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.

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.

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.

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.

Gordie is joined by long time friend, singer, artist and workout advocate - GEOFF ELLSWORTH.
Geoff tells stories of the road and the genesis of why touring was important in the 2000's, Authentic cowboy shows, The India question, Irishmen on the road and how to get female attention on stage.
Gordie stays out of the way and lets the stories unfold and Geoff sings exclusive previews of songs he's writing. You heard it here first!

Paul Bertolino is back from his big summer trip with plenty to talk about.
Gordie pleads with the new listeners for some feedback, reminds everyone that BOSTON is owed tremendous props and champions LAWERENCE WELK! Paul tells of the downfall of the Bay Area music scene, is not stoked about the GREASE sing-along in theaters and finishes up with a nice tale of UK mono pressings of THE MOODY BLUES.

Gordie checks in with Paul Bertolino on his New York summer.
Gordie discovers new music from the sixties, (...yet again) makes another new friend and is okay with Ryan Adams. Paul has taken to wearing a beard, just like everybody else in NY and reveals MOBYS new metal band with fellow pal PHIL COSTELLO. DIAMONDSNAKE!
We both decide that there is no need for an A-TEAM movie and look forward to a time of new ideas in Hollywood.

It's back to the usual format when Paul Bertolino joins Gordie from New York, to talk about fallen heroes and soon to be fallen heroes.
Paul sees The New York Dolls, Hanoi Rocks' Michael Monroe and sings in the streets with the homeless. Gordie runs into a Sasquatch in Portland, gets stuck in Utah and has zero tolerance for uninformed Christian fanatics.
They both mourn Ronnie James Dio and tell how he effected us through the ages.
Paul finishes up with reading Ozzys biography and we welcome new listeners and their comments.

Gordie meets and interviews John Siuntres from Word Balloon, for the first time! (...beamed in from the Boom Tube or surfing on cosmic waves.) The conversation is super comic book centric, while dipping in and out of sports talk, movie talk and who's the oldest guy in the room.
John admits he is not a gardener, nor a fisherman, but loves being a city guy and gives Gordie tips on how to rule the podcast waves.
Gordie meets celebrities,gave up on comics, stayed cool with Love and Rockets, Cerebus, Arthur Adams and fails his own test on old time hockey conferences.
They both agree that Breaking Bad and Precious (based on the novel Push by Sapphire) are tough to watch, but Schindler's List can be enjoyed? more than once.
EC comics, Jack Davis, Jason Aaron, Al Feldstein, Chris Neseman, Brubaker and wonder of wonders... Bendis gets mentioned.
This one goes longer than usual, but we just kept going. Just listen and enjoy!
Welcome new listeners!
