Meet Brandon Blatchford

Bside sat down with 11 year old Musician/Singer Brandon Blatchford to discuss his incredible 2022 summer!

Brandon discusses what it feels like to open for some of Gloucester’s Bands and Musicians; John Jerome, Bob Davis Trio, David Doc, Sam Pallazola and who he would like to perform with next (we’re looking at your Mystery Meat and Chris Fritz Grice).

Listen in to hear what it is like to be an 11 year old with some pretty great inspirations and some awesome bucket list ideas!

We can’t wait to see what is next for Brandon!

Alicia Unleashed- The Mini Viva

Episode 105-The Mini Viva!!!

Weeeee’re baaaaaack! Did you miss us?!


We got Alicia, BSide and of course our resident Fiesta Mayor/Queen Samantha Barrett! Even Emmet stops by to give us some impressive VIIIIIIIIVAS! Props to Samo and ‘The Crazy Hat Ladies’ for our epic intro!

Probably our shortest episode ever and shortest Fiesta Cast…It’s not MINI VIVA FER NUFIN?!

We chat about live music being back (we see you Neon90s),

Can we also talk about how Sam refuses to have a gap in “Pin Life” and made her own again this year?!

The Island Cowboy is back in the saddle and Runaround Sound got the band together to give us 3rd of July feels on the Boulevard!

Shoutout to @glostagear for the amazing shirt also featured on our cover!

Be safe this weekend and be kind to hospitality, like Sam says “Don’t be a gahgutzah”

See you soon Mom’s Kitchen!

Back Stage at the Superbowl

Imagine being in college on 2007 and being asked to volunteer for an event helping build a stage.

Now fast forward to 14 years later and that first event you volunteered for has been listed as one of the “Greatest Super Bowl Halftime Performances of All Time” and you were part of it and witnessed it from backstage.

That is only the beginning of the story of our guest this week Lamarr Rollins! BSide and Lamarr have known each other for 10 years this month and she has been trying for 4 years to get him to come on the show, IT FINALLY HAPPENED!

Come take a journey with Bside and Lamarr on what it is like to be part of the Super Bowl halftime show, how to juggle a full time architect job and how to pull off a Halftime show in a Pandemic. Also Lamarr asks some of B’s burning questions she’s had over the years and expresses her loathing for Maroon 5.

Stick through some the rants as Lamarr drops behind the scene knowledge on us as well as talking about the family he’s come to know volunteering every year and how they are doing in the Pandemic era.

Alicia Unleashed -The Return of the Mo’ bros

Episode 102!

Listener Discretion is advised for this one. We said it in our opener but we must repeat, the Cast of Alicia Unleashed and our Guests are NOT medical/psychological professionals.


IT’S OUR ANNUAL VISIT WITH THE MO’BROS, Ben Cannon, Geoff Turke and Tom Leard!


We catch up with the guys and talk about what has happened in the last year since we left Tom’s dining room table! 3 Weddings, Baptisms, New Jobs, 18 month olds, 17 month olds and of course we talk about Zooming!

Just like the past 2 years sitting down with the ‘Bros, we discuss Men’s Health and the Movember Movement. This year being the year it is, the ‘Bros and the Movember Movement have focused more on Awareness and Mental Health Awareness and we get iiiiiiiiiiiin to it!

We discuss what it is like to be part of a movement that is about Awareness of Prostate & Testicular Cancers and Male Depression as it is raising funds for programs to assist with awareness in a PANDEMIC! (unsure if you guys knew we were in one).

In true Alicia Unleashed fashion, WE TALK ABOUT BALLS (and self exploration…probably the best moment in 102 episodes)!

If there is anything you do this week, give it a listen or give the website a look (or give this episode a like or a share).

The half St. Peter- 2020 Fiesta Cast


The Half St. Peter..aka 2020’s Fiestacast

Or aka “BSide will edit the shit out of this”

There may not be an altar at Fort square, no seine boats or Dory races in the Harbor, no zazitzas in front of the club. BUT ALICIA UNLEASHED WILL STILL HAVE OUR FIESTA CAST…SCREW YOU COVID.

Happy 16th birthday to Tyler D! Alicia discusses him coming in to the world in basically preventing his father from walking the pole. BSide discusses (maybe for far too long about her mother going through process for a Double Lung Transplant) ties in to Fiesta.

AND SAM BARRETT IS BACK. Also Bside’s neighbor Nikkita silently joins in.

Join us for this wild podcast ride (it’s not like you have plans)…VIIIIIIII….oh wait…

See if you can spot BSide’s editing magic.

Thank You, Gunner Muth

Episode 92-(on location)

For the past 23 years, Gunner Richard Muth has educated thousands of teenagers on the North Shore as an Iinstructor for the MCJROTC at Gloucester High School (aside from a year or two in Lynn).

This is his final year as an Educator/Instructor/Mentor at GHS. Prior to this, he served his country in the United States Marine Corps for 20+ years as an Infantry Instructor before retiring. Not knowing what to expect teaching high school students, he embarked on a decades-long journey that has left an impressionable impact on students and colleagues alike. B-Side even got a little help honoring Gunner from some friends.

B-Side sits down with Richard Muth to talk about his 23 years as an educator; what it has meant to him, and what it is like to teach teenagers of Gloucester. He even confirms that B-Side did, in fact, throw a desk (but don’t worry—the statute of limitations is over).

Gunner Muth would also like to invite the public to join them in celebration on Thursday May 16th at 6pm in the auditorium for the ROTC Awards Night to honor those students for their achievements for the school year.

It was Military Appreciation Month as well as National Teacher Appreciation Week during this recording.

Alicia Unleashed would like to also thank to following for their participation in this recording:
Rick Moore, Lisa Cusumano Gray, Kayla Pinkham, Kara Wagner, Sarah Bondarev, Jen Duston, Jessica Gross, Aaron Smith, Annette Parco, Chris Severance, Jon Blair, and Peter Cannavo.


I cannot begin to express the amount of gratitude I have for you as an educator because, let’s be real, you were unlike any other teacher I’d ever had. You were patient, tolerant, funny, and had different, undetectable ways of teaching us life lessons. While I was part of your formative years when you were getting your feet wet as a “teacher of teens,” and we tested your limits every chance we could get, you are still the same Gunner you were in ’96. The impact that you have left on your students runs deep. Without you, I believe I never would have survived through or graduated from high school. Thank you, Gunner, for your Service, both to our Country and to us Students.

Crease that Uni one last time and then hang it up. Congratulations on your retirement; you’ve earned it.
