Beats and Eats - Comedy | Pop Culture | Film | Food | Music | Nerd Podcast (general)
On this edition of Beats & Eats, Ty and Nick climb in the Delorean and go back in time to talk 80's music with Pacific Northwest recording artist Jonathan Friedman.  Jonathan talks about his new album "Pop Rock Overflow" and how the Reagan decade influenced his life and music.  You'll hear Friedman's two singles from the new album, "Jake Ryan" and "Crazy Beautiful." Friedman also shares his experiences opening up for acts like "The Smithereens" and "Firehouse."  We also drive my co-host Nick Gelso crazy as we talk the greatness that is Hall & Oates! The virtual lounge is open, put on that Members Only jacket, order your favorite flavor of Bartles & James and turn up that Walk Man to 10, your in store for a fun "happy hour" for the mind.

Ty Ray is out "on location in parts unknown, covering something." Ty was brave enough to leave the keys to the "Virtual Lounge" with Nick Gelso.

Gelso invited actor, Matthew Fahey, to attempt to fill Ty's clogs. Fahey welcomes his Hollywood buddy, actor Sam Lerner into the lounge. The two actors discuss young Hollywood, Indie films, episodic television and projects that they are now working on.

Other projects Sam has worked on:

  • Saburgatory

  • Monster House
  • Walk on Fame
  • Nobody Walks
