SOTM-229 – Eight Is Enough

Left to right: Tyler, Ryan, Kelly, and Cyndi

No, this episode does not feature the trials and tribulations of the Bradford brood. But it does feature eight live microphones, the most ever, and it does feature Spike attempting to keep the names Clark, P-Dub, Steve, Bill, Ryan, Kelly, Cindi, and Tyler all organized in his award deserving brain, all at the same time. We will leave it to the listeners to decide if he succeeded. This award deserving show answers the burning question… “Who among us doesn’t know what a doily is?”

SOTM-228 – Bad Brains On The Town

We had a wonderful time broadcasting live from The Improv in Ybor City for the sneak preview of Tony Gaud’s independent film “Billy’s Got A Bad Brain”. We understand that our signal was interrupted several times by the bad storms in the area so Joe Bourdow of tells us he will re-broadcast the show, without interruption, tonight, July 13th, at 7PM. The show will also be posted here and in our podcast feed in a few days.

SOTM-227 – Trojan Horse Show

This awesome show, that features no un-necessary special guests, starts out examining why it doesn’t win any of the awards it deserves. We discuss various plans to trick listeners into voting for us. Our first topic is called “Cherry Air Fresh For Dessert” and is about people who claim they don’t need to eat food or drink beverages. Next we discuss giving old people with money, the blood of young people who need money, in order to make the old people with money, feel more like the young people. Clearly another serious scientific subject. So we continue with a brief discussion of why hippos are so underrepresented in the sports world. Add to that a “Bee Report” and some “What’s Twending?” and it becomes clear why we never get the award that Spike deserves.

SOTM-226 – 72 Years Tall

Special guest Bobby Stonewaller Jackson

This episode features 2 lovely and talented guests. First the lovely and talented escaped former regular, Miss Marilyn, and second the lovely and talented Bobby Stonewaller Jackson shown here celebrating his appearance. We go from discussing the “Cornage Act of 1965”, to Steve weighing 1.7 times his value in 1982, to Brandon suing his date for texting. As if that wasn’t award deserving enough we throw in “What’s Twending” AND a “Bee Report”. As usual we spend the last few seconds of the show talking about our “special guests”. This was the best show we could come up with.

SOTM-225 – The Innocents

L to R – Kelsey, Roxy, Spike, and Taylor

What can you say about a show that features three lovely innocent young girls, barely out of their teens, out perhaps for the first time into the dark and threatening world. The regular Spike On The Mic Crew was joined on this night by the lovely and talented Roxy Lee, Kelsey Michael, and Taylor West. Three precious innocents as pure as the driven snow. Listen as they struggle to overcome their shyness and moral inhibitions. This is very possibly our most unsullied show ever.

SOTM-224 – Stuck In The Middle With You

This show could have been ordinary. This show could have featured just the lovely and talented regular inhabitants of the shipping container. But no. We went above and beyond. Not only did we book the fabulous #89, former Tampa Bay Buccaneer wide receiver Kevin House, but literally a minute or two before we went on the air, in walked a former cast member, the lovely and talented Miss Marilyn J, who nowadays graces the airwaves of Tampa’s own WTMP – AM 1150. We kind of rule.

SOTM-223 – King of Malapropria

Trish Leto

As our special guest this week is a female, we begin with Spike’s usual difficulties with chromosomes. Spike’s first feature brings us his definition of a word he can’t pronounce. Luckily his friends are there to repeatedly pronounce it for him. Various topics follow, like knuckle cracking… “Dear Spike On The Mic”… a pointless Bee Report… and the ever popular excuse to play “Papa Oom Mow Mow” – Dr. Captain Clark’s “What’s Twending?”. We eventually get around to interviewing our guest, the lovely and talented Trish Leto.

SOTM-222 – The Relief Of Pain

Mark Carr (@the1andonlyM)

The lovely and talented regular panelists, minus the lovely and talented Dr. Captain Clark who was away on sabbatical, were joined by the tallest lovely and talented guest we’ve had in a while, Mark Carr. We start by discussing the taxing of psychotherapy services, but of course that doesn’t have anything to do with strippers. But wait… this is the Spike On The Mic Show so of course it’s about strippers. Next we move on to a really shocking scientific discovery… that alcohol diminishes pain. We research this story for approximately 3 pitchers. Despite the fact we premiered Steve’s “Bee Report” last week, Spike asks him to do another one this week. We finally move on to the much lighter topic of unsolved murders (a laugh riot). As soon as we are about to run out of time we spend a few seconds talking to Mark, our special guest.

SOTM-221 – What’s The Buzz?

In addition to the lovely and talented Spike On The Mic regglers, we are joined by the lovely and talented repeat guest, Dominic Fabiscus, who dedicated listeners will remember is the inventor of the SlimJim, Lettuce and Tomato Sammich. There is a discussion about the inventor of men’s cologne, Elon Musk, and how he wants to put chips in everyone’s brain. Spike explains to Bill Schmotz that, try as he may, he can never punch himself. He spends the rest of the show swinging at and missing his own head. Unfortunately, this is radio. We introduce a new segment which will be used whenever we need to slow the show down and shave off a few listeners… “The Bee Report” with Steve. Apparently the gladiators, lions, and Christians are threatening to leave Rome if they don’t build a new colosseum with more expensive sky-boxes. It’s all explained eventually in this award disturbing episode.

SOTM-220 – Mark O’Polo & The Happy Hour

Steph, Spike, Mark O

L to R – Steph, Spike, Mark O

The lovely and talented Spike On The Mic crew gets together with fellow RadioStPete broadcasters from the other side of the bay, the lovely and talented hosts of the “Mark O Radio Happy Hour Show”, Steph and Mark. We were disappointed to learn that Mark’s last name is not from the famous Irish/Italian O’Radio clan. With only 60 minutes available, there were a number of topics we were unable to cover and, unfortunately, the long awaited topic of “Pink Rubber Bath Mats” was among those. Never-the-less this particular show will stand out in the pantheon of shows which, however deserving, did not actually win an award.
