Colin Quinn & Nick DiPaolo launch new radio show

Imagine my surprise when I tuned into WJFK-106.7 last night and heard Colin Quinn & Nick DiPaolo's new radio program! These two are extremely entertaining and intelligent; it is hilarious to listen to them riff off each other. It appears that their show is based out of New York and, according to what they were saying, on a trial run. I hope that it turns into something permanent, as I would hate to see the abysmal Peter Rosenberg slide back into the 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. slot. Quinn's superb Comedy Central show, "Tough Crowd" was cancelled last year. Nick DiPaolo was often a guest. As cutting-edge as Comedy Central would like to be, the channel wasn't smart enough to keep Colin or his show. Let's hope that Colin & Nick's radio program has a longer life. Cheers!

Subject: Ain't So Cool Anymore

We laid down basic tracks for Ain't So Cool. As hard as digital is for me, it sounds pretty good. I hadn't recorded in a studio in maybe 10 years, and of course Gary, who owns The Batcave, is still mastering the transition to digital, and Mick, who practicaly built the place were at it over the this and thats... Sal from Milk n' Cookies played bass. He's great. A gentle giant. A pleasure to get to work with him.
Boy, me in a recording studio... As they're getting the levels, mike placements, wires, bla bla bla worked out, I go back in time looking for the bottle, coke and dope etc... I had to take the elevator downstairs and walk over to Union Sq to breath three times. What a piece of work, 'eh??? Kept remembering Sinatra at Cherokee Studios. He showed up, did two takes and said "that's great", then split. That's what I call making records..

"Please Your Honor, I'm as guilty as can be! He said - Get out of this courtroom and go plant a tree..."
from ain't so cool anymore

How awesome is this! The world will finally get to hear what they've been missing all these years. SWEEET!!
