It’s Off the Record from last week’s show! Bridget is back (with a vengeance…and a potty mouth) as she talks to folks before the show about dream jobs becoming reality, a complete lack of hip hop knowledge, and the douchebaggery of John Mayer. The three topics every great interviewer knows to bring up at least once.
You heard it here first–on April 17th we’re relaunching a completely revamped Soundtrack Series Podcast! You’ll still be able to listen/subscribe to the podcast both here and on iTunes, but beginning on April 17th, she’s gonna have a brand new format. The Soundtrack Series Podcast will now feature not one but two different stories per episode–Side A and Side B–a format that is most definitely inspired by these here thingies:
New episodes will air every other week beginning on April 17th, so let the countdown begin! In sixteen days, stories about songs as always, but with a sexy new haircut. So go on! Run to your room and jump up and down on your bed. I know this news provokes that exact reaction.
Soundtrack Series host Dana Rossi and her mother Joanne tell a story together about Dana as a restless, sleepless baby, and the one thing that was finally able to put her to sleep. Hint: it wasn’t the song.
It’s almost a month later and we’re still tearing up about it.
You know by now that at last month’s show, we had a marriage proposal live onstage after the final story. Couple Erin Barker and Justin D’Ambrosio told a story together (the theme of the night was “Duets”) about how “Just What I Needed” by The Cars came to be their song, and then, to her complete surprise, he finished the story by getting down on one knee. Everyone went bananas. See for yourself.
We’re live again this Thursday, 8pm, at The Gallery at LPR–featuring stories by JEAN GRAE, MARK YARM, MAGGIE SEROTA and AARON WOLFE, plus, the famous East Coast/West Coast hip hop debate with DAWN FRASER and MIKE BROWN.
I’m sure we won’t have another marriage proposal at this show, but I’m not giving up hope on the possibility of someone going into labor. Advance tickets have been going fast, grab ‘em now!
Don’t know if you heard, but this totally happened at our last show.
Onstage marriage proposal at the end of our final story. We have no idea how we’re gonna top this at our next show. But we’re sure gonna try.
In two weeks – our March 28th Soundtrack Series featuring stories about songs from hip hop artist Jean Grae, Maggie Serota of Low Times, Everybody Loves Our Town author Mark Yarm and hot off of the Sundance Film Festival Aaron Wolfe. All that, PLUS the timeless East Coast/West Coast debate with Dawn Fraser and Mike Brown.
Off. The. Hook. And who knows? Maybe at this one someone will go into labor…
It’s Off the Record from our February show! Geeking Out’s Kerri Doherty talks to the audience about the songs they sing in the shower, not watching the Oscars, NKOTB’s upcoming tour with Boyz II Men, the best/only Bel Biv Devoe joke you’ll ever hear, and how Kurt Cobain never would have drunk Starbucks.
Mellini Kantayya, author of Actor. Writer. Whatever., on how “Back on the Chain Gang” began her love/hate relationship with MTV–a relationship that would eventually lead to her participating in a racially charged, post-9/11 PSA.
So far, we’ve had an insane response to our new segment–The Rock & Roll Throwdown, which is our verbal cage match on music’s most famous debates. Our first debate was Vinyl vs. Digital, with Vinyl taking the cake. This past Thursday, the debate was on whether or not Yoko broke up the Beatles, and team “no she did NOT” took that prize. (Well, the prize of a t-shirt. The consolation prize was a framed photo of Wings, so really, they both won.)
But the Throwdown is open to everyone. So if you have the need, the need for…winning swag by getting on the mic and debating music’s most famous, gnawed on arguments–get at us! Tell us here, or on Twitter (@soundtrkseries) or in an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Let us know what you’d just LOVE to climb in the cage for. Everyone should have a chance to be Rocky. Or Drago.
