Checked Out In Jersey Episode 512- Guitar Gabe and His Heavy Metal Riffs

As you sit in your middle-aged funk and wish you had done something differently so your life wouldn't be so boring, here's a kid who is knee-high to a grasshopper but playing on stage with Jim Breuer in front of 15,000 people. Guitar Gabe, who originally appeared with us on our old show, The OMC Show (still available on iTunes and Stitcher), comes back, this time with guitar in hand, to update us on his career (which Matt is jealous of) and to take the Heavy Metal Riff Challenge. Gabe knows over 100 heavy metal songs and Matt tries to stop him up by randomly calling out song titles.  Before Gabe comes on, Chet and Rodney from Down The Hall Podcast  discuss last week's pic, "Sing Street", and reveal this week's pic. They also talk about how they won't flog each others' dolphins in a parking like behind Chilis. Wendy's? Well, that's another story. (DISCLAIMER: They really don't do that in any parking lot, room, or other environment).   COI

Checked Out In Jersey Episode 511- Matt's Second Heart Attack, Rodney Flies Solo and Audible Soul Performs Live!

Matt has yet another heart attack. Or maybe this time it was a stroke. Or nicotine poisoning. Or who knows what?

Chet had sand in his va-jay-jay, so Rodney, from Down The Hall Podcast  ( ), was flying solo during his segment, in which he gives Matt health advise and forms a "co-hosts union" of sorts with Pete. This week's recommendation is "Sing Street". Just listen! And, finally, the Main Event: Audible Soul is a refreshing, soulful trio out of Westfield, New Jersey and they stop by the studio to deliver our first live in-studio performance since Marquis Allen in 2015. (We really are a class act when it comes to bringing you fine entertainment.) You really gotta listen!! Oh, and CJ owns Butcher Burgers on Elm St in Westfield. Matt and Pete ate their a few weeks ago and, boy, oh boy, does that CJ make some good burgers. No
