Who knew you could hang out under a bridge and have a great time? The Waterfront, in Homestead, invited us to be a part of their “Vibes Under the Bridge” party. And why WOULDN’T we have had a great time? Look at this guest list: Meg Evans from The Rock Bottom and some “Uppity Jagoff” talk, Leigh and David from Barrels to Beethoven, the guys from The Beauty Slap, John Knight and KDKA-TV’s Ron Smiley. Our question of the podcast? Are you comfortable using portable toilets?

YaJagoff! Podcast - Show Notes: Episode Music: Barrels to Beethoven and The Beauty Slap

01:59 Just hanging out at the Waterfront. Emily, the Marketing Coordinator for the Waterfront, talks about the place... including….if those smoke stacks part of a missile defense system.

Guest co-host this week: Rachael Rennebeck (finally she comes on and we aren’t freezing to death!)

SPONSOR: Total Sports Enterprises is having signings galore this fall starting Sept. 19th with the Steeler rookies signing that includes: James Conner, Sean Davis, JuJu Smith-Shuster, Keion Adams and Brian Allen!
Then, the 23rd of September brings “Mr. Walk-Off,” Josh Harrison to The Mall at Robinson for a signing.
October 7th, is a save-the-date for Hines Ward, Santonio Holmes, Eli Rogers, Louis Lipps, Yancey Thigpen and Antwaan Randle El
And the BIG news of the fall is that TSE welcomes, on October 21st, Mean Joe Greene and Tommy Okon (Coke commercial kid), Ryan Shazier and Vince Williams, better known as “Shake and Bake.”
And YaJagoff has your chance to win 2 tickets to the September 19th rookie signing just for correctly answering a question, from this podcast, that will post on Facebook Tuesday. If you answer correctly, you will be entered into a random drawing to sore the chance to meet these 2017/2018 Steelers.

09:23 Ron Smiley, morning meteorologist from KDKA-TV is hanging with us. Couldn’t have been nicer! We hit him with many questions including our question of the day, what it was like to follow an icon like Dennis Bowman and what were some ooopsies that have happened on the air! Key word: Tennis Balls!

26:28 Leigh Solomon Pugliano and David Pugliano, while on break from performing, talk to us about their Barrels to Beethoven project. It’s an interactive Steelpan music act where everyone gets a chance to learn and play a steel drum.. nope.. not a drum… a Steelpan! September 23rd you can attend the over 21 PanCamp!

36:33 John Knight talks about “What Aggravates Me” ..um.. him… about back to school shopping.

43:26 Meg Evans, of the Rock Bottom Brewery hangs with us! Can she use a portable toilet? If brewing beer is her job, what are her hobbies? FYI, they have a beer called the Uppity Jagoff!!!!!

50:55 Have you heard of The Beauty Slap funk/tech band? They join us just before taking the stage and they are in awe of her James Brown story! Download their new LP at ThunderFunkMachine.com

Thanks as always to Frank, Wayne and Hannah of the Pittsburgh Podcast Network.

56:58 A special thanks to the folks at the Waterfront and Revive Marketing Group for inviting us!

We finished the 2017 J&D Waterproofing Summer Porch Tour with a huuuuge party and Super Bowl 43 MVP, Santonio Holmes, comedian Ray Zawodni, “Bub” the zombie from The Scarehouse. Jay Weaver and Olga Watkins from the Olga Watkins Band, crushed the music. Thanks to Everyone Loves Fun Entertainment who brought the Quarterback Blitz, 5 Generations Bakers who supplied the Cinnamon Swirls, Ernie Ricci who gave us hot sausage for breakfast and The Foundry Table & Tap for the mimosas.

YaJagoff! Podcast - Show Notes: Episode The Olga Watkins Band (OlgaWatkinsBand.com)

01:16 The last J&D Waterproofing took us to Robinson Township, the home of Tom and Carlotta. It was excruciatingly hot but we all endured. Comedian Ray Zawodni was the guest co-host once he got through Parkway West traffic.

SPONSOR: Total Sports Enterprises will be at the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership Farmers Market this Thursday and next for your chance to win an office makeover worth $2500 and to score some of your own favorite sports pieces. September 16th Biiiig Signing! Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes, James Conner, Sean Davis, JuJu Smith Schuster! Check tseshop.com for details.

02:38 We meet the homeowners and all of our sponsors. I big game of “throw a tennis ball over the hill into the pool” has already started. It’s a family game so don’t worry if you have no idea what that means.

