On the third day of the 12 Days of Christmas Six-Packs, my true love gave to me…
Today friends of the show Julian Gill from KISSFaq and Bakko from Cobras & Fire are rejoining Eric to have some holiday fun, to share some classic holiday songs and the stories behind them, to fight with family and puke on neighbors down at the pub in true holiday tradition, to share personal holiday memories, and to discuss some meaningful charities that could use some love this holiday season.
Despite the over-commercialization we’re all inundated with, we focus on that special thing when it comes to family and friends and the real reasons behind the season. So throw on your holiday Santa hats and join us by the warm glow of the jukebox for some holiday cheer.
On this Six-Pack episode, Bakko of the Cobras & Fire podcast and friend of the show/singer for Ratt tribute Ratt & Roll Dan Parsels join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to assemble a six pack of gems from Ratt. We each bring two of our favorite songs from this classic and somewhat under-appreciated hard rock band. From the early days to the newest record, we cover a lot of ground in our picks, we also delve into some of the deep meanings behind Stephen Pearcy’s lyrics, the teenage fantasies inspired by their Invasion of Your Privacy album cover, and much more. What’s the connection between Ratt and Tori Amos?!? So throw on some of your best Milton Berle drag, tie a few tattered rags around your thighs, tease your hair and enjoy!
