Strong throughout… highlights include The Rhythm of the Heat and Biko (of course). Mike’s Recommendation – Riverdale A joint venture between the CW and Netflix, Riverdale is basically the classic Archie comic crew, with a hint … Continue reading

A Saul and Battery UPDATE

Loyal “A Saul and Battery” listeners will know Kelly has been promising a graphic to document the likelihood of survival for the super awesome Kim (and then we added the earnest Pollos employee Lyle as well). Here it is.  100 = certain death, 0 = alive and living large.  Mike and Kelly both make estimates each show. And a reminder… Mike and I will be talking about the latest episode of Better Call Saul “Expenses” LIVE at 9pm-ish Central time here:

That said, check out You’re a Movie, Skeletons In My Closet, and Who Do You Think We Are… fun songs! There was a tour to support this album (which Kelly saw) and here is pretty complete documentation of it … Continue reading

Audio is a little rough on this one gang.  There were a lot of Google Hangout issues and Mike ended up doing the show from his phone.  Sorry about that.  Way to phone it in Mike. Here is the Pink Lady and Jeff appearance … Continue reading

While a tour was planned, it ended up being cancelled due to Alice’s heath at the time.  This is a shame, because … Continue reading
