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!
Jesse Roth is in the studio to talk about “Supercut” by Lorde. According to Jesse, Melodrama is the album of her life. While Jesse’s favorite song on the album changes all of the time, Supercut is the perfect cinematic soundtrack to walking or riding the subway. We’re pretty sure Supercut was made for Jesse.

On this episode, we have comedian and actor CARLY ANN FILBIN to talk with us about Hanson’s smash hit “Mmmbop.” If you’ve never met anyone with an undying love for the band Hanson, strap in.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR!!! We continue our annual tradition of LOVE SONGS ONLY for the Valentine’s Day edition of the live show and we invite SEVEN wonderful friends to join us for the occasion.
Jacob Sharp (Mipso) returns to the show and joins us in the studio! Jacob talks about Phil Cook’s “Great Tide,” a song that reminds him of friendships and touring, plus, it features killer instrumentation and guitar tone. We hear how Cook and other Wisconsin musicians migrated to the North Carolina Triangle region over a decade […]
The hilarious and sharp-witted Sarah Pappalardo (co-founder, co-editor of Reductress) joins us on this LIVE episode of the show to talk about St. Vincent’s song “Cruel.”
The ball of energy known as Amanda Giobbi (UCB) is on the show to talk about Sufjan Stevens’ epic song “Impossible Soul.” Clocking in at just over 25 minutes, “Impossible Soul” takes the listener on a deliberately minimal and melancholy ride.
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!
