Episode 220: Liz Mandeville Plus, Talking Dirty with Siri

Siri has an interesting trick. At least as of the publication of this episode. In this episode, Ric will tell you what you do if you want Siri to say something really dirty.

Also on this show, the lovely Liz Mandeville stopped in to the Radio Memphis studios from Chicago. Aside from talking about the weather, Ric and Jeff had a large time with Liz and her guitar.

Episode 215: It Is Smart Radio, Damnit & The Daddy Mack Blues Band

We are all exposed to on demand entertainment. It is everywhere. This is a good thing. There are podcasts and there is internet radio. Two terms Ric has issues with. Not the technology mind you, but what it is known by the common consumer of such entertainment. It is an uphill battle for sure, but Ric has a few ideas. Also, Ric and Jeff sit down with the Daddy Mack Blues Band. A great conversation and a few tunes as they happened in the Radio Memphis studio.

NEXT WEEK: Under the spell of The Memphis Snake Doctors.
