Lionel Ritchie's "Election Day Lover" Bottoms the Charts
Questionable Material with Jack & Brian
Vote-By-Phone. Amazing sandwich. Earl of Sandwich. Celebrating the Holidays without friends or relatives. Jack’s car was broken into and he lost a second wedding ring. Store your stuff on your dashboard in a gold box with dollar signs. Brian is a crime consultant. How to dispatch your neighbors during a civil conflict by focusing on the Easy Peasies. Make sure your vote is counted by marrying the poll worker. Lionel Ritchie’s worst song.
#55 ATN Interview with Lionel Ritchie's guitar player, Ben Mauro
Above the Noise
Ben's publicist reached out to me a while back when he was in Vancouver with Lionel Ritchie. She connected the two of us which lead to this interview. It was fascinating hearing Ben's story of how he got the gig playing with Lionel Ritchie, Brittany Spears, Christina Aguilera, John Fogerty, Tony Braxton, Don Felder and many more. I will hint that it had something to do with playing all the open mics and jam nights in NYC. Equally as interesting is hearing about how he is pursuing a parallel solo career as an independent artist. We talk about how he got into music, the importance of practicing, having the right support, persistence, playing out, remembering your beginnings, attitude, personality, learning the hits and how it has affected his personal career, as well as life on the road and his new album. This is an interview that a lot of you that are working hard to get the big break you've been waiting for will find inspiring and insightful.

Good heavens, what a show this week on Solid Cat. This may be our most random yet. We explore or love/hate relationship with the morning. Preschool is like an internship, and kindergarten is like a job. Val suffers from Zoe separation anxiety. We re-visit the Bakersfield Condors incident. Val has a bizarre Lionel Ritchie problem (and it sorta a funny thing). We theorize how reprises became remixes. We follow an uninterrupted train of Lionel Ritchie to Michael Jackson to big cats to Brooke Shields to NeverEnding Story to La Brea Tar Pits to Horror Films. Thanks to Psycho, Val never showered with the curtain closed. We have a ghost cat. Is Val a medium? A bizarre Frosted Flakes reference. It's the Summer of Mediterranea. Chicken & Waffles Potato Chips. "Hey kids, don't do drugs." "Never turn down Morphine in a controlled setting." Yay literacy! Whimsic Alley is awesome (we found Jammie Dodgers). Racquetball Adventures. Pirate Whale! "It's a family show... since when?"
