Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, Joe Royland of Sit & Spin with Joe, and Eric Miller of Pods & Sods are back with the latest volume in the Soundtrack Six-Pack series. Why would Dan Aykroyd with a bad wig, a fake mechanical hand, and a put-upon accent ever presume to dance in front of James Brown?? Why wouldn’t Gabe Kaplan be the ideal choice for a basketball coaching job? Why wouldn’t a NASCAR version of Top Gun work if Tom Cruise was cast?? How does Bobcat Goldthwait dressed as a rampaging Godzilla NOT win an Academy Award?!? Well, it was the 80s and not everything was as cool as a competitive arm-wrestling film starring Sylvester Stallone, let’s be real. We get into all of that and more.

On this Six-Pack episode, Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, Joe Royland of Sit & Spin with Joe, and Eric Miller of Pods & Sods celebrate the life and work of Ric Ocasek. Ric’s career as a songwriter goes back to the late 60s, his relationship with Benjamin Orr started in 1967 and the two stuck together through the 70s in various configurations. But it wasn’t until the two found themselves in Boston and connected with Elliot Easton, Greg Hawkes, and David Robinson that The Cars were truly born. They came out strong with what many consider to be the greatest debut album ever. A series of multi-platinum albums and a slew of hits followed until they kinda broke up in the mid-to-late 80s. Ric continued for the following decades as a beloved solo artist and highly successful and coveted producer. His unique style as a songwriter and singer coupled with his image as the coolest guy in any room have made him a true rock and roll icon and hero to many.
Ric passed away earlier this week while recovering from surgery and so we wanted to pay tribute.
So sit back, brush your rock and roll hair, and join us as we honor one of the greats, Mr Ric Ocasek.
On this Six-Pack episode, Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, Joe Royland of Sit & Spin with Joe, and Eric Miller of Pods & Sods celebrate the life and work of Eddie Money. Eddie Money broke onto the scene in the late 70s, managed by the great Bill Graham. He scored a series of unforgettable hits that have become part of the American rock and roll soundtrack shared by us all – Shakin’,Baby Hold On, Two Tickets to Paradise, Think I’m In Love, Take Me Home Tonight, Walk on Water, I Wanna Go Back, among others. He had a reality show, toured the world, did tons of work for charities large and small, overcame personal demons… and all with a charm and smile that was unique, infectious, and undeniable.
Eddie was taken by cancer earlier this week and so we wanted to pay tribute.
So pack you bags, grab your tickets to paradise, and join us as we honor the Money-Man himself – Eddie Money.
