Satellite Serenade – Happy Turkey Day, Turkey

Gobble Gobble!

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E38 – Download Link

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We are all enjoying a day with our families, and if you’re listening to the podcast on Turkey Day itself, well, have a drink with us too! We are all so thankful that we have been able to bring this show to you for the better part of four years and feature all sorts of sides of the Reno music scene.

The exuberant Margy Ford

This week, we have Satellite Serenade, a Reno alt-pop duo. Satellite Serenade features the always fun Margy Ford on vocals and the talents of Jon Cornell backing her up on vocals and guitar. Jon and Margy have played together many times before in other projects, but this is their first time as a dynamic duo and they are mindblowing. Great songwriting and strong vocals are a hallmark of this young band.

We also make a few calls on the episode. First we talk to Joe Atack about his upcoming show at Bruka Theater, Ham for the Holidays. It’s a fun farce about the holidays and an old timey radio station – a true nerdfest for all of you audiophiles. The interview is during a rehearsal and the cast passes around the phone and we are treated to some interviews with the characters themselves. Ham will open on 12/5/14.

 

We also have a chat with our favorite mentalist, Xelena Empress of the Impossible! She treats us to a few feats over the phone, but is she always right? Listen for more! YOu can also check her out at the next Blazing Mics and see if you can win her $500 prediction challenge – she picked next Monday’s football game and is putting a parlay card, among other valuables, on the line.

Our family keeps growing and we welcome, Cole the Honkey to the show as Rick’s newest intern. But enough about him. If you want to catch Satellite Serenade, they will be playing at Marianarchy in just a few weeks. Chek them out and support a local artist at the same time!

Thanks for Listening.

Jub Jub’s Hot and Sweaty Walk of Shame

Worst Little Podcast – Episode 024

How could you NOT trust faces like these?

Hot enough for ya? Actually, we’ve all been enjoying the pretty awesome weather we’ve been having this summer. HOWEVER, the studio is quite different. Our cooling system is mildly noisy – an ancient window unit and a ceiling fan with a 2″ wobble (no shit – there have been times I’ve thought it was going to shake itself loose and kill me).
We start the show off this week remembering a good friend of ours, Jim Martin. He passed away this past Friday, surrounded by loved ones. Jim was a prolific director, educator, patron of the arts and a generally “hardcore awesome” guy. His family plans to organize a celebration of his awesomeness in the next few weeks. Check Brüka and Good Luck MacBeth for details soon. Jim’s final directorial work, Oedipus: the King will continue its run, through July 30th at Brüka Theater. Additionally there will be a staged reading of his adaptation of Clytemnestra on July 24th, also at Brüka. Jim was a visionary and active force in the Reno arts community. He will be sorely missed.
 In studio we have some of the people we’ve tricked into advertising with us our sponsors, Faith and Josh from Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor! Normally, they say a lot more but the microphones scared them. Or maybe it was the heat. And the beer. Probably the beer. We are happy to have them on board with us (as if you couldn’t tell). They were less than happy that we had them come over ans sit in the sweat lodge for a 5 minute plug. Ah! The joys of fake radio. Josh and Faith end their segment powering through the first and fastest Rapid Fire Quiz.
After the break, we shoot the breeze with notorious Reno rockers Walk of Shame, on the road back from self-destruction, playing great music while they do it (at least, on the CD they sound pretty good). Jeff Done, Suta Bogale and Dan Harmon make it in with us.  Preston didn’t make it because he’s a freaking flaky-ass drummer and we don’t like him anyway! *grumble grumble* We share some spectacular bad ideas we’ve all had over the years.
Nick has an update on the Hella Acapella Saga. Rory throws some shout-outs to some new listeners (is it YOU???) and has presents. Chewie is back out in the field (…well, really under it) and Rick hasn’t done a goddamned thing because he’s on vacation – for real this time!
We had a lot of fun this week and hope you do too. Thanks for listening.

Tom Plunkett v. Battle Born Derby Demons

Click here for audio >>>>  Worst Little Podcast – Episode 011  <<<<

I’ve really got to stop plugging next week’s episode*…

Chewie’s back in the house  with absolutely nothing interesting to say about working in Winnemucca. So instead, we talk with bur biggest celebrity yet: as seen on basic cable between the hours of 11pm and 6am all across Washoe Valley, the fabulous Mr. Tom Plunkett. A multi-talented creator and artist, Tom regales us with tales of high colonics and ruining Shakespeare. He also plays some pretty mean guitar while visiting the Dogwater Studios.

But Tom is not alone this week. Irma Geddon from the Battle Born Derby Demons stops by to plug the season home opener at Lawlor this Saturday. IF you’re not familiar with BBDD, let me explain: girls on wheels+scoring system+mild violence=awesome. The sport has seen a resurgence in the last number of years all across the country and the Battle Born Derby Demons have been representing Reno with pride. Irma also has a super sexy voice. You would pay to listen to her read a phonebook. Trust me.
NEXT WEEK: somebody cooler than me?

*(So, last week I mentioned that Greg Allen was going to be on the show this week, but we never got a confirmation. Greg left me some jive ass message about being abducted by aliens and anally probed by his modem. Whatever, cool guy. We’ll talk later.)
