“A Soundtrack For A Bad Hair Day (Part 3)”

Just because we know you didn’t expect it, we decided to come back with a special all music extravaganza to wrap up our big nostalgia trip for the podcast! In late 2013 Bad Hair Day (Parts #1 & 2) featured a plethora of tuneage which paid tribute to three decades past. But since most of the songs were not played in their complete versions, we have compiled several select tracks here in their entirety to form the soundtrack for the true 80’s fan we know is in you!

Once again we provide you, our dedicated listener, with FREE quality music which you may just deem worthy of several repeat listens (& we suggest will make a great travel companion on your portable player of choice)!

So we need to send a BIG thanks to all of our musical contributors. Besides our Gunkcast regulars (Curmudgeon & The Gunk U.K.), we could not have done these episodes without generous offerings from the likes of Letter SeventeenThe Negligible NukesStuart Chaseman, The Basement Lights, The Flat-U-Ants, Byron’s wife—Maggie Mae, & Phil ‘Fingers M’Kracken’! Also please check out more great music you can find from these musicians on the web (from the previous links). 

But now we hear Byron has arrived back in 2014…(he claims he was rescued from his skydive by someone piloting a vessel called the TARGIT) & is much overdue to work on the next big Gunkcast! Cheers!!

“Bad Hair Day 2: The 80’s World Tour!”

"There’s been a lot of talk about this next podcast…maybe, maybe too much talk!" Yes, Byron summons the podcast listeners to rally behind his cause with these immortal words which he utters live under a blood red sky. That is…before he pulls the parachute (wait…huh?)!

To kick off the 2nd part of our big retro journey, we find Byron still plummeting towards the Earth on his skydive while he continues the nostalgic trip three decades into the past. But this time (& never-before-seen on Gunkcast) the show goes international for his first guest! Here Byron learns what a “scouser” really is, finds out the origins of this guest’s great love of a certain Chicago sports team, & why he actually has tried to block the 80’s out from his life! After this, Byron free-falls back to the U.S.A. & heads South for some friends (a hint at another podcast team) to vocalize their diverse opinions of the 80’s. This is to quite hilarious results! Finally, the bomb is dropped. One of Byron’s oldest pals stops by the studio with a box which contains the ultimate secret from both of their dark (musical) pasts!

As with the first part episode of Bad Hair Day, this one is abound with much great music of the 80’s (as interpreted by several outstanding contributors)! Some of these include The Basement Lights, Letter Seventeen, The Negligible Nukes, The Flat-U-Ants, Phil ‘Fingers McKraken’… as well as the regular Gunkcast house bands: Curmudgeon & The Gunk U.K.!

Also, watch for one of the whackiest intros ever in the history of the podcast… & we strongly hint at (several) possible hidden endings which you definitely won’t want to miss! In a nutshell, this one has it all folks! Cheers!

“Bad Hair Day In The U.S.A. (Part 1)”

The retro journey begins! So how does an episode which starts with Byron walking his dog suddenly lead to a skydiving adventure, which in turn triggers a wild nostalgic trip to a certain past decade? You’ll just have to tune in to find out these answers. This is one of the biggest (& definitely the longest schemed) outings for the podcast to date! So join Byron and several featured surprise guests as he hot-wires the old Delorean & takes us on a trip back….! 

Also to note, this episode is abound with much great music of a past era… as interpreted by not only our usual podcast house bands: The Gunk U.K. & Curmudgeon, but also by some of Byron’s friends & family alike. Rumors are this Part #1 episode may include a vocal debut by Byron’s wife Maggie Mae, as well as contributions by one of his earliest childhood friends who is now a dedicated musician himself…Stuart Chaseman.

“Space Trek IV: The Trek Stigmata”

Byron’s log—Earth date June, 2013… & he just realized “Holy Schnikes!…has it really been 8 months since the last Space Trek??” Well fret not Gunkcast fans. For here it is at long last… the big return of a most lunatic sci-fi comedy adventure mini series with it’s 4th installment!

Back in late 2012 we left you with a huge cliffhanger (at the end of Part#3) which has since caused much wild fan speculation & rumors buzzing around the web. The source of all this could be summed up with one simple question: “Who shot the Doc?” Well actually you should know who shot the Doc if you listened! But the bigger question is what do our heroes do now as the villainous Double-J Raygun (who is attempting to reboot the entire franchise) threatens to put an imminent end to them all on the Island of Impossible Moss? How can they overcome the odds weighing against them & still recover the (unattended) Starship Arrow which has floated off into space? And just what does something possibly located on a certain starship captain’s gluteus maximus have anything to do with all this?

Find out all these answers & much more in this explosive continuation of the series! Fasten your seatbelts… this one’s a real rollercoaster ride!

Byron & family met the BIG MAN himself recently in Chi Town! We almost were compelled to ask The Shat how he feels about Double-J Raygun & his dastardly attempt to reboot the Space Trek franchise! (Oh sorry…wrong show!)
