It’s a Brand New Year, but the Same Dumb Show!
Hi there! Did you miss us? We missed our pre show circle-jerks and all of you listeners over the holiday break. It was a great Christmas and Holiday and New Year’s season for everyone. And how about that weather? Huh? Pretty freaking nice if you ask me. I’ll take clouds and 60/70 degree weather over snow and grey skies every Christmas. But a little snow this year would be nice. It’s pretty to look at from inside. Where it’s warm. Anyway…
In the studio this week are our favorite Carson City duo, Blunderbusst! Jen Scaffidi and Carolyn Gates are always super fun to talk to, and totally on the ball, and super rad musicians. They did not disappoint; we all had a great time and they hammered out three lives songs for us. Great first show of the year, clocking in at about 2 hours. But the mouths on these women! Holy shit! They’d make a sailor’s tattoos blush!
We also hop on the phone with Stacey Tolle, currently with Austin’s ‘The People VS. De La Rosa’, but more importantly formerly of Reno’s #1 all time best band
(according to our listener poll) Gunshot Licker! She’s been back in town for the holidays and *gasp* IS PLAYING GUNSHOT LICKER REUNION SHOW ON FRIDAY, 1/6!!!! It’s a benefit for the Rev. Gary Setzer with the Shames, The Gunner’s Daughter and Blunderbusst at Davidson’s Distillery. It’s going to be pretty fantastic and fun and you should all come out. Seriously, if you live within 200 miles of Reno and haven’t seen Gunshot Licker, you NEED to come see this show. Shit like this just doesn’t happen very often. Yo.
Also Don’t forget – The Worst Live Podcast in Reno on Jan 20 at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor where for the first time we will be recording the show in front of a live bar audience! Contests and games – including a YELLING CONTEST!!! – prizes for the winners and a bucket of ‘suck it up’ for the losers! I expect to see you all there!
We’ve got a great year ahead of us and can’t wait to share another year’s worth of Reno music, art and culture with you.
Thanks for Listening.

Hello, friends, family, acquaintances and
losers of minor note listeners! The warmest felicitations and tidings of the season unto you!!
This is the last show of 2011 and we thought we’d make it special for everyone. Finally, we have the Notorious RAD on the show, after many months of hearing only her vulgar snipes and adorable observations on life (“Felix likes to drink.”); we have some fun and ask her what her favorite parts of Christmas are. And yes, I give her the Worst Quiz Ever; altered, and more saccharine, but a really bad quiz nonetheless. Oh, and my wife, Cheyenne Dowd finally deigns us with her presence, but whatever….
All of us at the Worst Little Podcast are glad to call you friend and wish you the best holiday season you can possibly have as well as some kick-ass momentum going into the new year, 2012 – possibly the last year? Evar? We don’t care about that – we just care about delivering you some nice hot podcast-y goodness. Please enjoy this little offering of holiday cheer, including some non-traditional local Christmas tunes. We love you all and stay tuned for us in January when we’ll have BLUNDERBUSST, TREVER CROW, a LIVE SHOW AT JUB JUBS on January 20th with the SHAMES and AVERSION THERAPY, and many more hometown heroes and Reno royalty.
Thanks for Listening!
Brrr… It’s time for snow, but I could really use a little spring.
First off, to everyone who came out for the Marianarchy Winter Ball 2011 , we can’t thank you enough. It was a great turnout and a great show. More on that during the podcast.
December is here and it’s time for birthdays and holidays and time with the family and not quite having enought time or money to have fun but for some reason we generally have great memories of it and can’t wait to do it again even though last year we said it was the last time we did this nonsense. *gasp* However, it does mean that we are going to take a little break. This is the second to last show of the year for us – the next should be out the week before Christmas, so stay tuned!
Jonie Blinman and Kristin Pitman were
tricked into happy to come on the show with us this week. If you don’t know who Jonie is, you should – she has been a vital part of the Reno music scene in the past decade, including founding Songwriters in the Round (SITR). Kristin is no slouch either, a talented violinist and guitarer in her own right. She’s also a baker!
They left our fair city at the end of last year to cut their teeth on NYC. But the Biggest Little Black Hole in the Universe dragged them back, however willingly. They regale us with some stories, some tragic, some funny, some bizzare – but nothing that kept them there. We laughed, we gasped, we almost cried. We’re happy to have them back and hang out on our show!
Enjoy your prelude to the holidays; as I always say, don’t get so high that you can’t understand the anti-drug commercial.
And thanks for listening!
