Episode 21:  Pete Miser - January 21, 2014

Happy New Year to all our WDEK listeners. Things are off to a good start in the WDEK studios with Christian and Shonali both getting sick over the holidays.  We are having a snow storm right now.  Christian talks about story hijackers and Justin lends us his thoughts.  Parents think they are better drivers than their kids and that's a fact.  Shonali's mom sends Christian a special FB message.  Subway sightings include a dancer at Union Square platform and a man with a carryon and a tennis racquet.   Our special guest is Pete Miser, the legendary front man of Five Fingers of Funk from Portland, OR and a rapper who has released 4 full length albums of his own, while helming the board at his own Ho House studios in Tribeca. He's worked closely with Dido and Imani Coppola and is always making new music.  Pete comes bearing gifts.  This one is especially for Christian and his former thigh chafing issues (as heard on Ep. 4). Pete was a B-boy who started to rap at age 16.  He will fill you in on what's happening in hip hop today, and what's not.  Did you see the Indian dancing boy star on India's Got TAlent? Are musicians sellouts for putting their music in commercials?   Shonali is reading the Miles Davis Autobiography.   Sounds are a singular experience. You can hear them by just reading about them.  Pete makes his world debut of Hands Up 3.3 on We Don't Even Know!  Put your HANDS UP!!!!!

WDEK Rewind - Ep. 4 Highlights with Kenny Lienhardt

Kenny Lienhardt is a one of a kind individual!  He's the legendary soundman of the Bowery Ballroom for 14 years.  He is the host of the Urban Angler public access fishing show for 10 years.  He was the front man of the death metal band Black Virgin in the mid 80's and he was the producer of Tigers & Monkeys' recent full-length release "The Animals Will Forgive Us Again" and co-produced "Loose Mouth".  He is a character that you never forget.  He was recently celebrated in the Jan 3, 2014  Village Voice and since we are still talking about how much we enjoyed having him as one of our first WDEK guests, we wanted to share some of the highlights from his visit to the WDEK Studio in Sept. 2012. In case you missed it or want to hear it again - enjoy!  Some of the language is offensive, so turn down while listening.  Sorry mom.
