Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast


Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched in 2011 with the idea of promoting comedy soundcasts in what was then a marketplace still trying to find its way. By featuring short clips of shows being produced by funny folks both known and unknown, we like to feel that we maybe had a little tiny, eeny weeny, itsy bitsy bit to do with helping to ignite the torch of soundcasts across the globe! (But then we've always had a rather high opinion of ourselves...)

Original show host and executive producer Marc Hershon, along with booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, associate producer Tyson Saner, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have kept the flame alive o'er these many years. In 2018, Hershon abandoned the host chair and anointed Saner to the position, with nary a notice from the legions of listeners. Typical.

Succotash Pre-Premiere Update!

Apr 13, 2011

Got into the studio today — "Studio P in Sausalito, Home of the Hit!" — with a double handful of snippets from recent comedy podcasts. On mic, with headphones on, and Executive Producer Joe Paulino running the show. Did our best to figure out just what the hell this show is going to be and sound like. It's clear that it will be an evolutionary process but it will sound slick, thanks both to Mr. Paulino on the board and the opening theme (and music bed) provided by Music Director Scott Carvey.

Speaking of which, I had breakfast with Scott's little brother a couple of hours before heading into the studio and he's definitely expressed an interest in being a part of things as the show moves forward. I'm not going to reveal more at the moment, as we're still figuring out what that involvement might mean, but trust me when I say it can only be good. Very very good.

I wanted to give an early shout out (early warning, perhaps) to the folks whose souls...er, podcasts...I'm going to be featuring on the Succotash premiere. You'll hear from Adam Carolla, Mark Pitta, Greg Fitzsimmons, Comedy Death Ray Radio, Greg Proops, Greg Berendt, Dave Anthony, Marc Maron, Ed Helms and the gang from Pop My Culture. No snippet runs more than 5 minutes long and there should be ample pluggage to let listeners know where to find the full-length versions.

That's about it for now. Just excited that it's actually about to happen, so I wanted to say something. More soon.

Cheers,
Marc
