Tommy Johnagin, Conrad Denke, Seattle's Something in the Trees
Despite Washington State’s ranking as the state that is least sweariest, we’ve discovered the only way people pay attention to us is if we swear more. Darn it!
And it turns out we love Paul Allen for his looks, not his money.
Our favorite comedian Tommy Johnagin re-joins the podcast (when will he learn?) to celebrate his girlfriend’s 40th birthday today, or tomorrow or whenever her birthday is. She’s ancient.
A new show debuts on KSTW Channel 11 tomorrow night, and every Saturday night at 11PM, Band in Seattle. It puts a spotlight on Seattle’s endless lineup of talented bands (damn, why didn’t we come up with that idea?!). Conrad Denke, the creator of Band in Seattle joins us, as does one of the bands being showcased – Something in the Trees.
You can see Something in the Trees’ psychedlic set on Band in Seattle, January 18th or catch them live at the Blue Moon Tavern December 14, 2013.
There was a Second Shooter (and he stole our crappy headphones)
Thieves have broken into the Moldy Basement, but nothing will stop us from putting on a fab show!
Just because your turkey is twice the size it used to be, doesn’t mean you need to be an overconsumer. We’ve brought in Eco-Consumer Tom Watson and Joel Smith from Puget Sound Energy to give us eco-tips and environmentally-friendly products for the holidays. (We also solve JFKs murder, once-and-for all…)
We’re a pot-friendly potcast, and so when High Times names a group their Unsigned Band of the Month, we bring ‘em in! The band Science! joins us to play two guitar-pickin’ songs….with Justin Stang on vocals and Jim Elenteny with perfect picking….
Back Dec. 6th! Happy Turkey Day/Channukah
Calling the World and Radio Raheem
After a one week hiatus because of a sidetrip to the mean streets of Detroit, Marty is ready to save this blighted city. He has extra energy, because Seattle don’t need saving anymore!
Gay mayor, maybe a socialist City Council member, hot damn! This town is about as hip as they get. (Sorry Detroit, you’ll be back one day.) Add to that the effervescent energy of Seattle’s Radio Raheem, a band that is making it’s second appearance on the podcast in honor of it’s newly released CD “Raheem Rising.”
Radio Raheem’s CD Release Party is set for Saturday, November 16, 2013, at The White Rabbit. All attendees get a free copy of their new CD, and anyone who clicks HERE gets a free download of their electrifying tune “Calling the World.”
Everything is FREE! I think that’s due to socialism.
Conspiracy theories and making earth our bitch
No guests, no music, but a new sponsor – HELLO PUGET SOUND ENERGY! Consider it our attempts at conserving energy, but we go dark on the show today, discussing towns in Norway with no sunlight, and Marty’s whacko (or are they?) conspiracy theories.
This does not bode well for our guests in the future, because today’s show was a good one, if we do say so ourselves.
Mike Gastineau "The Gas Man" and Seeing Blind
Fresh back from the Hollywood Film Festival with stories to tell from the red carpet (it was a white carpet, but Michael spilled numerous glasses of wine on it). Tune in to find out more, for now suffice to say Michael is not Harvey Weinstein’s new BFF and Marty is off to direct Drugstore Cowboy 2.
Another lost icon of the radio era joins the Moldy Basement, although this guy quit on his own terms. Mike “The Gas Man” Gastineau swings in to plug his new book documenting the history of the Sounders FC franchise (Sounders FC: Authentic Masterpiece” – get it HERE). The story of decimated doves is worth the price of admission.
The band Seeing Blind caps the show with a rousing alterna-blues performance from their album “Let’s Paint Our Whole Room With It.” Turns out Marty has a safe, toxic-free paint obsession.
Elliott Gould and Denise Crosby
Trapper John, Rueben Tischkoff, Ross & Monica’s Dad on Friends – it’s hard to invite Elliott Gould into your basement and not feel like you’ve invited dozens of iconic film and tv characters in. From “Is Jon Voight scary?” to “Is Babs particularly protective of her nails?” no questions were off the table for the Oscar-nominated actor.
And no sooner was Mr. Gould out of the guest chair, then Denise Crosby took his place. An accomplished actress in her own right and Mr. Gould’s costar in the Showtime series Ray Donovan, Ms. Crosby told fun and fascinating stories about her role on Star Trek The Next Generation (Tasha Yar) and her relationship with her famous grandfather.
Seattle's hottest unsigned band Ecelctic Approach
Fresh from his tour of Twilight hotspots, Marty returns to the even moister-than-Forks basement to welcome Eclectic Approach whose front man was nearly felled by a horrible case of the Swine Flu. Suffice to say he survived and has a billboard at Northwest Hospital larger than Marty’s West Seattle Coins bus ad.
Also during our viewer mail segment we tackle the issue of GMO’s and Initiative 522. An articulate and fact-filled case is made, but not by either of our regular hosts.
See Eclectic Approach live at the Crocodile Cafe on October 25th.
Tommy Johnagin and Cracker Factory
Who better to address the podcast’s biggest complaint message ever in our 407 show history, than sweet, wiser-than-his-years comic Tommy Johnagin. The complaint is based on our analysis last week of the Amanda Knox retrial, and with the the aid of Google Voice transcription service, we get to the heart of the issues. Fixed it!
Johnagin also shares his unnatural joy of fatherhood. We share our unnatural fear – until you hear this story – of wasps. You’ll never look at soy sauce the same again.
Finally, we wrap up with some LSD-infused rock from the band Cracker Factory. They’ll be jammin’ to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds at the October 9th, John Lennon tribute benefit show at the Royal Room.
All you need to know about Obamacare and the new iPhone 5c
This has got to be the most intelligent, issue-filled program we’ve ever produced (admittedly, a low bar). And we’re thrilled to announce that our new podcast is made of revolutionary colored plastic! It’s all the rage.
Louis CK follow up with a hilarious comedy routine about our obsession with technology.
Marty explains Obamacare in language we can all understand – the language of a grumpy old guy. Michael has uncovered an attractive new scam that will allow him to utilize his fake landlord mustache.
Publishing scion Patrick Robinson
So much to talk about, and with our musical guest calling in sick with strep, we have all the time in the world. We have as much time as there are miles ahead of (and behind) the Voyager 1 Spacecraft.
Joining us for a print perspective on the future of media, is publisher and editor for the newly christened Westside Weekly (formerly the West Seattle Herald), Patrick Robinson – the youngest of four brothers, pertinent to a scientific study discussed on today’s show. As radio struggles to find its way – to say nothing of guys who were on the radio – newspaper may provide some insights (or inserts) for how to proceed.
Be sure and check out the Rite Aid insert in next week’s podcast.
