Chillpak Hollywood Hour #532

With Dean Haglund still in Los Angeles, he and his friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, bring you one of their shortest, most hilarious episodes in years. It’s also, occasionally, tough to hear (because of wind). Stick with it, though, as Dean and Phil come at you from the world famous Hollywood Bowl, from the streets of downtown Los Angeles, from Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale (where people are dying to get in) and even from the middle of a tense action movie! Full of “merry daring-do”, you won’t want to miss a moment of one of our most unusual shows ever!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #531

Recorded on location at the Fine Arts Building in downtown Los Angeles, the rooftop bar atop the Ace Hotel (which was once the United Artists building), and Paramount Ranch (site of numerous movies and television shows), this week’s episode boasts no less than six guests, discussing such a wide variety of topics as Dean’s solo art show, the history of Los Angeles and the movie industry, “Twin Peaks: The Return”, PBS, books, crime novels, theatre, fringe festival productions, stand-up and improv comedy, silent movies, and, oh yeah, George A. Romero and Martin Landau are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths.”

Sure, there are occasional audio problems caused by live jazz trios, rooftop wind, loud dance music, and liquor, but there truly is something for everyone on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #528

After several weeks, order is restored in the world of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, as Dean Haglund is back in Australia and Phil Leirness is back in Los Angeles. There is much for your friends in podcasting to catch up on, including remembrances of Roger Moore and Adam West, a trip to the Museum of Neon Art, a description of the best play on Broadway, Dean’s travel adventures, the details on his upcoming art show, and an email from a listener like no other about the lightning and thunder sounds heard on last week’s show, which leads into several bizarre and even scary tales.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #527

Next week, your friends in podcasting will be back doing what they do best, trying to make sense of the world through insight, inspiration and irreverence. Because they are both still on the road, however, THIS week’s episode is another aural pastiche …

Lily Holleman joins Phil to discuss Route 66, her new movie, the return of “Twin Peaks” and what it was like to befriend The Lone Gunmen in Dallas. And speaking of The Lone Gunmen (in Dallas), the 2nd half of the show is a panel discussion, where Dean, Tom and Bruce answer questions from a moderator and from an audience.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour presents “The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: ON THE AIR”

Founded in 1925 by business leaders, entertainment figures and politicians, the Los Angeles Breakfast Club is the weekly gathering place for those seeking camaraderie and those who love the history and culture of Los Angeles. A tribute to the days of yesteryear when the LABC was a fixture on radio, “ON THE AIR” will be a monthly review and preview of happenings at “the Democracy of Ham ‘N Eggs” hosted by podcast veteran Phil Leirness (co-host and co-producer of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and a weekly USA cultural correspondent to the UK’s “Midweek Drive” program on Siren FM and Southside Broadcasting). Your friends in podcasting are proud to present this pilot episode and hope you will enjoy it as much as they do …"The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: ON THE AIR"

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #488

Dean and Phil recorded this week’s extra-long episode right BEFORE the Emmy Awards, so if you’re hoping for analysis of the Television Academy’s big night, you’ll have to wait another seven days. Television does get discussed, however, as your friends in podcasting speak (again) about “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell” as well as the Netflix phenomenon “Stranger Things” and two future “nostalgia” series based on Spike Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It” and the Winona Ryder vehicle “Heathers”. Meanwhile, the great(est?) playwright Edward Albee is remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Dean’s comedy show, a 100th birthday celebration, a John Patrick Shanley play and Phil appearing live on-stage (in An LABC Home Companion, are all discussed in “Live Events of the Week”. And if you love movies, you will really love this week’s show as Dean and Phil cover wide cinematic ground, from this weekend’s disastrous box office results (the worst of an already horrible 2016) to films that might be among the most overlooked ever, from a great “Fortean” horror film of the 1970′s to Oliver Stone’s laughable “Snowden”, from a boatload of unnecessary remakes, sequels and revivals, to a promising Agatha Christie adaptation … All that and no doubt much more on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour with ten percent more “hour”!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #468

Your Friends in Podcasting celebrate 9 years of changing the way people listen to the internet! Join them for this special episode and invite 9 of your friends who don’t listen to the show already to join the Chillpak Nation!

Many special treats on this episode, including Dean and Phil sharing with each other 9 things they’ve done since they saw each other in Los Angeles for two hours on 20 April and 9 things they are each looking forward to as we head into tomorrow …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #467

Next week, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, celebrate nine years of changing the way you listen to the internet and we will be commemorating this milestone with a special episode that might just prove a great starting point for those who have never listened before, but who might enjoy joining the Chillpak Nation!

This week, however, is definitely one only for the faithful as its sometimes shoddy audio quality might scare away the uninitiated, to say nothing of the bizarre songs and rituals! Think we’re joking? Dean was in Los Angeles for 24 hours this week, to attend The Los Angeles Breakfast Club and launch his new book “Dean Haglund: An Illustrated Tour of Broadway in DTLA”. Most of this week’s show will be highlights from that event. Trust us, there’s plenty of laughs along the way. There’s also a special opening about Doris Roberts, Prince and the 1980′s.

Our last show before completing nine years of free, weekly podcast entertainment is unlike any episode we’ve done before. What show can say that after 466 installments? YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course!
