Episode 47 - Lie I Lie to Lonely is the Name

EJason and Jon continue on through the L's, covering a hodgepodge of tracks that include an early live recording, a Teargarden song, a potentially creepy love song from Mellon Collie, and some other odd songs from deep in the catalog.

Episode 45 - Catchin' Up

EJason and Jon are back after a brief hiatus to catch up on all the Pumpkin news that's fit to print!

Episode 44 - All of the K's

EMuch like last week’s episode, Jon and Jason tackle all of the “K” songs in this show, including: a studio outtake produced by Flood and Alan Moulder, a song that could be in a retro video game, a spacey instrumental from the Mellon Collie era, and a track featured in “Pastichio Medley.” They also talk about Space Mountain, “Tetris Dreams,” and receive some listener e-mail.

Episode 44 - All of the K's

Episode 43 - All of the J's

ETo bring the show to a good halfway point before going on a short hiatus next week, Jon and Jason tackle all of the “J” songs in this episode, including: Billy’s only jazz song (so far), a Mellon Collie track that almost became a single, three songs about Jesus, and two home demos that rank among Billy’s all-time best. They also try to figure out why Jason doesn’t like “classic rock,” discuss songs that incorporate voice mails and answering machine messages, and remember a spooky coincidence from the 90’s.
