The Popdose Podcast: Episode 19

Mothers. Where would we be without them? I mean, yeah, there’s the whole “birth” thing. But that’s not what I’m talking about. When I say “we,” I’m talking about “the podcast schmucks.” Our mothers have given us ample material ...

The Popdose Podcast: Episode 17

Hey, we’re back after only a month off. This podcasting thing could become a habit. But it’s a little bit of a different show this time. Jeff and I spend a good chunk of the show interviewing Gorman Bechard, the writer/director/producer ...

Friday Night Videos!: Christmas Eve Edition

CHART ATTACK!: 10/11/80

Hi everyone! It’s Friday and it’s time to look back at another Billboard Top 10 from — holy crap, this is from 29 years ago. Anybody else feel really old? Thankfully, I think this is a pretty good week ...

CHART ATTACK!: 8/28/82

Howdy, everybody! Hope you’re all enjoying the last of your summer days, while I sit indoors and listen to ten artists who are likely never be found on the Top 10 — hell, probably the Top 40 — ever again. Let’s ...

Bootleg City: Spoon, 11/8/07
