Lyle Preslar and Jim Shearer recap The Oscars, as well as breakdown the legal proceedings of Kesha vs. Dr. Luke. They also discuss Beyonce vs. Miami Police Union, M.I.A. vs. NFL, and Lil' Wayne vs. Birdman.
Lyle also talks about trying to sign Weezer back in the day and the chances of a second wave punk band ever making it into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
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.
The quickest sports podcast on the internet lays out the football menu for Thanksgiving, laughs at the mediocre Thursday Night & Monday Night games this season (as well as those hideous "color clash" uniforms), and worries about the new extra point rule as the playoffs approach.
This week Sean Conboy, former writer for Pittsburgh Magazine and producer for Players' Tribune chats about the newly tweaked Steelers, the rabbit hole known as Fantasy Football, which hometown team gets his priority these days, and why he's a fan of the seemingly unfair one-game Wildcard playoff in baseball...and he does it all in 10 minutes.
It's our Welcome Back to Fall episode with new music from Andy Mineo and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, a recap of Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour, and a whole bunch of good songs to listen to while jumping in a pile of leaves.
