Podcast episode 319ish: Kyle Bottom

Here's a late one for you. But it's brand-spanking new if you never heard the radio episode. We recorded this one back in June but it's just now seeing the light of day in the podcast realm. Kyle Bottom made his solo debut on the show. We relived the time I busted his balls, he talks about doing a victory dance in front of Pete Holmes, discusses the horror set that led him to take a break from stand-up for 3.5 years, and he dreams about an all-heckle comedy show.

Aug. 4: Steve Bays

Steve Bays of Hot Hot Heat
Our summer hiatus is over! After a guest-less July, we're back bigger and better than ever. For tonight anyway. After that, we're taking another break until September as I go away and trusty manservant takes over the controls.

But tonight, if we remember how, we'll talk to old pal Steve Bays, which will mark his third solo appearance on the show. Last year, if memory serves, was an extend-o episode that ran nearly two hours (it was edited down slightly for the podcast). We'll see what happens tonight. We've got lots to talk about with the release of new recordings from his three bands: Hot Hot Heat, Fur Trade, and the Mounties (or is it just Mounties? we'll find out tonight, I guess). Can't this man stick with one band? Maybe we'll brainstorm some ideas for future band names. He's also a big comedy fan so we'll see what he's been listening to and watching lately.

As I sit here at the Hillcrest Community Centre electronically scribbling this blog post, the concession blasts a familiar voice through the speakers, although it's a song I haven't heard before. I ask the nice Russian lady if she knows who's playing. She glances down and responds, "Yes, it's Hot Hot Heat." Kismet, baby.

The show gets started at 11pm(ish) on CFRO, 100.5 FM in Vancouver. Outside the city? No worries. We've got you covered. Livestream the show at
