Former Nets P.A. Announcer and P.R. VP Gary Sussman

January 14, 2019
"When I became a member of the team in the P.R. department, it definitely took on another level for me.  I knew these guys and I wanted them to succeed.  I was all in.  When you actually work with the guys every day and you know the team, the coaches, and the front office, it becomes a little more personal."   - Gary Sussman

All Elite Wrestling Breakdown

January 9, 2019
"There are more things in the works that they couldn't announce today, but Cody told us after the rally they are very close to announcing more. He kind of alluded to that being a television deal. The big thing that everyone is talking about today is the signing of Chris Jericho.  Cody said they could have announced other things but he wanted fans to remember that big moment where the veteran - one of the biggest names in the business,  gave the proverbial rub to this young upstart promotion. "     - Jon Alba

"Music is what brings everybody together, no matter what happens in the world.  If music is playing, it changes everything.  That's why we're doing this, and that's why I'm involved.  I want to bring joy to somebody, and that will bring me joy.   When I heard they were doing this,  I said I want to be part of it and jumped in.   It's not about record deals or or trying to please bar owners.  It's about bringing joy to someone else.  And that brings joy into our hearts."  - Eddie Testa

WWE TLC Predictions

December 14, 2018
"I feel like Asuka's just there to eat a pin. And it kills me to say that. Unfortunately, I feel like Lynch is going to drop the belt.  Now I think the benefits of this are that they're going to give her that Stone Cold-esque run that everyone's been clamoring for online.  I think she wins the Royal Rumble and she gets to the main event for the title. (Wrestlemania)  I can't see Becky Lynch not being in that main event.  She's white hot right now."  - Chris Demarco 
 
Tables, Ladders, and Chairs, oh my! It's time to make our WWE TLC predictions with the "Anti-Smark" , PopBreak.com 's Matthew Widdis and the debuting Chris Demarco of the Podcast Dummies Network!  We talk all things TLC as we look down the road to Wrestlemania!  Also tune in for music from It Lives, It Breathes!

Episode 58 - Brian Morelli & Jimmy Franklin of The Great Rock & Roll Time Machine 

December 10, 2018
"Being a big Springstein fan myself, I knew Steven Van Zandt did a lot of production for famous Christmas songs with the likes of Darlene Love, The E Street Band, etc.  I showed Jimmy Darlene Love's 'All Alone on Christmas' and I'm like, that's Clarence! The sound is so thick.  That was my model. I was like, this is what we need to re-create.  All the strings, the sax.  This is what this needs to be to emulate a Jersey Shore sounding tune for this time of year."   - Brian Morelli
 
 
This week on the Bob-cast, I'm joined by local rockers and friends, Brain Morelli and Jimmy Franklin.  The boys have played in a ton of Jersey bands over the years, and recently found tremendous success with The Great Rock & Roll Time Machine.   The fellas and I touch on the the local music scene and beyond, while discussing their new holiday single, "Show Me the Sleigh" based on Peter Frampton's "Show Me the Way"  Check out the new tunage here!

Episode 55 - End of an Era

October 24, 2018
"End of an Era never needed to die.  We went through of all these phases.  We fell into a lot of these little worlds.  It was very telling of our lives at the time. We were all in.  I think we got to a point over the years where our tastes changed, and our musical ideology was changing. We started to see the music of EOAE change. And I think it was changing so much that it strayed away from the core from what EOAE was created to be.    As far as writing new music and releasing new music, End of an Era is complete.  I know Spags and I still send ideas back and forth.  We still collaborate with the other guys.  But I think we need the freedom to break the EOAE mode and do something else.  Without tarnishing what EOAE was, that history, and what we have built.  I think that when we do move on creatively, it's going to be as something else.... "   - Jeff Wallace of End of an Era

Talking Biomechanics of Drumming with Dr. Nadia Azar

October 4, 2018
"The total number of calories a drummer burns is very individual.  It depends on your body mass, intensity of playing, your age, metabolism, all kinds of things.  But in general,  especially at the level of a professional drummer, drumming is an intensive activity. The professional drummers are right up there with professional athletes. I'm not the only person to show this.  Research studies have shown that drummers are expending energy at the rates of  professional athletes.  In particular, heart rate is right up there with professional soccer players playing ninety minutes." - Dr. Nadia Azar 
 

The Dr. is in!  We're talking biomechanics and motor control of drumming performance with University of Windsor Associate Professor, Dr. Nadia Azar!  Dr. Nadia talks about working with the likes of Mastedon, Primus, Dream Theater, Simple Plan and more!  Lots of fascinating information from the doctor as she also teaches me how to pronounce Kinesiology! Tune in!

Episode 53 - Hell in a Cell Predictions

September 14, 2018

"Ladies and Gentlemen, this match is scheduled for one fall and will include the ritual sacrifice of Jeff Hardy's body and possibly soul.  This is the match that they put out there where we're all anticipating a moment that gets played in video packages for years to come.  This is a great match for both of these guys. Jeff's 42 years old now and he hasn't jumped off of everything in the world yet, and he's still looking for more." - Matthew Widdis 

 
The BCP wrestling panel is back and we're making our Hell in a Cell predictions!  Will we see some title changes? Will this PPV live up to the hype? Will this be Jeff Hardy's "Swant-ton Song"?  (Credit MSD for that one!) Find out what Bill Bodkin, MSD, and The Anti-Smark Matthew Widdis really think about this PPV's actual significance.
