Dave and Ethan interview Frank (From the Bank) Sanchez – a Close Personal Friend of Al since high school, and best known by Al fans for playing bass guitar on the Placebo EP version of Weird Al’s “Happy Birthday.”
Dave & Ethan launch a podcast!
Dave “Elvis” Rossi & Ethan Ullman are two of the biggest Weird Al fans in the world!
You may recognize Dave as the fan who spearheaded the campaign to get Al a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, including helping to raise the necessary $40,000 to pay for it! He is also known for his extensive Weird Al collection, his Weird Al tattoos, and this podcast!
Ethan is amassing an impressive Weird Al collection of his own, as well as spending time as a comedian and comedy radio show host – having interviewed Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan, Marc Maron, Kate Flannery, Awkwafina, Margaret Cho, and even Weird Al himself!
Dave and Ethan constantly talk about Weird Al for hours at a time. It’s not unusual for them to be on the phone discussing Al into the wee hours of the morning, so it was kind of a natural progression to start up a podcast. Their conversations would be fun for anyone with the appropriate level of nerdiness, and they want to share them with you. And as much as this podcast is an outlet for Dave and Ethan, it’s meant to be one for you, too. Our goal is not only to entertain you, but also to engage you in conversation!
Support us on Patreon!
While running a niche podcast is quite lucrative on it’s own, sometimes it would be nice to add some premium gas to our solid gold humvees, so we decided to join Patreon!
We love recording and posting weekly episodes and bi-wheneverly bonus episodes, and thought our listeners would also enjoy some exclusive additional content – including secret episodes, bloopers, videos and unaired segments.
Our goal is to help cover the costs associated with running a podcast, and at the same time, create fun content for our listeners.
Thank you to our supporters!
Dave and Ethan want to thank the following amazing listeners for pledging support for the podcast! These pledges keep the podcast going by helping to cover the costs associated with hosting, getting great artwork, and original music by Grammy award nominated musicians!
