Backyard Sessions 5 – Steve Etchie



Backyard Sessions 5 – Mr. Steve Etchie!

 

Today Rocky and John have podcast producer, co-host, and PFT Media co-founder Steve Etchie in the backyard. It was so much fun despite being windy and yet at the same time somehow hot (it was a sunny day with a nearby grill fire).

 

We learn about Etchie a bit, talk a little bit about music, little bit about movies, how Rocky and Etchie began their show, a few 2018 celebrity deaths, and so much more with so many laughs. Thank you Etchie for being on, it was an amazing time!

Getting Kicked Out Of Your Best Friend’s Funeral / Did Ya Hear? w/ Rocky Socha



 

Episode 47 is featured with guest and friend Rocky Socha from “What’S the Fuss?” Podcast. He tells me about how he and Big Wee Paul managed to get kicked out of his best friend Bill “The Hurricane” Helveston’s funeral, and how absolutely hammered they got. I was only there briefly to catch Rocky heading out, which brings us to talk about my tardiness and how to possibly kick the habit of always being late.

We also get back to “Did Ya Hear?” , where Rocky even had one for me. Rocky’s always awesome to talk and laugh with, you need to check out his popular show WTFP because I suspect we are going to be doing a lot more chatting in the future.
