“Weird Al” Yankovic and his band, the Yanks, have been playing the classic songs of the late ’60s, early ’70s and early ’80s in a format that’s called “radio nostalgia.”
Their music has become so popular that it’s even had its own version of the popular podcast Serial.
Radio Nostalia, which was created in 2013, was the brainchild of Yankiewicz and his friend, David Boreanaz, who both had been studying music and podcasting while living in Boston.
“I’ve never really gotten that much interest in podcasts,” Yankicz says.
“The way I found it, I just thought that maybe this is what’s out there for people.”
In his own words, Yankovich describes his favorite songs as “very much like a song you’re going to hear in a movie theater.”
He’s not the only one who loves them.
In the late 1970s, Yanks played a radio station in Los Angeles called WNBC.
It was a popular spot for hip-hop music, and its playlist included artists like The Roots, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols and The Beatles.
The station was owned by KROQ, the station in LA where Yankwitz and Boreanax lived.
The pair went to the station to record a new song, “I Got You Babe,” but they had already planned to do it during the day.
But then, Yanking and Boringaz heard a local station that would play the song at a different time.
“They were like, ‘Oh my god, we need to do something today,'” Yankowitz says.
Yankowsky and Bomingaz recorded the song and uploaded it to a free service called KROQB, which became known as the Internet’s most popular music podcast.
They kept the song on the station for a few years, and then, with the station’s financial woes, the pair decided to go independent.
“We just did it on our own,” Yanks says.
The Yanks then put out a second album, a collaboration with a songwriter named Paul Simon.
The song was called “The Beatles.”
The two of them kept playing it on the radio, and it became a regular radio show.
“When we started it, it was like a band,” Yankedov says.
In 2006, Yankedovich got the idea for the podcast when he saw a promotional video for a documentary about the late rapper Tupac Shakur.
He was struck by the idea of a podcast that explored hip-hippy pop music, but he didn’t want to be part of a show that he’d later say he was in love with.
The show became Radio Nostalias, which started out as a podcast in 2011.
“It was kind of like the perfect thing to do,” Yanking says.
It had a lot of great songs, and they were really honest.
They were like a rock and roll show, but they were also hip-hoppy.
And they were like what we’re doing now, in that they were doing it on their own time.
In 2013, they launched the show on a podcast network called New York City Public Radio.
Yanks remembers thinking, “We’re doing it for our own reasons.”
He went from doing his own radio show to being part of an amazing podcast.
“But I also felt like I was doing something really good, and I felt like we were doing something good for the world,” YANKIZAs the Yankzis found out, it wasn’t just their own tastes that were changing.
“My kids are now older, and the idea that they might listen to a podcast and be like, I’m listening to the Radio Nostals now?
And they’re not like, Yeah, I like that too,” Yanky says.
Now, his kids watch the show from the comfort of their living rooms, and his kids listen to it all the time.
It’s one of the reasons he’s decided to open up his studio to everyone, from hip-hip to pop.
He plans to keep it open to anyone, including people who grew up listening to hip-hops.
“So if you’re like, Oh, this is really cool, I want to listen to this, or I’m like, this one is my favorite,” Yanka says.
He wants to continue to push his podcast, even if he’s not in the show anymore.
“If people listen to my podcast, and if they want to continue, I feel like I’ve really helped,” YANKOV says.
The podcast has also helped Yanko’s own career.
In 2014, he wrote a song for a movie called “Naked Lunch,” in which he played the iconic guitar part of the Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”
The song won
