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

A huge show with Juliette, Nina, Dan and Chris (oh, and Melyssa and Dave).  We talk about Fringe Festivals, Glamping, creepy celebrities and the ins and outs of working for yourself.  Did you know the Muppets song, Manamana, is really from the soundtrack of an Italian Porn?  (SFW) Oh, I will find this movie. We really had a fun time with this show.

Johnny Winter - Black Cat Bone

Ginger Baker's Air Force - Sweet Wine

Melyssa tries out some new toxic Doritos product so we relive some old times with some old bits.  Which gets us talking about what is humor in these days of trigger warnings and such.  July 4th is all about making up with estranged friends.  Dave may have killed diabetes...but probably not.  And we brag about our kids.

This show is pretty much a stream of consiousness effort by Melyssa and Dave.  New York State politics, gardening, local jazzfest, community radio and yes, Ewan McGregor's penis.  It can't always be about Dave's junk.  We also have some really good music along with a book review of a book that too expensive for any of us to read.

Fenton Robinson - Somebody Loan Me A Dime

Local Calypso Quintet - No Money No Music

Dave has his voice back and Melyssa has Scarlett!  Our newest TSBS buddy is a drum-playing hoarder who rocks.  Looks like Dave's gonna be on the hook for 10 Grow Boxes, but that's not a bad thing.  Melyssa's getting drum lessons from Scarlett.  We learn how hard it is to be a girl geek. Seriously.  Are family bonds strong enough to withstand evil empires?  Let's find out.

Dave, Melyssa and PRD are back!  PRD got fired from a bad job. Good riddance.  Somehow we start talking about old porn.  Go figure.  If there's one thing the recent murders in California should be teaching us guys is to shut the hell up.  No, really.  You need to let women talk about what they experience on a daily basis.  Shut up.

Music:

Big Gigantic - Let's Go

Jill Sobule - I Hate Horses

Sage Francis - ID Theives

Pete Brady - I'm An Old Cowhand

It's been a while so we happily celebrate the return of Kimmie P to the show!  We actually talk a lot about the media today.  NPR needs to save money, so they cut the daily show aimed at people of color. Shocking.  Dave has an issue with a local sports hack.  And we discuss the now nationally-famous Kimberly and Beck incident.  Good riddance is the prevailing sentiment.

Music:

Loretta Lynn - Take Your Gun And Go, John

Apple Pie Motherhood Band - Grandmother Hooker

Mariachi El Bronx - Revolution Girls

Drive By Truckers - Shit Shots Count

Nelcy Sedibe - Give It Out

No one's drinking on THIS show.  That's for sure.  Melyssa adjusts to new bed sex, Dave adjusts to 20 Minute Workout.  There's something to be said for a Carnival of Curiosities... like, save some money and get there early.  Dave is getting rid of iTunes.  You should, too.  Dave got to use his action slacks this week and they're going to be in action next week too.  Why does Goodwill suck so hard?

Music:

Desmond Dekker - Rudy Got Soul

Jack Bruce - Fields Of Forever

Ken Parker - Ain't Misbehavin
