What You’ve All Been Waiting For, Part 1

December is here, and with it, perhaps the most awaited series of shows from Wine Biz Radio! It’s the Wine Bloggers Conference shows! Randy has finished messing with the audio and puts it up there, along with his occasionally lucid commentary, for your listening pleasure.

It starts with interviews with each of the sponsors of the conference, and ends with a brief chat with The One, The Only, The Gary Vee! Clamp on those headphones!

By The Seat Of Their Pants

The last “live” show of 2008 shows Kaz and Randy hanging it out there, as wild and loose as ever. Join them as they field more questions from the Talkshoe peanut gallery and deliver the most refreshing and hilarious banter known in the wine talk radio world!

The Rant And Rave Show

Randy and Kaz riff on just about everything going on in the world of wine, even politics, with the usual Talkshoe peanut gallery in attendance. It’s another stream-of-consciousness extravaganza!
