If have any questions for Tom and Allan, and are unable to tune-in live, then you can e-mail your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please e-mail them by 12 pm PT/ 3 pm ET/ 8 pm UK time on Friday, November 23, 2012. If you are able to join us live, then tune-in here and join us in chat here, so that you can participate in the conversation.
And now a little bit about the Boffo Yux Dudes:
They’re humorists. That means they go for the occasional highbrow joke among the necrophilia and genitalia comments. The Dudes managed to reawaken from their coma in 2009, creating music new music for the confused masses. Allan Morgan and Tom Giarrosso head this version of BYD with previous members in the wings, ready to pounce if they can make some change out of it.
They’ve been on Dr. Demento numerous times, had an award winning cable TV show, are enshrined in the Periodic Table of Geek Musicians, Official Selections for the SNOB Film Festival, and now plan to take a nap until it’s time for the early bird special at The Sizzler. Yum!

The more factual side –
They produced 1000’s of bits, skits and interactive demos for Radio and TV shows until the mid 90’s when the market dropped out for comedy syndication.
In 2009, Tom reconnected with Al Morgan to start up a band for the music contest ‘Masters of Song Fu’. Even though they haven’t seen each other in 20 years, they’re still producing music via the internet from Boston to Chicago. In 2012, actual musician Chris Cogott joined the fun and helped create songs with them for SpinTunes.
