Recorded live at MMPR in Hamilton, Ontario on 7/8/2017

Oliver Rockside joins Jasen at MMPR in Hamilton, Ontario for our first episode in front of an audience!

This week's selections:

Jason answers Dave's question "Do you like the songs that you guys do?"

For me, the answer is absolutely. There is always something to pull out and laugh at - something in the backstory or a cheesy video or a crazy lyric. We do try to seek out the humor. However, the music that came out between 1975 and 1987 is the music that I find myself going back to over and over. I was handed a radio when I was pretty young and our house was always filled with music. A lot of the songs, such as Christopher Cross singing the song from the movie "Arthur" that we discussed in episode 48, bring back specific happy memories from that time. Yacht rock or soft rock from all those years ago (and it shocks me to think of how much time has passed some times!) has and will always have a special place for me. This is definitely the music that I turn up when I hear it and I have owned quite a lot of it on various formats from vinyl to MP3 for a long time. Most of my picks here are still my favorite songs although I appreciate and enjoy music across all genres, especially jazz.

5/29/2017

Jasen brings us the melodious sounds of "Deep Inside My Heart" while Jason unrolls a Tums as he stares at his empty Big Mac box and says "Look What You've Done to Me" on an all new episode of the podcast that will never body slam a reporter, at least as long as there are witnesses present.

Who'll be the fool tonight? Probably Jason, as usual! Then Jasen calls Dominos and says, "I'd really love to see you tonight, if you are covered in pepperoni and extra cheese."

3/27/2017

Jasen tries to figure out what that smell is and Jason does his best to coerce a confession out of a serial killer in the latest episode of the podcast that tastes like the school glue you ate in second grade.

3/20/2017

We go to the Nineties this week so Jason discusses all of his angsty Nineties regrets in detail while Jasen spent most of the decade hanging out with one Stupid Girl after another on this exciting episode of the podcast that tastes like a flat can of New Coke (aka Coke II).

It was too early to stay on the yacht, silly people. We're back on the sofa with two songs sure to make you A) puke B) dance C) head to the fridge for some string cheese. It's up to you.

Jasen time travels to 2018 and blames it on Devo when he yells (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction into the drive-thru speaker at McDonald's and Jason is living the Wild Wild Life of middle age with Talking Heads.

In his podcast Are 'Friends' Electric?, official Friend of the Podcast (FOTP) Oliver Rockside talks about Devo in episode one and Talking Heads in episode 5.

We return to yacht rock with special guest Anthony Marco stepping in for Jason this week!

Anthony pulls Whenever I Call You "Friend" by Kenny Loggins and Stevie Nicks out of the choppy waters and Jasen gets pinched by an angry hermit crab humming "Guilty" by Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb.

We welcome special guest Heavy D this week as we take on two songs that are covers AND have a country in common. We love themes, don't we?
