John Prine “I Remember Everything” with Annie Keating
Annie Keating (singer/songwriter, musician) is on the show to chat about John Prine’s “I Remember Everything” and her new album, Bristol County Tides! But, before we get into it, a question for the ages is prompted—who’s hotter: Paul Newman or Robert Redford? When the dust settles, we discuss Annie’s pick, “I Remember Everything” by the […]
Zelooperz “ISBD” with Erik Garlington (Proper.)
Musician Erik Garlington (Proper.) took our prompt of “a song you always put on a road trip playlist” and turned it on its head! Erik’s song is the wild Zelooperz “ISBD” — a song he loves, but nobody else in the van seems to enjoy quite as much. Payback for all the Korn that gets played? Who can say! Plus a Repeater first of Evan & Pat giving their real-time reactions to this chaotic dolphin-sampled track.
Montell Jordan “This Is How We Do It” with Jerah Milligan
Actor, writer, and director Jerah Milligan (Black Mirror, Astronomy Club, Black Men Can’t Jump) joins the boys to talk about the feel-good smash “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan. The fellas discuss music that makes you feel good, Montell Jordan’s overlooked rap skills, and the one golden rule for karaoke: NO BALLADS.
Wheatus “Teenage Dirtbag” with Alex Song-Xia
Actor, writer, and comedy mastermind Alex Song-Xia (Rick and Morty, The Squirrel Comedy Theatre) is on the show to discuss the adolescent masterpiece that is “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus. Reaching back into our vault of past Repeater guests, we surprised Alex with Wheatus frontman Brendan B Brown! The episode begins with a discussion around how […]
The New Pornographers & Mogwai with Evan & Pat
Surprise! Here’s a bonus episode that was mostly an excuse for Evan and Pat to catch up. They revisit the conversation that sparked Repeater in the first place. “What’s new? What have you been listening to?” The guys chat about Covid, anticipating vaccines and their plans when fully vaccinated. The glimmer of hope for a […]
Every Time I Die “Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space” with Amir Khan
This week on Repeater, comedian Amir Khan (Honey Baby Sweetie Love, UCB) is on the show to talk Every Time I Die’s “Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space.” A song with a serious title! Finally!! Amir tells us what he loves about this song, how he discovered Every Time I Die in the first place, and […]
Lil Wayne “Mrs. Officer” with Kelley Quinn
Today on the internet! Writer, comedian, and Missy Elliot superfan Kelley Quinn (Straight Marriage, Eating Shit and Loving It) is here to talk about Lil Wayne’s “Mrs. Officer,” a song that Wikipedia says, “goes so far as to reference the famous rap song ‘Fuck tha Police’ (though in a literal sense).” Kelley tells us why she’s been thinking of Lil Wayne recently and shares a story of self-realization en route to a Rilo Kiley show. We discuss whether or not “Mrs. Officer” would be released in 2021 and Kelley sparks a lovely socialist dialogue about defunding the police, abolishing prisons, and medicare for all.
Marvin Gaye “Turn On Some Music” with Devin Gant
Welcome to Season 4 of Repeater! After a deep hibernation and a few bunker episodes early on in the 2020 pandemic, the boys are back in town with actor and writer Devin Gant (Young Douglas, I Ruined My Childhood). Devin brings with him a masterpiece in Marvin Gaye’s “Turn On Some Music” and the whole […]
Pandemic Ed. 003 – Ali Gordon talks Elaine Stritch & Sondheim
From the depths of Pandemic 2020, the Repeater fellas sit down with Ali Gordon (UCB, SECOND BEST: A D&D Adventure) to talk about Elaine Stritch’s iconic performance of “I’m Still Here” from Stephen Sondheim’s 80th Birthday Concert. With a background in musical theater, Ali educates the boys on several touchstones of Broadway, including the lasting appeal of Sondheim.
