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.

FOF #2008 – Red White and Peaches Christ

FOF #2005 – Diving into Darienne Lake

After years of being drag mom to many gals, Darienne Lake finally made it on RuPaul’s Drag Race, only to be portrayed as a mean queen.

Years before that, she was on the Ricki Lake show with her drag daughter Pandora Boxx but the show’s ridiculous premise was “You’re Too Fat to be a Drag Queen.” Still, she manages to be one hell of a funny gal.

Today Darienne Lake joins us to talk about her roller coaster ride on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
