Valentine’s Day Spectacular! <3

We host a Valentine’s Day soirée with beautiful guests Caitlin Brodnick, Trumane Alston, Branson Reese, Christina Cola, and Juan Nicolón! That’s right, it’s our first-ever multi-guest episode and we ask each of them to talk about a love song *or* a song that relates to their love lives. We discuss such wonderful tracks as Joanna Newsome’s “Good Intentions Paving Company,” Ben E King’s “Stand By Me,” Macy Gray’s “I Try,” No Doubt’s “Ex-Girlfriend,” and The Punch Brother’s “Another New World.” We basically speed date our way through this lovely bunch of comedians and end up quite smitten by the end of it. PLUS! The sickest pop-punk and emo band in the tri-state area, MY DARK LITTLE CORNER, plays a set of their hilarious songs for everyone to enjoy.

Celine Dion “My Heart Will Go On” with Chris Duffy & Dear Georgiana

Comedian, podcast host, and radio personality, CHRIS DUFFY, joins us to talk about Celine Dion’s masterpiece “My Heart Will Go On.” We chat with Chris about out teen years, VH1 Divas Live!, and the incredible competition known as Eurovision. Somehow, Chris makes it through this entire episode without us making fun of his love the (quite possibly) the most overplayed love ballad of our adolescence. The incredible Dear Georgiana stops by to cover “My Heart Will Go On” and plays a fabulous original of her own.

The Cure “Pictures of You” with Will Stephen & Trevor Bachman

Trevor Bachman was our musical guest and he played a beautiful cover of the song.

Beyoncé “Schoolin’ Life” Bowen Yang & Keith Rubin

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.

This is for them bitter somethings
Stop living in regret, baby, it’s not over yet

Steve Winwood “Valerie” with Brendan B. Brown (Wheatus)

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.”

We talked to Aparna Nancherla (Late Night with Seth Meyers, Inside Amy Schumer, Whiplash at UCB) about Styx’s “Show Me The Way (Desert Storm Mix)” and got to discuss growing up outside of DC, making your own decisions about music, and of course, US military propaganda. Aparna is amazing and you should buy her new album “Just Putting It Out There.” She was also recently on Conan!
