Gordcast
Gordie Adams hosts a podcast with his intrepid co-host Paul Bertolino. Along the way, special guests will show up covering such things as music, comic books, movies, memories and whatever else comes out. Bonus episodes of The Gordcast Shuffle are included in the same feed. Join us.

Paul and Gordie celebrate Boxing Day the old fashioned way, with fifths of scotch and Christmas stories aplenty.

Paul receives many unexpected packages and Gordie gets a great package from the EOC Holiday Exchange, filled with the smell of old comics and autographs. Gordie has found a new vocabulary hiccup and talks PROG. Paul is a great sleeper and doesn't know that WILLIE AMES is now THE BIBLEMAN.  SPACE 1999, FRANK ZAPPA, DWEEZIL ZAPPA, ALICE COOPER, TWISTED FUCKING SISTER, LITA FORD, Y & T, CHEAP TRICK, BLITZEN TRAPPER, PUGWASH, NRBQ, THE MUFFS and REDD KROSS all show up too.

Episode 61 - Happy  Life Day!

It's Pauls birthday so we sit down and talk for another rollicking GORDCAST. Paul does a little record shopping (shocking!) that leads to THE WHO's - QUADROPHENIA boxset. JETHRO TULL, ELTON JOHN, ROB ZOMBIE, JOHN LENNON and DIMEBAG DARRELL all show up too. Gordie checks out the temporary ice rink in downtown Napa and gives a postal update. The real gem of the night is talking about THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL from 1978, after being reminded of it from the EOC SKYPE N' DRAW night. (Featuring an excerpt from that conversation)

We close out with feelings of this time of year and unfortunately, black Friday madness.

An impromptu Gordcast rises from a sound check run through. Paul works with Photoshop and Gordie likes Curves, leading to learning riffs with KISS, from the Destroyer sessions.

Episode 56 - Everything You Always Wanted to Know About DAVID PRICE* (*...But Were Afraid to Ask)

Gordie goes on a nerd blind date with DAVID PRICE from Eleven O' Clock Comics. If you don't like Gordie's voice, this is the one for you. Who knew DAVID could talk non-stop for two hours straight! David tells us about every town he's lived in, how he met RENEE and meeting knuckleheads at comic cons that lead to podcast empires. We both root for the bull, have animal empathy and are oblivious to bi-racial relationship condemnation and sideways glances.  David says he will come back to another GORDCAST for an actual back and forth conversation and Gordie heads to A.P.E.  Another loooong episode, so enjoy!

Gordie is back from his holiday in the British Isles and tells Paul Bertolino of his travels. Avoiding London altogether, Gordie visits small villages, the Holy Grail of Castles in Scotland and doesn't hear any leaf blowers. Paul has moved and runs into Lou Reed and Robert Plant.

Episode 44 - Pot Beland!

Gordies voice is doubled and echoed all through his talk with TOM BELAND. We begin by talking about Canadian Parliment which slams full on into a 20 minute Marijuana discussion, complete with pizza and The Legend Of Zelda. Sports is up next with World Series talk, posting football scores in the window for the guys at the bakery across the street from the Lovejoy Mansion, sports cosplay and how STRAT-O-MATIC BASEBALL is more fun than D&D.

We finally get around to talking TRUE STORY SWEAR TO GOD and Toms internet goes down.

Hope you can get through, but honestly, Tom does most of the talking.

Episode 43 - Four  Monkees At The Table!

In an unprecedented Gordcast, Gordie and Paul wrangle previous guest: Nathan Alfaro and new guest: Brian Nash to provide a glimpse into when four friends get together around a mic and let fly. (...Gordie a little too much.)

MIKE NESMITH seems to be the main topic, but we hit on THE MONKEES, JUDAS PRIEST, THE FOO FIGHTERS, PRINCE THE BANANA SPLITS, BURT WARD, WIL WHEATON, the roots of Alt Country and way too much table banging for emphasis.

The sound can be a bit jarring at times, so hold onto yer ears.

We discuss SGT PEPPER (the movie) and other Robert Stigwood gems. We compare and contrast Saturday Night Fever with Samurai Night Fever and locations in and around Brooklyn.

Episode 40 - Happy Prog Year!

Gordie and Paul record a landmark episode by staying home on New Years Eve instead of being on the loose in the New York streets. Gordies impessive Yeti and finally using Audio Hijack, vastly improves the quality. Gordie is not going to see DiAnno in a small club and brings up picture discs, which leads to PROG discussion.

Paul sings, reads and ice skates in Central Park. (...and falls.)

We close up by wondering where last years Christmas presents are.
