The Sound Board #31: A Rose By Any Other Name Would Still Be a Bette Midler Reference

Michael Madsen from Reservoir Dogs

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode stars Prof. Tuffley and Rob Levy with Widgett in the pilot’s seat, crashing into buildings more often than not.

This episode’s central topic is name changes. What do they mean and do we even care? We also discuss the latest in live music, including what God has against Lollapalooza, what London has against Bruce Springsteen, and why you would attend a festival on a boat. In addition, we discuss the Olympics, punching Bieber and remember Kitty Wells.

The Sound Board #22: The Magical Musical Heist

Bank Vault Door

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is hosted by myself with support from Dr. Rob Levy and Prof. Tuffley.

This episode’s central topic is: the magical musical heist. What legendary, rare or potentially lost thing would we put a crew together and go steal if we thought we could get away with it? I’m sure we missed some–add your own ideas in the comments.

Plus we discuss the loss of Amy Winehouse, Michael Burston, Facundo Cabral and Manuel Galban. We discuss the state of the music business. Yes, again. Where does Spotify and other digital services fit into this mess? Why are album sales down? We reflect on MTV turning 30 and Lollapalooza turning 20 and share some memories of both entities. Plus some other random bits of musical geekery and knowledge thrown in and seasoned to taste.

The Sound Board #6: The Record Store in its Natural Habitat

DJ Shadow: Entroducing

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions and is co-hosted by Rob Levy, Tuffley and myself. Let us know what you think.

This episode’s central topic is the record store. Record Store Day is one thing, but what do we do with the other 364 days of the year? Do independent stores still serve a purpose in a world of Amazon and the iTunes store? And where do big box stores fit in with this mess?

Other topics include Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Snoop Dogg vs. Willie Nelson (we wish), other festival nonsense, M.I.A. vs. Lady Gaga, Elton John vs. The Mayans, Rage Against the Machine in the UK, Amanda Palmer unchained, OKGo slight return, The Vatican forgives The Beatles, The Runaways and remembering Malcolm McLaren.
