The Fogelnest Files: Great American Dream

It’s known that Jake is an all-time master at picking clips so when would he ever allow someone else to curate his show? When that someone else is multimedia goddess Rachel Lichtman!!! She sits in with Jake and talks about her work for The Monkees, having the most obscure pop culture references on her twitter feed, and her documentary, Candy Store Profits, all on today’s episode of The Fogelnest Files! Jake and Rachel mind meld over her collection of delightful clips that include; a young woman in 1965 New York fawning over The Beetles and sprouting a new generation, the lo-fi origins of the Doctor Who theme song, and the Bee Gees on Howard Stern’s New Years Rotten Eve serenading John Bobbit’s lost penis. They also check out and try to understand a commercial from 1982 for an English leather British bikini girl contest that’s narrated with enough velocity to melt your face. To watch the clips discussed on this episode go to: Make sure to leave your reviews for every James Bond movie in “The Fogelnest Files” section on Itunes and also come see Jake live at UCB Theatre on Jan. 31st with special guests Rob Huebel and Chelsea Peretti!

Ya’ll should listen to this podcast! Jake is a big Monkees fan and Rachel did all of the visuals for the recent Monkees Tours and wrote the liner notes for the recent Rhino HEAD boxset. THEY ARE ALSO HILARIOUS.

OK not to be annoying but this podcast is great and Rachel confirms that the Monkees had plans to re-unite BEFORE Davy died and her and Jake spend a lot of time talking about the recent Monkees tour towards the end of the show and please listen, ok bye.
