Nick is joined by music journalist Jim Ryan, from Forbes and The Daily Herald to talk about The Year in Music, including the best albums of 2022 (Spoon, Eddie Vedder, Tears For Fears are among the artists on the list) and the best concerts of 2022 (including The B52s at the Chicago Theater, Jack White at Empty Bottle, and Chris Stapleton at Wrigley Field). They also talk about how Joe Walsh has always been waaaay too good for The Eagles, and the time that Paul Oakenfold pretended to be both Pet Shop Boys. Then Esmeralda Leon and Nick talk about more celebrity drama (Richard Gere and Debra Winger HATED each other during the making of “An Officer and a Gentleman” and Justin Bieber is a punk), fulfill a drunken Megaphone Message, taste some Japanese candy that look suspiciously like meth rocks, and Nick’s Dad Tells a Joke!
