Pandemic Ed. 002- Brady O’Callahan não fala Português

Brady O’Callahan is back! Brady joined us to talk about comfort music, relaxation routines, and a lot about Brazil. Staying inside has been rough on us all so we talk a little about routines like exercise, coffee, and enjoying our record collections.

Brady’s first comfort song is Azymuth - Vôo Sobre o Horizonte, a stringed, synth-filled romantic montage of a song. He tells us about how he discovered this song and album at a small hole-in-the-wall record store in Rio, Brazil. We get into foreign language music, the instrumental feeling you get from it, and how it changes when you start picking up some words.

Brady has also been listening to Burl Ives - Lavender Blue. It’s a sweet, calming song that shows strength through its simplicity. And, honestly, we’re happy that it’s back to retake “Dilly Dilly” from those clout-chasing fools at Budweiser trying to get Old Spice Weird!

Then there's a bit of saudade for Brazil - Both Brady and Pat visited Traço de União in Pinheiros, São Paulo for feijoada and some music from Bloco Pagu! Small world!

Pandemic Ed. 001

Well, there's not much more to do during this pandemic than stay inside, listen to music, and record podcasts about it. Pat and Evan catch up on what they've been doing during the pandemic so far and what life has been like since the last season of Repeater wrapped. Join them for tales of couple-isolation, trips to Brazil, and how to lean into Spotify's algorithm. Subscribe for more eps during this time of downtime.

LIVE: Repeater’s Top 10 Countdown of 2019

At the very end of 2019, the Repeater crew invited seven hilarious guests to count down the top ten songs of the year. Comedians include Leslie Diana, Jordan Camille Randolph, Juan Nicolón, Milly Tamarez, Molly Kiernan, Peter Johnston, and Brooks Allison. Recorded LIVE at QED in Queens, NY.

Although we just lived through the year that was 2019, it's incredible to re-experience it through a bunch of comedians' favorite songs. Boy Brooks performs original music and we find out which song was the very best of 2019!

LIVE: Repeater’s Top 10 Countdown of 1997

Evan and Pat are back, along with seven special guests, as they count down the best tracks of 1997. Comedians include Kyle Gordon, Sally Ann Hall, Anjali Desai, Mic Nguyen, Ty Portis, Nanie Méndez, and Harris Mayersohn. Recorded LIVE at QED in Queens, NY.

Believe it or not, 1997 was a HUGE year for music, with everybody from Celine Dion to the Backstreet Boys and Matchbox 20 to Joe (?) hitting the Billboard Top 100. It was also the year we landed a rover on Mars, so let's give it up for 1997! These seven comedians pitch their favorite songs of the year and then Evan and Pat rank them, filling out the top ten list with a few choices of their own.

To close the show, Kyle Gordon performs some of his hilarious musical comedy for us, channeling teenage emo kids, Colbie Caillat, and Bazilian jazz singers.
