Episode 156 - Top Ten Songs From The Simpsons w/Nick Baker & Dustin Prince
February 27, 2015 08:52 AM PST
For more than 25 years, America's favorite family has graced our televisions with some of the funniest moments in TV history. You may not have given it much thought, but The Simpsons is also home to some of the best music and musical moments ever put on the boob tube. We here at ATTT are gigantic fans of the residents of Springfield and since this is a music show, it was only fitting to highlight the best of the dozens of hilarious songs featured on The Simpsons. Ben is joined by fellow Simpsons fanatics Nick Baker and Dustin Prince. Prepare to bust a gut and sing along. Who puts the spring in Springfield? We do!
Nick can be found touring the world with Russian-born singer-songwriter Marina V. Find out more here:

We here at ATTT pride ourselves on being a source for positivity and quality. We get much joy in bringing you GREAT music. We love helping listeners discover good artists and bands they've never heard of and revisit all the amazing music they've loved over the years. Throw all of that out the window for one week. For the first time ever, we're going negative. We're going to play (very short) clips of TERRIBLE music. But, we're going to have a lot of fun along the way, because there's lot to make fun of in the world of annoying music, and these are the songs that fill us with RAGE. Ben is joined by D.J. Hostettler and Dixie Jacobs from the Milwaukee noise-pop band Body Futures who happen to be in Los Angeles on their honeymoon. Ben, D.J. & Dixie have a lot of pent-up rage when it comes to terrible music, and it all comes spilling out in this super-sized episode. Pre-emptive apologies are in order for those with aversions to swearing, The Black-Eyed Peas and Jimmy Buffett. Regardless, we promise you'll have rage-induced fun listening.
D.J. & Dixie's "mathy power-pop" band Body Futures just released their debut album Brand New Silhouettes and are currently playing gigs throughout the Midwest. Check out their stuff here:

To anyone that puffs their chest out and claims "There's no good music today!", we humbly but emphatically submit our rebuttal. 2014 was a fantastic year for music. It was a year that saw styles merge and blend like never before. It was a year where legacy artists had huge success in a world where the kids supposedly ran the show. It was a great year for indie rock and EDM. It was another step forward in maturity and taste for pop music. In a bizarre coincidence, it was the 3rd year in a row that saw no new releases from The Black Eyed Peas. For all these reasons and more, Ben is joined by a couple of ATTT's beloved regulars, David Daskal and Shannon Hurley to bring you this super-sized episode. 3 Top Ten Lists, 30 songs, a dizzying array of sounds and styles. Hope you like the best of the best from 2014.
David Daskal's Eagles tribute band Best Of My Love is gearing up to hit the road in 2015. Find out where you can catch them by liking them on Facebook:
Shannon is hard at work on her 4th studio album "Switch It On", set for release this year. Find out more at http://shannonhurley.com/Episode 152 - Top Ten Sibling Bands w/Abe Eisen

There's just something about playing music and singing with a sibling. They get under your skin and in your blood, figuratively. Brothers and sisters know each other inside and out and that's why some of the best musical groups in rock and pop history featured members that can literally relate to each other. Ben is joined this week by his older brother Abe, in town on vacation all the way from frigid Wisconsin, to count down the greatest bands with brothers and/or sisters in them.

What can be said about the beauty and power of George Harrison's music that the music itself cannot already convey? Ben and special guest, Emmy-nominated author David Wild try their best to wax poetic about the greatness of George, and play 20 of his best songs from the Beatle years and beyond.
David Wild is the accomplished author of such books as "He Is... I Say: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Neil Diamond", and "The Showrunners: A Season Inside The Billion-Dollar, Death-Defying, Madcap World Of Television's Real Stars". He's also written countless articles for Rolling Stone magazine and numerous television shows.

January 16, 2015 09:31 AM PST
As the great Chuck Mosley once said, "Its a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it". Chuck could very well have been talking about life. The question and well-worn cliche is "Do you live to work or work to live?". Or is it "Are you working hard or hardly working?". They could go on and on about the soul-crushing drudgery that a vast majority of us go through week after week, but Ben and special guest Diane Stroud would rather count down the greatest songs about work... ever! So, kick back in your cubicle, put down that shovel and tell those pesky 747s they can just land themselves. You're on break, dammit. Let's rock!Episode 149 - Top Ten Rock Instrumentals Vol. 1 w/Ryan Blake
January 09, 2015 09:58 AM PST
Attention all singers, you are not needed this week. Please go back to sleep. This week's podcast is all about the finest tracks in the known universe that are so badass that they need no lyrics - the greatest Rock Instrumentals of all time. For our intents and purposes, the "rock" in this case is the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame definition - as broad of a spectrum as it gets. We've got funk, soul, reggae, surf music, ska, blues, metal, and more. Anything goes except jazz or classical. Ben is joined by the old boy himself Ryan Blake to break it all down and perhaps blow a mind or two with some seriously serious jamming. Dig.
Ryan (and Ben) can be seen on stage all over Southern California with LA Soul Project, the Southland's greatest Soul Show Band. Like on Facebook:

All Time Top Ten is primarily a rock show, and for good reason. As we all know, in the immortal words of Bob Seger, rock n roll never forgets. However, once in a Blue Moon we like to branch out into previously un-talked about territory, and that's what we're all about this week. Joining Ben in GoodList Studios is our old pal Joe Lavelle. Joe is a musical savant, and like all good-hearted people, he has a special fondness for music from The Great American Songbook. What is TGAS, you ask? It's everything you know from classic musicals and movies. It's the pop standards made famous by crooners like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. Its songs written by legends like Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin and many more. Sit back and take it in. These are the greatest songs ever written. Ever.
Joe's latest musical project tackles the sounds and sentiments of the Great American Songbook and puts his own signature spin on it. Check out Joe Lavelle's Brandy Sidecar, won't you? Music here: http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/JoeLavellesBrandySidecarEpisode 147 - Top Ten Whistling Songs w/Tony Ross
December 19, 2014 09:02 AM PST
Taping from deep within the condemned bowels of Whiskey Pete's hotel in Primm, Nevada, Ben is joined by the always chipper Tony Ross to bring you the greatest songs that feature whistling. Whistling can do much to accentuate a song and sometimes it becomes the very thing that makes a song great. Either way, we've got big time variety in this episode and lots of laughs and stories to go along with some awesome music.
