We all have something that makes our cheeks go all ruddy with excitement. Musician and Entertainer Aristotle Dreher and Writer/Creative Tara Dalton have a simple mission: create a space where we can all share stories of fandom, come to express adulation, gratitude, and sometimes confusion for the musical and otherwise artistic contributions of both well-known and lesser known artists. A funny romp through the tulips with Aristotle and Tara where we shine a light on experiences, anecdotes, impressions, even real-life interactions with beloved performers. We. Are. Listening.

Ep 27 - Fiction Writer Wm Boyle
Fiction writer, music fanatic and friend William Boyle joins us this week to tell us about his work, growing up in Brooklyn, his music and film inspirations, getting starstruck and the writing process. We talk inner landscapes and creative states, following the thread of inspiration, having a healthy diet of high art and trash. Join us!
Ep 26 - Measured Madness!
(( intro to the Measured Madness ep is cut off btw)) - synopsis ; On this week's episode, we say goodbye to the vibrant and hilarious Fred Willard! We also dip into talking a little about synesthesia (a form of madness or artistic interpretation?) Hayley Williams and lead singer spotlight entitlement? Which songs smell like vacuum bags to you? Which songs make your mouth water? Coping mechanisms and measured madness and fireworks and horn honking and the bright lights of important musicians going out in the age of the virus. Quarantine gets a little quantum and we ultimately, as ever, try to beam light on the positive things we got going for us. Don't gun anyone, just rock & roll.
Ep 25 - Random Fandom! We Just Don't Get it!
Dream Theatre, The Offspring, Insane Clown Posse culture (we do though, sort of get that), Kiss, Modern "hip-hop," and internet based sewing discord and manufacturing fake outrage. This week we explore fandoms and other things we don't understand. We talk rock climbing and sculpting your way to the grave, doing what you love until it kills you. The magic of Mel Blanc. The newest Tool album comes up again, obviously. How do we love Tool, let us count the ways. How is Tool different from say, Phish? How is Tool like The Nazca Lines?! How about getting it eventually albeit with a delayed understanding? Kudos, UP YOURS! We don't get it, so help us know. We don't bash but will take the backlash.
Ep 24 - We Talk Keanu with Erika Zabelle and John Moeslein of POINT BREAK LIVE!

Ep 23 - Sexuality in Music with Lee Mehlich
If the car is rockin and rollin, don't come a' strollin! The illustrious and versatile gemini and Fan Story engineer, Lee Mehlich joins us to discuss sexuality in music and share his unreal real-life David Bowie fan story with us! Sexuality, the invention of rocknroll and perversion, are they all linked? We read into lyrics and think about overt sexuality vs subtlety. What makes a performer sexy? Whose bath water would you drink and why? Does cuddling with an artist always lead to sex? Is too sexy even sexy anymore? Who is your personal Elvis? Girly boys and drag queens, androgynous aliens, and gods and phallic mic stand moves. Who is the sexiest musician of all?
