The One About Patriots Like Us

On this episode: Brian yells at the listeners from his front porch about how he is becoming an old man, Brian and Luke have a disagreement on whether there should be a remake of the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Running Man (there shouldn’t), Luke fires shots at CSI’s David Caruso, Brian has never heard of the great literary work Walden, Luke uses Brian’s trick of giving songs familial relations to other songs, they talk about Wilson from Home Improvement being a creep, the motion picture The Piano sends Luke on the subject of actors playing both parents and lovers to other actors in different films and Brian and Luke start a new segment called Patriots Like Us all while playing the eight best songs you’ll hear all week!

Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne bring you fresh new songs with the hopes of introducing you to some that you may consider to be the best song ever.  Both Brian and Luke have no idea what songs the other has picked, so what you are hearing is their genuine reaction to listening to the songs together.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.
