The Sound of Young America's Oscar Live-Blog


3:52 PM: I decide not to watch the Oscars.

All-staff meeting


Wow, this SNL "digital short" is hilarious. I've heard great things about this past Saturday's show... I'd better get on that.

And speaking of links, a listener posted a link to Nick's commentary on The Office on the forums at Television Without Pity this week, and hundreds of people followed that link here. Similarly, a listener sent the link to our Jackson Publick show to some blogs who cover the animation and comics world, and it had a similar effect. Often our biggest referrers come from unlikely places -- for a long time we were geting a lot of referrals from the "miscellany" section of a board about import car tuning.

I think a lot of our shows are of interest to people who don't already listen to the show. You can help connect the dots. I post the show in a couple of places where I'm a known quantity, but a third party reccomendation from you will mean a lot to anyone who receives it. Please share show links on your blogs, livejournals, myspace pages, and favorite forums. And if you know a blogger who would enjoy a particular episode, let them know. You can always find the permalink to a blog item by click on the posting date at the bottom of the entry.

I give away the show for free (and license it to allow sharing) in large part to help people share it. So go for it!

Podcast: The College Years: Go On Home You Foreign Communist! and Perhaps It's Love


The College Years is a look deep into the vaults of The Sound of Young America. Take a journey with us every week as we post a new program or two from our salad days.

This week, two new love-themed episodes from years ago. First, the show is graced by a soulful deportation anthem as Jordan tries to start the "Choo Choo!" craze. On "Perhaps It's Love", Jesse tries his hand at radio acting with star Jimmy Rogers while Jordan and Gene have a tag-team date in which they fail to get the girl but succeed with Billy Dee Williams.
