May 18: Pop-Ed, we hardly knew ya'

By Jake Brennan
04:00 PM

So all of us over here at Folk Hero Industries would like to say thanks to all of you for tuning in to two wicked killah weeks of Pop-Ed. We're hitting the dole after today, but we wanted to let you know that we had a blast waking up every morning and trying to find different ways to make the news entertaining.

Now that we're officially unemployed, we're taking aim at the co-captain's chair over in Tom Finneran's studio. Tommy, forget about Bernie McGuirk. Drop the zero and get with the folk heroes. Give us the gig. We know how to give the people what they want. More important, we've never kept company with Imus. Then again, you used to hang with Billy Bulger so what do we know? Keep swinging low, Tommy.

Thanks to everyone at and to everyone who helped out with the videos over the last two weeks. Thanks for putting up with us. We'd also like to extend a ginormous thank you to everyone out there on the Web who tuned in to watch the Pop-Ed ridiculousness. Camp St. Studios, Fenway Recordings, Joan Hathaway, WBOS and Luke, Colin, Derek and Evan at Folk Hero Industries.

See you all soon. Teddy Boys unite!
