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.
