We’re not ashamed – DJ Tony Scungilli & I definitely have a long-term bromance going on. The latest manifestation of this bromance has been co-hosting radio shows together. Last fall we took over Matty Dread’s “Soul Funky Train”, a week or so back we co-hosted the Saturday morning oldies show, and this week we took over Jim Mulligan’s “Mulligan Stew”. Usually we just take turns and alternate songs, sometimes we’ll talk about a plan for a set of songs ahead of time, other times we just wing it and play something that seems to make sense after the song that’s playing. The key thing is to have fun and make each other laugh (and hopefully you, the listener, too).
This was the beginning of a 2-show/5-hour slot, with DJ Tony Scungilli of “The Squid Jigger’s Blend” show joining me part way through this show after which we co-hosted Jim Mulligan’s “Mullgan’s Stew” show.
This show starts with a Gospel brunch, proceeds into a set of Soul/Funk Love songs, and later a Keith Emerson Remembrance and the return of “Fun With Fred’s Phone”. I believe it was the first FWFP of 2016 – oh, how I missed that feature!
Oh this was a fun one! DJ Matty Dread, WOMR Station Manager and DJ for the Thursday afternoon show The Soul Funky Train went on vacation for a week, so DJ/Chef Tony (Wednesday morning show The Squid Jigger’s Blend) and I seized control of the studio for Matty’s three hour show.
We played some crazy funk & soul and just kept cracking each other up all show. We certainly entertained ourselves and I hear from some listeners out there that we entertained them, too. Now I hope we can continue to entertain you.
