We did it! We went to the desert to the legendary Pappy and Harriets to see Swearin’ and Mike Krol. It was the gang joined by wife extrodinare Deanna Rooney and girlfriend par excellence April Flynn. Cocktail taste tests mean we can write off alcohol! Neil got a dollar shoved at his butt by some bullies. Jonah wore a cowboy hat that works really well on him.

May The Podcast Come Up and Meet You, everyone! We break our streak of having musicians on to discuss comedy by having a comic on to talk music. It’s Kurt Braunohler! And its a great one!
We start with Krishna temples, Edinburgh, and Kurts old video team that took him to the festival. But then Kurt brings us one of the most fun games we’ve played on the podcast. Ladies and gentlemen meet “Shame Face Shuffle”
Anybody can play. Pull out your Zune-type music player, put that batboy on Library>Shuffle and hit Next. Most embarrassing entry wins the round. Comedy album, first instance, round loss. Second comedy album, re-roll. Possible Shoot The moon situation with overall “coolest in every round” where ultimate winner can be named ultimate loser. Does that apply to Jonah in this game? Listen to find out…
Also a prize pack that Neil and Cash put together from things found inter trucks. Look for that prize package to cross over to Doug Loves Movies soon!

Allison Crutchfield and Mike Krol
Hot podcast, coming through! Its chock full of Allison Crutchfield and Mike Krol, how ‘bout it now? Allison makes an announcement about the return of her band Swearin’ and Swearin’ and Mikes upcoming west coat tour. We talk album covers, Allison joining Mike on Merge records and Mikes roots as a graphic designer.
We talk cool venues and what separates the wheat from the chaff, touring/venue/hospitality wise. And Allison and Mike break down how they have a bit of jealousy about how the other goes about working. It really turns out well, by the end.
But don’t take my word for it. Listen

It starts off great, then Neil gets over his skis with dropping his first contribution to the musical side with a song he got from Spencer on the Harmontown podcast. But then we dive into Robs origins in comedy and how MST3K ties into it. We talk Neils fascination with the stories of Motley Crue but not their music. Robs music video for Death Cab for Cutie song Crooked Teeth
We talk the best parts of what Channel 101 has brought to our lives and how the concept of getting paid in fun beats getting paid almost nothing (Shots fired sound at JGL and HitRECord).
We also hearken back to Robs early days and talk his Dead Ale Wives D&D sketch that grew in the early days of the internet and his love for the VHS trading community
Then we take a deep dive into Scud, its origins as a comic, the way it helped break Robs career and eventually let to him abandoning the project pre finale, only to return to it years later to give the fans, and himself, the closure it and he needed. He announces a kickstarter to get Scud the color he’s always deserved.

Podcast Brah! A meeting of the minds from the 50th state. Not only does our old buddy Zac Carper from FIDLAR stop by, but old co-host and brother Adam Rodriges sits in as well. If you love Hawaiian pidgin english, you will love this episode.
We talk the Pidgin Bible, kicking hard drugs, lava flow and Dairy Queen. Hawaiian comedy comes up and we get our favorite Hawaiian jokes out there and talk the big question about being from Hawaii, what would you be doing if you never left Hawaii. And finally we take your twitter questions and Zac talks why he’s terrified of “blowing the f*ck up”
Keep submitting your music to jonahraydio at gmail dot com and if you can check out the public good page for how you can help the victims of the lava flow in Hawaii

Podhaüs begin. Ted Leo, from Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, joins the podcast this week. Ted tells us about his Thin Lizzy proselytizing, his times with his early band Chisel and one of his longest held musical regrets. He tells us about his major label meeting that almost talked him into it and we forget the name of the guy who wrote Waiting for Godot and the Mark Wahlberg movie with the intimate behavior on the rollercoaster.
We also answer your twitter questions. Most of them were addressed to Ted. Also how the French-Dutch movie The Vanishing really screwed up Ted.

We start with an excerpt from Lance Bangs. We play a song from early in his career Bliss “Gaining Weight” and then Lance takes us through the crazy story of his tour with Mercury Rev on Lollapalooza ’93.
Next up is Bobcat Goldthwait from the Flying the Episode. He talks his time touring with “The Nirvanas”, his never launched two handed act with David Bowie, and jettisoning his old on stage character.
Next up we’re back to Lance Bangs where casually mentions surviving a plane crash and we make him go into it. Both Lance stories and even more with him are available on the Episode Before The Next One from our feed.
And finally, when we were putting this best of together, there was only one unanimous call from all of us. “The one where Ruby farted”. Ruby is Jonah and Deannas dog, who is old and has digestive trouble and was a frequent visitor when we did the sow from Jonah backyard shed. We play Sleeping Bag & Rozwell Kid- Miguel This episode features old friends Clint Trucks, Dave Kloc, Deanna Rooney, and Tony Thaxton. A great example of how this show started killing time and a 12 pack in Jonahs backyard.
See you next week

JonahRaydiots, fall in! We have Mike O’Brien, creator of AP Bio on NBC and the legendary 7 Minutes in Heaven interview series, come to the South Pasadena area to answer for his crimes. The crimes of being pleasant and charming! We talk the lack of sincerity in television, 1st concerts, memories of his SNL times. He also goes deep on the Shellac song that he was able to use in the recent season finale of AP Bio. Check it out on your steaming service of preference. Listen on to find out all about the band The Real Neats and we have an isolated vocal track comedy discussion that has to be the top isolated vocal track comedy discussion we’ve done since we joined Max Fun a few months ago.
