The President of the Internet contacted me today to say Used Wigs Radio is no longer allowed to broadcast. I know, weird right? Anyway, he felt seven years of us producing high quality downloadable entertainment was enough and it was time for us to leave and put our mics, voice modulators and elaborate recording equipment on craigslist. We agreed.
So, to comply with the Internet, we are ending our show.
It’s been a lot of fun and a long super silly ride. When Russ, Todd and I started the show in 2005 there were only two other podcasts in the world, Beef Talk (meat podcast) and The Buffy Zone (podcast devoted to Buffy The Vampire movie, not the TV show). We felt like pioneers! Back then, only one of us was married and we now have 3 wives and 6 kids between us (four are named Olivia). We had a ball together, made a ton of great friends, chatted with many wonderful guests and spun a lot of killer tunes! Thanks to the good people at L’etage, World Cafe Live, Milk Boy and Russ Starke Studios (all three locations) for putting us up over the years. Kisses to Lisa, Heather and Kelly too for letting us have fun and joining in the nonsense. We are lucky guys!
The monthly podcast is over but we hope (and plan) to be back in the Spring for a couple big live shows (band, comics, cage fights, kissing booths, etc.).
It’s serious talk time now (ask the kids to leave the room): A million thanks and hugs to everyone who has listened over the years, came out to our live shows, gave advice, busted balls, bought t-shirts, and took the time to say hi or just leave a nice comment. I love you all for that and I love my little podcasting brothers Russ and Todd. They always made this cranky 63-year-old man feel young with their energy and smarts and passion and accents and hairy exteriors. Again, love them!
Please feel free to check out past episodes. I’ll be posting some good ones from the vault, like now!
Here’s a fun one with two of our favorite people Dave Hill and Nikki Walter!
