On this Six-Pack episode, Debbie Gibson International Fanclub (DGIF) member #5707 Craig Smith and friend of the show Andy Schaal join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to share a six pack of Debbie Gibson songs. We’re drawing smiley faces on our knees, wearing our Electric Youth perfume, and unpacking our Kaboodles. Sure. But more than that, we’re revisiting some of the greatest pop music of the 1980s. Debbie is often overlooked or marginalized as a songwriter, singer, arranger, and producer. So we highlight much of that side of her – more than the pop idol, we’re celebrating the music. But of course, there are some fun anecdotes about meeting and seeing Debbie perform along the way, some teenage boy memories, and some laughs.
So sit back and discover or rediscover the pop mastery of Debbie Gibson.
On this Six-Pack episode Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast and friend of all podcasts everywhere and future podcaster Andy Schaal join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to take an escapade into the music of Janet Jackson. Break out your key earrings, your 1814 badges, and your bellychains! We’re each bringing two picks from Janet’s career – some hits, some of her lesser known hits, and even a deep cut or two. Some detours into Lyle Lovett, Vanilla Ice, and of course lots of praise for Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. This is the test, no struggle no progress… we are part of a Rhythm Nation!
So sit back and discover or rediscover the pop dominance of Janet (Miss Jackson if you’re nasty).
