Kiss $902.30 Goodbye…the Sweetness & the Sorrow

The way those red locks of hair peek from under your hat to the glisten of your jolly cheeks. Swept under the spell that’s cast. One residual check at a time, he listens with excitement. Pure Tuesday night joy. I listen. And I yearn. For yet another $902.30 check. Yet no, stolen for not. For now he sits. Laughter erupting from the kitchen. Another beer can cracks. The fellow NC State alum bellows. I smile. He smiles. Tuesday night bliss. *written with love from Mitch like Mitch’s Taverns wife.

Great podcast!

Love your podcast and got started listening to you with your metro jethro special and have loved you ever since. Funny story I went to a show of yours in Maryville, Tennessee in May of 2014 and my little brothers got up to use the restroom and when they came back you let them have it, asking if their parents knew where they were and telling them everyone in the crowd was worried sick about them and I haven’t found a video of it since. But great podcast keep it up and come back to eastern Tennessee soon!

New Fan and Loving This Podcast

I discovered this podcast completely by accident and now I’m hooked. I came across a Jon Rep stand up comedy video of Jon Reep which left me laughing, so I searched for more, and I’m glad I did. Listening to YouTube and podcasts while I’ve been working remotely has kept me sane and Jon & Co. Made me laugh with their crazy humor (see what I did there?).

I love humor and the fact that, despite all the negative things going on in the world today, this show focuses on the positive. Mukbanging w Momosa, How Much is that SAG Residual Check, What’s in the Box, and Small Town News are all great but just the way the whole gang works together is great and when they grow in a music video it always makes me laugh.
