Episode 42 - Plumbing The Depths of Music!

Gordie is joined by Ty Domke to talk about music, UFOs and plumbing. Ty goes to his first concert at the LA Forum, wants to play her-monica and knows a little bit about a lot of things. Joe Satriani sets off the fire alarm at The Uptown Theater where the sound is incredible. Big Country and UFO makes Gordie smile and we finish up talking about wine, Maynard from Tool and Art Bell.  (Jake Shimabukuro, The Rolling Stones, KISS, The Doors, The Southern Death Cult, Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Huey Lewis also come up.)

Episode 41 - A Hard Dorks Night!   ( ...dorks like us.)

Paul Bertolino joins Gordie to discuss the weather once again. (Paul finally buys winter boots!)

Gordie plays gin rummy with his family and compiles his favorite Beatles songs and stays "posi 2011." 

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.

Gordie delivers christmas parcels to Austalians and we confuse KANSAS with STYX with PARADISE ALLEY.

Football wraps up our discussion as we welcome new listeners.  Enjoy.

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.

Episode 37 - No, Because...  I Mean, You know!

Paul Bertolino is all settled in New York and Gordie announces that Autumn is finally here.

Paul goes to his first NY Comic-Con and talks to Joyce DeWitt like a hooker, doesn't buy anything and gets his girlie-pants tailored. Gordie tells a story that he may have already told, admits he may have A.D.D. and has to censor Paul. We end up discecting language and trying to find groovy winter footwear for Paul.

Paul Bertolino has moved to New York and played music along the way.

Paul tells of touring with TORNADO RIDER at places like the DOUBLE DOOR in Chicago, hanging out at VILLAGE INNS in Denver, watching families torn asunder and watches DIRTY HARRY for the first time. Gordie doesn't pay attention to the weather, yet talks waaaaaaaaay too long about it and laughs a bunch.

We wrap things up with NAPA nostalgia around the Bicentennial and PETER FRAMPTON and DAYS ON THE GREEN.

Gordcast episode 35 - Comic Books Bring People Together!

Gordie welcomes JORDAN PHEGLEY to the podcast community in a story of how 11 O 'CLOCK COMICS brings people together.    (...no, seriously.)

Jordan grows up without TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE, but loves old timey radio. Reads STUCK RUBBER BABY, has an altar to MORRISSEY and is going to be a father soon.

Gordie reads THE BIBLE ...again, loves TONY MILLIONAIRE, thanks Jordan for exposing him to ANTONY & THE JOHNSTONS and doesn't know how to PARTY IN THE U.S.A.

They finish up with dog attack stories while on the job and pledge to record many GORDCASTS.
