Hello and welcome to another episode of Blerd Radio! In 2013 and 2014, we took time to talk about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, its induction process, and that year’s crop of nominees. While there was talk about retiring the Hall of Fame-cast this year, 2015’s crop of nominees resulted in some of our most spirited conversation to date. Of course it helps that the gang’s all here: so join myself ( Big Money ), Dr. Z , Michael Parr and Mike Cunningham The Packet Man for an episode […]
About a year ago, we recorded a show discussing two legendary pop stars: Madonna and Janet Jackson. Then my Macbook died, taking the podcast with it.

This is definitely more of a circular discussion (with no real conclusion) than many of our other podcasts, but it’s an interesting discussion. Some highlights: -We discuss what made us finally decide to pull the trigger on this discussion, with a special […]

I bet you can’t wait until the deluxe reissue of this podcast, coming your way in 2035. With bonus footage!
(2015, Episode 4) Last week, I posted the first portion of our 2-part series celebrating all that was great (and a few things that weren’t) about 1990. While the first part focused heavily on film and TV, most of this second part is dedicated to our bread and butter-music. Here’s some of what gets discussed by Big Money , Michael Parr , Dr. Z and The Packet Man (Michael Cunningham) in this episode: The Milli Vanilli Lip Sync Scandal: And how no one thought it odd that people who barely […]
