We welcome Scott Compton back to the show as we geek out over the classic rockumentary, This is Spinal Tap! In the spirit of rock and roll, this episode’s Play this, Not That features Mötley Crüe. There is also a new Remember That Song, and the ’80s Trivia is still up for grabs. Come give us a listen as we walk that fine line between stupid and clever.
Also, feel free to email us your thoughts about Spinal Tap, or anything 80s. We would love to hear from you! We can be reached at email@example.com.
Enough of my yakkin’. Whaddaya say? Let’s boogie!
– Welcome back, Scott Compton
– We had somebody scheduled to sit in the 4th chair, but he is no longer with us. The official explanation is that he choked on vomit. We just don’t know whose.
– Tesla talk
Shall We Play a Game?
Remember That Song
Last Song: “Sentimental Street” by Night Ranger
I know what you’re thinking / Cause I’ve been there myself / I’ve
been kicked so many times / I don’t know nothing else / Still I noticed your urgency / I recognized the flair / That you got from chasing all those East coast dares
Winner: James Herington
New Song: But I know the neighborhood / The talk is cheap, but the story is good / And tales grow taller on down the line
What brokerage firm’s name, when mentioned in TV ads, silenced entire rooms of people?
Play This, Not That
Instead of “Smokin’ in the Boys Room”
Play “Live Wire”

Spinal Tap was and is awesome. It’s amazing how well it still holds up today.

Yes, it was ahead of its time. I still laugh through the whole movie.
When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen.
