    Episode 396 - Top Ten Movie Musician Portrayals w/Matt Dinan, Julia Marchese & Ryan Stockstad

    Episode 396 - Top Ten Movie Musician Portrayals w/Matt Dinan, Julia Marchese & Ryan Stockstad

    Who likes movies? Who likes biopic movies? Who likes biopic movies about musicians? We do! Some of the best performances in cinematic history have been movie musician portrayals, and the hardest part to pull off is when the movie is based on a real musician. That's what ATTT is all about this week, and we've got just the crew for this monumental task. Matt Dinan, Julia Marchese and Ryan Stockstad are 3 of the biggest movie nerds in all of Los Angeles county, which pretty much puts them in the category for biggest movie nerds worldwide. They know their stuff, and we here at ATTT know our music, so it was a delight to count down our all time faves. Some of these performances won Oscars, by the way. Check it out, cinephiles and vidiots!

    Episode 393 - Top Ten Hit Songs With Odd Time Signatures w/Dustin Prince

    Episode 393 - Top Ten Hit Songs With Odd Time Signatures w/Dustin Prince

    Any old schmo with an abacus can do the math and whip up a song in an odd time signature. What's tough is to write a song in 7/8 or 13/4 or 5/4 that people actually want to hear outside of the nutty math-rock folks (who we adore). To write an honest to Jebez HIT SONG with an odd time signature is such an incredibly impressive magic trick, we felt the topic warranted it's own episode of ATTT. Of course our ol pal Dustin Prince is more than up for the gig, as he drums with the best of em. To the uninitiated, fear not. We get into what an odd time signature actually is, and help you with your counting skillz. You'll need them as you try to do the math on these amazing songs that burned up the charts despite them being quite difficult to dance to.

    Episode 392 - Top Ten Rock N Roll Storytellers Vol. 1 w/Nikki Kreuzer

    Episode 392 - Top Ten Rock N Roll Storytellers Vol. 1 w/Nikki Kreuzer

    Who doesn't love a good story? Add in some music and a catchy chorus and you've got what only the most brilliant minds in music can create - a great story song. Storytelling songwriters are a special breed. Many that write story songs in the genres of rock, pop, folk and country like to explore the darker, more tragic, desperate or downtrodden sides of humanity, to compelling effect. ATTT is overwhelmed to have such an awesome guest, and one who absolutely nailed her first ever episode. Writer, actor, artist, photographer and professional music encyclopedia Nikki Kreuzer was kind enough to drop by GoodList Studios to help count down the first of many volumes of those songwriters with an uncanny knack for putting great stories to music.

    Nikki can be found all over social media, but we highly recommend giving her a follow on the Twitters:

    Episode 391 - Top Ten Under-Appreciated Bands & Artists Of The 80's w/Frank Nicotero

    Episode 391 - Top Ten Under-Appreciated Bands & Artists Of The 80's w/Frank Nicotero

    To be under-appreciated is to be snubbed, to be left out of the conversation as to who is the greatest of the greatest. To be under-appreciated properly you have to be snubbed by the critics, the snobs, and even the lowly hipsters. You can't even get into a discussion about being snubbed by the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame to qualify. To be deemed worthy amongst die hard fans and little else is to be under-appreciated, and the 1980s definitely had its fair share of artists and bands that just don't get the due they deserve. Luckily for our listeners, ATTT is proud to welcome back comedian and host extraordinaire Frank Nicotero, who (still) has the stacks of records and cassettes to prove himself as an authority on 1980s music. He freaking lived it, people. Frank joins the pod for a discussion and a countdown of the most deserving bands and artists of the 80s that deserve praise and don't get enough of it.

    Frank is performing stand up all of LA and beyond. Follow him on Instagram to find out about future dates and whatnot:

Customer Reviews

Knrrr ,

good content

Great show, great lists, great host. Each episode is dependent on the guest or guests. Some episodes have way way too much small talk. I just want to hear the list! I don’t mind some banter but I don’t want to listen to your inside jokes or full conversations. The episodes that get to the point are the absolute best. Good stuff!

Excellent laid-back show for music lovers

I was looking for a creative music countdown podcast and this fit the bill perfectly.

Highly recommended.

My favorite podcast

Much to my surprise (and delight), ATTT has become my favorite podcast. A new episode every Friday, averaging about 2 fast-moving hours in length.
Ben Eisen is a knowledgable, articulate and personable host. He is joined by a rotating cast of co-hosts. The top ten lists cover all kinds of music genres and a vast period of time, including occasional trips back to the 1st half of the 20th century.
Making top ten lists is fun and I am always curious about what will make the hosts lists. The banter about each song is always interesting. The quality of sound production is OUTSTANDING.
I have discovered and rediscovered so much great music by listening to this show. I go back to archived episodes on mixcloud regularly also. What a treasure!!!
