Hello folks! We’re about half way through the year, so we thought we’d share a few more songs that we’re excited about! Illuminati Hotties – (You’re Better) Than Ever The first time I heard this song I knew it’d be an incredible song for the summer. It’s a surprisingly relatable song with lyrics like “All […]
We’re joined on this episode by Bridgette Rizkalla (UCB) to discuss the Louis Armstrong rendition of “La Vie en rose.” Bridgette tells us about wanting emotional substance in songs and how, no matter the genre or era, those are the songs that resonate with her. We talk about listening to Arab music with her parents, whether or not we want kids, and the vulnerability of dancing.
One of our favorite songwriters, Lauren Denitzio of the band Worriers, joins us to talk about one of her most beloved songs, “Still Into You” by Paramore. Listen in for a great conversation on what makes a great song, why whining about production quality is stupid, and how awesome Philly’s music scene is right now. Plus, two songs from Lauren!
Lauren Ashley Smith, head writer on The Rundown with Robin Thede, joins us on this LIVE edition of the show to talk about “Ain’t Nobody” by Rufus & Chaka Khan. We are also joined by one of our favorite musical guests, Mikki Hommel, who not only covers “Ain’t Nobody” beautifully, but she also debuts a brand-new original track and improvises a song based on suggestions from the audience. WOW.
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.
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.
It’s part 2 of 2 in the “Pat in Los Angeles” series! We have Landon Charles Hughes (Comedian) on the show to talk about “Breathe Me” by Sia. This song connected with Landon in a significant way. The interview spans a wide variety of topics all with some pleasant birds chirping in the background and a dog on the couch.
