You read that right; this episode features BRAND NEW interviews with RINGO STARR and rock icon TODD RUNDGREN!
First: Ringo has just kicked off his latest All Starr Band tour (which features Todd) in Las Vegas, where he calls in from. The former Beatle talks about what it was like being in Vegas when the recent shooting attack happened, and weighs in on the gun culture in America. We also talk about the genesis of some of the songs on his new album Give More Love, AND he gives hints about what the next new Beatles releases might be!
Then: Todd (“Hello It’s Me”, “I Saw the Light”, “Can We Still Be Friends”) talks about what it’s like working with Ringo; how Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell LP came to be (Rundgren produced it); his old band UTOPIA; drug use and the rock and roll lifestyle; Jerry Lewis (!); and his new album White Knight and his upcoming solo tour!
This show is fascinating, funny, loaded with music, and….yes….JAM PACKED!

Despite not being in a very funny frame of mind due to world events, Tony and Gary (and Rob!) sure find a lot of laughs in the topics covered on this episode! Those include: “Since We Last Saw You”; an update on Jemima; Rob’s improving fortunes; Tony at Cagezilla; and Gary’s real estate dilemma.
PLUS: Music from Stevie Ray Vaughn, Black Eyed Peas, Paul McCartney, Kelly Clarkson, and….David Hasselhoff! We think you’re going to laugh yourself silly!
This one’s a wild one, as the guys all chime in with recent crazy events in their lives: Gary encounters an over-sharing neighbor; Rob has to help his dog with a sticky situation; and Gary makes a new friend with an amazing name!
Plus, we share some of our favorite bits from the last couple of years, including a disturbing encounter with toe fungus, a memorable job audition for Tony and Gary, and a truly bizarre “What Were They Thinking?”!
