(This Song's Just)
Six Words Long
This week, our friend and creator of Fest of Al, Raquel Hartzell, joins us as we discuss theories on why Al wrote this song as well as compare the two different, official music videos for George Harrison's cover.
This Is the Life
Recording a podcast talking about "Weird Al" Yankovic songs with old friends and our new friend, Spencer Parks? This surely is... the life. CUE SPOON SOLO!
Spencer Park's plugs n' stuff:
Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz
Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, a man who shouldn't need an introduction, but, in case you have been living under a rock, he's Al's drummer and has been the first official member of Al's band since the very beginning. Listen in!
Again, thank you so much Jon for coming on the show. It was unreal and an honor!
Joe Earley, one of Al's good friends from college, agreed to do a phone interview with Michael about all of Joe's time making music with Al while they attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Strap in, because we got some newly uncovered tracks for you die-hard Al fans!
Again, thank you so much Joe for coming on the show. It was an absolute pleasure.
The Gregory Brothers
This week, we get the privilege to discuss Weird Al with Evan, Andrew, and Michael of Schmoyoho/The Gregory Brothers YouTube channel! We discuss some of their past songs, their process of "Songifying" videos, and, of course, their love for Al! Listen in on some awesome tidbits about "Bad Hombres, Nasty Women", too!
Michael Hunter's 'Hamilton: An American Musical' parody, "Alfred Matthew Yankovic", pays homage to Al's life and has been ranked at #2 on the Dr. Demento Show's Top 10 List for March & April 2018 and ranked at #4 of the Funny 25 of 2018! Also, it was nominated for a 2019 Logan Whitehurst Memorial Award for Outstanding Parody Song!
