  • EVH

    I’ve listened to this full 3.5 hour episode twice already and, honestly, thinking about listening again. Since EVH passed, I’ve listened to many tributes, and there are some really nice ones out there. However, there is not one that even comes close to the heart and pure love expressed in this episode. more

    I’ve been listening to the gems mike has been dispersing since he was the third basemen on NNF. When he is telling stories there is no one I’d rather hear.

    I listen to a lot of comedy podcasts. The 50YOB has made me laugh out loud the most of any of the other shows. Highly recommended!!!

    Boy have things gotten bad. I think all of the help he has received from his fans has totally removed his drive. He seems to dread doing the show anymore and constantly looks for an reason to put up a “classic” episode. more
