After last week's Comic-Con show, things are returning to normal here at Geektown Radio podcast, as we have all the usual tv news and premiere date info, plus an interview with composer Pat Irwin.

Pat Irwin has been living in and making music in New York City since the late 1970’s. He was a member of the band The B-52's for over 20 years (You can see him on keyboard in the famous 'Love Shack' video) and he also was the composer of classic, hit cartoon series 'Rocko's Modern Life', 'Nurse Jackie' and 'Feed the Beast' to name a few.

More recently, Pat has been Netflix series 'The Good Cop', which stars Tony Danza as Tony Sr. (aka Big Tony), a lovable yet not exactly honourable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr. (TJ), played by Josh Groban, a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules while solving Brooklyn’s toughest cases. This “odd couple” become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice.

Additionally, Pat has recently returned to his earlier work, as Nickelodeon brings out the film 'Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling', which sees Rocko return to O-Town after being in space for 20yrs, and having to deal with a more modern life than ever before!

If that wasn't enough to keep Pat busy, he is also in two bands - the PI Power Trio featuring Sasha Dobson on drums and vocals and Daria Grace on bass and vocals, and SUSS featuring Bob Holmes, Gary Leib, Jonathan Gregg and William Garrett.
