PG-009 Musical Impressions

Hello everyone!

Can you believe we’re actually putting out two podcasts within a 4 week period? No shit! Well, part of it is due to the fact that we recorded a longer than usual show on New Year’s Eve. Then it took us forever to get it together. We decided to divide it into two shows. Trouble is, in between all this, there was a parade of death. David Bowie, Lemmy Kilmister, Paul Bley, Paul Kantner, Glenn Frey, et. al.

In this episode we start the discussion of what our most influential musical connections are. In some cases, as with Rita, we look at the perfect albums. Phil talks about experiences with music. Keep in mind, none of this is comprehensive and it is all subject to continued discussion. There is much to discuss. We love music. I think our collection includes over 1000 LPs, well over 1500 CDs, hundreds of cassette tapes, and yes, we still have 45s. Not the largest collection in the world mind you, but we have invested in tunes.

This episode also includes a new Shart Industries commercial. They love us and we love them. They have proven to be very big supporters and sponsors of the Prehensile and Gretel Show.

One thing Phil wants to correct: he makes reference to WZMF radio, back in the 60s and 70s; it was indeed out of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, not Milwaukee, as Phil states on this episode.

At any rate, we hope, as always, that you enjoy this episode and if you have any comments or suggestions, please send them to comments at

We might have a contest coming up soon!

Thanks to all of you who’ve been listening. More good stuff coming!

Special thanks to our secretary Blanche Nesbitt and also to Barry Flavonoid, who plays the role of our loyal Schnauzer.

PG-008 Fine pickings from the internet

Hi everyone! Gosh dang, it’s been a long time since our last post. And we apologize for that. This episode is the first half of a longer piece we recorded on New Year’s Eve, if you can believe it. Things have just gotten out of hand and well, it took a while. Plus, Phil was all obsessed with the various transitional elements of this episode and he lost control of time. Seriously, this was recorded on New Year’s Eve. And we still have another piece, the second half, to go, which will come out soon. You’ll also hear things on this episode that will sound like anachronisms but that’s because we talked about them before some major changes happened in the world. Then, because we were tardy in getting this out, it sounds all fucked up. Sorry. You’ll know what we’re talking about when you hear us tallking about it. December and January have been brutal for the music industry. Enough said.

Well, in this episode, Phil shares some interesting shit he found on this thing called the “internet.” There are all kinds of things out there. This involves boogers. But we think you’ll enjoy where it comes from. And then you can look it up for yourself and be amazed too.

We also start to get into some discussions about music. But mostly this is about boogers. And nasty habits. Please note that if you’re only interested in hearing adults talk about boring adult stuff and how their children are perfect and how they make 3 meals a day on only 3 dollars, then this show isn’t for you. We’ll save you the time.

We sure hope you’ll enjoy it and we also hope you’ll continue to be patient as we get our shit together and get you more episodes of The Prehensile and Gretel Show.

Also, please enjoy our new artwork created by the awesome Wesley Wong. Thanks Wes!
