Seasoned troubadour Cole Adams wandered on into the podcast this week to play some tunes for us. Cole is a singer/songwriter new to the 775; most recently he had been living and playing in LA, having moved there from St. Louis, MO. Lots of love for ‘The Lou’ this week and The Rev and Cole gush at each other a little bit. After many years of strong performances, Adams struck out west, landing in LA for a time. He had the opportunity to play and record with Generations, a San Diego area band. This is also where he met hew partner, Stevie Rose, at a coffee shop. Stevie Rose is a henna artist working in the Reno/Carson/Sparks and Stead area. (You can find her designs or contact her for services at Heart of Henna.) The couple recently moved to the Reno area for new opportunities.
Cole will be appearing all summer long at The Renaissance and you can find out more about that on Cole’s Facebook page. Cole will be appearing at Ceol in a few weeks and will be a featured performer at the July “Loud As Folk”. Cole also has a Youtube channel, Cole Adams Music, where he will be releasing new videos every week.
As you may have gathered, this is not Kadillac Kim writing this. Kim had a major surgery this week and will be out of commission for a few weeks. At the time of this writing, Kim is healing well and itching to get back home. We wish her well and are excited for her to be fully healed and able to live her life again. WE LOVE YOU KIM!!!!!
Thanks for Listening.

Welcome back to the Worst Little Podcast! This week’s show is a special one. It’s our 300th episode! The whole crew is here and joining us is excellent Grass Valley punk duo, Slutzville. This week’s episode will leave you saying things like “this makes me want to get out there and dance but I’d throw out my back!” and wondering “what’s an Alaskan pipeline?”, and also, “how did these beans get in my bed?” Before we get to the music, here’s a special message from Rory on behalf of all of us at the podcast:
Seven years and three months ago, we had no idea what we were doing. We really weren’t sure how to make a podcast; we weren’t sure how to build an audience, and we certainly had no idea of the great undertaking we had just begun. In the last 300 episodes, I have been lucky enough to witness firsthand the growth and development of hundreds of local musicians, my own friends and the local cultural evolution that we have been a part of for the past near-decade. I have been, and continually am, humbled by the response support and encouragement we have received from our listeners, the musicians, and bands on our show. We are still delighted and tickled that we can be a part of your life every week. Thank you for inviting us into your ears and your brain. You are in our hearts. I would also like to thank my fellow cohosts and creators Nick Ramirez, Rick Spagnola, Josh “Chewbacca” Martin, and Kadillac Kim. I would like to thank them for their continued hard work dedication and passion for this thing we’ve created together. I could not have done this alone and I can think of no better crew to get it done with. You guys are my family. And to all of our interns past present and future keep up the good work. Life is short; I love you. -Thee Reverend Rory Dowd
