The Bob & Tom Show favorite Pat Godwin joins us this week. Pat began singing and writing songs as a young man growing up in northeastern Pennsylvania. In his 20’s he was performing in and around Philadelphia where he caught the attention of veteran comedian Todd Glass.

Todd found Pat’s songs nice but it was the funny banter between songs that Todd really enjoyed. Enough that he convinced Pat to show up for an open mic at a comedy club to try his hand at stand up. In the crowd that night was the legendary Philly radio God John DeBella. DeBella was so impressed by Pat’s funny songs that he hired him to compose 4 on a daily basis.

Taken straight from the headlines these tunes became a staple on the Morning Zoo at WMMR for nearly 7yrs. We learn how Pat ended up going to The Howard Stern Show where he stayed until around early 2002. We discuss the first time he visited The Bob & Tom Show, let him play us a few tunes, and then things turn a bit serious.

Pat has suffered in the past from situational depression usually following a breakup. These bouts have seen him abusing anxiety medication and alcohol with some not so pretty results. We relive one of those moments following a comedy show in Farmington, New Mexico.

We also discuss life as a single dad to an adopted teenage daughter and a 7yr old son Jimmy, who sometimes goes out on the road and even steps on stage for laughs of his own.

And please stick around for the amazing Keith Richards encounter that Pat decided to save for last. You may laugh, sing along or even tear up a bit with Pat Godwin this week.

Jeff Boggs is a producer, writer, and sometimes actor based in Los Angeles, California.

Jeff started his career with an internship on “Late Night with David Letterman” on NBC. The odds of getting an internship with Dave is slim so Jeff had an interesting way of getting “in the door”.

Once there he took full advantage of the position. Find out about his big break becoming the “Board Guy” leading to a job as the receptionist on the talent floor and then on to the writers floor receptionist. (Many start at the bottom and work their way up. Good life lesson young people.)

Writing proved to be one of Jeff’s greatest talents and the staff of Late Night took notice. Jeff’s first joke to make it on the show was part of the famous Dave’s Top Ten list. His stint with Dave saw him nominated for a Prime-time Emmy and trip to the Emmy’s! His next job was with The Tom Green Show on MTV. This required a move to LA and an ironic skit where Tom “marries” actress Drew Barrymore. However that fell through when Tom and Drew actually started dating.

Jeff went on to Nashville as developer and producer of “Nashville Star”. The show was inspired by American Idol but unlike Idol the contestants had to sing country music. Judges included Blake Shelton, Brett Michaels, Wynonna Judd and more. Jeff has some wonderful stores about his time with these powerful country music stars.

Jeff is currently working on a new project which he is being a bit secretive but we will keep you updated.

When not working Jeff has a love of Karaoke! Learn which songs are his favorites to perform and which song ALWAYS brings down the house. Enjoy the humor, wit and storytelling that comes so easily to Jeff on this weeks episode!

Like most of our Sh*t with Britt shows I never know where they will go. This time it is no different.

I supplied the soup, wine and atmosphere and we started with a “New Years Resolution” theme but quickly veer off. Like many of you losing weight and getting in shape topped the list for Britt, Tiffany and myself. We talk about Weight Watchers, gyms, fasting diets, and plastic surgery.

Then switch to Global Warming (ah the art of conversation) which leads to Tiffany announcing that her sister lives in Alaska. I know what you are thinking, yeah well so what, she lives in a DRY cabin and rides a BIKE everywhere. WOW!

I bring up my favorite book “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. Buy it, read it, live it! Tiffany also has a great story about letting her oldest son “fail” on a recent trip to Chicago. Sometimes live lessons have to come the hard way and as parents its our jobs to facilitate those lessons.

The rest of my notes from this night are just words. Knitting, shingles, stress, Christmas, mom calls, ballroom dancing, Sam Elliott, Roadhouse, Tom Cruise, Cardi B, Madonna and Bruno Mars. Now I can’t wait to listen and figure out exactly what the heck happened.

Cheers!

Who doesn’t love magic and magicians? My guest this week, Justin Willman is not only a talented magician he is also a stand up comic. A combination that adds up to amazing entertainment.

We learn how a couple of broken arms at the age of 12 put Justin on a path to stardom. With the stage name Justin Kredible, given to him by his mom, Justin honed his early craft at kids birthday parties and entertaining friends.

His love of magic eventually led him to LA and the legendary club the Magic Castle. Although his first visit did not go as planned he did end up doing lots of stage time.

Now he travels the country with his combo show of magic and comedy and will soon bring his talent to TV. Justin has just finished filming 6 episodes of his new show Magic for Humans for Netflix. A show that looks at magic from different facets of being human. Example: Love, guilt, self-expression, etc. I am intrigued and can't wait to watch.

We also learn what it takes to bring a show from an idea to your home.

Magic isn’t his only talent Justin also was the host of the show Cupcake Wars and more on the Food Network. He shares the worst cupcake he ever sampled and some of his favorite flavors. Oh and we find out how a magician ended up hosting a food show in the first place.

Justin also shares his wedding with us. He married Jill a couple of years ago in a ceremony that was both unique and romantic. The couple also threw in a little magic… The video of their first dance is mesmerizing. Suspend reality for a bit and let Justin bewitch you with his story!

Behind all successful people are those who get little if any recognition. The Bob and Tom Show has producer Dean Metcalf.

Dean joined the show as an intern in 1988 and never left.  In fact as the producer of the show his role is critical.  But just what does a producer do?  Dean will enlighten us.

He is also the voice behind many of our characters including, Jumbo the elephant, The Pope, and many nameless accents and on the fly call ins.

We learn how the Godzilla bit started, how he is a genius at editing on the fly, the birth of the Deans and more. What does an average morning look like for Dean?  What is it like to work with Tom?  We also veer away from The Bob and Tom show to talk about his incredible guitar collection.

Dean has amazing stories about his first guitar, his most expensive guitar, and his most cherished. Not only does Dean collect guitars he is an incredible player. He is a member of several bands including The Electric Amish, The Tempos, The Turnip Seeds, Area Code 812, and a couple of bluegrass ensembles.

In his spare time he collects Presidential memorabilia. How did that start? He has even acquired a couple of actual life size wax dummies of Presidents Grover Cleveland and Franklin Pierce. Where does one even buy a wax dummy of a former president? You will learn.

A fascinating look at a guy who rarely gets the attention he so deserves.
