40,000 fans on Pandora (and counting) - Thank you!

on August 09, 2013

For about the last year, when I meet new fans at shows, the comment I hear the most is some variation of "I found out about you on Pandora". I really, really love this, because, I too am a huge Pandora fan. A lot of the bands I listen to the most these days are bands I first heard on Pandora when I started listening five or so years ago. It's genius. Plug in a band you like, and be exposed to other bands with a similar melody, mood, musicality, or focus on lyrics within the same genre. Like blue-based metal? Black Sabbath can end up taking you to Graveyard, a great Scandavian metal band.

Porter Ridge coming to Discovery Channel (Duck Dynasty, more)

on August 08, 2013

Hi everybody, This year, part of the reason I haven't kept up with the podcasts I was doing, and, the reason I no longer appear on the XM/Sirius radio show, Naked and Fearless, is that I have begun also working as a Consulting Producer (basically, a guy who comes up with funny ideas) on several shows. Two of those shows begin airing new episodes next week. One is Porter Ridge, a new series premiering Tuesday, 10:30 EST (check local listings for times in your area). It's about a group of wild, off-the-grid guys living in the hills of Indiana. For a preview, and more info, go here:

Sketch comedy pilot I wrote for/appear in will air on The History Channel Monday Dec. 10

on November 29, 2012

Great news! The History Channel is going to air a pilot I wrote for and am featured in, Monday, December 10th, 11PM EST, 10PM CST, and 8PM PST. It's called "American Wiseass", and, it's going to air after new episodes of Pawn Stars. The show is a sketch comedy show with a historical emphasis, similar in format (and edginess, actually) to Chapelle Show. In this show, a great comic/friend of mine, Michael Loftus, is the star, the Dave Chapelle if you will, and I am one of the writers and sketch performers. If the ratings and the feedback are good, there will be a lot more episodes to come.
