On this Six-Pack episode, friend of the show Missy O’Neal and Lee McCormack of the Tramps Like Us Podcast (who has his guitar at the ready!) join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the work of the incomparable Cyndi Lauper.

Of course we have a couple of hits in here, but we cover a lot of ground – we talk about Cyndi’s style, her place in music, the affects of her early publicity dalliances in wrestling, her versatility, her longevity, her stagecraft, her authenticity as an artist and so much more.

On this Six-Pack episode, Lee McCormack of the Tramps Like Us Podcast and BJ Kramp of the Rock And/Or Roll podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the work of master hit-writer Desmond Child. If you don’t know Desmond by name, you definitely know his work on huge hits by Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Ricky Martin, Joan Jett, Cher, Alice Cooper, KISS, Scorpions, Billy Squier, and dozens more. He started in the 70s with a disco-rock fusion group called Rouge before connecting with Paul Stanley to write I Was Made For Lovin’ You, which launched him as one of the most sought-after songwriters in the 80s and beyond. During his career, he’s been on all sides of the mic and the board, and we touch on all of it as we dig into a Six-Pack of this great Songwriting Hall of Famer!
So take a break from workin’ on the docks, cruise into a bar on the shore, live la vida loca and check out this Six-Pack of Desmond Child!
