BONUS DEMO - Little Known And Untrue History, Gene Simmons
Unfinished, silly demo episode in the style of the 70s TV show In Search Of, presenting a false and comical (hopefully) history of an artist.  In this incomplete demo, Gene Simmons of KISS.  
EM83 - Dave Meniketti of Y&T
Dave Meniketti of Y&T joins Eric in conversation to discuss the beginnings of his career, the early formation of Y&T, how he went from his dad's record collection to discovering blues guitarists, early days songwriting, finding his confidence as a vocalist, the legendary Winterland 1974 show, memories of the original members that have since passed away, some anecdotes of touring with the enthusiastic partier that was Bon Scott, business struggles with A&M and Geffen in the 80s and 90s, bringing in Steve Smith on their Ten record, how Y&T kind of side stepped the grunge era and kept it together through the 90s, his solo career, discovering some classic tunes hidden in their vault, what led to their newest release, Acoustic Classix Volume 1, how he got involved in his other business, Meniketti Wines, will there be another proper Y&T album, what's next for him and the band, and much more!
Six-Pack of Y&T, Volume One
Six-Pack of Y&T, Volume One On this Six-Pack episode, Mr Matt Porter of The KISS Room and Sonny "Hollywood" Pooni of Growin' Up Rock join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to assemble a six pack of Y&T gems.  We each bring two of our favorite Y&T songs covering their full discography - some hits, some obscure tracks, and some deep cuts.  We also share some personal memories of how we got into the band, how their fanbase is super loyal but not as expansive as we'd hope, their heights on MTV and in the 80s, recent performances, and tons more.  In fact, at least 16 tons more! So sit back and enjoy a few friends enjoying a tight little playlist of Y&T classics.
EM85 - Danny Vaughn of Tyketto
Danny Vaughn of Tyketto joins Eric in conversation to take a track by track look back at the band's 1994 sophomore release, Strength In Numbers.  Produced by legendary producer Kevin Elson, their follow-up to Don't Come Easy had a difficult journey making it's way onto shelves following the whole wave of grunge that displaced many bands of the time.  Danny shares his personal memories and all the details behind the album's creation and journey. A solid fan favorite, Strength In Numbers features some songs that were should-have-been monstrous AOR hits of the day - Rescue Me, Catch My Fall, Standing Alone.  But the album also demonstrated the band was interested in growing and branching out.  They were writing deeper, smarter, and more varied songs at the time.  There are some healthy and authentic dashes of blues, Springsteen-esque singer-songwriter, mandolins, harmonicas, Bo Diddly beats, sweeping almost-progressive rockers and so much more. For the 25th anniversary of the album, Tyketto will be doing some touring where they'll perform the full album in its entirety - get those details here.  They also have a new live CD and DVD that captures and ambitious performance featuring horns and strings. On the solo front, Danny has a super-interesting new solo album of "odd songs" in the works and well as his duet project with Dan Reed of Dan Reed Network. If you're familiar with Tyketto, you'll enjoy this in-depth discussion of this classic album.  If you're new to the band, hopefully you'll listen and discover a truly solid rock album from 1994 that you may have missed the first time around.
