The Throwback Podcast

Dan Hanzus and Bob Castrone love listening to music- almost as much as they love hanging out in a garage and talking about it. On The Throwback Podcast, lifelong friends revisit important albums from their past and go through them–track by track– with fresh ears. From the classics to the cringeworthy, every week is a throwback.

BLINK-182 - Enema Of The State

November 21st, 2019

Twenty years ago the boys in blink-182 made the leap from SoCal punks to TRL mainstays, all thanks to an album with a pornstar on the cover and 3 huge hit singles. This week, the boys in the rented garage dig into Blink's multi-multi-platinum LP, Enema Of The State. Also, Bob vamps.

THE BEATLES - Revolver

November 13th, 2019

Dan, Bob, and Jason Zumwalt returned to the garage to listen to some old album by Oasis' dads (I think). It was good.

R.E.M. - Out Of Time

October 30th, 2019

R.E.M.'s seventh studio did it all. Won Grammys? CHECK. Produced the band's biggest single ever? CHECK. Invented rap-rock? CHECK AND CHECK. This week Bob an Dan go back to 1991 and push play on the biggest album that all the cool college kids were listening to in the early 90's. So sit back as Michael Stipe, The Greatest Backing Vocalist In Rock History, and The Billionaire enter the coveted Throwback Podcast Two-Timer Club.


October 25th, 2019

ATN HERO Marc Sessler joins Dan and Bob in the Throwback Podcast Studio (a.k.a. rented garage) to take a walk down memory lane and share the music that soundtracked his life. From Duran Duran to Richard Marx to a man named Dave, come with us on a journey, and experience MARC... in the Key of C.


October 2nd, 2019

The Cranberries' second studio album sold over 17 million copies worldwide. It ALSO beat out Hole, Collective Soul, and Sheryl Crow in Bruno The Sponsor's "Dealer's Choice" Patreon Poll. We'll let you decide which feat is more impressive. In the meantime, let's go back twenty-five years to 1994 to revisit No Need To Argue and, more importantly, unpack the sordid details of Bob's big 9th grade fist fight.


SEPTEMBER ‘89 - Top 10 Countdown

September 26th, 2019

We're going back, back, back in time- 30 years to be exact. Let's revisit the Top 10 Billboard hits from this week in September, 1989. Hair metal, R&B ballads, pop classics, and a surprising amount of talk about the Northridge Quake of '94. Cherish this one.

MATCHBOX 20 - Yourself Or Someone Like You

September 11th, 2019

It sold 15 MILLION copies. Spawned multiple HUGE hits. Introduced the world (and, more importantly, Carlos Santana) to Rob Thomas. But in 1996... Dan and Bob HATED IT. The question is: why? Why were the teenage BFF's anti-Matchers? Why did they hold onto that hatred for decades? And why are they finally ready to finally give Rob & Co. a chance today? Do Matchbox 20 (twenty?) have what it takes to win them over, or... or will they push them away? 

SUBLIME - Sublime

September 4th, 2019

We don't practice Santeria, we don't got no crystal ball, and we definitely don't have a million dollars to spend (at all). But we do have an hour or so to comb through all 18 tracks of Sublime's breakout 1996 LP. If you hate summer, Patreon poll winning albums, or two white guys sharing their thoughts on reggae, you might want to skip this one. Life's too short.

BACK 2 SCHOOL ‘02 w/ Colleen Wolfe

August 22nd, 2019

What were you doing in the summer of '02? If you were anything like the NFL Network's Colleen Wolfe (a.k.a. Connie Fox a.k.a. Tiny Box a.k.a whatever her name was on her old fake I.D.) you were blasting 311 out of your '93 Trans Am and getting ready for your senior year of high school. This week Dan, Bob, and Colleen travel back to the days of Jimmy Eat World, Avril Lavigne, and absolutely filthy hip hop to assemble the perfect Back 2 School Mix and share some high-level Mall Gossip. It's not so complicated.

CAKE - Fashion Nugget

August 14th, 2019

We're going the distance, we're going for speed, and most importantly, we're talking about Cake's alternative-hit spawning sophomore album Fashion Nugget this week. The guys are gonna try to figure out exactly WHO Cake is, WHY they were chosen for a "Dealer's Choice" episode, HOW they won a Patreon poll, and WHAT Bob was thinking when he unironically started wearing a John McCrea inspired bucket hat in college.
