Cheers, Stomps & Whistles

What’s happening all you lovely, happy-go-lucky people? Nothing? Really? Nothing at all? Wow - alright, WELL — something is about to happen. That’s right, you’re either listening to or about to listen to the newest episode of Silly Pancakes!

Uproarious applause!

That’s right - this, my friends is Silly Pancakes and thisthisthis is the wild, wonderful and wacky podcast description - strap in, you’re about to get your socks knocked off!

This week, I had the opportunity to chat with a lovely, talented and funny dude, Alex Trugman. I had met Alex a few times over the past year or so, but had never had a full on conversation with him…until now! DUN DUN!!!

Alex and I chat at length about his experience on American Idol, music in general, comedy, relationships, love and the cosmic craziness that is life! It’s a great chat - an intense chat - an insightful chat - a fun chat. I hope you dig it!

Also, please be sure to stick around until the end of the episode when Alex plays “Empty Well”, an original song off his first album “Marionette”.

Buy Marionette on iTunes.
