Episode 69: Dustin David

28Aug

We open the show with a quick "Maggi and Me's Mood Music" a segment where we get a deeper look into how our hosts Maggi Mayfield and David Earl Waterman are jamming on right now. Dustin David, comic, writer and performer, joins the show and we reminisce how our mutual friend Melanie Vesey (Episode 3) was just working on her stand up album.

Dustin shares the story of his life through his #Fave5 songs: How he grew up in Maine and the crappy jobs he had before he was a cool kid, what it took for him to get sober, his surprising time working with a burlesque troop, practicing for his stand up comedy album, Something Pretentious, and the one time he was playing cat-n-mouse with Morrissey in Los Angeles at a book store. Dustin also brought a guest with him, the lovely filmmaker, Vanessa. You will hear her chime in on some stories as well.

Episode 68: Zahra Ali

21Aug

This episode starts out with something NEW called Maggi & Me Mood Music. Both hosts, Maggi Mayfield and David Earl Waterman set up the show with the music that reflects their mood. Then we meet, comedian and actress, Zahra Ali. 

Right off the bat, we learn that Zahra and Maggi both grew up in New Jersey. She explains her hustle in Los Angeles and the show she runs called Facial Recognition Comedy before we jump into her #Fave5 songs.

 

She takes us through her upbringing with strick Muslim parents that didn't allow music in the house and how her mom let her sneak it in! She talks about when she first started having crushes, the one band that her family bonded over, how she handled not being allowed to attend school dances/functions, and life as a bicoastal comedian fighting the social norm. 

If you liked her songs, you can check out all the YTunes Shuffle Song Nuggets on her #Fave5 here.

Through his Fave5 songs, Adam talks about growing up and only child with his "SMother," what it was like being teased for looking like a member of the Bee Gees and how the led him to his wife, how working in a record store led to him eventually working for Elton John, and how he, as a parent, struggles with trying to encourage his kid to play music (and not use cuss words in his rap).
