Goodbye, Todd

todd marrone

We lost our brother Todd Marrone last week, the heart and soul of our show and huge part of our personal lives. We love Todd and his family more than we can express. Thank you to everyone for the comforting words. Russ and I had the honor of speaking at Todd’s memorial service.

We love you, buddy

UsedWigs Radio Welcomes Geekadelphia’s Eric Smith and Artist NoseGo on February 21st at L’etage!

Mid-Winter blahs, huh? Yeah, us too. That’s why we’re putting on this super exciting show with two talented lads who enjoy tech, art and entertaining the masses. Come on out and have a fun, a crepe and some drinks. The show is FREE and we’ll have GIVEAWAYS! We just ask you to bring your clapping hands and your laughing mouths. As usual, this show will be recorded for our popular podcast that will be available for download and live forever online or at least until the Cylons take over and build a better internet.

The Guests!

Eric Smith runs Philly’s “Guide to Everything Geek” website Geekadelphia, teaches and lectures about writing and social media at colleges and universities, does the marketing thing at the mighty Quirk Books, writes novels like Textual Healing and most importantly, owns a custom made Master Chief costume he wears out on the streets to fight crime and get bagels.

NoseGo is a Philadelphia-based artist with a passion for illustration and media arts. He mixes fine art with a contemporary style to deliver highly energetic work. His designs feature an assemblage of patterns, vibrant colors and characters derived from his imagination and his surrounding environment.

UsedWigs Radio Welcomes Jon Solomon on October 18! Join Us!

If so, you are so in luck! Join us at Philly’s most fancy crepe-slinging venue L’etage as we welcome esteemed radio deejay and label owner Jon Solomon (WPRB, Comedy Minus One). Jon has been instrumental in promoting great indie music for years and it’s time we say thanks and also see what part he played in the subprime mortgage crisis that nearly crippled our fragile economy.

BREAKING GUEST NEWS!! Super special guests Dave Hill and Nikki Walter will be there, entertaining your pants off (wear clean undies)!

8:30pm – June 21st – L’etage – No Cover!

That’s right kids, we’re back in action at Philly’s most fancy crepe-slinging venue L’etage! Starting on the Summer Solstice (June 21st!), we’ll fire up the microphones and the t-shirt cannon at this handsomely-appointed eatery to record our beloved podcast. We’ll do it once a month. Each show will have super special guests, some who tell jokes, some who sing songs and others that dance with the devil (I have no idea what that means). So please join us and enjoy us, delicious food, both cheap and expensive beer, and maybe the most comfortable seating (since Fred’s Beanbag Chair Lounge) that your ass has ever had the pleasure to plop itself in!

Oh, by the way, this is a very romantic spot, perfect for making out! So bring your lover or brush your teeth in case you meet a lover during the show. Maybe Ed Lover? Or an Easy Lover, Philip Bailey is the co-owner of this joint (lie!).

Mini Podcast! Here’s us eating crepes at L’etage last week, scoping out the new joint, chatting about dumb candy and funny ladies and of course, discussing our new show!

Where has America’s twelfth favorite pop culture podcast gone? Rumors are spreading like wildfire in the AOL and CompuServe chat rooms:

  • Did Todd’s full body electrolysis go horribly wrong leaving him a 100% hairless and afraid to leave his bedroom?
  • Did Russ accept the touring bass player position for Asia (featuring no original members)?
