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.

Took a little while longer than I thought to get Succotash Test Show #2 online. (UPDATE: This episode is now available for download via iTunes!) Mostly because I'm also trying to get my taxes done. I wanted to see if I could get my workflow down a little better with this second test — selecting the clips, recording my wraparounds and commercials, and mixing it together. Mission accomplished!

I came up short on time — this test only runs about 46 minutes — as I'll be shooting for an hour when Succotash goes live, but I had selected a couple of clips which then failed to play properly when I was assembling the show. Decided to go without this time, and you'll never know who got left out this time around.

Who IS on the show this time? Glad you asked. I repeated a couple of clips from the first test — they're funny and/or interesting and this is still just a test — so you can enjoy After Hours with Mark Pitta hosting guest Dana Carvey as well as Nerdist's Chris Hardwick with John Oliver again. In addition, this version of Succotash also has David Feldman's Comedy Podcast, the Kevin Pollak Chat Show with guest Fred Savage, Adam Carolla with Ilieana Douglas, The Jimmy Dore Show, and FitzDog Radio with Greg Fitzsimmons and guest Dave Koechner.

This edition of Succotash is sponsored by Sugarhill Foods, so there are a couple of phony boloney commercials. (Hey! Phony Boloney! That should be another fine product from Sugarhill Foods...)

On other fronts, I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of our new Succotash theme from Scott Carvey. And it looks like my friend Joe Paulino is interested in stepping up as the Executive Producer of this show. He's got a kickass studio here in town and has some great ideas how to tweak not just the sound of the show but also some of the features you'll be hearing once we go live.

That's about it. As before, love to hear YOUR comments and feedback on the test shows. The more I can course corect now, the less there will need to be later. Please email me at marc@SuccotashShow.com. You can also follow us on Twitter @SuccotashShow, plus please Like our page on Facebook!