11:00 Santonio Holmes got heavily involved in the “throw a tennis ball over the hill into the pool” and was quite competitive. He’s raising money for “Strikes Against Sickle Cell” through his III & Long Foundation. Make sure you donate and be ready to come bowl with 32 of his celebrity friends on October 10th at Paradise Island Bowl. Stay tuned for details!

29:28 “Bub” a zombie from The Scarehouse came to personally present Tom and Carlotta their special VIP tickets. And we talked to him about how he died and his “tastes” in humans.

36:47 Comedian Ray Zawodni tells us about his recent career change, and his new podcast about quitting jobs, “No Weeks Notice” – plus, he talks about his uncle’s reaction to meeting KDKA’s Bob Pompeani!

43:40 Olga Watkins and Jay Weaver crushed the music today. If you’re not a fan, you’re a Jagoff!

Episode 81 / August 15, 2017

Aug 7, 2017

For the first time ever, Red Bull brought it’s world-recognized “Flugtag” to the shores of Pittsburgh.  Needless to say, we participated with the Flying Pittsburgh Parking Chair and a podcast from behind the scenes at the Flugtag hangar area.  Guests were the Flying Parking Chair Team, Judge Lee Terbosic, Ed Wolfe from the Regatta Board of Directors, our sponsors Ryan from Primanti’s and Danielle Spinola from Tupelo Honey Teas and other teams! Crazzzzeeee day.

LISTEN to the Podcast show right here below:
YaJagoff! Podcast -  Show Notes: Episode Music: Pittsburgh Song Polka, Ron Romanovsky

01:27     From the EQT 3 Rivers Regatta Flugtag Hangar area as we gear up to hit the flight deck with our Flying Pittsburgh Parking Chair.
Meet the Flying Pittsburgh Parking Chair Team, Andrew Paul Holly Koening Amanda Narcisi and 134lb, experienced BMXer, Linus Pietrusza and the lead Yinzerneer, Pittsburgh’s very own Salvage Artist, David Calfo.

SPONSOR: Total Sports Enterprises will host Charity Sunday at the Mall at Robinson, at the lower level near Sears next Sunday from 4 until 7 where you can score the new YaJagoff tee shirt and proceeds benefit the Pittsburgh Emergency Medicine Foundation.  Plus we may be flying a Pgh parking chair today, but next Sunday see the ultimate Pittsburgh park bench that can be yours by supporting the Lemieux Foundation for a $10 donation to own the perfect seat.  Follow us on social media all week for more details and see both items on tseshop.com for more details.

09:01    Pittsburgh’s “Magedian,” Lee Terbosic is a Flugtag Judge.  Time to make it rain with some bribe money!  He had already been bribed with pierogi!

12:33    The Flying Pittsburgh Parking Chair would not have been possible without some financial support from local businesses. Two of them stopped by with some words of wisdom for the team, Danielle Spinola owner of Tupelo Honey Teas and Ryan Wilkinson, Director of Marketing of Primanti Brothers Restaurants.  Who could eat 20 Primanti sandwiches in one sitting?

18:53    Austin Furey, from the Flugtag team out of Canton, Ohio, Flite-Test, were winners in Boston. He joins us to talk about how they won AND how they plan on beating us with 8th graders designing their Flugtag vessel????

22:44    The Stanley Cup “Pens-WINGs” Flugtag team featured a fake Stanley Cup AND a fake Phil Pritchard (Keeper of the cup).  Dudes were cool! What is their secret?

26:09    Kenneth Wolfe, one of the Regatta Board Members stops by. How long has the Flugtag been in planning?  Can we bribe him to help us win? How much $$ is the Regatta worth to the area?

30:33    The gang from Have Fun, Do Good had a “Back to the Future” hover board craft which included Marty McFly to stand on the oversized hover board as it flew through the air. Their team included Pittsburgh painter, David O’Brien.
    
34:37    Last words from Holly about what is about to happen on the flight deck!

SPONSOR: Total Sports Enterprises will host Charity Sunday at the Mall at Robinson, at the lower level near Sears next Sunday from 4 until 7 where you can score the new YaJagoff tee shirt and proceeds benefit the Pittsburgh Emergency Medicine Foundation.  Plus we may be flying a Pittsburgh parking chair today, but next Sunday see the ultimate Pittsburgh park bench that can be yours by supporting the Lemieux Foundation for a $10 donation to own the perfect seat.  Follow us on social media all week for more details and see both items on tseshop.com for more details.
