Totally Awesome Fest 11… on this weekend’s edition of the Saturday Six Pack

Every time I think about retiring from radio, a new poster comes out featuring my head crudely sewn on to yet another body more interesting than my own, and it occurs to me that I need to keep going, if only to see where my severed head will wind up next. This week, it looks […]

The episode where Pete Larson flies in from Kenya to announce his rebirth as a Mississippi bluesman, we trade a Suzanne Somers “three way” poncho for eight bottles of cheap wine, and one of my guests tells me that she’s posed nude for Playboy… The Saturday Six Pack #13

I know he probably has a legitimate beef, but I can’t help but think that this is part of a well-orchestrated viral ad campaign for the new NWA biopic

For what it’s worth, and with all due respect to those who make their living in law enforcement, NWA’s Fuck tha Police is a really good song.
