Bill Swartz plays along with us again this week, as Murdock, Hunter & Alice chat with Bob Robertson, our gardening expert Frisco and enjoy one of the "Hideous Consequences" from our Battle of the Sexes.
Kind of a sports theme going, with Ray Allen of the Seattle Supersonics playing the Murdock, Hunter & Alice Battle of the Sexes, Sports Shorts with Thick Scully and a return to the days of self-help cassettes.
A call to the Michael Jackson hotline, an MH&A "Get You Ready For Summer" special, a flashback to one of my all-time favorite events, the "Keeney to Keeney 92.5-foot Fun Run" and Wayne Brady and Lisa Ling help up mess with Alice.
Another weirdo salad, including a return to a Seattle earthquake, an interview with Doris Roberts, a chat with J.A. Jance, a funny movie trailer, and a bit I did with Alice Porter, John Nixon, Jim Dai and Bryon Mengle in our demo, “The Guy Panel.”
Got a strange hodge-podge of bits for you this time, including Marty Rowe's 30th birthday celebration during my KQOT days, an odd song, a KQOT window sticker promotion, A KOMO Country jingle, and the Burns & Hunter Show that never was....including an appearance of the late Debbie Deutsch. Enjoy!
I forgot how fun these were. Thanks to Scott Burns putting on the Spandex (and he'll do that by request), Richard Simmons introduces me in this episode that takes us up to Everett for the time we threw out the ball at the Everett Giants (now the AquaSox) game.
Wow, this one has all kinds of radio gems on it. The time at KLSY when we had Bryon the Producer try to stick a Zucchini on a famous porch; there's an appearance from Fran Baskerville, the singing psychic and from my Yakima radio days, a PSA for Discojerkannouncerous.
This could be called the "What could have been" podcast, as we give you a sneak listen into a pilot for a "Hunter & Alice Show" demo, we hear about Alice's Thanksgiving weekend and Sarah McLachlan stops by our studio
Oh, my. Lots of little nuggets here. My Mariners song, "Faith", from that magical year of 1995, Scott Burns gives us his Tom Brokenjaw, Bill Swartz gives us a two-fer: Frisco the gardening expert and Bob, the Cougar broadcaster. Oh, there's more, but start listening....
I call this a radio salad, because there's a little of everything here. A Murdco commercial I put together during my early days at KLSY, but the coolest thing contained in this episode: When I first started doing radio at KQOT in Yakima, I worked with Skip Tucker...who had gotten to know Ichabod Crane, who graciously agreed to critique one of my airchecks. He did, by playing it, pausing it and then jumping into it. Forever grateful.
You'll hear an ancient clip from my KQOT days in Yakima, and I walk down KLSY Memory Lane with Amy Yamada. I am SO proud of what she has accomplished and done in her lifetime. Just one of the great people I had the chance to work with at 92.5-KLSY. If you want to see what she did with her life, visit www.amyyamada.com
This one's really fun. You'll hear "Nick and Sam's Wedding List Draft"...a bit I put together with Scott Burns about my step-son and his wife having to choose who got to go to their wedding.....and, a classic radio pass-around: a recording of the late comedy genius Jonathon Winters, going all improve in a radio station recording studio. What a mind!
Another all-over-the-board adventure including some of my more forgettable moments when I cut my radio teeth at KCMU, there's an episode of Roman Theater in there (one of my personal favorites) and the lovely and talented Scott Burns shows off his Tom Brokaw impersonation.
Episode 6 of my Wacky Week Podcast includes "The Big Seattle Goat Show", memories of Larry Nelson as we traced the history of the Stanford fight song and "Werewolves of Enron". Remember, more Wacky stuff at www.wackyweek.com!
Some more wacky madness with KLSY's Alice Porter explaining why she spends new $20 bills first, plus a couple of songs, including "Wishing Well" by Ronald Reagan and my Soundies-nominated song, "I guess I farted."
