Comedian Courtney MaGinnis (Caroline’s, College Humor, NPR) joins us on the show to talk about drunken family vacations, designing underwear for teens, and the Otis Redding song “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay.” Hilarity ensues as we get to know our wonderful guest and, wouldn’t you know it, there’s even some arm wrestling. Plus! Singer, songwriter, banjo player, and excellent human, Anielle Reid, takes the stage to cover Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness” and to play a couple of her own wonderful songs. You really can’t go wrong with this episode, folks! Don’t forget to subscribe, rate, and review!
Actor, writer, and comedian Matt Rogers (Pop Roulette, MTV’s Decoded, UCBT) stops by to talk with us about Pete Townshend’s song “Let My Love Open The Door.” We discuss VH1’s Divas Live, Jimmy Buffet, musical sketch comedy, and so much more. Singer-songwriter Katie Buchanan also joins us to cover “Let My Love Open The Door” and play some of her own music.
Writer and comedian Nicole Silverberg (Reductress, GQ, UCBT) and singer-songwriter Kaylyn Marie join us on this episode to celebrate the one-year anniversary of our live show. Nicole brings with her the somber tune “Shadow Song” by The Mountain Goats and we talk to her about the place music has occupied in her life. To close the show, Kaylyn Marie covers the song and plays an original of her own.
This episode features Will Stephen (SNL) and we discussed The Cure’s – Pictures of You, waterfalls of chimes and all! It’s a fun story of why the song stuck with him, AIM profiles, seeing The Cure live, and going to shows alone.
Trevor Bachman was our musical guest and he played a beautiful cover of the song.
Anna Drezen (SNL, Reductress, How May We Hate You?) stopped by to talk about Dave Matthews Band – American Baby. What followed was an enjoyable episode filled with stories of summer romance, mic drops, and lots of goofs.
Our musical guest this month was Jessy Tomsko. Check out her site for more of her music and tour dates!
Christian Finnegan (Are We There Yet?, Chapelle’s Show, Best Week Ever) joined us for a special holiday-esque episode of Repeater! Musical guests Connor Ratliff and Mikey Erg covered Elvis Costello – All Grown Up and some secular holiday tunes.
It just so happens that all three of our guests are HUGE Elvis Costello fans! Christian includes Elvis Costello in his 50 Plus artists (Artists that he loves at least 50 of their songs) and considers this to be one of ‘his’ songs.
We talk about Elvis Costello, high school hair metal bands, where creativity comes from, and Kid Rock.
Bowen Yang (Live On Broadgay, Lake Homo High, Broad City, Pop Roulette) joins us to talk about Beyoncé’s “Schoolin’ Life”. It’s an incredible conversation about changing your mind, big life decisions, and doing things that makes you happy (and the Goofy Movie). Keith Rubin (Singer/Songwriter) came by to play the cover and one of his own.
Bowen is a fricken delight! Follow him on twitter!
This is for them bitter somethings
Stop living in regret, baby, it’s not over yet
Ivan Anderson joined us to talk about Imagine a Jump (John Lennon / Van Halen mashup) Ivan had a lot of thoughts on this mashup and we talk about everything from Jamiroquai’s hats to social media overload.
Nore Davis (Comedian, “Home Game” available on iTunes & Spotify) came by to talk to us about DMX – Intro, from It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot.
Rap duo Sharkside performed a few songs!
Nore was running AND we forgot to hit record! (we’ve all been there!) This episode picks up during a conversation with our musical guests Sharkside about West Side Story, which is where they got their name! They also unsurprisingly had a ton of thoughts on Hamilton.
Enjoy and reach out to us on twitter or facebook!
Our next show is Tuesday, October 11th at 7:30pm at QED in Astoria Queens
This one certainly was surprising. We had Annalise Domenighini come in a few months ago and she chose Wheatus’ “Teenage Dirtbag” as her song. Turns out Twitter is excellent and we managed to get Wheatus’ main man, Brendan B. Brown, come in to talk to us about Steve Winwood’s “Valerie.”
