    S05E33 - Bad Advice Part 4

    S05E33 - Bad Advice Part 4

    Rounding out the storytime - "Read to me again from the book of bad ideas!" - we focus on emotional issues: ignoring the warnings, being happy when maybe a bit of worry is warranted, and bottling it all up because Melissa Manchester turns out to have difficulty putting together a good pep talk. We hope you enjoy the last chapter of Bad Advice (from Good Songs)

    S05E30 - Bad Advice Part 1

    We have fun with good songs that have bad ideas. Take these completely unseriously and have a laugh when Smokey Robinson and the Miracles suggest relationships aren't for you, or Stephen Stills goes the opposite direction and tells you to have all kinds of intimate relations with whoever's on hand.

Trentonius Maximus, huh? 😉

These guys are cute and consistent. They’ve been around a while now but continue to keep things moving by varying the songs and styles they highlight. I wish them the very best.

Rock Talk with a Positive Note

Steve Atkins is The Limey, and Blake Bennett is The Yank. They talk about rock & roll they love, with lots of humor, and debate whose music is better. It says Parental Advisory, but it's pretty tame. They know a lot about music, and it's fun to remember (or hear new stuff) when they play snippets of songs.
