Category: Inside The Episode

Well it was bound to happen and it did…the Paramerican Radio studio was setup and our first, in-studio guest graced us with his presence.  Mr. Corey Moss stepped into our studios and onto the air waves (or podcast waves I guess;) of Paramerican Radio to shed some light on the insides of the entertainment industry and reveal some backstory on Chad through he and Chad’s 20 year long friendship.

Corey graduated from Chad and I’s alma mater, Iowa State University, where we all launched our careers in media and entertainment and Chad and Corey worked together at the news paper in the early days, the Iowa State Daily.

Corey and Chad reminisced about the old college days and Corey helping Chad’s band getting to share the stage with Motley Crue, the different paths each took and how they have crossed paths many times over the years.  They even shared an epic story of a David Lynch-esque evening spent with legendary Director Robert Altman that you simply have to hear to believe!

Corey, Chad and I also discuss the recent reports that ghost sightings are at 25-year high while reviewing the Chinese “Floating Sky City” footage and much more, including Chad’s honest review of “Dear Jack”, Corey Moss’s director debut documentary, which chronicles Something Corporate vocalist Andrew McMahon’s overwhelmingly emotional struggle to survive leukemia.

We were glad to get Corey into the studio for the first ever in-studio podcast and we hope it was as informative and entertaining for our audience to tune in as it was for us to record!

Well it goes down as the first Paramerican Radio podcast in the record books and it couldn’t have been more suited that we did it in Sydney, Australia with our good friend Craig Powell.

We flew into Sydney December of 2016 and setup to screen Sir Noface to the sold out Aussie crowds over three separate screenings on December 1st and 2nd.  It went over fabulously to say the least and it was the first time we got to see audience reaction from the very location and people the film centers on…Sydney Australia.

After all the screenings were complete and we had our fill of seeing the sights, we met up with Craig at our Air B&B in Coogee (a vacation location a little outside of Sydney) and setup to do the first Paramerican Radio podcast.

We had gotten to know Craig pretty well from our various trips to Australia, but we got quite a bit closer after touring with Craig for a month on the 2016 Sir Noface national tour in the good ole USA, so we were all like old chums as we sat down and got into the discussion about the making of Sir Noface, touring and various other topics.

We would like to thank Craig, Nicky, Rocco, Diesel and the entire W.S.P.R. Team for all of their time and efforts for this trip and all the previous trips and adventures along the way.  You are some of the best people we’ve ever known and we are happy to call you all friends.  Between everything, I’d say we have enough memories to last a lifetime;)

Hope to be seeing you all soon!

As I sit down to write this update, the first week of shooting and recording for Paramerican Radio is nearly complete!  There have been many long hours, blood, sweat and tears that have gone into getting everything ready to go for our audience (well…no tears yet, but I’m sure they will come;)

The first episodes have been a blast, and like anything, we’ve all been getting better and better as we start ‘finding the flow’ of the show, along with get a little more accustom to interacting on-air.

As far as our production schedule, Paramerican Radio will be releasing two new episodes every week.   You can listen to new episodes right on or by subscribing to itunes, youtube, stitcher, tunein radio and also our own rss feed.  We are also working on getting a Paramerican Radio app ready for download that can be used to listen to new episodes.

Most episodes will feature special, in-studio guests and the ones that do not, will be hosted by Chad, Justin with Steve ‘Tinder’ Zilberman filling in as the guest.

So strap yourself in and get ready!   We’ve got a lot of great guests on the horizon and we are working on plans to integrate our fan base into the future Paramerican Radio broadcast.

Thanks for your continued support!
