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.

Maggi and David were so intrigued by his Heavy Metal Fave 5 and really learned a lot about what happens when a service member comes home with PTSD and discovering that being Different...is a power!

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.

Episode 44: William Mark McCullough

10Oct

The actor/direct William Mark McCullough (American Made, Massacre On Aisle 12) happened to be in Los Angeles and made time to visit the YTunes Shuffle studios to share his Fave 5! We talk about growing up in a trailer park in Georgia and his drive to not be poor as an adult. He shares all of the crazy characters that lived there and what it was like being the oldest in a house of 5 kids.

He shares the story of how he was bitten by the acting bug and that before acting, his first career was in law! Mark's dad plays a special role in his life and in his father's passing, tv opportunities were knocking on his door. Literally.

Band or Bar takes us to Sioux City, Iowa. Don't click on the links. See if you can guess which one is which along with Mark and Maggi. His First Concert was amongst a bunch of "old people" but in the same evening, got scammed!
