Brian, You should hear a guy in Oz called Bob Downe. He is a lounge singer from the 70's - beautifully recreated by Mark Trevorrow

Richard Cheese is the King! I've been and always will be a loyal fan of his. Thank you, Brian, for doing this show.

Cheeze is the Whiz!

I actually just downloaded a bunch of his songs from my emusic account; cheaper than iTunes...

Great stuff Brian, though no "baby got back", that I know Mr C has performed live? Taking nothing away from the fabulous (other) Mr C, Richard C's version also rockswings!!

But hey, who's complaining...onward and upward to 200...

Wow, great episode. I had never even heard of Richard Cheese before, but now I'm hooked. Keep up the good work! Thanks!

Nice work, Brian! Great music and a great interview. Definately an interesting guy...hilarious that he doesn't care about the truth. Who needs the truth when comedy is at stake.

Oh dear... I note that Rhapsody's list of RC's influences lists... Paul Anka. Anka, of course, wrote the lyrics "I did it his way."
