MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 807 The News Show

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST effizode 807

Today it's the return of the much loved feature DO YOU KNOW DAT? where we hear interesting news items that you didn't know, plus we hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!  And stocks go crazy for a new burger restaurant.  One that has that allusive umami flavor.  You want that flavor, little hipster?  Then part your gross, fuzzy beard and suck on a salt shaker.

Though I like food as much as the next guy, I'm getting a little fed up with foodies.  All that orgasmic reaction to overpriced, over hyped food.  And throwing that term "umami" around like it was the most unprecedented discovery of all time.  "But it's not salt, Mike.  It's MSG."  Oh, okay, and it's not real music if I listen to it as an mp3.  Go eat another 10 dollar a bag of chips while listening to your Jack White vinyl.  I'll be over here listening to a ringtone from 1999.

Next show I'll have a very creative music producer named ANTHONY VERNON, plus we'll hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 806 The Country Music Show

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST effizode 806

Today we hear an old interview I did over 12 years ago with a brand new BLAKE SHELTON, plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!  And is Facebook being like the teenager that gets a hold of the parent's credit card?

I am really being hit by memories before I go to bed at night.  Last night I thought about when my second cousin from Germany came to visit and my former wife and I took her to Yosemite.  Wow, that was a lot of driving.  You enter the park, and then you've got to drive another hour to see any of the major sites.  If you're going just for the day, get ready for some really sore butts.  I think we can all agree that soreness in that particular part of the anatomy is not entirely welcome.

Next show it's the return of the much loved feature DO YOU KNOW DAT? where we hear interesting news items that you didn't know, plus we hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 805 The News Show

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST effizode 805

Today we hear the return of the much loved segment NEWS RANDOM where we look at some very interesting news stories that you haven't heard yet.  PLUS, we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!  And Vampire Bat Drones?  Do those turn into Vampire Drones?  Do I need to by my movie ticket now to see a Cyborg Twilight?  (The answer to that is always no—just say "no" to bad acting!)

Yes, it's been a long time since the last "effizode."  It's been a busy couple of weeks and I was not able to take you to THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH.  Then, after a certain amount of time, self doubt took effect.  What am I doing?  Why am I doing this?  And then I realized I HAVE to do this.  I am an independent DIY podcast creator and my show is NOT heard on any radio station beforehand.  I originally championed podcasting because I thought of it as a way people could make their unique voices heard.  Then radio stations and "podcast networks" began podcasting and it made this medium less about the individual and more about the big name corporations: the ESPN sports, the Nerdist Networks, the NPR shows.  And god, why did Serial get so big when it was also from a corporate machine (This American Life aka American Public Media aka Garrison Keillor).  What about the kids in their basementS producing shows?  What about the independent podcasters?  Please listen to them first and foremost.  I have resurrected my drive to podcast!  I am doing this for the INDEPENDENT VOICE!

Next show I'll have a very special guest plus we'll hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 804 The Indie Rock Show

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST effizode 804

Today I have the FINALE of my INTO AN INTERVIEW with the BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA band CRUMB CATCHER, plus we hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!  And musicians of the world, gamers need you…now!  We find out why.

The Golden Globes were this past weekend and now the Oscar nominations are out.  May I just say that Michael Keaton's acceptance speech on Sunday night for his Golden Globe was so nice.  He mentioned his real name, changed in part due to there already being a Michael Douglas, and the deep love he has for his parents and his son.  Who knew his mom gave birth to him in a hallway?  No matter what you think of his movies, he really is a unique Hollywood actor, and I'm so glad he's had such a rich career.

Next show it's the return of the much loved segment NEWS RANDOM where we look at some very interesting news stories that you haven't heard yet.  PLUS, we'll hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 803 The Alternative Rock Show

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST effizode 803

Today I have PART 2 of my INTO AN INTERVIEW with the BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA band CRUMB CATCHER, plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!  And poor poor Texas with all their subsidized oil companies losing money because of the oil prices dropping.  Makes you feel sorry for them, till you remember the past 10 years of putting gas in your car and shelling out over 50 bucks at Shell to fill your tank.

Okay, I meant Chicken Pox, not measles, when I talked about picking one of the bumps as a kid and creating an indentation on my forehead.  This later became known as my "third eye."  Am I Third Eye Blind?  I guess that's "How It's Going To Be" because I live a "Semi-Charmed Life" and I'll "Never Let You Go."  Oh, by the way, today I'm wearing a "Jumper."

