Gawd, where has the time gone? It’s like we haven’t recorded a show since, like, Thanksgiving. Oh…wait…uhhhh…

HEY GUYS, WE’RE BACK! Happy New Year. Merry Christmas. Happy post MLK Day! It’s the first Rad Dudes show of 2012! We’re a little rusty, but hey, it’s the Rad Dudes. What, did you come here for professionalism? Noob. Okay, so, like todays show is good. Wingo gets mad about movies, Jovi hollers about the horrors of Craigslist. We wax poetic about Harry Connick Jr’s acting ability and so much more. Also, Dumptruck decided to grace us with his presence. We make him do an Ultimates! You’ll like it. Trust me. If you don’t, you can punch Wingo. But not in the face. He calls that “The Moneymaker” for some reason.



Our new theme song!

Best show on TV! Hands down!

Can you give us a serious face, Harry?

Hello there. It’s good to see you. Come on in and get comfortable. You can take off your shoes, if you want. I’ve lit some candles to set the mood. They’re vanilla scented. There’s some pizza and wyngz cooking in the oven. Pour yourself a glass of wine and lets get romantic. It’s date night at the Rad Pad and love is in the air. With the seasons changing and with the right amount of tea, Wingo and Jovi (with producer Kowalski) are going all romantically in your ears and in your face. GROSS, RIGHT!! HUUECK! The boys are like Coltrane tonight, all over the place. Trust me though, it’s good. Talk of politics and the record industry and cinema magic. But seriously, back to before, my pants are chafing me…mind if I take ’em off?

Meet the Rad Dudes favorite lady, Nina Conti. Wingo loves her more, which is weird.

If we were as half as cool as this picture, we'd be UNSTOPPABLE!

(p.s. we are fully aware that cerebral palsy does not = ‘retardation’.  Jokes, people!)

NEWSFLASH: Go out and buy some records! The new Plaid (scintilli) is great! So’s the new M83! Oh, and a fritter is any kind of food coated in batter and deep fried. Circumscribe is a word (it means “to draw a line around”). And a slider is called a slider because White Castle trademarked “slider” in the old days. The more you know! (star wipe)

Three things we like…Pretty Lights, Led Zeppelin and Tron!

OH YEAH: and the ‘mystery song’ from the intro was a weirdly slowed-down version of this.





or “Speed Stick, Old Spice. Whatever you got.”

Holy crap, you guys! We’ve done fifty effing shows. And it only took us four years to get there! PROGRESS! MAKING MAGIC! ETC!! And this show, wow, it truly is the perfect storm. Eff George Clooney and all those digital waves! The only digital waves are the ones going right in your earholes. Grab a glass of white whine and allow the Rad Dudes to regal with you tales of being separated from their phones (for a full 12 hours you guys!) and other such first world problems. Today the boys discuss what is “good” 80’s music and “bad” 80’s music, the majesty of Dolly Parton and we’ve got Cmdt. Paul E. Wood in the house cooking us some delicious foodz. Yes, you should wrap that in bacon. In fact WRAP EVERYTHING IN BACON!! Doonlawd this new episode and thank us later. No, seriously. Thank us later. We <3 validation.

An informative message from Master Chef Dr. Wood re: his delicious foods:

Dear Rad Dudes,

Here’s the recipe for the Orange Cornish Game Hens served up for the 50th episode.  The recipe is under development, but here’s what went down this particular time.

– whole cornish game hen(s)
– orange marmalade, trader joe’s variety works well
– one large orange (or oranges), depending on how many hens
– one pound bacon
– a fistful of rosemary sprigs
– at least one whole, peeled garlic clove per hen
– salt
– pepper
– strawberries
– Rainier cherries (this time), or other stuff: pineapple wedges, blackberries, mangos, whatever.

> Carve the peel off the orange(s) in longitudinal slices, about an eighth to a quarter inch wide.  Set aside about half, dice up the rest as finely as possible, ideally with an excessively large hunting knife.
> In a small bowl, squeeze the juice from the remaining orange(s), and mix in the diced peel with several large spoonfuls of orange marmalade.  Depending on how much raw orange juice you have, stir in the marmalade until it gets to approximately ‘pancake syrup’ consistency.
> Rinse off each cornish game hen, then salt and pepper to taste.
> Place two sprigs of rosemary, one (or more) whole clove(s) of garlic, and several spoonfuls of orange sauce into the interior (also known as the ‘bunghole’) of each hen.
> Coat the outside of each hen with orange sauce.
> Place 4 or 5 sliced wedges of orange peel side-to-side across each hen.
> Wrap each hen in bacon to cover as much of the surface as possible without excessive overlapping.  The idea is that the bacon wrapping prevents the surface of the bird from drying out while the interior cooks, aside from adding flavor.  Use common sense: feel free to cut bacon strips into halves or smaller pieces as necessary to cover the hen’s surface, and use toothpicks to hold bacon pieces in place where needed.  Again, avoid overlapping the bacon wrap as much as possible to ensure that the hens cook at a consistent rate.
> Coat outer bacon wrap with orange sauce.
> Preheat oven to 400 degrees, bake approximately 45 minutes.  There will be a lot of bacon fat dripping off of the hens as they bake, so I’d recommend using a rack inside a large pan, or whatever you can devise to allow the bacon grease, hen broth, and orange sauce to run off and be captured beneath.
> Allow to cool 2-3 minutes, baste with orange sauce.  In that 2-3 minutes, I’d recommend pouring off the aforementioned bacon grease with hen broth and spillover orange sauce to make gravy.
> Serve with ample side of strawberries, Ranier cherries, and a dipping bowl of the orange sauce, and/or gravy.
