Derelict Dummies #261 8/13/18 - The Dummies welcomed special guest Tara Hansen for an hour of cool tunes and chatter. The theme of the evening was lying and the group applied that in discussions involving one of the great bullshitters of all time; Donald Trump. They also focused on the lie of the American Dream and how our economy is hurting getting ahead and based on credit debt that is astronomical in the US.
Derelict Dummies #260 7/30/18 - The show’s first segment was a tribute to David Clyde who passed after a battle with cancer. The Dummies had a special relation with Dave on the 990WBOB airwaves and had the occasion to broadcast together. Some fun thoughts about him were shared, but having an empty Mic 1 in the room was a profound reminder of a great loss. Eventually the topics got political as The Dummies warned of the importance of the November midterms and pondered a President Pence scenario. Yeah it got scary. But then the show rounded off with a discussion of Lindsey Buckingham’s exclusion in the forthcoming Fleetwood Mac tour and as usual the smiles came back.
Derelict Dummies #259 7/9/2018 - Kris and Bob were joined in studio by Bill and Gabriella From Silverteeth who discussed their band and listened to one of their songs, but who also stayed for the entire show to discuss everything else under the sun; including the new SCOTUS nominee. Also guitar instrumentalist Scott Danger Bravo called in to talk with the panel about his upcoming Providence show at Mediator Stage and share a tune. This is a delightful hour of humor , news and music.
Derelict Dummies #257 6/18/18 - This episode, Kris and Bob attempted to address the border crisis of separating illegal immigrant families by grabbing their children away for detention. Luckily it wasn’t all about dire news. Nate Cozzolino from Lost Arts called in to discuss the four year anniversary of his Madcap talent review now featured every Mondays at Dusk. As the show winded down the duo discussed the president’s latest diversion - Space Force. Listen in for fun talk and cool tunes.
Derelict Dummies #256 6/11/18 - Well there was a party of a show for sure. The guys did an old fashion Dummies’ segment show starting with some views on Robert De Niro’s "fuck Trump" on live TV at the Tony Awards and a tribute to Anthony Bourdain who tragically took his own life (and some of our dreams). Next up was an in depth view of sand (yes like in beach sand) and how it has become an economic commodity with both environmental and criminal implications. The North Korean summit was discussed briefly as well. Then it was a special Ain’t Got Time for This Shit segment where the derelict duo was joined by WBOB personalities Ferro and Scott Rotondo and Buttonwood’s brewery owner Morgan for a lively and brief roundtable on the day’s most pressing news stories.
Derelict Dummies #255 6/4/18 - After many years of absence from the 990WBOB broadcasts, the Dummies pal Tovah stopped in studio for a visit and to chat about a few topics. First the group gave their impressions on the Star Wars box office flop; Solo. Kris and Bob came to defense of Ron Howard’s reshoot and felt as though the intended origin story was told. Then it was on to RI politics and the latest idiot who is incompetent but a hired political hack. Also national politics were discussed pertaining to the ongoing Mueller investigation and Trump’s “self pardon” theory. As always there was allot of humor and some pretty good tunes to boot. Enjoy.
Derelict Dummies #254 5/14/18 - The stoned ponies had in studio guests; Dave Laros and Vic Foley from the band Blackletter join them for some banter and performance of an as yet to be recorded song called Jezebel. Besides the intimate and cool song performance, the entire panel got into a lively discussion of the Hagar vs. Roth in Van Halen debate. As usual topics of the day opened the show with discussions on the demise of capitalism and what looks to these derelicts as WW3 on the horizon, but in the end time ran out leaving you wanting just a little bit more. Get out the earbuds and enjoy.
Derelict Dummies #253 5/7/18 - The Derelicts welcomed Neutral Nation drummer Stumpy for a few segments covering the history of the RI Music Hall of Famers’ long history. Not only did they cover the band’s various recordings and documentary film (Its A Bash) but they also listened to some exclusive tracks recorded in the band’s secret headquarters. It’s a love fest of city history worth a listen.
Derelict Dummies #251 4/23/18 - It was all music in this episode with guests Eric Shane from Eric and the Nothing and former talk radio producer Nick Costa’s new project What Happened. Two very different genres of music debuting their latest recorded efforts. Dummy Bob Giusti is the drummer for Eric and Dummy Kris and yet even mild roasting was avoided.
Derelict Dummies #249 4/9/18 - You all know them. Those stories you’ve heard for years. Alice Cooper played Eddie Haskel, Mikey OD’d on Coke and Pop Pocks and Elvis married Big Foot.
The guys go list hunting in this episode with an examination of popular myths from our culture. Nothing is provable and that gives these dummies a pure license to ill. As in all of their ponderous nonsense, the truth is just a means to a laugh. You definitely should put this on your earbuds at work and get paid to piss your pants.
