Let’s Quit Talking About You Know Who

March 23rd, 2016

By Jim Shearer

Whenever I start daydreaming in front of my computer screen I’ll occasionally click on a link from John Oliver, Samantha Bee, or Stephen Colbert. If you read between the lines—or in this case, the one-liners—you can actually learn a lot about the candidates running for president, like…Donald Trump.

Lyle Preslar & Jim Shearer (talk about music)

February 11th, 2016


After maybe a good three years of light, but constant nudging, I got Lyle Preslar, longtime music industry vet and guitarist of one of my all-time favorite punk bands, Minor Threat, to sit down and record a radio show with me (you can call it a "podcast" if it makes you feel more comfortable). You'll quickly find out that Lyle is as intelligent as he is funny.

The premise is very simple: I wanted to do a music version of Mike and Mike, covering the current happenings in major league pop, rock, indie, and hip-hop. In a world of media overload, I think there's still a void for a program like this.

Here's our first attempt. If you like it, let me know, and maybe I'll be able to nudge Lyle again.

BTW: There's no show title or official logo, because, dang, this is just an exhibition game. We didn't even bother to put in our mouth pieces.
