Episode 52: Danny Vermont

12Dec

Season 2 comes to a close with a whopper of a guest, Danny Vermont! He is a comedian and writer and you might recognize his work from "Real Time With Bill Maher," "Politically Incorrect," and "Pauly Shore's Pauly-tics."

 

We jump right into how Danny and Dave met...and then reconnected (without Facebook). His 5 songs bring us mostly back to the good old college days in Ithica New York. We learn about Danny's high school years, his first open mic experience, how one famous comedian inspired him to go to college, growing up with a mom as a school teacher and about the dark secrets of Los Angeles.

Don't think you won't get a nice legalized pot talk in there...plus, Band Or Bar takes us to Ethiopia and it's a doozy. Try playing along before you click the links. Danny's Guilty Pleasure is hilarious, and his First and Last Concert will make you sentimental.

Danny has a string of shows...keep up with him on Facebook.  Then make sure to pop over to the YTunes Shuffle Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep up with what guests are coming up and all the places we'll be!

Episode 51: Wolfie Trausch

5Dec

Wolfie Trausch is a Los Angeles native who started acting at the age of 8! He has since moved into the voice over world and when he isn't working as a voice actor, he makes extra cash as a voice over casting director and teaches seminars.

 

We dive right into his Fave 5 songs where we learn all about his non-existent musical upbringing. His parents were both teachers and made it difficult for him to ditch classes...but we do learn about the music he and his dad had in common and how he not only met his current b/f on Tinder, he is teaching his mom how to use the app too! 

The group gets into an incredible discussion about weed and edibles in modern times and then Wolfie shares a song that he started listening to because he thought his crush was super into it. 

 

We go to Croatia for this week's episode of Band Or Bar before learning about a really embarrassing Guilty Pleasure. Wrapping up the show with First Concert and Last Concert....Wolfie's story is sweet and really just getting started. He is not a character to be missed. Follow him on Instagram!

Then make sure if you'd like to attend our Holiday Party on Wed 12/13 in Los Angeles, but can't make it...we'd still love to hear your holiday stories inspired by the music of the season. Send us your song and story to ytunesshuffle@gmail.com.

Episode 49: Cassie Dang

21Nov

This week's guest not only worked as an entertainment lawyer, but now runs her own company, Dang Entertainment, managing comedians.

Cassie describes how she accidentally started managing comedians. Her first passion was actually to be on Broadway. Her mother is a Vietnamese singer and sang alongside her mother as a young girl in the United States. Cassie is the only American born citizen in her family and talks a lot about the family dynamics and respect given to her older brothers and sisters.

We share our favorite musicals and a few high school memories (Maggi and Cassie graduated Irvine High School in Orange County, CA together).

Plus, what kids from Irvine got into in high school…and it was surprisingly innocent…until her bff graduated early. Then she got into some crazy shenangians. Plus she was the person who threw all the parties.

And we celebrate a family member who is no longer with us but is remembered for his service and his long important talks with Cassie.  

Band or Bar takes us to KOS, Island Greece. Then we wrap up with her not-so-guilty pleasure, surprising First Concert and her Corner of The Internet.

Episode 46: David Interviews Maggi

24Oct

This episode was dug up from the archives and originally recorded as a practice run through on October 21, 2016 when David and Maggi were working out the kinks of the show before inviting their very first guest, ever!

 

You'll hear the co-hosts chat about some fundamentals of building the show and promotions before digging into Maggi's Fave 5 songs!

 

Through her music, Maggi shares the story of moving in the middle of high school after her parent's divorce from New Jersey to California and the kind of straight edge kids she hung around. She talks about a vivid moment in those iconic car rides between houses where her dad stepped up to answer a very awkward question.

She moved often in her adult life chasing her radio dream and she talks about her first morning show job and why it may have been the creepiest job ever. Maggi also skims the surface on the story of one man she really loved, and takes us full circle back to New Jersey and one of the most awkward moments in school.
