On this Six-Pack episode Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, and Jeff Harris of Behind The Grooves rejoin Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to once again celebrate the work of Nile Rodgers. The scope of Nile’s work cannot be overstated – from Chic to the early days of rap music to all the MASSIVE pop hits of the 80s and 90s and even through his modern releases, both behind the board and on the stage, there is no one that compares to Nile Rodgers and his distinct, legendary Hitmaker guitar. We bring six fun picks covering just the tip of the iceberg of Nile’s work, share some laughs, quite a bit of trivia, discuss his cultural importance, and even get visited by a Shakespearean rendition of Nile’s Yum Yum.
So sit back, get freaky, get lucky, and enjoy some classic Nile Rodgers.

On this Six-Pack episode, Lee McCormack of the Tramps Like Us Podcast and BJ Kramp of the Rock And/Or Roll podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the work of master hit-writer Desmond Child. If you don’t know Desmond by name, you definitely know his work on huge hits by Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Ricky Martin, Joan Jett, Cher, Alice Cooper, KISS, Scorpions, Billy Squier, and dozens more. He started in the 70s with a disco-rock fusion group called Rouge before connecting with Paul Stanley to write I Was Made For Lovin’ You, which launched him as one of the most sought-after songwriters in the 80s and beyond. During his career, he’s been on all sides of the mic and the board, and we touch on all of it as we dig into a Six-Pack of this great Songwriting Hall of Famer!
