  • Pat would like to get some female artists for the show to do episode art. If you are interested just contact him.
  • For this episode Pat and Kyle are alternating letters. Pat wrote A and B on some sugar packets with a sharpie and Kyle drew the letter B. One thing is for sure, either way you will probably only like half the songs on this episode!
  • Pat and Kyle had more theater problems. They bought tickets ahead of time to see Thor: Ragnarok with the family in IMAX 2D. Kyle got to the theatre a little early and the doors were locked. The theatre had no power. They went home and dropped off Rita and Pilar because Rita wasn't feeling good. Then Pat, Kyle< and Ezra went to a different theatre to catch it. They both thought it was fantastic.
  • Pat and Kyle just watched Halloween 1 and 2. Halloween 2 features extra work by Dana Carvey. You never see him head on , only in profile, but you will see him if you are watching for it.

Liner Notes

  • Pat's daughter Ezra (formerly known as Sara) is the guest co-host for today's show.
  • Ezra explains why she changed her name. She is non-binary and the name just feels like it fit's better. She never really liked the name Sara anyway, sorry Mom and Dad.
  • Ezra is going to go as Ferris Bueller for Halloween.
  • Tegan and Sara are 37 year old twin sisters from Canada. They started their careers when they were 19 in 1999 and have 8 studio albums.
  • Their first studio album Under Feet Like Ours is only available on iTunes.
  • Ezra's birthday was toward the end of October and one of her gifts was going to go and see Tegan and Sara in the theatre in the Ace Hotel in downtown LA. The show was just Tegan and Sara playing keyboards and guitar. THey had an additional guitarist play with them. It was a very stripped down shaw where they played their album The Con in it's entirety and then a fem more songs.
  • Tegan and Sara credit Green Day, Nirvana, and Hole for influencing them to want to make music. They also cite Smashing Pumpkins, Violent Femmes, Dinosaur Jr, and Teenage Fanclub as additional influences.
  • On the Business of Art half of the songs were also on their first album. The versions on the first album are more stripped down.
  • Kyle likes 3 of the Harry Potter movies. He likes Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, and Goblet of Fire. He thinks that Prisoner of Azkaban is the best book but the worst movie. Ezra is amazed because she Prisoner of Azkaban is her favorite of the Harry Potter movies. Pat requests that someone record a sting for "Nerd Talk" he can insert here.
  • Kyle has a new video up on AOK The Punisher and His Mom. They are getting good numbers on it.Ezra isn't on board with the videos on AOK. Personally she thinks they are jus OK.
  • Lot's of crossovers this episode. Pat theorizes that it is because both he and Ezra have green eyes, they are tho first to get up in the morning, and they like to keep things neat. Also, they are both drinking water.
  • Rolling Stone magazine picked So Jealous as one of the top 50 records of 2014. It also sold over 300,000 copies worldwide.
  • The Con was released on Sire records which is the biggest label they have been on up to this point.

Episode 328: Thin Lizzy



Episode 328: Thin Lizzy
Pat and Kyle are joined by Thin Lizzy Super Fan Tom Neuerburg to discuss Ireland's greatest band! Apologies to U2 but I think they would also agree.
From October 26, 2017

Pat Francis


Liner Notes

  • This week Pat and Kyle are joined by guest host Tom Neuerberg. Tom is a Thin Lizzy super fan so there is no one better to host this episode.
  • Tom is a fireman from the San Francisco area and Pat's FBBFF (Facebook BFF). He lo NOT a hero (which means he is) and he has seen the beast!
  • The most unrealistic thing in movies about firefighters are the scenes when they are in a burning building and talking to each other. It's never like that. They are working and once you put water on a fire you can't see a thing. You can't even see your hand in front of your face if it's dark.
  • The most dangerous part of being a firefighter in California is working on the freeway. Everyone is driving 70 and playing on their phones, taking pictures, texting, etc. Tom has almost been taken out 4 times on the freeway.
  • There are also two observers in studio, Marry and Barry Giglio. They were action winners for Smile Train so have been in studio before. They just flew in from Massachusetts. They brought beer and candy and really don't know anything about Thin Lizzy.
  • Thin Lizzy has been Tom's favorite band for 30 years. There really isn't a bigger fan. He even has a Thin Lizzy license plate (THNLZY) that his wife got for him a few years ago for his birthday.
  • Thin Lizzy has 12 studio albums and the first two don't have the classic Thin Lizzy sound. They are more folksy/bluesy.
  • Phil Lynott was a black Irishman. His mom, Philomena, was white and his father was a military man who was just passing through.
  • Thin Lizzy released two different songs named Sarah.The first was on their second album, Shades of a Blue Orphanage, and was written for Phil's grandmother. The other is on the album Black Rose and was written for his daughter.
  • The Rock Solid Guide is back in action! Andrew Rich retired and Joe Van Overberghe (the 'he' at the end is silent) has stepped in to take over. The nick name "Joey Notes" is born!
  • They worked with a famous producer, Ron Nevison, on Nightlife. Nightlife is where the classic Thin Lizzy sound starts to come together. Eric Bell was replaced by Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson. Scott is still in the band.
  • Pat and Kyle had a run in with an inebriated gentleman at the ArcLight cinema when they went to see It.
  • Pat's favorite Thin Lizzy albums start at Black Rose. This is where there best stuff is in his opinion. Gary Moore joined the band as a replacement for Brian Robertson.
  • Tom saw Thin Lizzy live while they were on the Chinatown tour. Code Blue opened for them on Dec 19, 1980 at the Warfield Theatre. He was a freshman in highschool and went with a friend and his friend's father because his parents weren't into that kind of stuff.
  • For the Chinatown album they got a new guitarist, Snowy White. He had a great name but didn't have much stage presence. They also picked up 17 year old Darren Wharton as their keyboardist. Darren still tours with the band.
  • Thunder and Lightning is a heavy metal album. They picked up John Sikes as a guitarist. John really influenced their heavy metal sound.
  • Bose the engineers of some of the world's best audio equipment, including the Bose QuietComfort 35 Noise Canceling Headphones. Everyone in studio is wearing them.Bose invented the technology in noise cancelling headphones 40 years ago.
