Today it's the return of the much-loved feature MIKE ON MOBILE where we go to another dog park and talk to a random interesting individual. Plus we'll hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!

We had a little earthquake on Tuesday in the Bay Area near my job where I saw a bunch of local news vans parked in front of a 7 Eleven--they had their antennae up high. Then I saw they were interviewing the cashier guy since he was awake when it happened and it didn't hurt he had lots of energy drinks to buy AND there's an awesome donut store next door. TV people are basically cops that don't carry guns. I felt the earthquake. Mainly it made a loud thump. Then my next door dogs were barking. Basil could care less. I had another hour half to sleep so we got right back to it. California is so much fun.

Next show it's the return of the much-loved segment MATTHEWS NEWS where we'll hear some interesting stuff you didn't know about the world of parenting and the Internet. Plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

Today it's the return of the much-loved segment WOW SCHATZ WOW where we look at an odd activity that has become increasingly popular lately at college campuses. Plus we hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

Have you had this particular strange thing happen to you where someone forces a video from You Tube on your senses because they think it's something incredibly good only to have you sit there going why did I just watch this you fool? That's basically all that Facebook is anymore: Watch this! Read this! We've become a society of culture pushers. I kinda miss the days where people would suggest things to you and then you could politely ignore them. Now the videos people are pushing on Facebook PLAY even if you don't want them to! It's like you know what song you'd really like? That wrecking ball song. No that's oka--YOU CAME IN LIKE A WRECKING BALL...!!! Arg.

Today it's the return of the much-loved feature INTO AN INTERVIEW where we'll hear from JOE MARKERT of the wonderful BERKELEY band CURE FOR GRAVITY who will be celebrating my 902nd "effizode" and playing me their new song for the first time. Yes, it will be the first time it's heard ANYWHERE on the Internet or the UNIVERSE for that matter! Plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

Out of the kindness of my heart and my love for radio I hosted for six months a morning show for absolutely free which is ridiculous I know. This past weekend they had to let me go. I guess I had to be a prima donna and put my foot down and say, Hey, this seems to me to be kinda a lot of work that I'm doing for ABSOLUTELY FREE! There's another Internet radio station I do a show for but they make it EXCEEDINGLY EASY to do. In a perfect world, DJ's would ALWAYS BE PAID no matter if it was for an Internet radio station or for an upstart. But somewhere along the line things went from bad to worse for radio people. So if you run a station and have DJ's do shows for you for free do me a favor and treat your DJ's with a TON of respect since you're not giving them coin. You know you're already USING people with what you do. You gotta make up for your impending crappy Karma some how.

Today it's the return of the much-loved news feature NEWS RANDOM where we look at an interesting story about how our language is changing thanks to the contribution of women! Plus we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley.

I was recently compared to another podcast. One that is not where I am on the podcast charts which is last. It's a show called Comedy Bang Bay and it's got sass. I just know the TV show but I got tired of that pretty fast. I guess all contemporary comedy has to be gross out in order to be funny. Maybe then I should get you to laugh by killing a bunny. Thanks South Park for making so much money off the frat humor of the white under 35 boys of America. Oh, but it's cutting humor about current events. Right, okay, you're so right. I agree passing gas is a current event. That's why you should leave the room.

Today it’s the FINALE of my CASSETTE CUBBYHOLE Matthews Interview from 2000 with the famous Country music band SHENANDOAH’s lead singer MARTY RAYBON! Plus we hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, Madame Rootabega, Valentino, Bison Bentley, and the Brewmaster FOR THE 900TH SHOW!

Here we are at the 900th show! We'll be at the 1000th here before you know. When this started I was still married. Why did I bring that up? Oh! That was my little mid-anniversary-song moan. And all the musicians and singers I have interviewed over all this time. And despite drinking the Brewmaster's rootbeer I'm fine. Except for the memory loss. What were we talking about? I like eggs, Howard. Enjoy this 900th "effizode" and please enjoy one of the complimentary balloons. They were generously and unknowingly donated by the McKenzie family at Chucky Cheese.

Today, it's ANOTHER new edition of the fabulous feature THE CASSETTE CUBBYHOLE where we listen to another cool interview I did with a famous Country music singer, MARTY RAYBON, the lead singer of the legendary Country band SHENANDOAH! Plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

Now that my commute is a little over 30 minutes away driving city streets and suburbia every day I have developed a hate for people that get in your way and drive 2 miles an hour--thank god I don't take the freeway. I would have all green lights if it wasn't for those darn left-turners crossing my intersections. But I embrace life with all its imperfections, and the current Amy Schumer overload. Yes, we realize you're beautiful despite you not having the Hollywood-run-of-the-mill-starved-to-death look, Amy. You make us laugh even when you're not trying. THAT's talent. And why are we suddenly defending Uber, Republicans? Have you guys actually tried to work for Uber? Or have you paid the exorbitant surge pricing rates? Hopefully when you're driving in an Ubermobile they go faster than 2 miles per hour.

I am having such a difficult time and just cannot mask it: I cannot figure out those toilet seat gaskets where this thin tiny rice paper must attach to your planet, I mean your hiney. Can you name the hiney-planet, Janet? What, your name's not Janet? My NSA info is off. Where's Ayn Rand Paul when you need him to try to stop all the liberal injustices in our world? Still he has better hair than Trump. Even I have better hair than Trump and I'm bald.

Today it’s the return of a segment that we have not had in OVER A YEAR! It’s called the CASSETTE CUBBYHOLE where I’ll be playing back a MATTHEWS INTERVIEW with the very popular COUNTRY singer CRAIG MORGAN when he first debuted. Plus we hear from Benita, the Disgruntled Fiddle Player, and the Brewmaster!

So this past weekend there was Comic Con for all the nerds to take their contacts out and put their glasses on. Let's face it, half the movies will be in theaters for a week and then gone. I've been disappointed so much I see no reason for me to long to be in San Diego for this over-hyped event. Lots of TV shows get panels where many tedious hours are spent hearing writers talk about character arcs that are just another way of saying, "How can we fill up 24 one-hour episodes with meaningless pap?" You know behind the scenes at Comic Con it's debauchery with cos players and lower level sci fi bit actors. And meanwhile San Diego laughs all the way to the bank.

Today it’s the return of the much loved feature THE MIKELOPEDIA INSANICA about what you really need to keep in mind in your crazy-tech life. Plus we hear from Chely Shoehart, Floyd the Floorman, and John Deer the Engineer!

I have been working for about a month or so at a radio station that carries all Christian talk shows and most are uplifting. Some are slightly scary, though. Like this one guy who's on who hates Democrats, gays, and people with fro's. Yeah, he's so bad the station only carries a half-hour of his one hour program. He hates our president because he's black and that makes me go damn, this guy needs to be replaced with a nice preacher with grace. Whether you're religious or not, grace is always something good to have. I think the right-wing nut probably could use a couple buckets of it!

Today it’s the FINALE of my MIKE ON MOBILE from the podCastro Valley Dog Park and my interesting conversation with the fascinating Katy! Plus we hear from Madame Rootabega, Valentino, and Bison Bentley!

So I was talking to a friend about texting behavior and how it's different depending on how old your are. The younger folk text back very seldom because they're far more interested in telepathically speaking with the stars. That's why they're called Millennials, right? They're from another dimension? In other news Doctor Who's at the Comic Con convention. Or they WERE there. It was all about they're stupid LEGO game. I loved LEGO's as a kid, but I don't like mixing my bizarre British sci-fi with blocky children's video games. Anyway, Millennials knew what I was going to say just then before I said it. Because of the ESP...or was it the ESPN. I can never get the hang of that.
