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

No guest this week and we recorded on a Sunday afternoon. Talked Neils self inflicted haircut bet, Jonahs old shiny jeans, and gum chewing. You normal Sunday afternoon stories. Neil tells a half remembered story from an Ian MacKay interview with Henry Rollins. Jonah introduces the new segment “Jonah’s Right, Prove Him Wrong”, where you the viewer get a chance to tell him why he’s wrong about things. Write us at Jonahraydio@gmail.com to get your chance to argue with him.
And if you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, please come by the grand opening of World Famous Original, where Jonah will be DJing and Neil will be drinking. Cash will be there too.

So it all went wrong this time. Our guest, Rob Schrab put in the wrong address to his GPS and ended up 40 miles away from the studio. We were backed up against our deadline date so we needed to record one to go up today. So we started recording without him, actually called him and did sort of an interview while he sat in traffic. Then Jonah hung up on him and Rob called back and threatened to cut all of Jonahs close ups when he directs MST3K. It was really funny and worked out well and with a great game in the second act of the show we were back on top of the world with forty minutes of a great podcast we had salvaged from the ashes.
Then the recorder failed.
So we made another one and thats what you’re getting. Rob wouldn’t pick jp when we called back. Neil cheated in the game by using all Jonahs successful answers from the first, now lost, round. We talked band feuds. It was a real experience.

This week writer, producer, North Carolinian and old friend Emily V Gordon comes by. Spoiler warning for The Streets 2004 Album “A Grand Don’t Come For Free”. We talked a bunch of stuffs and boy howdy was it a swell time.
We talk talking with friends, taping down man boobs, NIN throwback ticketing techniques. We caught up on what Emily’s playing these days and Jonah recommends the game Florence and the old webisodes of Emilys old podcast The Indoor Kids(since removed from the internet). We go over what not to say in a submission email and Emily reveals her reasons for hating “the healing properties of Sugar Rios”.
Oh and it was Yamishiro

“[I’m a]better ping pong player than a slam poet.”- Sage Francis
Very Podcast this week. Sage Francis and B. Dolan, separately amazing road warrior MCs and together THE EPIC BEARD MEN supergroup you’ve been waiting for, came and sit down with Jonah, Cash, and a commute harried Neil Mahoney. We talk how Malaysian food is the cuisine of the future, how the two of them have been working to keep their shows safe spaces, Scribble Jam, the periodic table of hip hop elements, the fun of doing “fantasy rap”, and we go deep on how Slam Poetry is a system that can be manipulated. Fascinating stuff from fascinating guys. Myself, I was a little starstruck. We didn’t play a ton of music on this show, but please check out both Sage and B. Dolan, separately and together

Mahonaraydio is what happens when Jonah has some MST3K-duties and we still have a podcast to put out. Some great music on this episode!
We talk Chicago, what worked and what didn’t work. We talk games that you submitted that we didn’t get until after the show. We talk Spirit Airlines and the beginning of a blood feud between us and them that will go for centuries. We talk the proper care of your dark chocolate peanut butter cups.
New Jonah Raydio next week
