Three years since first joining up on the first episode of ESSENTIAL COMPILATIONS, Lee McCormack is back to join Craig for some drinks and a track by track breakdown of both Breakin’ soundtrack albums and films!
Adam was as prolific and creative as they come – he worked in all aspects of music as a singer, a songwriter, a producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He worked in film, in television, and on stage – perhaps best known from his various bands Ivy, Fountains of Wayne, and the supergroup Tinted Windows. He contributed unforgettable music for films like That Thing You Do, Ice Age, Josie & The Pussycats, Something About Mary, and dozens others. He wrote for The Monkees. He even wrote the sweetest imaginable songs for Sesame Street. Tragically, he fell suddenly on April 1st as a result of Coronavirus complications. He was only 52. If ever there were a time to tell someone you love them, this is that time. Adam will be sorely missed. His music and spirit will resonate in our hearts and minds for years to come.
So please join us as shed some tears, share some fears, and celebrate the brilliance of Adam Schlesinger.

On the fourth day of the 12 Days of Christmas Six-Packs, my true love gave to me…
Today friends of the show BJ Kramp from Rock and/or Roll and Ben Montgomery from Records Revisited are rejoining Eric to have some holiday fun, to share some classic holiday songs and the stories behind them, to ponder how Christmasy War Pigs would sound with sleigh balls behind it, to highlight some family traditions, to share personal childhood holiday memories courtesy of the Rankin & Bass specials, and to discuss some meaningful charities that could use some love this holiday season.
So throw on your holiday Santa hats and join us by the warm glow of the jukebox for some holiday cheer.
Ian Zapczynski, Sean Zloch and Jim Carter join Craig for a seriously geeky vinyl discussion for Record Store Day. That controversial day for record collectors is discussed, along with childhood memories of records, cleaning, cataloguing, label designs, bootlegs, holy grails and a lot more.
On this Six-Pack episode, Matt Porter from The KISS Room and BJ Kramp of the Rock And/Or Roll podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to take a look at the work and career of Britny Fox. We’re breaking all the rules, spraying up our hair, throwing on some velvet overcoats, some purple spandex, throwing some spin-kicks, and digging into the late 80s metal scene of Philly. Matt shares memories of the early days seeming them live and some info about what Dean is up to these days, we get into the lineup changes, we get into the obvious Cinderella comparisons, and we definitely get into some of their classic work – hard pop-rock at it’s finest. Matt even shares a very rare track from a cassette in his personal collection as his final pick – worth hanging around for!
So hitch upon a star, dream on, bite down hard, and join us as we have some fun with a Six-Pack of Britny Fox!