Tomorrow it's the FINALE of my INTO AN INTERVIEW with the BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA band CRUMB CATCHER, plus we'll hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 802 The Indie Rock Show

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST effizode 802

Today I have a very special band on the segment INTO AN INTERVIEW!  It's CRUMB CATCHER and we talk to their three members at their special HQ in Burlington, North Carolina!  It's my first interview for 2015!  Plus we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!  And Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to the measles epidemic we go!

I watched the Benedict Cumberbatch movie "The Imitation Game" last night.  Though Alan Turing's life is fascinating, this movie is kinda boring in its attempt to dumb down the material.  The movie should have just focused on how he cracked the Nazi ENIGMA code and given less screen time to his childhood or later life.   Keira Knightly is too hot to play his wife, thus making that whole section of the movie completely unbelievable.  I think I'll just read Turing's biography and try to forget the film.  My rating: Barely even a bit of a Mikey smile.

Tomorrow I'll have PART 2 of my INTO AN INTERVIEW with the BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA band CRUMB CATCHER, plus we'll hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 801 The News Show

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST effizode 801

Today, so that we may all think good thoughts for my mom who really needs them right now, I’m bringing you her inspired segment WOW SCHATZ WOW featuring some interesting news stories. Plus we’ll hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster.  And they've opened up a time capsule from George Washington's day.  Was the body of Icabod Crane in there and was he awakened and does he now have to fight Moloch?  Yes, I'm the only one left who still watches that.

Woah, I tried to watch "Batman and Robin" last night.  That's the George Clooney movie that almost killed the franchise…and I can see why.  I have never seen it before but I've always been curious.  Joel Shoemaker tried to direct this thing with his own wannabe Tim Burton style, but it ended up long and wasteful.  DC Comics must thank the heavens that they found Christopher Nolan.

Next show I have a very special guest for the segment INTO AN INTERVIEW!  It will be my first interview for 2015!  Plus we'll hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!

Today it's THE FINALE of the BEST OF 2014 on the segment 2014 FOR THEE RADIO, plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!   And did you ask Santa for a blow up spaceship?  NASA did.  Those perverts.

Hey, big news!  This past weekend I began my first show on an Internet radio station called Country Crossroads Radio Dot Com.  It's put on by this great guy named Josh and the music is a huge variety of Country music.  As you know, I was on KHAY in Ventura County for over a decade from the early 90's to the early 00's so I got to know that music really well.  Plus I listened to it a lot as a kid.  You can hear me and a huge swath of our Country music heritage from 2pm to 7pm Eastern time on Saturday and Sunday.  That being said, no Country on today's podcast.  But it is always welcome!

Next show, so that we may all think good thoughts for my mom who really needs them right now, I'm going to bring you her inspired segment WOW SCHATZ WOW!  Plus we'll hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 799 The Indie Band Show

MIKE's DAILY PODCAST effizode 799

Today we hear PART 3 of the best of 2014 on 2014 FOR THEE RADIO!  Plus we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!  And dang you Apple iOS for eating my smart phone alive!

VH1's "I Love the 80's" was a show I often watched back when I had cable.  Well, I don't have it now, but I did have access to cable over the past couple of days and I watched the newly minted "I Loved the 2000's."  First off, I have called it and will forever call that decade THE OH's.  Second, as funny as that show can be, they rely a bit much on praising every single rap song and destroying ever single adult contemporary song.  If the song ever played on a station with John Tesh on it, it deserves to be atom-bombed.  Though part of me agrees with that I think they lay waste to some decent tunes.  Oh, by the way, "I Hate the VH1."  Is that a show?

Next show it's THE FINALE of the BEST OF 2014 on the segment 2014 FOR THEE RADIO, plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

MIKE’s DAILY PODCAST 798 The Alternative Show

MIKE's DAILY PODCAST effizode 798

Today I have PART 2 of the best of 2014 on 2014 FOR THEE RADIO.  Plus we hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!  And reading is bad for your health!  That is if you're reading an e-book and trying to make yourself e-tired.

Here's what you do on this Christmas Eve: walk around your neighborhood and enjoy all the holiday decorations.  Go on.  Be cheesy.  Just do it.  In a couple days they'll all be gone and you'll say to yourself I'm glad that holiday's over with.  But what's the point of living if you don't stop and take a look at the world around you with all its quirkiness and wonderment?  Yes, Christmas decorations are wonderment.  Really!  Have you seen some of the decoration choices people make?

Next show I'll have PART 3 of the best of 2014 on 2014 FOR THEE RADIO!  Plus we'll hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!
