Check out this tweet that was deleted from the @HellaMegaTour page, but because its the internet in 2019 nothing is ever deleted, which features Billy Joe singing announcement details sporting a T-Shirt with the weezer and Fall Out Boy logos...
Green Day will announce the 'Hella Mega' tour -- with #FallOutBoy and #Weezer -- this week! September 10 should be quite a day...
We certainly had a fun summer this year doing the Morning Show with Anthony so lets take a look back at some of the best moments!
Lets start at the start of the summer when Christie Brinkley tried to get me naked...
We got to sit and chat with Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes and GE Smith which was one of my favorite interviews of the summer! Taylor broke the news that Dawes has new music coming and I got to sit back and watch these two genuises talk about their experiences with Bob Dylan!
Another great interview this summer came when Alan Alda visited us in studio! I just love this man!!
Amy Helm called in to the home studio to talk about Woodstock, Her dad Levon Helm and more!
Tammy Pescatelli joined us for a conversation about our shared heritage
Robin Wilson came back for a rarely allowed 2nd interview on the Morning Show to talk about taking over for The Smithereens after Pat Dinizio passed away...
Then there was that time that young kids didn't know who David Lee Roth was
And we lost WPLJ but learned about this incredible side of Dave Matthews
Plus we got to know 2019 breakout artists The Black Pumas
We documented Neil Young's shift from live shows to digital in our ever changing world
And Bruce backed that up with a concert film instead of a tour and the best advice of the summer!
We hung with friends at the Southampton Publick House for the Kentucky Derby!
And ofcourse talked about doughnuts
We crowned new Real Band Battle Champions! The Rock Creek Kings!
We were introduced to Angry Bagel Guy and forget about him just as quickly
We became obsessed with Lizzo
We learned about tech and the future of 5G from our pal Syed of Doha Inc
And we ended our summer reviewing the 2019 VMA's (More Lizzo) and the hilarious Sebastian Maniscalco
And I achieved my life long dream of becoming a world class show jumper at the Hampton Classic Horse Show!
It was an incredible summer... Oh, and the Morning Show Vlog surpassed 1 MILLION VIEWS!!!!
And its all thanks to you, the best audience in radio today... Thank you!!
The Daily Show came out to the Hamptons this week to film a segment about the Shinnecock Indian Nation's Billboard on the side of sunrise Highway.
One of the shows correspondents, Michael Kosta, can be seen in the photo below both on the billboard and in front filming with Tribal Council Chairman Bryan Polite and others.
The piece will appear on an episode in September...
Credit to Michael for the creativity but not sure it beats our bit... Sorry Mike!

Great to have Dave Kennedy, The Executive Director of the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce and Mark Burford, the Co-Founder and President of Blue Point Brewing in studio to chat about this year's Alive After Five! The 18th Year kicks off this Thursday at 5pm on Main Street.
I'm not sure if there is anyone more excited to get the new Bruce record!!! I feel like no one is and then I get on the air and talk about Bruce and the reaction is huge... So it feels like you guys are right there with me!
Every day I hope for a new track and today is one of those days... Bruce just dropped a new video from his forthcoming solo album Western Stars called Tucson Train!
This album is no doubt a solo effort but as we can see from this video, there's a pretty big band backing up the boss... Good to see Patti in this vid as well!
Western Stars is out 6/14, you can pre order your copy by clicking the album below!
Here's a list of some recipes that I've made and some that I still want to try because they're so intriguing that are perfect for your Memorial Day Weekend plans whether your hosting a BBQ, going to a BBQ, or just want to have a nice light refreshing snack at the beach or park!
We've scoured instagram for the best dishes so if you want the full recipe just click on the gram and go to the link in description for all the info!
Watermelon Bruschetta Stars
Perfect if you're going to someones barbecue and you're looking to get some compliments for your creation... These things look great, taste great, and are very instagramable!
#SidesAreImportant... Everyone is going to look for the burger and ribs this summer but lets not act like sides aren't super important... I mean where would thanksgiving be if all we ate was turkey... We'd be dry and bored. So get good sides! Here's the key to good sides... Pasta filled with cheese, any cured Italian meat, insert whatever green here... #YoureWelcome
Ok, we've covered sides so lets get to a meat I love! I've been obsessed with Asian spices lately... And its right in the title... There's something about that balance between sweet and spicey that I love so much. So try these ribs... You won't be disapointed!
Speaking of balance... Our Brews N Grooves craft beer pick for this summer is the Long Ireland Beach, Please Golden Ale! What a wonderful balance of malt, hops, and lemon peel. Perfectly accesible for the rookie and hard core craft beer drinker and it works on the boat, at the beach, or barbecue!
The term watermelon pizza sounds disgusting, but just take a look at this thing. Its kind of a cool way to serve a watermelon. Just like with our watermelon star suggestion its very gramable and the kids are going to enjoy eating all this fruit!
Our list may seem a little lite up till this point so lets bring in the brisket! If you have the time and can smoke some meat this summer we liked the look of this recipe... The the results are in the gram!
OK, so you want steak... There's plenty of good recipes for marinades but we found this topping to be super special! Ramps may be hard to come by (try specailty stores or Whole Foods) but the combo with Gruyere is to die for... And we might in fact die from this... #LotsOfCaloriesAndCholesterol
Continuing with my recent Asian Food Obsession comes this great recipe! Its perfect for those that don't want to eat too bad before we get into bikini season but don't want to sacrifice any flavor! I will say, if you're going to make this make sure you get some good Kimchi! We haven't tried our pal Jason Weiner's Kimchi yet from L&W Market in Bridgehampton but we've heard nothing but good things and he's so damn good we're sure it'd fit in perfect on this dish!
By now we've all seen the famous Starbucks cup in the middle of a scene on Game of Thrones. How can someone be so irrisponsible to leave such a modern item in the middle of a time piece like Game of Thrones is beyond us... But after seeing the Starbucks cup on this past weeks episode.
The Morning Show with Anthony Investigative team sprung into action! After coming through hours and hours of nude scenes, blood weddings and episodes that were way to dark, we uncovered 5 other instances where modern items made it into a scene on HBO's Game of Thrones!
Dave Grohl and Brandi Carlile rocked a 20-minute acoustic set in front of the Pikes Public Farmers Market, in Seattle! Carlile, who lives in Ravensdale, Washington, decided to visit her old busking haunt, and invited the Foo Fighters frontman to join her! The famous twins, Phil and Tim Hanseroth, regulars in Carlile's band joined in as they covered The Beatles’ “Let It Be” and closed with Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These”!
Beck just released a new single, “Saw Lightning,” a stunning new track written and produced by Beck and Pharrell Williams! “Saw Lightning” is the first track to be released from Beck's forthcoming Hyperspace, to be released at an as yet undetermined point in the space time continuum. Hyperspace will be Beck’s 14th album, following 2017’s GRAMMY-winning Colors
2017 was a great year for both Beck and Pharrell where Beck’s 2017 album Colors won the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album, Pharrell won the Grammy for Producer of the Year!
In January, Beck released “Tarantula,” a song for the Oscar-nominated film ROMA. He also dropped a track with Cage the Elephant just in time for their joint tour this summer!

