Actor, improviser, director, and developer Johnathan Ross joins us in the studio this week to discuss UGK’s “Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You)” featuring OutKast. John describes listening to this song in his white Volvo S70 as he drove back and forth from his academically advanced high school in Georgia.

Goodness gracious! We’re back this Sunday, 5/6, at 8:30 PM, with a brand new LIVE show featuring comedic madman Branson Reese (Cartoon Network, his own damn comics) and musician Matt Costabile (The Planes, Rockets On Wire, Endl’ng). We’ll be talking with Branson about the Jawbreaker song “Want” and hearing music from Matt, which two things that excite us very much. In advance of the show, let’s get to know our guests a little better!

Legendary and delightful funnyman Kyle Gordon (My Dark Little Corner, Magnet Theater) was our guest to talk about “Wondering Where The Lions Are” by Bruce Cockburn. Kyle tells us how he came across this song and how much it means to him. It’s pretty clear that this is Kyle’s song considering how much he listens to it and it’s a tune he relies on to calm him down.

Strap in! Tom Sanchez (Magnet Theater) is on the show to ruin his brand! A big pop music fan, Tom talks to us about “Flagpole Sitta'” by Harvey Danger, a song he first heard back in high school and didn’t think too much about. It wasn’t until college, after moving all the way from Arizona to Connecticut, that the song took on greater meaning.

Writer and actor Elena Skopetos (Songonauts, Magnet Theater) is in the studio to talk with Evan and Pat about Robyn’s masterpiece “Dancing On My Own.” This powerhouse song has it all – a little sad, but a lot of fun – and inspires everyone to get out on the floor and dance.

Megan Gray (Artistic Director at Magnet Theater) joins us in the studio to talk about “The Freshmen” by The Verve Pipe. The song came to Megan when her boyfriend Louis gave her a mixtape just before she embarked on a foreign exchange trip way back during her freshman year of high school. You know what that means – we GOTTA talk about mixtapes!

Comedian and musician Kevin Cobbs joins us to talk about “She Bangs The Drums” by The Stone Roses. Hear all about Kevin’s cool parents, how he got into The Stone Roses, and his love of nudie suits. It’s one hell of an episode!

Pat May joins us to talk about “Bramble Blast / Stickerbrush Symphony” from the video game Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. That’s right, another Pat! Two Pats! Innovation! Pat May loves video games more than anything and truly loves the music of video games more than most things.
