FOF #2021 – Shea Couleé is Half Banjee and Bougie

Dolly Parton once said “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.” People think theatrical make-up, hair and costume must be expensive to look good, but it’s certainly not the case.

Our guest today, Shea Coulee, describes herself as a little bit bougie and a little bit banjee. Either way, she’s 100% fierce. Listen as Shea joins us to take a look at tips on saving money for queens and anyone else who wants to look like a million bucks.

FOF #2010 – Bye Bye Bill Cruz

We first met Bill Cruz 13 years ago in Chicago when he was a young man just getting into stand up comedy. At the time, he seemed to be the only out gay comedian in town. We were thrilled to have him perform at our live show held at a Vietnamese banquet hall.

Sadly, our friend Bill is moving to Los Angeles to pursue comedy. Lucky for you, he’s in the studio one more time before the big move.

FOF #2009 – My Favorite Year: 1997

FOF #2009 – My Favorite Year: 1997

The year is 1997, and American music companies are raking it in the money just before the Internet and Napster changed the value of buying music. It was a year that would introduce many one hit wonders, like Hanson’s “Mmmbop,” Aqua’s “Barbie Girl,” Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping” and Tito Nieve’s “I Like It Like That.”

What an annoying year! But oh so good!

Today musician Stephen Leonard joins us to look at the one-hit-wonders of 1997, and why it was such an extraordinary year for big hits.
