Episode 158 (Side A/The Singles): Operation McFerrincrime

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Here’s a little song I wrote…Makes you want to slit my throat…

 

…And with that, Geek Salad reviews the Music of 1988 with Episode 158: Operation McFerrincrime!  On this side of the record, Mike, And, Katherine, and Joe discuss the top singles of the year.  Among many One Week Wonders lie a few songs that completely overstayed their welcome, a couple of artists who we never thought we’d get rid of that suddenly disappeared, and a Thunder Dome-esque debate over the “good” to “unbelievable crappiness” merits of the “Beach Boys” Kokomo!

Episode 143: Syndicated Incorporated

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

Syndicated television shows really come in a few of different forms. There are the shows that were created for networks, first aired there, and then moved to syndicated after their run ended. There were shows that started on networks, but moved to syndication due to poor ratings and/or quality. And then there were the shows that were first aired on syndication. Well all three of these types will be discussed in Geek Salad episode 143: Syndicated Incorporated!

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they go over their many memories of syndicated TV. From the highs of Xena to the lows of Small Wonder and a whole lot of the in betweens, they go through both the joys and scars of their childhood memories of TV shows that couldn't quite make it to the big networks.

Be sure and stick around till the very end as the crew revives Trailer Park in honor of The Last Jedi trailer!

Episode 131: I Can’t Hear You!!!!

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Hello Cleveland!  Are you ready to rock?  I can’t hear you!  The team of Geek Salad are way louder than you!  And Andy, Mike, Katherine, and Joe have sobered up to tell you their favorite (and comically horrifying) concert and live music stories in Episode 131: I Can’t Hear You! 

 

Have you ever been a beer mule for a Brian Adams concert?  Andy has!  Have you ever seen Eric Clapton 8 times?  Joe has!  Have you ever seen Travis Tritt during the World’s Greatest Mullet phase?  Mike did!  And have you ever had to drive the stoner bus to a Phish show?  Katherine has stores…

 

There are also stories about opening bands that forgot their place in the pecking order, worst encores, and a whole lot more!   So grab your lighter (or your lighter app if you’re..ya know…young…) and hold out hope that they’ll close the show with “Freebird!”

Episode 115: Juice Box Hero

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

Do you remember the time long ago when Journey made their Escape as foretold by Rush's Tom Sawyer? If you can understand that mash of nonsense, then you must also know that Geek Salad has used their wayback machine to travel back to explore the music of 1981 in episode 115: Juice Box Hero.

Join Andy, Mike C, Mike G, Jim, Joe, and Katherine (the band is back together!) as they discuss the highs and lows of 1981 in music. They venture from Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" to Kool and the Gang's "Celebration" and all the way to Rick Springfield's "Jessie's Girl", and all the songs in between.
