language music, the instrumental feeling you get from it, and how it changes when you start picking up some words.

Brady has also been listening to Burl Ives - Lavender Blue. It’s a sweet, calming song that shows strength through its simplicity. And, honestly, we’re happy that it’s back to retake “Dilly Dilly” from those clout-chasing fools at Budweiser trying to get Old Spice Weird!

Then there's a bit of saudade for Brazil - Both Brady and Pat visited Traço de União in Pinheiros, São Paulo for feijoada and some music from Bloco Pagu! Small world!

Pandemic Ed. 001

Well, there's not much more to do during this pandemic than stay inside, listen to music, and record podcasts about it. Pat and Evan catch up on what they've been doing during the pandemic so far and what life has been like since the last season of Repeater wrapped. Join them for tales of couple-isolation, trips to Brazil, and how to lean into Spotify's algorithm. Subscribe for more eps during this time of downtime.

To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it?
