UsedWigs Radio 100: Team Todd

pod100--01-440

This is officially UsedWigs Radio Show #100 and officially our last show (tidal wave of tears). It was a super fun ride, thank you all for having us.

I want to thank everyone who participated, helped out and attended this Team Todd event. It was a really wonderful night, one that Todd would have loved.

Big hugs to the performers: Russ Starke, Heather Hall, Kimberly Hall, Dave Hill, Chip Chantry, Nikki WalterBrian Seymour, Rich Kaufmann, Scott Michael Shrake, Anna Goldfarb, Jon Solomon, Kevin Ginsberg, Brad Sukala, Lisa Starke and Bevan McShea for bringing all the laughs, stories and tunes. The tiny flabby muscles in my stomach are still hurting from laughing.

And big high-fives to Kell Andrews, Heather Andrews, Thomas Jadico Jr, C.j. Stahl, Brian Jacobs, Eric Smith, Colin Helb, Dan Eastman, Adam Picarelli, Kerri Foxhill, Geekadelphia and Cutesy but not Cutesy for the support. And big sweaty hugs to everyone else who was there and made it super fun. It meant a lot to Russ and Heather and me to have you all there! 

Alright, enough yapping, here’s the audio, videos coming soon!

UsedWigs Live Featured Video: Show Intro

Behold the intro video for the UsedWigs Live event from March 19, 2010 at World Cafe Live! It’s a stirring, behind-the-scenes look at the love and mutual respect shared by the three hosts of the popular pop culture podcast.

The short film was created by Ken Ryzner, an insanely talented Philadelphia-area producer/director/writer. Russ saved Ken from drowning twice (he’s a horrible water skier), so Ken shows his appreciation by making cool videos for UsedWigs and running all the audio and video madness for the live shows. Ken rules.
