Three of the Week 11/7

Three of the Week 11/7

Story Worthy is a great story telling show hosted by Christine Blackburn and Hannes Phinney. Each week they have a different guest and a different subjects. Stories about waiting tables, c*ck blocking, young love and barking dogs. first the hosts give their take on the subject. Then guest will do a story and then a quick interview. The shows are close to 40 minutes. They are a lot of fun. (Full disclosure, I was a guest. It was fun. They will be on “Proudly Resents”  soon.)

 

The Jerky Boys Show with Johnny Brennan. If we wait long enough everyone will have a podcast. Proof? JB of the Jerky Boys has a show that plays one bit and then he answers questions and gives background on some of the bits. I have a question, what happened to the other guy who was in the group? Why do you take all the credit? Also, as a fan of the Jerky Boys and a New York accent, how can I not listen every week?

 

Martini Shot– TV writer Rob Long does a weekly radio column on KCRW. He talks about Hollywood showbiz stuff and makes it universal. Interesting stuff. Each show is 4 minutes. You can listen to a munch of shows at one.

This Wednesday Nicko returns to “Proudly Resents” and we see who has the worst TV, America or Brittain.

 

 

 

Jimmy Pardo & “Kiss & the Phantom of the Park”


Never Not Funny’s Jimmy Pardo  resents”Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park.” Yes,  the band Kiss with make up and super powers. Yes, super powers. Watch them fight the evil Kiss created by a mad scientist who happens to work out of the local Six Flags.

1978 TV execs wanted to get that allusive Kiss Army audience. What do they want? The band Kiss, music, magic spells and roller coasters in the background. It’s more “Scooby Do” than “Hard Day’s Night. ” Can’t fail!

We also talk about Jimmy’s popular podcast “Never Not Funny,”   his love for Liza and we blow the lid off of Adam Spiegelman’s (Host “Proudly Resents”) great cleaning lady scandal.

Also: Nicko makes an uncomfortable appearance, we introduce new news site @extremelylocal, explore the seedy world of salad bars with  Luggage Tuesdays  and a plug for a great live show. Go see “Up Late With Adam Fisher” even if one of the writers owes me $100. Cough -Noah Kaufman- Cough.
