Welcome to Audio Spackle, the podcast that stands outside your bedroom window, holding a boombox. Join Christian Finnegan and a cavalcade of special guests as they attempt to soundtrack your every waking moment.
Listen to this song it will change your life. Christian welcomes writer Larry Getlen to discuss the music that we first connected to and the bands that effected our lives. Topics include Kiss frontman Paul Stanley’s stage banter, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Stoner Metal and waiting on drummers. Also, a look into Larry’s e-book Conversation with Carlin and Christian thanks some very specials listeners.
Everybody get down…in the dumps! Christian welcomes the one and only Janeane Garofalo to relive moments of romantic humiliation, degradation and, worst of all, indifference. Topics include: Ambivalence about being a Gen X icon, the musical and cultural phenomenon henceforth to be known as “Poorface” and a stunning rendition of the Up With People theme song.
This episode is dedicated to jukebox heroes the world over, as the one and only Todd Barry stops by to chat about The Clash, Diarrhea Planet and a thrilling game of Real Morrissey Song vs. Fake Morrissey Song. WARNING: The episode includes country singer David Allan Coe and his enthusiastic use of a certain word that begins with “N”. Brace yourself accordingly.
After an extended holiday break, Audio Spackle returns with a new episode devoted to the music we play to set the right kind of party atmosphere. Christian, joined by comedian Ted Alexandro, together discuss what songs enhance any gathering–whether it’s in a small studio apartment or an impromptu dance party at a funeral. Topics include: a very high James Brown on national television, Ted’s former job as a elementary school music teacher and what a LA coke party sounds like.
