Secrets to a good relationship or How to maintain an erection
I said “Fuck” on the radio one time.It was back when I was working at WLKL 90 FM Lakeland College in Mattoon, IL. I was working a six hour shift at night, and my good buddy Marc Hendrill had stayed over from his shift to hang out. We started chatting on the air, telling stories, making up stuff to make us seem interesting. Then we put out a call for someone to bring us free food. We were poor college kids, looking for someone to bring us a free burger or taco.
Marc – “All we are saying is, if you own a sandwich shop or just made a pizza and no one picked it up, bring it out to Lakeland and we’ll tell everyone how great your food taste”
Brad – “Yeah. Anything will do. We’re starving here. Just bring us a fucking Sandwich…..”
Then I paused for a few seconds, looked at Marc in shock and turned the mics off and played a song. Thankfully, the program director/station manager wasn’t listening at the time. I panicked. I should have kept talking like it was no big deal, and then played a song. I was like a scared kid who accidentally hit a car with his dirt clod. I ran away.
Now I can say Fuck all I want, I’m doing a free music podcast. Sad thing is, no one is listening now either. OH WELL…..FUCK!!!

Rich Hall’s Donkey Ride to Hell
Hey how about this episode, I tell you about some books I’ve read recently or that I am in the process of reading? NO? You would rather hear me bitch about being treated unfairly by the man? No. Oh, I see you want me to make up some story about how Roy Firestone came to my house one Sunday for Football and how he got so upset that his Patriots lost that he vomited all over Jim Fregosi’s toupee? Not going to happen.
Here are some books I’ve enjoyed recently.
AMERICAN DEMON – Jack Grisham – Former TSOL front man writes a hell of a story with a nice twist in the narrative. Really good story telling, takes a well worn format and gives it a nice tweak. Good book.
WALKING DEAD Compendium 1 – I had started watching the TV first, sorry fellow graphic novel readers, but I didn’t know about this one much until the show started. Graphic Novel takes some violent turns, and some unexpected twists. I did not see Lori dieing in the prison. Good stuff.
SEE A LITTLE LIGHT- Bob Mould with Michael Azzerad- I’ve only gotten to the part where Bob, Grant and Greg have started touring a lot and are about to start recording their first record. Good book. I’m glad Mould wrote this, it’s nice to see a little bit into his life, I love his music and can only be curious how it was formed. Some personal stuff about his family and his childhood. Nice book.

Secret Colours Full Interview from 8/12/2011
Below is the full interview we did with the Chicago Band Secret Colours. It was recorded outside at the Cowboy Monkey on August 12th 2011. They Opened up for the Dirty Feathers and sounded really good. The guitar playing was especially good, Dave can really play some great chords. My only complaint was that the microphone was tuned down a bit and I couldn’t hear the singing as well as I would like. A good band and some really good songs. Listen to this interview with Dave, Tommy, Dylan, and Justin and then go check out their site and their band camp page. Good tunes, Good guys. Many thanks to Andrew from the Dirty Feathers for help facilitating this interview.

Pygmalion Festival to SLTM (The Podcast): “Drop Dead”
It came with some surprise and a little bit of shock this week that we here at SLTM (the Podcast) were told that we should not expect an invitation to the cool party. The Pygmalion Festival, which is held in Champaign/Urbana each year, features three nights of solid rock and roll. It has some big names, like Starfucker (Who are just amazing, I mean that last LP was brilliant) and some really good local bands, like our friends the Dirty Feathers.
Problem is, we asked to get in to interview a few bands and see a few shows, and we were told “Not this year, and probably not ever, but if you want to hold your breath, maybe you’ll get light headed and die soon”. Of course, we are just a small podcast from the Champaign/Urbana area. Just a four year old podcast playing music you don’t normally hear on the radio. Before that? Well we were a zine for ten years and twenty issues. So who are we? Well, according to Pygmalion Festival we are nobodies.
While we sulk in the corner and cry ourselves to sleep tonight, here’s Episode 117 of SLTM (The Podcast). We hope you like it, cause really after the terrible blow we received this week from PF, we could use some love.
In a terrible heap of tears,
Your Host Brad Bugos

There was a time in my life when I thought anything was possible. Want to own the Yankees? Easy just try harder and keep your goal in front of you. Do you want to grow a large penis? Easy, just exercise that baby and it will grow, grow, GROW. How about getting that foxy chick in Psych Class? Concentrate as hard as you can. See it, be it, Live it.
Now that I’ve reached a certain age I realize, all that stuff is bunk. Just a load of crap we tell ourselves so that we can make it through another miserable year. Don’t strive, don’t reach, you’re liable to pull something. My advice? Don’t wake up before noon, drink lots of coffee and hate yourself. It’s fun in here, won’t you join me?

In this episode you will not only hear lots of really good new music, but you will also hear for the First time ever Brad’s Karaoke song, “Turn Me Loose” by Loverboy. It’s not only spiritually uplifting, but if you listen closely you can hear women around the world tossing their panties onto the world wide stage. Good Stuff.
“I’m going to pack my bags and FLY, FLY, FLY-FLY” Genius lyrics. God Damn that Mike Reno has some pipes.