Robert Smith was on hand backstage at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony when he was asked about the upcoming Disintegration 30th Anniversary Shows planned for Sydney Austrialia and whether or not they planned on expanding to more than just the 3 dates announced
Smith outlined the genesis of their decision saying that they marked the anniversary’s of their first three albums in Australia and that they, “just wanted to do something to mark the anniversary of Disintegration because it obviously means a lot to me and a lot to the band.”
Smith continued, “As often happens with these things, I wanted it to be kinda low key, but the interest since we’ve announced it has been such that we are now looking at venues to do it in other places…”
The last time The Cure toured through they states they planned smaller venues than what it would take to pull of the style of shows they’re planning for Disintegration.
“We might just do two or three or four… Big shows across North America with the full kinda thing… Because its quite of a grandiose thing...”
Although not sure where exactly these anniversary shows will land, Smith concluded with, “Before the end of the year I’m sure we will have played in North America with it.”
The 34th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by Klipsch Audio, was Friday, March 29, 2019 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and EHM was there, BACKSTAGE covering all the action!
Ballots were sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, including current living Inductees, historians and members of the music industry. Factors such as an artist’s musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration.
Three of the Inductees were on the ballot for the first time, including: Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks (as a solo artist) and Roxy Music. Additionally, the top five artists, as selected by the public, comprised a “fans’ ballot” that was tallied along with the other ballots to determine the 2019 Inductees. Four of the top five artists (Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, The Zombies and The Cure) from the fan ballot will be inducted as performers in 2019.

Simon LeBon and John Taylor of Duran Duran explained how they never would have formed their own group without the influence of Roxy Music, whose art-rock stylings and outrageous fashion made a huge impact on them as kids. As they inducted them into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame they cited WLIR radio specifically as one of the... Read more...

From Flea: “Before each new place my body tingled with excitement, a yearning for a new mystery to unfold, a fascination with a new culture, the possibility of new friends, tasting new food, smelling new tastes, absorbing new rhythms. Learning. Learning. Learning. It is happening again right now, my heart is abuzz with joy at the prospect of performing in Egypt. I’m so grateful and humbled for the impending experience.”
James Dolan had a guy tossed from MSG for being disrespectful... The fan heard in this video shouted to Dolan, "Sell the team," as he walked by. I bet he didn't expecet him to stop and have this exchange...
On one hand, this seems very petty and you'd think that James Dolan would have better things to do... BUT!!!! On the other hand, I do quite enjoy a good power wielding situation and thats what we got here... Including the ever popular power weilding move of just knodding to a big security guy in a suit with one of those walky talky things on his inner wrist.... #Impressive
According to TMZ, witnesses saw two cops and MSG security make their way to the fan and get his information. If you're wondering whether or not this turns into a lifetime ban, the New York Daily News, is reporting Garden reps said, “Our policy is and will continue to be that if you are disrespectful to anyone in our venues, we will ask you not to return.”
