Axe Trax and Imirage Sound Lab: Your Musical Heritage, Reno (Pt.1)
Listen up! This is some serious shit!
So, we’ve talked about it and teased it since last year when we had him on, but it’s finally here: The Second Coming of Tom Gordon. And this time he brought friends and more music! Not just other music, but literally MORE tracks that are a part of the music and entertainment legacy of Reno. Specifically from Axe Trax Studios and Imirage Sound Lab. Joining him are Dr. Davis and Alan from Imiage. Dr. D is a pioneer of recording music in Reno, being a part of the first recording studios in Reno in the late 1970s and early 1980s. To hear him tell it, it wasn’t far off from wax cylinders and telegraph wires. As a musician and sound wizard, Dr. D has helped build the local recording industry, working with national acts and local bands alike. Alan… well, I dunno. I had to leave early and he didn’t get much of a chance to get a word in before I left. But he seemed really nice. I’d totally introduce him to my mom.
(Not really, but that sounds nice doesn’t it.)
Kaysolike I was sayin’, Tom brought a lot of great songs from both Axe Trax and Imirage spanning 30 years. This weekend, 9/29/2012, is the 30th Anniversary of the studio and they brought an enormous amount of audio including Lee Greenwoond, Diana Ross, Lionel Ritchie and local music heroes, Cranium. Now – they brought all of this, but I wasn’t there, like I said. (I had to get down to the Blazing Mic at Jub Jub’s) I don’t know how much they played or what exactly, but the list is tremendous. I know they went for the full three hours again. And once again, we had to split the audio into two separate podcasts!
So, keep listening and we’ll pick this up on the flipside…..

-WARNING: NSFW The Worst Little Podcast in the World is exactly that. It is blunt. It is tasteless tacky and offensive. And it is on the internet. But WLP isn't just for self indulgence, no! It is a chance for us to highlight the Greater Reno Area and everything that makes this town rock.

-Everyone involved in the show is a lifer in Reno and pretty deeply involved with the local scenes. In any one of our stellarly mediocre episodes you can hear Rory, Nick, Josh and Rick talk about what they are up to, interviews with local personalities, live musical performances and maybe, just maybe, something that will make you laugh.
