Hey folks, having some technical difficulties with the Interwebz. Evidently our show is too cool for school, so we’re going to have to wait until after 3pm PST or so to get this up.
Before we get started, we want to take a moment to offer our condolences to the many people affected by the tragedy at the Reno-Stead Air Races last week and their families. The Worst Little Podcast also wants to acknowledge the TREMENDOUS outpouring of help and support from the Reno community – lots of emergency personel and medical staff dropped everything they were doing to help out and the Red Cross was overwhelmed by people responding to requests for donors last Friday and throughout the weeknd. Sincerely – way to go, people of Reno! (And everywhere else nearby!)
To the show! Chewie is of course, off on some Carribean Island sipping beers on the beach while we slave away at Ye Olde Podcaste. So, we decided to have a REALLY good band in this week – the every entertaining and eclectec and exciting, MERKIN! A’lan Bur’ton, Dane DeLucchi (<—spelled right!) and Jeremy Morrow bring it with some teaser tracks from their upcoming, as yet unfinished, CD and smashing live performances. They even play for us their very newest song – and it’s a ripper!
I’d like to take another moment out to acknowledge the struggle of one of the members of the band. A’lan Bur’ton, afflicted with being a ginger and former slave. Please whatever you do, don’t address him by his slave name, Alan. He is A’lan, premeire Reno artfag and we should accord him all due respect. Don’t call him Alan, he really doesn’t like it. His struggle is an inspiring and moving one, including his harrowing experience in the porn industry. That part of the Merkin interview didn’t get recorded, unfortunately, but it was a really cool segment, I swear.
So yeah, I don’t really have much else except to say 1) you should listen to the show, 2) you should check the facebook page to WIN FREE TICKETS TO THE MERKIN SHOW AT THE KNIT ON THURSDAY 9/29, and 3) go hang out at Jeremy’s bar.
Oh, and 4) Thanks for Listening!
Nick randomly met these guys playing beer pong at the CalNeva. They’re fucking awesome. I think this is our longest episode EVAR.
Hello everybodee! Hope you’ve been having a great couple of weeks and enjoying the end of the summer; we all sure have. Between Burning Man, the Rib CookOff, The Discovery Museum Opening, the Balloon Races, Reno Aces, art shows, rock shows and some pretty spectacular weather, Reno has HELLA been the place to be. Nick regales us with
a bunch of “this one time, at Burning Man” crap some great stories from the playa. Rory can’t stay out of the spotlight so he tells SOMEBODY ELSE’S playa story that he’s already heard. Nick has more epic tales to tell, but we couldn’t fit them all in this week. He’s going to finish up with his journal in the next few episodes, but we had to move on to more immediate exciting things – like our gursts Del Mar.
Unlike most of the artists and performers on the show, we didn’t really know of these guys except by reputation before the show, so it is an episode of discovery! (Not like that!
Unless Rick (or Rory) needs to fess up to something. ) Matt Bode and Mike Martinez of Del Mar stop by this week. If you don’t know, you really should check them out. Great surf/rockabilly/drunkpunk/cowpunk from some local kids, including a female singer, Nicole. The kicker is that the two dummies we talked to somehow hooked up with the fantastic talent of Bud Gaugh (Sublime)! Unfortunately, Bud and Nicole couldn’t make it tonight, but we’re going to try to get them all in here in the spring.
This is a SUUUUPER long episode – it hits the 1:40 mark! I hope you’ve got some time to kill. Our little one hour show keeps growing and growing! Thanks to loyal listener Jude Mayne, we just hit 150 likes on Facebook! (although, that number could be higher, slackers… Tell your friends to like us! Even if they don’t! We’ll play the fake internet friend game!) Once again, it’s been a lot of fun. Thanks for listening.

Preparation is futile; prepare to be entertained.
We try to book you QUALITY performers in this studio every week. It’s like a job an’ shit to us. This week, however, we had a problem getting the band, Seasons of Insanity in here. I’m going to blame it on Charter, since one of them had to be at work late. Seasons of Insanity will join us on another episode later this fall – keep listening.
Instead, we have some of our favorite people riding the mic with us this week. Layla James joins us again and is utterly crushed that her score on the Worst Little Quiz in the World was destroyed by Andy 86 last week. She’s going to have to go out and have LOTS of random sex to climb back up there, so, gentlemen, check out that website
for all your stalking related information to see if Layla’s the woman of your dreams! (…if I didn’t have a wife, I tell ya…)
Chewie is still sticking around, but Nick is off in the playa being a dirty hippee for another week or so. The Codiak, Dakota Joe also joins us in the studio. It’s always a problem when Codiak and Chewie are in the studeio. They’re funny, but they’re also quiet on the radio. Maybe more beer would help – no. No. We’ve already established that that is a bad idea.
Rory brings two contributions to the show – a disturbing news story and a more personal story about Rick and Rory ‘back-in-the-day’. Very family friendly – if your family is a bunch of tweakers. Also, we feature the recorded music of Pinky Polanski, The Shames, and Dogwater Dick himself! The Shames are going to start recording with Rick next monday, so no show. On the plus side, it means that we are just that much closer to having what is arguaby Reno’s best punk band actually in the studio with us.
So, on that note – there is no show next week. It’s Labor Day. I’m gettin’ me some barbecue.
See you in two weeks… and thanks for listening!
