You've reached the entertainment wing of From Out Of Nowhere. In these pages you can find new and archived episodes of the From Out Of Nowhere Podcast and our sister music show, Special Music Unit.
From Out Of Nowhere features interviews with musicians, comedians and authors, a bi-weekly music show featuring the best in independent rock, metal and outlaw country, plus parody and rants from hosts Eric Furniss and Rob Kern.
The holidays normally find Eric and Rob full of Holiday Jeer and this season is no exception. However, the guys did imbibe enough holiday spirits to slightly round off their edges and put together a gift guide for the FOONatics on your Christmas list. Grab your favorite fifth to mix with a pint of egg nogg and listen to Eric question whether the Catholic Church has placed a Christmas Curse on his family and warm your heart with Rob’s travel stories that include missed planes and know-it-all biddy stewardesses that think they know better than Rob when it comes to consuming alcohol.

EPISODE 80 - THE TRIAL OF SAMMY HAGAR
Long time listeners of FOON know that Sammy Hagar is routinely mocked by Rob and Eric. After one Sammy crack too many Jesus Chrysler frontman Jason Bakken, a well-known Sampathizer, took offense and called us out as Anti-Samites. We decided to invite Bakko on the show to defend the Red Rocker in The Trial of Sammy Hagar. Will Bakko succeed in turning Eric and Rob into Waborita swilling goofs sporting Chickenfoot tattoos? Tune in to hear they guys discuss Sammy, KISS, Queensryche and more on this week’s show.
Hard Rock and Heavy Metal author extraordinaire Martin Popoff returns to the FOON Podcast to discuss all things rockin’. Martin, Eric and Rob talk Rush, Ted Nugent and Scorpions, subjects of 3 new Popoff tomes. Has Ted tarnished his legacy with all his political yammering? What does Martin think about Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson’s RNR HOF acceptance speech? When did the Scorpions begin to stray from their heavier roots? We cover quite a bit of ground this week, so strap in!
