The Stuart Bedasso Show
Award Winning Independent Talk, Independent Music and More!

Bitcoin is bullshit?  Who knew?  Our old friend, Mark, explains it to us.  Mark took a header off his porch.  Smoking IS bad for you.  The latest boogeyman? Corner stores.  They're the cause of all of our problems.  Not capitalism or poverty or inequality.  It's all about the mini-marts.  And all you liberals need to chill the eff out.  It's all part of the master plan.

Music:

Matching Mole - Starting In The Middle Of The Day We Can Drink Our Politics Away

Magic Slim And The Teardrops - Call My Job

The Mastersons - Anywhere But Here

Sleater-Kinney - Price Tag

MFC Chicken - Man Size Tissue

This show is jam packed full of podcasty goodness.  Brian White is back and that's a party in itself.  We also talk with our old friend Suzanne Monroe.  She has an Indigogo campaign going for her new CD.  You must go and contribute.  Brian is kicking butt and taking names at the Ox and Stone.  If you're in Rochester, NY, you must go.  We talk about Ferguson and gay TV.  This is a can't miss show!

Sometimes there's no escaping it.  There's a douchebag among us and you just have to deal with it.  Make sure you help us become radio superstars.  We're trying to get Rochester Free Radio going so that we can make the transition.  Give'em some cash and get cool swag.  Melyssa may even use her Sexy Radio Voice (tm). Now that shitty election is over with, what's next.  Dave has an idea and no one is shocked.

This week it's just Dave and Melyssa.  We deconstruct the artsy and the fartsy.  Whatever you do, don't follow Dave's fitness routine.  We take a listen to an old video that tells us how to protect ourselves from homosexuals.  Remember those old Love Is cartoons.  Well, these are definitely not safe for work.

Christine Green from Words on the Verge reading series joined us on the show and she brought donuts! Christine was here to talk about her upcoming event featuring our new, old friend, Julian Foster.  It's going to be a great gig, we hope you can make it.  Melyssa had a bit of a kerfuffle on the Facebook about Rochester Fashion Week.  And an old reference becomes new again.  Thanks, Kezziah
