  • Marnie Stern gives us the lowdown on NYC summer heat, adorable youtube videos, and her brand new record
  • America's Funnyman, Neil Hamburger, tells us why Kenny Chesney is an a-hole, plus what's in store for all of us when he hits Chicago's Viaduct Theater later this month.

We've also got Gossip Wolf, a twitter update from King Diamond, and our very first commercial break!  OH HECK YEAH.
