For the many that don’t know, and for the few that still care, there was once a radio show called The Hideout, that ran from 2003 to 2008 in one form or another. The show was hosted by El Jefe and J-Dubs, and featuring a cast of characters the likes of Tommy Bateman, Chunks Carolla, Matt Albert, Sidcada, and too many more to count.

The show originated in Washington, DC at the mighty 106.7 WJFK, before later moving to Orlando, FL to join Real Radio 104.1, and then appearing in stints heard across the country via XM Satellite Radio, and local markets such as Atlanta, GA, New York, NY, and then back in DC.

Starting as a late-night Saturday show, it would later graduate to weeknights, a position it would hold for most of its run, but would also be heard weekend afternoons, in an alternate form called NEXT!, and an internet-based podcast dubbed the NEXTcast.

The show inspired legions of fans, called The Heretics, who created fan boards, fought MySpace battles, generated new audio and video content, and were very interactive with the show.

So with that serving as background, some Nameless idiot who is bothering to pay for this site for no appreciable reason at all is somewhat-proud to present “The Hideout Radio Archives”, an as-complete-as-possible listing of all things The Hideout, including a show library, best-of albums, and videos.

If you’re a fan of radio, podcasts, or just funny audio of any kind, give this show a chance, because it’s 2024 and honestly radio hasn’t gotten any better, in fact it’s pretty much a dumpster fire these days.
