Lost Episode 6: “Because of MySpace” with Myke Hurley and The Arctic Monkeys


And now, we come to the final, and the most lost, of all the Lost Episodes of Crush On Radio. Myke needs no introduction if you’re into podcasts, and he was interested in guesting as soon as Patrick guested. Scheduling this one was hard, especially with his crazy schedule—Myke was still working full-time—and the whole time zone difference thing. This one was also marred with some nasty recording problems, and then, the podcast network kinda fell apart. Well, it’s here now, for the world to hear…

About a year after I wrapped up Crush On Radio, Myke did his own podcast run asking people about their favorite albums. And he did it better than me, too.
