#49 at San Diego Comic Con

We were somewhere around San Diego on the edge of the ocean when the comics began to take hold. This week we are back with our Gonzo round-up of the 2016 San Diego Comic Con. I was lucky enough to attend this year’s con and work the Greg Horn Art booth. With my handy mic I was able to traverse the convention floor and collect some amazing interviews from some of comic’s most interesting and legendary names. Dave McKean, Stan Sakai and Geof Darrow to name a few. The Gonzo began to take hold as I also had my mic on during some late knight adventures with the one and only Truce II Head Rush. Then on Saturday the adventure of Comic Con>Phish lead to some amazing realizations and a chance meeting with the weekends white whale. Listen in for more Gonzo/Comic goodness!

#48 with Jamel Johnson

We are back with Jamel Johnson, comedian and former co-host of my previous podcast “Podcast Classics.” It’s a pleasure to have Jamel on the show and to dive back into the sea of tapes we have amassed since our last meeting. Did you know that podcasting is over 100 years old? Did you know that Jamel’s and my families have been podcasting together for most of those 100? Well it’s true, all of it. In this episode we found a tape of an old podcast classic. On that episode they found a tape of a classic podcast and on that episode they found a classic commercial. Since it’s “inception” podcasting has been in our blood. Jamel and I not only had a great time reminiscing about our family histories but we also learned something about the history of Washington/Baltimore sports. Pretty cool. Check it out.

#47 with Dave Crosland

This week we are back, live in the studio with Dave “King Gum” Crosland. Dave was kind enough to have me over to his studio where I got to revel in the artistry throughout the interview. We got to talk about his artistic start with concert posters, his travels, some of the strange and unusual projects he’s pitched for and much more. Dave also hand picked (how else do you pick stuff) all the music for this episode (mostly) and chose songs that played pivotal roles in crucial times in his life, ups, downs, slings, arrows, and gum. So sit back, relax and check out my chat with King Gum!

Dave has worked on:

Comics: Invader Zim, Puffed, Scarface: Scarred For Life, Yo Gabba Gabba, CBGB & OMFUG, Bad Ideas, Slop and more.

Album Art: Gym Class Heroes "As Cruel As School Children," Blueprint "1988," Incubus / Lollapalooza backdrop artwork

#42 Phish Edish part 2 with Kevin Statesir

After a long hiatus we are back and phishier then ever! Over the break I was able to write 3 comics that appeared in the “Ball Street Journal” at Phish’s Magnaball festival. That was cool. You can check those comix out or buy a print of them HERE.

Also in this edition we get to speak to Kevin Statesir co-owner of Higher Ground in S. Burlington Vt and Phish family member. We talk about his roots, the amazing 8 Foot Fluorescent Tubes show that helped open HG in 98’ and about what makes HG so special. So check it out, there’s more rare and weird Phish then you can trigger a Blastoplast at.

#41 with David Gans

 

This week we celebrate the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary by talking to the host of ‘The Grateful Dead Hour,” David Gans. We’ll explore the far-reaching corners of the Dead archives by exploring interpretations of the Dead’s music through out history.  We got to talking, and we found out that the heart and soul of the Dead is really the heart and soul of what Bobby called “misfit power.” Fifty years later here we are, “Fare Thee Well” is about to happen heralding the end of “The Grateful Dead.” What legacy has the Grateful Dead left?  How has The Grateful Dead changed American music forever?  Find out this week on Cosmic Lion Radio.
