    03/11/2021 Duración: 01h17min

    In the 80s, music was vital in bringing young people together in a spirit of rebellion and counterculture. Punk and post-punk was huge and Chicago had its fair share of awesome rockers, some of whom have been forgotten until now.Our story today begins with our neighbor and dear friend, Eric Clements, who discovered a giant box of cassette tapes at a thrift store. Among the massive collection of pop music was a few cassettes of a band he never heard of called the Veil, whose rock music and strong lead vocals by Lorna Donley could easily have been played in rotation on MTV or featured in a soundtrack of a John Huges film.Eric fell in love with the music and while he couldn’t find much information about the band at first, his detective work led him on a path of discovery.Today writer Eric Clements joins us to talk about bringing the band Lorna Donley and The Veil back from the cultural abyss with a new release of music nobody ever heard until now.LORNA DONLEY AND THE VEIL: https://lornadonleyandtheveil.bandcamp.

  • FOF #2989 - Matt Brown Takes on the Dave Chappelle Controversy

    18/10/2021 Duración: 01h06min

    You’ve probably already heard about the controversy or even weighed in on Dave Chappelle’s final comedy special for Netflix, The Closer, where the comedy legend spends most of the hour taking an irreverent and critical look at the collective struggle of LGBTQ folks.Despite being a comedy special everyone loves to hate, Chappelle does bring up some wonderful sex positive material like wondering what MLK Jr would have to say about glory holes. Unfortunately, Chapelle proclaims himself team TERF while perpetuating some harmful ideas about trans bodies and compares trans women’s genitals to vegan burgers.The Closer is probably the longest set any comedian has ever spent talking on LGBTQ+ issues and is way more complicated than clickbait articles would have you believe.All controversy aside, we are puzzled that Dave Chappelle would align himself with the same regressive people he claimed were the reason why he abruptly walked away from a 50 million dollar paycheck when he quit his successful show on Comedy Central

    The early days of the internet gave LGBTQ folks the unprecendted ability to take matters into their own hands, by creating blogs, podcasts, videos and music that spoke directly to audiences about their unique experience.

We met Amanda through a Craigslist Ad we placed for our live musical variety shows looking for a woman with a big personality and bosom to match.Often mistaken for someone else at her comedy shows, Amanda was known to our audience as Amanda Steinstein, a character developed for the live shows which combined a pinch of Fran Drescher, a smidgen of Grace Slick and a whole lotta Dr. Who, or in her case, Dr. What!?So when we heard she got cast on To Tell the Truth in a double whammy as a Bug Baker and Aquanaut, we knew it was going to be good.Today comedian Amanda Cohen, best known to long time listeners as Amanda Steinstein, joins us to look back at all the people she’s been mistaken for: someone’s mom, a truck driving lesbian, a bug baker and an aquanaut.AMANDA COHEN: http://www.amandacomedy.comPlus-➤ A look back on our 16 years and 3000 shows➤ Fi-Dom, or using financial dominati
