We're Back!

We've been gone since April, but we're back. The milestone, Episode 50, was a great launch into our second act. We recorded in beautiful Elmwood Park, filled with old-timey cars, gay cruisers and, worst of all, golfers. Enjoy the nature soundtrack.

Video Killed The Radio Star

We were back streaming live again. It takes a bit to get everything working right, rebooting the computer so it doesn't shut off after 2 hours, swapping cables, etc.. We reveal that we're working on a merch store. Keep an eye out for it in the coming weeks!

3 Hit Combo

We're sorry to say that we must make a retraction. In the episode, Brandon suggested that our advertiser, Adam & Eve, carries bacon-flavored lube, but, alas, they do not. Sorry fans. The good news is that it's all over Amazon. Have fun with that!

Camera. Action.

Tony and I walked into Brandon's country trailer Tuesday not expecting to be on The Truman Show. Well, okay, it was different; we knew about it and no one was watching. By some miracle, modern internet connection speeds made it to the city limits giving us a lot more options for our show. We streamed and recorded the entire episode with a few hiccups, singing and dancing. This weeks title holds a special place in 76 Street history; Our avid listeners will immediately know the story.

Last recording before the Holiday

The weather this week has been far nicer than we should ever see around thanksgiving, but forecasts continue predict warmer-than-average temperatures here on 76th Street. We haven't had a colder-than-average month in almost 28 years which means Brandon and I have never experienced such a thing! We here are pretty confident that humans are at least contributing, if not causing, global climate change. I digress. My plans for the holiday involve trying to drag someone, anyone, to the zoo, but so far no luck despite the weather will be nicest of the week. I guess people prefer families over animals. Schmucks. May your holiday be filled with turkey.

Taking a trip through Hummel Park

Brandon mentioned possibly going to Hummle park for a Halloween episode a week or two in advance, but we thought nothing of it and heard nothing about it. The day arrives for recording our latest episode and we find out shortly beforehand that he has the entire process planned with perfect location and logistics. I buy us pizza from a favorite pizza joint in Irvington for our last supper that we eat at Brandon's house with a couple of beers before heading to our doom. We pack up a couple additional beers with the equipment and head out. Naturally, Brandon picks the creepiest area on the north side of the park to which a creepy dirt path connects and leads to someone's home. The next day Brandon went back to our temporary fortress to retrieve Tony's lost umbrella and finds changes to the area that can only be explained by someone spending the night there after we left. I get chills even thinking about it.

Jerrid on The Media Bytes Show

A few weeks ago, we were approached by The Media Bytes to talk about our show. After agreeing to join them on their show, they sent us a few questions they were itching to ask. After some deliberation, we decided to put me out there despite the potential for offensive disaster. After failing to convert timezones properly and not having quick access to our phone line, Bobby DeMuro finally got me on the line and we had a great talk about the show and the state of the art of podcasting. Things went swimmingly and I didn't make an ass of myself. I am pleased to tell you that The Media Bytes have posted the episode today! I had a really great time talking to Bobby and we wish him and his crew luck as they too navigate through podcasting.
