04 Jun Jimmy Buffett
This week the Summer of Rad continues as Kyle, Matthew, Producer Natalie and Laura get wasted away in Marga-rad-aville with good friend/evil podcast rival Adam Murray. Despite broken promises of boats, the gang gathers around Adam’s pool with his dog Ludo, tiki margaritas and Burger King cheeseburgers in paradise to reminisce on Adam’s love of Jimmy Buffett. Adam talks about his childhood memories and his Parrothead parents who spend their summers in Key West, Florida. Kyle talks about his love of Florida novelist Carl Hiaasen and his experience seeing The Buff-Man and Nine Inch Nails on the same day, on the same stage at Bonnaroo. Burnside cites his complaint that Jimmy Buffett sounds like kids music for adults. But at least everyone agrees that Margaritaville restaurants are great. Plus: Tropical Christmas albums! Ambient outdoor sound! And our thoughts on the new Ghostbusters! Do you know where you-a gonna go when the Rad-cano blows? This episode is sponsored by Mack Weldon’s fine men’s underwear and more.
