#24 The Saturday Night Live Edition with Joel Navaroli

In our SNL-iest podcast yet, we talk with Joel Navaroil the creator of the Saturday Night Live archive website.  This is THE website for the SNL super fan.  You can cross-reference every episode of Saturday Night Live by impression, host, cast member, season, LITERALLY every little tid-bit is in there.  If you want to know who was in the most recent Ed Grimley sketch and when that was you can just search for the character and find that all out,  (1996 with Chevy Chase in “Ed Grimley in Heaven”). We also get to hear some of Joel and my picks for timeless musical performances on SNL.  All the music on this weeks episode happened LIVE on Saturday Night!  We talk about hidden gems and infamous episodes and then get into some serious SNL trivia.  This has been such a fun episode to make, good to talk to another SNL fanatic!  Enjoy.

#22.1 The Les Claypool edition feat. Toaster

Welcome back music lovers to Cosmic Lion Radio #22.1 the Les Claypool edition featuring Toaster from Toasterland.com.  In our bassiest edition ever we feature Toaster the underground archivist/curator of Toasterland.com’s galleries of setlists and streaming audio spanning the length of Les Claypool’s career.  I asked him to pick out some weird and wild cuts for us from deep in the archives and he came back with so many amazing live Claypool moments that I had to split this episode into two parts.  The podcasts are in chronological order and part one goes from 1989-2005 and features Primus, The Frog Brigade, Holy Mackerel (super rare stuff) and more.  You are really gonna get deep into the corners of the Claypool archive and hear some truly amazing music as well as hear Toaster and I talk about the shows and what makes us love Claypool so much. 

            If you haven’t checked Toasterland.com out yet and you like Les Claypool then you are really missing out.  It is an amazing wealth of knowledge and music and I am so thankful that he does what he does.  It was great to have him on this special 2 part episode.  See ya’ next week for part 2!

#18: Remember When We Were Young

Welcome back to the show! This week is by far the Friendiest podcast ever! Inspired by the first song I played, I challenged myself and some friends to, "Remember When We Were Young." I spoke to four great friends.  We get to speak to Ryan Dougherty, long time friend, painter, whose work was featured in the Monkelion comic and is also featured on the cover of this episode and Cali-based tye dyer (like he will tye-dye anything).  We get to speak to Tim and Lydia, hometown friends from Cumberland MD, Delfest Foundation Board members and just plain great people.  We get to speak to John Griffin, former owner of Larry’s Landing in St. John, USVI, great friend and a guy I have looked up to since the day I met him.  We get to speak to Colby Dix, one half of the comic gold that is Touchpants, guitar player, and album releaser. We got to speak to all these great people and hear songs that helped shape their musical journeys young in life.  It was a true honor and something we are going to do again.  If you’d like to be on the next show or have questions you want answered on the show, email me at eli@cosmiclionproductions.com
