We talk Daves rock poster gigs, Neil brings back the segment nobody wanted in ISO Drum Tracks, and we break down what Dave likes in humor.

Jonah still on tour, so we decided to mix it up a bit this week. If we can provide the headliner for the show, how about an extra sidekick? Fellow Emmy nominated editor/podcast host/great guy Chris McCaleb joins us on the couches this week. And Chris brought his own drops!

We talk Chris’ co-worker Mike Bearmantraut, how Chris started in the tv business, and we take half guesses at the isolated drum tracks that Neil found. Jonah sends in a piano jam from the road.

Welcome back to another episode of Jonah Raydio. While Jonah is out of town, frequent guest and Jonah Raydio illustration (check his work out every week on the Jonah Raydio Max Fun page) steps into the slot.

Jonah calls in from New Haven Ct having just kicked off his tour and gives us an update about the first days of tour. I apologize for his sound levels and then for bragging about how good it sounded. It didn’t.

We talk, knives, Vegas, Lyft driving and knives again. Find out why Neil says “fuck no, I’m a feature”. Dana catches us up on his trip to LA and we get a peek at whats coming down the pike as far as shirts. Its a real buddy jam, heavy on the jam

First podcast with Jonah on the road! We were full of piss and vinegar and then Neil took an nap and slept through the beginning of the show. But no matter as we had a great guest in the form of writer/producer Ben Acker. Ben wrote and produced the long running Thrilling Adventure Hour, several comics from your favorite major and minor presses and his newly launched webcomic Kid Midnight.

Ben brings some examples of his songwriting with his buddy Kate Micucci, some covers done by close friends of his and some originals from people we know well enough not to have them sue us.

We talk Ben and his time at a naming company, Skiffle music, Neils trip to interview David Byrne and more. All on this weeks Jonah-less Raydio.

Us3

L’Tovah Podcast, guys! Jonah got his voice back and was leaving for London later this afternoon, so we got one in while we were all there. It was a classic JRaydio hang. We did the new Music News (now without jokes!), had a jam session of SFX and music to open the show and Jonah talks about the other podcast he’s getting into.

We are going to be banking some episodes in the coming weeks for when Jonah goes on tour with MST3K, so if you got something you want us to hear, you want to yell at us or need that patented “Big Neil Energy” to push that creative project across the finish line, hit us up at names o’ the show at gmail dot com.

Also, that story about the Beatles having a knuckle shuffle group meeting came out after we recorded, so we don’t touch it.

May The Podcast Come Up and Meet You, everyone! We break our streak of having musicians on to discuss comedy by having a comic on to talk music. It’s Kurt Braunohler! And its a great one!

 

We start with Krishna temples, Edinburgh, and Kurts old video team that took him to the festival. But then Kurt brings us one of the most fun games we’ve played on the podcast. Ladies and gentlemen meet “Shame Face Shuffle”

 

Anybody can play. Pull out your Zune-type music player, put that batboy on Library>Shuffle and hit Next. Most embarrassing entry wins the round. Comedy album, first instance, round loss. Second comedy album, re-roll. Possible Shoot The moon situation with overall “coolest in every round” where ultimate winner can be named ultimate loser. Does that apply to Jonah in this game? Listen to find out…

 

Also a prize pack that Neil and Cash put together from things found inter trucks. Look for that prize package to cross over to Doug Loves Movies soon!

 

See Jonah and Kurt in Our Bits Could Be Your Night in Georgia or Kurt this Friday at the Irvine Improv

Hot podcast, coming through! Its chock full of Allison Crutchfield and Mike Krol, how ‘bout it now? Allison makes an announcement about the return of her band Swearin’ and Swearin’ and Mikes upcoming west coat tour. We talk album covers, Allison joining Mike on Merge records and Mikes roots as a graphic designer. 

 

We talk cool venues and what separates the wheat from the chaff, touring/venue/hospitality wise.  And Allison and Mike break down how they have a bit of jealousy about how the other goes about working. It really turns out well, by the end.

Aloha Podcast! Our guest this week is Rob Schrab, director, writer, co-creator of Channel 101 and author/artist/creator of Scud the Disposable Assassin as well as director of the new season of MST3K

 

It starts off great, then Neil gets over his skis with dropping his first contribution to the musical side with a song he got from Spencer on the Harmontown podcast. But then we dive into Robs origins in comedy and how MST3K ties into it. We talk Neils fascination with the stories of Motley Crue but not their music. Robs music video for Death Cab for Cutie song Crooked Teeth

 

We talk the best parts of what Channel 101 has brought to our lives and how the concept of getting paid in fun beats getting paid almost nothing (Shots fired sound at JGL and HitRECord). 

