On this Six-Pack episode, new friend of the show Jason Pawlak and Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the work of Survivor. The AOR, melodic rock band that scored a string of chart topping hits is so much more than Eye of The Tiger. And we get into some pretty deep cuts from both the Dave Bickler and Jimi Jamison eras of the band. Lots of facts, lots of laughs, check it out!
On this Six-Pack episode, Brad Page of the I’m In Love With That Song Podcast and Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the life and work of Neil Peart and Rush. The impact and breadth of Rush’s musical career is beyond measure, and Neil’s words particularly resonate in the hearts and minds of millions of fans around the world. Oh, plus he’s the Drum God-iest of Drum Gods – a unique talent that elevated what one could do behind the kit and beyond the light stage as a creative force. Who’s the greatest rock drummer ever? C’mon. We all know.
Rush is an eternal brotherhood. Three young to older men that lived a life of philosophical growth, musical exploration, joy, tragedy, and friendship on record and on stage – the real relation. We’re all blessed to have witnessed and have been inspired by it – now and forever. So, join us as we grieve the loss of Neil and praise the work of Rush.
Air drumming highly encouraged, in fact required.
“I don’t have faith in faith
I don’t believe in belief
You can call me faithless
You can call me faithless
I still cling to hope
And I believe in love
And that’s faith enough for me
And that’s faith enough for me”
On this Six-Pack episode, Alex Alt of the Sly Dog Music-Cast and Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle podcast rejoin Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to explore the music of Jethro Tull. From their original blues based configuration through their expansive 50 year career, Tull have been an ever-evolving but constantly interesting and unique artist. Ian and Martin and crew have delivered some great music – mixing Celtic flavors with progressive rock, literary lyrics with head-bobbing killer riffs, flights of fanciful flute and charm and intellect and humor and introspection, and so, soooo much more!
So sit back and discover or rediscover the prog-leaning brilliance of Jethro Tull.

I Can Dream About You is one of the greatest songs of all time, but there is so much more to Dan Hartman.
On this Six-Pack episode Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, and Jeff Harris of Behind The Grooves rejoin Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the fuller body of Dan Hartman’s work.

On this Six-Pack episode Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, and Jeff Harris of Behind The Grooves rejoin Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to once again 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.
