#38 Christmas Show 2019
It's our Christmas show with music from Morano, Jason Bieler, Enuff ZNuff, Steel Panther and more! Our Christmas show was supposed to come out before Christmas but so many things happened we weren't able to get it out until after the holiday. But to make up for it, we have a HUGE show for you! We check in with four...count'em...FOUR of our favorite people and see what the new year will bring for them and what their Christmas traditions are. Duane Morano (4:00) is shocked he's on a bunch of wrap up lists for the year and hints at a second release soon. We call Ray West of Spread Eagle (27.04) as he's in the airport waiting for a flight home from New Jersey. They can't wait to get out there and play their new tunes, we find out Moose & Ray had a connection through a mutual friend, Anthony Fonseca, for over 20 years and talk about a possible Rock n BBQ podcast....? Steven Todd Barnett from Pump5 (46.06) shares the news about them getting on the Enuff Z'Nuff 30 Year Anniversary tour and shares a few of those dates with us.....when his phone isn't crappin' out! (Love ya Steve!) And finally, we get ahold of someone that everyone is talking about this past month....Mick Sweda from the BulletBoys! (1:18:03) He opens up about how the band came back together, how things are working out with him and Marq Torien and SAYS they aren't booked on MORC but I am not believing it until the ship sails! We would like to thank YOU for listening to this show that I lovingly call a trainwreck from time to time. If we didn't get the feedback from you we wouldn't be doing it so THANK YOU for supporting us throughout 2019 and we hope to see you in 2020! Stay safe and keep rockin'!

#37 Too Many Supergroups
Breaking News! To use their own song lyrics to describe it, "When pigs sprout wings and fly Then I'll come back to you". It seems it's official now that the original BulletBoys are reunited and have at least one show booked with Ratt and Lita Ford in Maryland. We discuss that show, and some others popping up that warrant some attention: The Ballroom Blitz, M3, and of course the 5 day boat party, MORC X. We play some new music by Black Swan and Shark Island, and a classic tune from the Don Dokken solo archive. We also talk about ticket prices, Supergroups, and at how many bands a person should be in simultaneously. All this and more on this episode of TMBP.
