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!
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.
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!
