“Weird Al” Yankovic

Episode 66

Episode 66 is getting a special Sunday morning release this week!!!

Why?  Well, it all has to do with the topic of the episode: “Weird Al” Yankovic.

While researching this week, Aaron discovered that the number 27 has a strange and, possibly, not-so-coincidental association with “Weird Al” over the years.

It’s a subject Aaron and Brent will discuss in detail during the episode.

So, with Sunday being June 27th, Aaron and Brent thought it was only fitting to release their next episode a day earlier than normal.

For Episode 66, Aaron will highlight three songs from Al’s 1985 album “Dare To Be Stupid” and Brent will look at three songs from 1984’s “Weird Al Yankovic in 3-D”.
