Episode 156: The Story of Bad Larry, Part Two

It's the return of the Larry! This week, part two of the two-part interview with two "handsome studs" (their words, not ours) from Bad Larry. Chuck and Brad welcome Nick and Walt back to the program (or rather continue with them from last week). After some quick plugs for upcoming gigs, the interview resumes, and we get more old-school Bad Larry/Senior Discount/Providence Music Scene stories and insanity!

Episode 155: The Story of Bad Larry, Part One

A double interview this week! In fact, the double interview was so big it has to be split into two parts! That's pretty much four interviews for the price of none! As Chuck says - "Whoa mama!" This week, Chuck and Brad welcome Nick and Walt from local band Bad Larry into the studio/Chuck's kitchen. After some quick plugs for upcoming gigs, the four scoundrels wax nostalgic about the coming-up days of Bad Larry. Hear about musical influences of the band, learn about Cranston high school band rivalries, the infamous fistfight as VBW House (Was Chuck's head pushed through a window screen? Spoiler alert: Yes.), and other ridiculous stories from the guests (and the hosts). Part two up next week!

Episode 154: The Story of Dan Martin

Another big interview episode! This week the guyzos (part guy, part bozo) meet with local guyzo Dan Martin. After some quick updates concerning projects the three scoundrels are working on, Chuck offers a few movie driplets. News about the Sinister Six movie, the new Truman Show, uh, show, and some shifts in the world of late night television. Chuck then talks about the death of beloved comics character Archie and the exhumation (possibly) of a landfill's worth of ET cartridges. Our three compatriots then chat about the brand new movie "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", and what they thought of it.
The interview itself then begins with Dan's childhood. Hear his unflinching take (well, Brad flinched through most of it) on how his upbringing affected his sense of humor and comedy. What were the pivotal moments that led to him taking on stand-up as an art form, and why does he enjoy it so much? What did Mick Foley tell him about titties? It's a refreshingly clear look at Dan's devotion to art and comedy.

Episode 153: The Story of Macksoud and Soundoff

It's our second "big interview" podcast, as Chuck and Brad delve deep into the twisted(?) mind of Eric Macksoud, lead singer of local band Soundoff. Before we get to all that, though, we get updates on Soundoff's upcoming show, a Brad performance update, and some news from Senior Discount courtesy of Chuck. The boys then wax ecstatic about the possibilities of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer, then talk about an April Fool's Day prank perpetrated ON Chuck, that affected him extremely emotionally.
The interview itself starts with a lot of background on Macksoud's...uh...background in music. What songs/instruments motifs influenced him? How did that lead to him forming a band? Hear about the lows and highs of his journey through the Rhode Island music scene with refreshing candor and honesty! And also pretty much every band name he's ever encountered!
