It all comes with a disclaimer, and we promise it's all in good fun. Whether Frankie Say Relax or we're elaborating on Didgeridoos, we hope you enjoy this bawdy rock-n-roll romp. The Dirty Bits is the podcast that covers the fierce, sexy, funny, scandalous, freaky, and salacious stories from history your teacher probably left out. What fun!

We closed down with Semisonic, but if that left you smarting, we've got more this time around. We'll give you a little TLC when it's cold outside. Wherever you see paradise we'll be watching you, working hard to give you the time of your life. And like Van Morrison's brown-eyed (?) girl, we'll still love you tomorrow.
Episode 17: Songs About Money, Part 1
It's strange to her: some people seem to have everything, while others get their money for nothing. Well, as Weird Al once said, "If money can't buy happiness, I guess I'll have to rent it."

Episode 20: Songs we Landed on the Moon, Part 2
"Showaddy Waddy" was funny to say, and imagining Ozzy in that fur suit Barking at the Moon was quite a fond memory, and now it's time to howl at the moon with Hank, Fly to the Moon with Hank, and then spend some time pondering the phenomenon of Underworld's "Moon in Water."
