Welp… that’s a wrap. We didn’t quite make it to 250 episodes, and we didn’t quite make it to five years, but that’s how life goes sometimes. Who would have guessed when we started the show that Kevin would be heading off to New York City and Taylor would be heading to Los Angeles? …I mean, I suppose you probably could have made an educated guess. Nevertheless!

We hope you have enjoyed the show whether you listened to one ep or every ep (god save your poor soul). Please know we telepathically heard every time you yelled at your listening device when we got something wrong. You guys yell a LOT!

To absolutely everyone involved in making this show – producers, guests, designers, photographers, bandmates and listeners – THANK YOU.

And now we present The End.

Love!

-Taylor & Kevin

Take a trip down to Miami, Florida with us for sex, laughter and friendship!

We were incredibly thrilled to have radio superstar Pat Byrne drop by our makeshift Brooklyn studios to talk about his love of Bruce Springsteen. His show on WFMU, “Prove It All Night” is named after a song by The Boss, for goodness sake, and the Jersey kid had stories galore, including that one time he drove up to Max Weinberg’s house.

Listen in and then tune your computers to Jersey’s own WFMU every Saturday night as Pat takes over the airwaves from 9pm-12am ET, and hear Pat produce The Best Show with Tom Scharpling every Tuesday night, also from 9pm-12am ET!
