It was Bingo day yesterday for Tier 3.

Jimmy made it through with a migraine which is still lingering.

Thank you for supporting, listening, etc at ANY level.

Comedy On Vinyl has Josh Gondelman on this week and they talk about Jimmy’s album Sprezzatura! https://www.amazon.com/Sprezzatura-Jimmy-Pardo/dp/B00JMBQF02/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=Sprezzatura&qid=1632158522&sr=8-7

Jimmy teared up listening to it at one point while he listened to it. He was that moved by their words.

55 – David talks about not knowing he won a Peabody (Pee Buddy?!)

We listen to words David can’t say correctly because he’s from Jersey.

60 – No classy hat or bowtie for David at the Emmys.

David talks about being sure he was gonna lose his Daytime Emmy to the Jeopardy Alex Trebek tribute. He was at a baseball game with his son when he found out he TIED with that show. He’s also a Muslim Public Policy award winner.

Red Carpet story! David saw Rita Wilson and Ken Jeong on the carpet, both of which are friends.


1h5m – David talks about going to prep school.

Jamie Widdoes – https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0927042/?ref_=tt_cl_t_13

He sat next to him at the Emmys.

1h10m – Jimmy asks David about the room when Conan was doing his bits. He says it’s was joy and no awkwardness at all. Aside from feeling like they were risking their lives which made for a weird vibe the entire night.

Matt talks about Conan’s impact and Jay Leno. Zoe and her friends have NO idea who Jay Leno is but they all know Conan and consider him “the funny one.”

1h15m – David talks about his wife meeting Conan back in his Simpsons days. She was unimpressed by him.

David talks about all the time he spent with his wife during the pandemic and how she was surprised people like talking to him.

David talks about the best speech he ever gave.

1h20m – David’s gonna work with a Beatle! He won’t say which. Jimmy says he can narrow it down to two.

David has done the grammys for 20 years and the CMAs for nearly 20! While he did the CMA, he’d fly back to LA to take his kids trick or treating for Halloween and then fly back to Nashville.

1h25m – David’s kids have been going to the Grammy’s with him since they were ten. Except last year due to Covid.

He talks about how he got Ringo Starr to give out the last Grammy of the night.

Is Ringo Benjamin Button?
David has walked a LOT during the Pandemic. Always at least 10k steps, but normally 20k.

David can’t wait for more Manifest.

The FBIs is not a show, it’s 3 shows on one night.

1h30m – David talks Friends and Jennifer Aniston.

David mentions the security of Harpo Studios.

Who smoked?!


Category: Clothing

1h35m – Talking shorts!

The guys don’t like Cargo pockets.

Question: Pajamas were invented in the 17th Century but were very unpopular but why did they make a resurgence in 1914?

David talks about his dad telling a story to a nurse about how David got Frank Sinatra to mention him on a record.

1h40m – Round the horn!

My answer is Soldiers in WW1 wore them or were issued them.

David signed a Podcast deal.

David basically says we should be the highest paid podcast.

Jimmy’s favorite Chicago songs come during the era of the band a lot of people

Talking sleepwear.

I wear shorts or PJ pants.

Peg those pants!

Eliot goes straight underpants. His answer is also soldier related.

Matt sleeps in boxers and T. His trivia guess is that it’s Health Related
Might have Vaccine’s for kids soon!

David’s guess is Pandemic Nightwear

David Hates Johnny Hates Jazz

Never lose the idea that you cant believe you get to sleep in a bed next to a girl is what David says is the secret to marriage.

Jimmy’s guess is couples started sleeping together.

Mary Kay and Johnny was the first show to have a couple sharing a bed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Kay_and_Johnny

1h55m – David talks about asking Ray Charles about all the white guys who sounded like him.

The only album David’s wife owned: About Last Night…


We’ll be right back!

We’re back!


The answer is: wartime in case of air raids.

It’s up to the bets!

2h – The worst interview David ever had was with Jimmy Page. He was a total douche to him during the interview. David actually asked him if he did something wrong. He said he was mad over “the review.” Of the first Zepplin album in Rolling Stone. Which happened when David was 5.

David wins with a low bet of 2.

New song? Rocky Road?

David had a meeting with Daft Punk. They wore no helmets. David found it weird. Same with Sia. David thinks he saw Daft Punk accept their grammy but he’s pretty sure he saw one of the guys in the audience while they were accepting.

David talks about watching all the grammy’s raw feeds for a book and John Denver hosting and not interacting with the audience AT ALL during breaks.
Perhaps Love duet with John Denver and Placido Domingo makes both David and Jimmy cry.

David got a lot of John Denver stories from John’s manager.

Jimmy asks about Andy Williams and Stevie Wonder Grammy moments. “Stevie can you see us we can see you?” That was the last year Andy hosted.

2h10m – David is the voice in Stevie Wonder’s ear, for lines AND songs. He always asked for him. And Stevie would ALWAYS improv. He talks about it.

Jimmy thanks David for bringing him in on the Liner Notes for Chicago’s album.


We’re done!
