12 Days of Christmas Six-Packs, Day One
On the first day of the 12 Days of Christmas Six-Packs, my true love gave to me…
Kicking off this year’s holiday festivities are very special co-hosts Craig Smith and Megan Stemm-Wade. They’re joining Eric to have some holiday fun, to share some classic holiday songs and the stories behind them, to drink some egg nog, to reflect on why KISSmas has run it’s course (still available in the archive here), personal holiday memories, and to discuss some meaningful charities that could use some love this holiday season.
So throw on your holiday footy pajamas, break out the chocolate chip cookies, and join us by the warm glow of the fireplace for some holiday cheer.
Six-Pack of Debbie Gibson, Volume One
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.
Six-Pack of Paula Abdul, Volume One
On this Six-Pack episode, Craig Smith (“hey Craigy!”) stops by one of Eric’s solo sidecasts along with Richie Wagner of Audiobiography to crack open a Six Pack of Paula Abdul! Lots of laughs, detours, name-dropping friends from our podcast community, and flights of fancy that revisit the glory days of the early nineties in this one. Buckle up. We even manage to make it through six of Paula’s tastiest pop morsels like serious adults, seriously. This is gonna be a fun one whether you dig Paula or not. C’mon, who doesn’t wanna hear three grown, non-dancing dudes wax poetic on the technical prowess and captivating virtue of Paula’s dance abilities?
So sit back and discover or rediscover the pop tastiness of Paula Abdul.
