I asked the audience to suggest topics for me to sing about. Tinker Toys and haggis were the suggestions. Hoo boy. (Ditta Caffe, Salt Lake City, UT – 12/3/16)
Clown threats are on the rise in the United States. Our new song is nothing to laugh at.

The latest episode of The Joseph Richards Show is now available online!
In this last episode before summer holiday, Joey Cougar of Joey Cougar & The Starfish took over and shared some of the band’s songs.
Be sure to check out the episode today. It is my favorite one to date. It is also my favorite one to just fool around with on occasion with no pretense of commitment.
And if you like it, please share the show with your friends! You can even follow @JoeRichardsShow on Twitter for the latest news and updates.

I am in a band called Joey Cougar & The Starfish. We formed in Salt Lake City, UT. We went on tour the summer I had a vasectomy.
Somehow our drummer, Kelly Styxxx, booked us this gig where we were headlining an open mic night. I am not sure people were pleased to see a headlining band during open mic. The guy prior to our performance looped his music and played a didgeridoo. He was a hippy and I wanted to throw a hard biscuit at his face.
For tonight’s post, please enjoy this brief video of us playing our song, “Is Kim Jong-Ill?” at Johnny’s on Second in Salt Lake City.
Am I convulsing with anger in this clip? You decide.

Last September, I decided to start a monthly podcast called The Joseph Richards Show. At first, I was writing each episode. About halfway through, I decided to just improvise. I have no idea if the show is better, worse or the same. Only my producer, Tamara, knows. (I’ll have to tell you about Tamara one day.)
Over the last few months, I considered ending the podcast until I could find a website to house it. The site I was using, Podbean, only allowed a certain amount of space and I hit my limit (just under a year into the project).
Fortunately, I found a place to house the show and today, 13 August 2011, I launched www.josephpatrickrichards.com.
Now you can listen to all 10 current episodes of the show and stay tuned for more, including our one-year episode. You can also learn a bit more about me, because you want to, hear music from Joey Cougar & The Starfish and check out some photos. But you cannot currently find recipes there.
