Joel Radio #15: Who's That Broad?

After Leno's big debut last week, it's time for the actual funny comedies to hit the air, and Joel has a rundown of this Fall's best. Is NBC's Thursday night the place to be, or does HBO have the market cornered on edgy sitcoms? Cory Hall even joins in via telephone to tell the world why The Office has slipped, Community deserves a chance and there's a CBS sitcom that's really good, and it's not How I Met Your Mother. Does Bored to Death live up to its title? Is Parks and Recreation surviving the sophmore slump? Listen to find out - you might be surprised. Plus, former show bashees chime in via email including podcaster admitting he sucks, and a mother-in-law basing comedienne that Joel's great.

Joel Radio #14: F.U.J.

A moment we had all looked forward to (or feared) took place this week, as the the new Jay Leno Show premiered on NBC. Whether seen as a savior of NBC, or a backstabber to Conan, Jay's debut has garnered strong opinions from many, including writer and former podcasting superstar Corey Hall. Corey gets out of his rocking chair to explain why Jay's return is bad for TV, why he hates Taylor Swift, and why he still hasn't seen The Hangover. Listen as Joel plays all the "highlights" of Jay's first show, including Jerry Seinfeld scoring big, The Dan Band overexposed and Kanye West actually out-douching Jay. Plus, Steve Sabo leaves the road to predict UFC 103, Joel's Beatles acquisitions make him a happy man, and Patrick Swayze dies alongside Joel's hopes for winning the Death Pool.

Joel Radio #13: Banging the Butter Cow

So the Michigan State Fair is gone - maybe forever - but Joel Radio has you covered and Joel and guest Harry Artin are here with all you need to know. Like Harry's crazy. Maybe you knew that, but his performance at the State Fair was nothing short of extraordinary. Feeding lemonade to the livestock? Check. Eating a disgusting amount of corn on the cob? Check. Receiving oral favors from a calf made entirely of butter? Check. You must hear this show, as Harry describes his wild behavior, discusses his future plans with a butter teat, and why he won't eat that much corn anymore. Plus, the guys see Billy Squier perform at the fair, and even five days later he's still probably playing a guitar solo. We discuss the the highs and lows of the show and pinpoint exactly when Billy's career went teats up. Also, "Beatles Day" arrives and Joel was too greedy to really enjoy it. Find out Joel's painful dilemma, get a full review of Rock Band: The Beatles, and much, much more on this crazy show.

Joel Radio #12: Day Stripper

It's well know n that magazines are in trouble nowadays. And if you read the latest issue of Rolling Stone, you'll know why. With a half-hearted Beatles cover story, and lamest, most questionable review section around its no wonder why this issue is almost certainly Joel's last. Plus, another magazine gets it right on reality TV, a not terribly sad nor sorrowful goodbye to DJ AM, Joel's song parody career begins, and a recap of UFC 102 predictions - a segment that will in the future be known as Joel's magical money-making machine.
