The Stuart Bedasso 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 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

We are back!  After a hiatus due to Dave's sticking it to the man, we are back with great and weird music, stories and more.  Dave get's arrested while Melyssa is off to fancy galas.  Rich people giving away money is weird.  Dave going to a mall to look at colleges is weird.  Dave and Melyssa in the liner notes of Dana Countryman's new album isn't weird, it's rad!  Dig it!
