So what’s this Matt ‘N’ Jeff Radio Hour thing all about anyway? If you follow Jeff Giles (@jefito) and Matt Wardlaw (@mwardlaw, @addictedtovinyl) on Twitter, you’ll be somewhat familiar with the musical discussions that go back and forth in 140 character bursts (and fast food related pontification as well). While there is quite a bit of division between the two of us on various musical topics relating to singer/songwriters (Tommy Shaw) and bands (too many to speak of!), we have a good amount of common ground on quite a few things, including Bruce Hornsby.

With a new live album going on sale from Mr. Hornsby, Jeff suggested that we should record a podcast about it. So wait a second, you guys are okay with spending at least 35 minutes talking about Bruce Hornsby in public?  Hell yes.

Bride of the Noisemakers is on sale starting today at Amazon.com, where it will be available exclusively for the entire month of May. To celebrate, you can purchase the 27 track Amazon MP3 download featuring two exclusive bonus tracks (“Mandolin Rain” and “The Way It Is”) TODAY ONLY (Monday, 5/2) for $3.99, which is quite a deal for close to three hours of live recordings from Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers.

So is it worth the four bucks?  You bet it is and we have a few words on the subject. Read on and download the podcast below.  Enjoy (maybe) and we’ll be back in a couple of weeks with another episode!

In this episode, our illustrious hosts discuss — you guessed it — the holiday season, from gifts to music and everything in between. You’ll also find out exactly how Cabbage Patch Kids are born.

Show Notes

0:00 Intro, leading into a varied holiday discussion. We start by discussing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and Jason’s emotional attachment to the 3-D Santa Claus. We also discuss Jeff’s daughter and her newly-found Christmas spirit (much to Jeff’s dismay), Christmas in NYC, Yule a Go-Go, tonight’s Acoustic ’80s Christmas Show, Bruce Springsteen’s “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” and the In Harmony and In Harmony 2 albums, the Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York,” Jeff Vrabel’s hatred of “Wonderful Christmastime” and everything else except for Jimmy Buffett, Buffett’s Christmas album, Carly Simon’s Christmas album and the Pet Shop Boys’ Christmas album, Carly Simon’s new album and the unfortunate cover, unnecessary covers of “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” heckling a Five For Fighting concert, Wing’s Christmas album and last year’s Mellowmas finale, and the end of a very, very long sentence.
