Friday 90s

Mariah Carey – Hero – Friday Nineties

Mariah Carey – Hero – Friday Nineties

So I am bringing Friday Nineties back this year and I have decided that I am only going to do songs that are 25 years old or older for the whole year.  I really want you to say: What?  That can't be 25 years old! Then you fall down and break your hip.  So let's start...

Friday 90’s – Man On The Moon

Friday 90’s – Man On The Moon

Hey y’all, it’s Jackie, back with another Friday 90’s! In honor of the December 17th birthday of my favorite bass player—and favorite Twitter follower—Mike Mills from R.E.M., I’m going to be recapping one of the best R.E.M. songs to feature his melodic bass lines.

Prince – Sexy M.F.

Prince – Sexy M.F.

  Prince died a year ago today.  I was ordered to listen to Sexy M.F. yesterday which I did and then I realized that today was Friday so it made sense to feature it.  And listening to it made me think of a really good friend of mine that I lost touch...

A Long December – Counting Crows

A Long December – Counting Crows

I forgot about this song by Counting Crows and since I am getting ready to move to NY and make Chezcadia my "summer home" (I'm very fancy, btw) I can't help but think of how many times I've moved.  It's not easy being Bruce Banner, always trying to stay ahead of that...

Naughty by Nature – Feel me Flow

Naughty by Nature – Feel me Flow

Nominated for a Grammy in 1995, "Feel me Flow" sits right smack dab in the middle of hip hop pushing its way into pop.  The song made it all the way to #17 that year and I can personally attest to its popularity.  My measurement is the tapes I had in my...

Friday Nineties – R.E.M. – Drive

Friday Nineties – R.E.M. – Drive

Political screed or motivational messaging to grungy youths?  "Drive" by R.E.M. could be either, or may be both.  Released in 1992 off of the Automatic for the People album, the song leads off in the first verse using the term "Bushwhacked".  That's why some people...

  • The Radium Girls
    You know how big companies are evil and terrible to their employees? Well, this is not a new phenomenon.  Join us as we learn about the Radium Girls. These women got good jobs helping out with the war effort except (big surprise) it was terrible. I know everything is awful right now and it is […]
  • The Lancashire Witches
    America learned so many of its terrible traits from England. One of them was the concept of: call a bunch of women witches and see what happens (nothing good). We had Salem. But 80 years earlier, England had Lancashire.  So sit back with some Yorkshire Tea and drink up the story of religion, politics and […]
  • Mary Vincent
    This show has a lot of terrible things in it. That's kind of our thing. And the story of Mary Vincent and what the scum of the Earth, Lawrence Singleton, did to her is terrible. But this story is more that terrible.  It is downright inspiring.  And when you hear it you will be amazed. […]
  • The Yuba County Five - Part Two
    The most mysterious case we have done in a while concludes this week with part two of the Yuba City Five.  I have been thinking about this case for weeks and I am no closer to a solution than I was when we started.  If you didn't listen to part one, go back and listen […]
  • The Yuba County Five
    This case is the most baffling set of events we have covered in quite a while.  Five men go to a basketball game and never come home.  Seems like it is straightforward but oh my goodness it is anything but that.  This is part one of two but honestly it could probably be one of […]
  • The Michigan Dogman

Night Watchmen, a local politician in another state, three girls near the woods, all of them running into a scary dogman. Join us as we get to the bottom of the case of the Michigan Dogman.  […]
  • The Hinterkaifeck Murders
    This week, special guest Hannah Selector and Acadia investigate the Hinterkaifeck Murders. Almost exactly 100 years ago, en extended family on a small German farm were found dead.

  • Al Kite
    We do a lot of stories about upsetting topics. But this one? This one? This one has to be one of the most senseless, terrible things we have covered in a while. Not that it will make you mistrust everyone you know and will ever know in the future...oh, wait, it just might! The story […]
  • Pedro Lopez - The Monster of the Andes
    Pedro Lopez spent the 1970s in Peru, Ecuador, and Columbia. Over that time span he sexually abused and murdered more than 100 little girls. The only thing more chilling than the crimes of this guy is what ended up happening with him.  Seriously you will not believe how this story ends. Join us as we […]
  • Sally Horner - The Real Life Lolita
    You probably know that Lolita is a book by Vladimir Nabokov about a pervert perving on a child. But you might not have known that there was a real case that may have inspired the author. The story of Sally Horner is complicated and tragic and should make you think twice before opening your yap […]
