Episode 114 – Dave Kloc on Mitch Hedberg – Mitch All Together

DaveKlocThat album we’re holding is indeed not Mitch Hedberg’s “Mitch All Together.”  That’s because A) It wasn’t released on vinyl and B) the gentleman next to Jason, here, is Dave Kloc, the designer of this amazing album cover for Jonah Ray’s “Hello Mr. Magic Plane Person, Hello.”  Not only that, but Dave has designed every single poster for every single Meltdown show here in Los Angeles and, of course, on your TV screens.  We talk serious comedy addiction, art, and Mitch Hedberg this week.

Episode 112 – Peter Shickele – aka PDQ Bach

PDQ Crop 2Live via vocal telegraph this week is none other than Peter Shickele, aka P.D.Q. Bach, J.S. Bach’s only forgotten son.  We discuss his career, his invention of the hardart, and even go back to the early days of record collecting, where nabbing a bunch of singles was your only option.  It was an honor and an insane amount of fun to speak with him.

Episode 111 – Jeremy Carter on Bill Cosby – Himself

Jeremy CarterJeremy Carter is here to talk Cosby.  Not just Cosby, but Himself.  A seminal album, and one that has stuck with a number of a certain generation maybe more than his earlier work, wonderful as it is.  This is Bill Cosby’s dad “character,” which is a stretch as a term in this case, as refined as it ever got.  This is frustrated dad refusing to give up, but still accepting his fate.

Episode 109 – Paul Provenza on Robert Klein – Mind Over Matter

ProvenzaThe host of “The Green Room with Paul Provenza” and “Set List” here in LA, sits down with me to talk about Robert Klein.  Not only is this a slice of the 1970’s, it’s Klein’s progressive voice without entitlement, but with a heavy degree of acceptance that being progressive is just the way it is.  We also discuss Paul’s first time on stage – at a Robert Klein show.  That story is worth the whole hour.

Episode 108 – Andres du Bouchet on The SNL Cast Album

dubouchetAndrés du Bouchet is not only a hilarious stand up, but he writes for the funniest guy ever – Conan.  We talk about a number of albums this episode, but the big one is the SNL Cast Album.  Though I didn’t have it in hand the day of, the clips you’re hearing in this episode are from a vinyl rip.  Go check out his comedy, watch Conan, and definitely listen to this album.  I’ve put almost all of one sketch at the end, because its (for me) the greatest sketch on there, and one of my favorites of all time.