 

We also hearken back to Robs early days and talk his Dead Ale Wives D&D sketch that grew in the early days of the internet and his love for the VHS trading community

 

Then we take a deep dive into Scud, its origins as a comic, the way it helped break Robs career and eventually let to him abandoning the project pre finale, only to return to it years later to give the fans, and himself, the closure it and he needed. He announces a kickstarter to get Scud the color he’s always deserved.

Podhaüs begin. Ted Leo, from Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, joins the podcast this week. Ted tells us about his Thin Lizzy proselytizing, his times with his early band Chisel and one of his longest held musical regrets. He tells us about his major label meeting that almost talked him into it and we forget the name of the guy who wrote Waiting for Godot and the Mark Wahlberg movie with the intimate behavior on the rollercoaster. 

 

We also answer your twitter questions. Most of them were addressed to Ted. Also how the French-Dutch movie The Vanishing really screwed up Ted.

Rozwell Kid with Roger And Bob (Rode Out That Day) from Willow Creek

 

Next up is Bobcat Goldthwait from the Flying the Episode. He talks his time touring with “The Nirvanas”, his never launched two handed act with David Bowie, and jettisoning his old on stage character.

And finally, when we were putting this best of together, there was only one unanimous call from all of us. “The one where Ruby farted”. Ruby is Jonah and Deannas dog, who is old and has digestive trouble and was a frequent visitor when we did the sow from Jonah backyard shed. We play Sleeping Bag & Rozwell Kid- Miguel This episode features old friends Clint Trucks, Dave Kloc, Deanna Rooney, and Tony Thaxton. A great example of how this show started killing time and a 12 pack in Jonahs backyard.

Second Draft

 

So it all went wrong this time. Our guest, Rob Schrab  put in the wrong address to his GPS and ended up 40 miles away from the studio. We were backed up against our deadline date so we needed to record one to go up today. So we started recording without him, actually called him and did sort of an interview while he sat in traffic. Then Jonah hung up on him and Rob called back and threatened to cut all of Jonahs close ups when he directs MST3K. It was really funny and worked out well and with a great game in the second act of the show we were back on top of the world with forty minutes of a great podcast we had salvaged from the ashes.

 

Then the recorder failed.

 

So we made another one and thats what you’re getting. Rob wouldn’t pick jp when we called back. Neil cheated in the game by using all Jonahs successful answers from the first, now lost, round. We talked band feuds. It was a real experience.

Sorry so overmodulated. We tended to shout cause we were so excited! It didn’t sound any better live!

 

Warning, it turns out when you have an antagonistic podcast, you get a antagonistic audience.

 

John “Jughead” Pierson from SCREECHING WEASEL and EVEN IN BLACKOUTS got attacked by a wild boar. He gets into the yin/yang of Screeching Weasel, and what then yin gets up to when the yang isn’t around, his experiences with Green Day and Blink 182, and his theater gigs. A guy kept bringing Jonah PBRs. All Time Champion Guest Dave Lyons came thru and flew in to sing “Veronica Hates Me” with Jughead. Jughead also brought games and gift and we got into that. A few folks attempted “Slogans” with Jughead and Jonah finished it up with his own vocalizing on “Peter Brady”.

“He’s actually pretty tasty with what he does”- Mark Hoppus on Travis Barker

 

Max Fun Drive Part Two. We are joined by gentleman, scholar, and bass player from Jonah’s cover band Mark Hoppus! We talk his roots, how Blink-182 initially got signed from some subtle car stereo placement, and his long history of making references to “making maternal love”. It’s also the final week of Max Fun Drive, so our buddy Lindsey calls in and reminds us of about the true spirit of the season. We learn a lot about ourselves and each other.

 

And as a second reminder of the Max Fun Drive, almost all the music we play is from our performers on our super special music festival Max Fun Bonus episode. Sign up at MaxFun.Org/Donate to get it!

Ben's latest movie "NEWNESS" is also on Netflix. Also, one of Jonah's favorite flicks "Save The Date" (directed by Michael) is discussed. But it's not all movies and tv! We stroll down 90's music memory lane and talk about what Prarie Home Companion would be if David Lynch hosted it.  Also, there's an announcement right near the end. Which Jonah wasn't sure if he was allowed to say, but was drunk.

Hey everybody! This week we have a bit of a blend. We start off strong with guest Mad Magazine editor/@midnight staffer/musician Allie Goertz  trading stories and having a ball. Check out Allie's first issue on the masthead at Mad when it comes out March 28th. Then Jonah got sick. A little rumbly in the tummbly. Then he had to leave. Then micro manager Neil took over. Mahonaraydio ensues.
