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. Plus we have a great listener pick from our buddy Alex Alt from the Sly-Dog Music Cast!
In Volume Eleven, we’re unpacking some classics from Honeymoon Suite, Peter Murphy, Pattie Brooks, David Coverdale, Billy Preston and Syreeta Wright, and Sammy Hagar.
On this Six-Pack episode, Paul Underwood of Glory Days Radio, Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, and Eric Miller of Pods & Sods are blasting some hits and some deep cuts from these undeniable jukebox heroes. From their 70s hard-rocking days to the 80s heyday of monstrous, chart-topping ballads, Foreigner has blazed a unique trail. Lou Gramm’s voice coupled with Mick Jones’ catchy riffs and guitar mastery were staples of rock radio – and still are to this day. As usual, we’ve got some interesting detours and deep cuts that you may have never heard. Fun to discover, always. But we’ve also got a hit or two, lots of laughs, and some terrible singing.
So sit back, let us show you what love is as we get hot blooded AND remain cold as ice with Foreigner!
On this Six-Pack episode Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, and Jeff Harris of Behind The Grooves join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to 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 Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, and Brian Linnen of The Permanent Record Podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to school him on the The Human League. And many fantasies were learned as Jon and Brian picked songs spanning the band’s career from the late 70s thru their latest release earlier this decade. We also get into the group’s history in the studio and on stage, what sets them apart, why you might consider diving deeper than the greatest hits, and are they the Robert Johnson of synth pop??
So sit back and feel or keep feeling the fascination that is The Human League.
On this Six-Pack episode, Paul Underwood of Glory Days Radio, Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, and Eric Miller of Pods & Sods take it on the run with a six pack of REO Speedwagon songs. From their 70s hard-rocking days to the 80s heyday of monstrous, chart-topping ballads, REO Speedwagon has blazed a unique trail. We heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from another that we can’t fight this feeling any longer when it comes to talking REO.
Disclaimer: There is a fair amount of ball-busting in this one. 😉
So sit back, put on your bedroom eyes, and discover or rediscover some rock and roll gems from REO Speedwagon!
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.
