Ep. 19 – “South Philly, Macaroni, and a Gimmick”

When a scheduling conflict arises, the BSB goes underground and adapts. This week’s episode, brought to you by Chopper and executive producer Lydon “Big L” Gavin, straight from the dining room of OG Gavin’s house. Engineer extraordinaire Supe Stallone was unavailable this week, due to being entrenched in mixing Vinnie’s new record, so the crew did what they do best: they went back to their DIY/ punk rock roots to bring you a new episode live from the crib, with Gavin making macaroni and all of Jackie Brown’s voodoo gimmicks giving everyone the heebie jeebies. This episode finds the OG, Paz, the Sicko and the Professor delving into some pretty heavy stuff; a discussion of America’s culture of violence goes down some interesting paths, with Paz shutting down Stevie Puerto Rico, and Vinnie and the Sicko breakdown the documentary “O.J.: Made in America.” Meanwhile, the Professor gives us a full account of his trip to Jamaica. Vinnie and the OG go in on the Biz, with a heavy discussion on the upcoming draft. The BSB also brings you all your favorite segments: The Word Association Gimmick, listener emails, Recommendations, and, of course, “Dear Vin.” It’s The Broad Street Breakdown: Our crew is thicker than Sunday gravy.

Ep. 18 – “You Don’t Understand How Earth Works”

It’s anniversary time! Vinnie and the boys kick off this episode with a trip down memory lane as they recall how Sicko met Mrs. Sicko, then tell the story behind Professor Pablo’s wedding. The OG Gavin comes up with a new gimmick about heavy band names that gets everyone going. The OG sparks a new topic by recounting an encounter with a young passer-by that leads to a discussion on the subject of whatever happened to subculture etiquette. As usual, Paz and the OG break down the biz for youse and there is a new “Who’s Worse” world champion crowned. Professor Pablo checks in with another Cheapo story, the Word Association gimmick gets another go-round, Vinnie blesses everyone with a new installment of “Dear Vin,” listener e-mail is read and the BSB gang comes through with another list of recommendations for youse.

Youse asked for it, youse got it, and the ensuing discussions will have hammers wishing for a time machine trip back to the ‘80s.
