Episode 122: It's "Go" Time!
Pat is joined by the second of his four new co-hosts, comedian Mike Siegel. Once this episode starts it never stops because we're playing songs with "Go" in the title!
From November 7, 2013


With your hosts:

Pat Francis

Mike Siegel
00:00:00 In the first ninety seconds of the show Pat and Matt talk about moving on, advent calendars, Breaking Bad, acid and citrus. So, just another focused episode from the boys in the NNF studios.
  Pat introduces the second of the rotating co-hosts Mike Siegel! Mike is a comedian, world traveler and host of the Travel Tales podcast.
  Mike reveals that, while he hasn't done acid, he did not cocaine once. He understands the appeal, but is smart enough to not go down the road because all the "Behind the Music's" he watched.
00:05:00 Pat is half way through Ray Davies' new book titled Americana: The Kinks, the Riff, the Road: The Story. He's enjoying it.
  This week's theme came from Mike: It's "Go" Time - songs with 'go', 'going', or 'goes' in the title.
  Pat like the cut of Mike's jib. According to Pat, the guy last week really stunk it up.
  Mike kicks it off with a three 'go' song: Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - "Going To A Go-Go" from the album Going To A Go-Go.
00:10:00 Pat sees Mike's Smokey Robinson and raises The Rolling Stones - "Going To A Go-Go" from the album Still Life.
  Before making it big as a solo artist, Bill Idol was in Generation X - "Ready Steady Go" from the album Generation X.

Pat breaks out the ASIA - "GO" from the album Astra.


The song is terrible and so is the video. Eesh

The 80s: the decade of horrible 'futuristic' videos.

Mike gives us the treadmill song: Ok Go - "Here It Goes Again" from the album Oh No.


Undeniably fun
  Next for Pat are the Raspberries - "Go All The Way" from the album Raspberries. The lead singer of the Raspberries is Eric Carmen, from "All By Myself" and "Hungry Eyes" fame. Pat "brags" that he has everything that Eric has recorded.
00:20:00 Mike brings a band from his hometown of Chicago: Material Issue - "Going Through Your Purse" from the album Freak City Soundtrack.
00:25:00 Pat gives us a d-d-d-doubleshot of Diamond Dave: Both the English and the Spanish version of "Going Crazy" (Loco Del Calor from the album Eat 'Em and Smile (Sonrisa Salvaje [translation "Wild Smile").
  Given his druggy background it's no surprise that Mike plays the drug-soaked calliope noise of Three Dog Night's "The Show Must Go On" from the album Hard Labor.

Pat calls the next fella the heir apparent to The Boss: Jesse Malin - "Going Out West" from the album The Heat.


Jesse Malin actually sang a song with Bruce. He comes into the studio to share his review of last week's episode.

  Former ABBA songstress sings her only hit. Here's Frida - "I Know There's Something Going On Something's Going On"
  Pat pulls out one of his underappreciated favorites: Rooney - "Go On" from the album Eureka.
00:35:00 Mike plays a ditty from former heartthrob Bobby Sherman - "Easy Come, Easy Go" from the album Greatest Hits.
  Pat doesn't like them, but here's They Might Be Giants - "Go For G" from the album Here Come The ABC's.
00:40:00 Pat talks about his experience with The Wiggles in concert.
  Mike's next tune is the one-hit wonders Tones On Tail - "Go" from the album Everything.
00:45:00 Pat shares his apologies with Led Zeppelin ("Going to California") and The Bangles ("Going Down to Liverpool"). Instead he goes with The Ramones - "Go Lil Camaro Go" from the album Halfway To Sanity.
  Matt is stoked with Mike's selection: Sly Fox - "Let's Go All The Way " from the album Let's Go All The Way.
  For his last song Pat plays the often played, but undeniably awesome song from Fleetwood Mac - "Go Your Own Way" from a little album named Rumours.
00:50:00 Mike shares his apologies with The Jam ("Going Underground"). Instead he lays down a track from The Replacements - "Merry Go Round" from the album All Shook Down.
00:55:00 Matt wraps it up with Lisa Loeb - "Going Away" from the album Silly Sing-Along.
