Media & Entertainment Podcasts

After retiring from a 30-year, major market morning radio career, I'm often asked what I miss the most about the job. I miss 4 C's...camaraderie, creativity, compensation and, most of all, conversation. The Fuzzy Mic, built around conversation to develop camaraderie, taps into creativity, and who knows, maybe someday will lead to compensation. So, while The Fuzzy Mic allows me to fill some professional voids, it's my sincere hope that maybe you'll find something personally fulfilling in it too.

USMC Major General, John Admire

On Wednesday, November 10, 2021, the United States Marine Corps celebrates its 246th birthday. Our guest is a member of the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame. In a 43-year career, he climbed the Marine Corps ranks, working his way up from Infantry Platoon Leader in Vietnam, through 3 wars and 5 combat tours, to Senior White House Military Aide for President and Mrs. Jimmy Carter as well as Vice Director for Strategic Plans and Policy Joint Staff at the Pentagon, in Washington, D.C. under Gen. Colin Powell. He authored the book “Darker Than Dark” which takes us on the front lines of the war in Vietnam through the eyes of 4 infantry Marines. The book is riveting, as raw as it is touching. What's it like to fight in war? Probably not what you think it's like. You're about to find out exactly how it is during this conversation with (Ret) United States Marine Corps Major General, John Admire.

Alya Michelson: Pop Singer, Artist, Philanthropist

After a successful career as a journalist in Moscow, ALYA left her native Russia nearly a decade ago, for a new life in the United States. Turning to music as a vehicle for her storytelling, she chronicled her struggles and triumphs as an immigrant and evolving artist on her well-received 2019 debut album Ten Years of Solitude, and its subsequent single, "American Beauty." Now, the multi-talented singer/songwriter returns with her new single, "Pleasure Is Mine." "Pleasure Is Mine” is a steamy, sultry, and at times a symphonic midtempo expression of female empowerment. The song owes its inspiration from Russian culture, which ALYA hopes will help broaden people's preconceptions about her homeland and break down tired stereotypes.

This Week In Sports: TWIS 10/1/21

In high school, my dream job was to write for Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live. I loved Dennis Miller and Norm Macdonald in the anchor chair. As time passed, I let go of that dream. When the news broke that Norm had died on September 14, 2021, I felt a hole in my heart. What does all of this have to do with today's episode? Well, as I was sitting in The Fuzzy Mic studio researching voice coaches, not actually voicing anything, I got sick of researching. I decided I wanted to do my own take on Weekend Update, and so I did. From start to finish, this 5 minute segment took me nearly 6 hours. I did a shoddy read because I didn't plan on this seeing the light of day. So, why is it seeing the light of day? Because it was fun. It was fun to create. Is it funny? Your call. Is it biting? Again, you'll decide that for yourself. What I do know is that you likely haven't heard anything like this from me before.


Country Music Star, Dylan Scott

Dylan Scott had already reached #1 with “My Girl” when this conversation happened. It was recorded during a live Up Close and Personal Performance. The songs have been removed. Listen as Dylan puts fame into perspective, as he describes how marriage gave him a level of understanding he didn’t have while dating and as he reveals who it was that kept him in Nashville when he thought about leaving.


Country Music Singer/Songwriter, David Lee Murphy

You probably know his #1 single, “Dust On The Bottle” and his song with Kenny Chesney “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” that won a CMA Award in 2018, but do you know what other songs David Lee Murphy has written? If you know country music, then you’ve definitely heard these songs. Want to know what songs these are and who recorded them? Listen to David Lee Murphy talk about them and how he became friends with the guy who inspired him to pursue a career in music.


Country Music Star, Cody Johnson

While we wait to move into the new Fuzzy Mic Studio, we're sharing never before heard conversations from my days at The New 93Q in Houston. TX. Back in 2017, on extremely short notice, Cody Johnson was asked to play The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo filling in for Old Dominion who had to cancel their appearance. After that show, Cody has been a mainstay at the world's largest rodeo and he will open the 2022 season. This conversation was recorded during an Up Close and Personal private performance for listeners of The New 93Q. It was right after Cody signed to Warner Music Nashville and after he'd made his 2nd appearance at The Houston Livestock Show. Cody talks about his bull riding days, why he almost was arrested after his marriage proposal and he reveals his favorite venue to play, and it's kind of surprising.
