Good News and Bad News, everyone!
Key, kids! What’s up?!? It’s a fantastic week over here at the palatial Dogwater Studios. The good news is that Evil Dead: The Musical has completely sold out the run of the show – you’ll have to catch us in 2015 if you didn’t see it yet. The bad news is that The Annual Dogwater Punkin’ Carving Party is cancelled this year. Dogwater Dick wants to take one year in 20 off, so we guess that’s fair.
In the long and storied tradition of the show, we picked up a guy at the open mic to play on the show. Angel Garcia, Reno musician and singer, joins us this week to rattle out some of his songs on the innerwebs. Garcia has actively been playing music in Reno for the last year or so, typically as a solo act, but also with a few bands. Prior to Northern Nevada, he was in SoCal, where he gained the moniker “Toxicblinds” as a DeeJay. Despite his rough and freakish exterior, Angel sings like… (not gonna say it!) a pretty pop star. It’s not exactly bubblegum punk rock, but he shure dew have a purty voice.
Early in the show, we take a phone call with Reno’s own #1 female comedian, Jenny PezDeSpencer! Jenny is having another live show at Jub Jub’s on November 8 that she wants you to go to. Her sets are raucous and awesome and delightfully offensive. Take a chance! Be a part of a live comedy album and chekkit out.
In a surprise move, “Magic” Larry Cooper drops by the studio and sits in with us for a whole to tell us about his new album that he’s been recording with Dogwater Dick. Larry’s a dick. He totally hijacks Angel’s show
and gets really drunk and breaks stuff. At least he pays his dues and takes part in the quiz.
Don’t forget, in the spirit of the season, come check out the Rocky Horror Extravaganza with music by Pinky Polanski and hosted by Thee Reverend Rory Dowd. Tickets will go fast for them, so get them online now or at the Whitney Peak main desk. Happening on Halloween 10/31/14 there is an all ages show at 8pm and an all adults show at midnight
Thanks for Listening
What say ye, weary traveler?

Holy crap, it’s hot as fuck in Reno, despite the fairly unprecedented 4 days of serious rain in a row. Hope you all are keepin’ cool and pulling a Saturday Night Fever! Whoo! In Studio this week, we have Bill McKean and Zeke Griffin from Strange on the Range, a Reno blues/Americana/
Blurgrass BLUEgrass band. No. Hell with It – They are Blurgrass. Made that shit up just now I did. Bill plays guitar and Zeke plays Mandilins. Actually, he freaking makes the suckers. Custom and cool and – damn!
Strange on the Range is a featured act at The Morris Burner Hotel’s Reno Folk Festival, happening this weekend as a part of Artown. If you haven’t been to a show at the Morris yet, you are missing out on a whole lot of what’s happening in the Reno art and performance worlds. Three days of folk music, a trip backwards in time, covering current era, the 60s, and traditional roots of folk music, as a tribute to Pete Seeger, who died earlier this year.
Jill Marlene, event organizer, also joins us partway through the episode and joins the guys on a couple songs. It’s , once again, a fun episode, but it got hot in the studio. It’s hot now. I’m done.
Thanks for listening.
Siddown and listen up!
The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E20 It’s another fine week in the Biggest Little and I hope you’re out enjoying the fantastic weather! This week we are very happy to welcome Chari Boom Brap into the studio. Chari is one of the movers and shakers in the Reno spoken word and hip hop circles. If you don’t already know her name, you should, because she makes it happen. Featured prominently as the front woman for Knowledge Lives Forever for the past few years, Chari brings tracks from her own new solo project, Download This, on the show with us. Her words run deep.
Chari Boom Brap is as nice as she is hardworking as she is deep thinking. Fortunately, all of her hard work has not gone unnoticed. Chari is happy to announce that this week she is the first rapper to ever be awarded an Artist’s Fellowship from the Nevada Arts Council. This is not small accomplishment and you know she faced some steep competition to be honored with this award. We’re happy to congratulate her on this and you should too. Chari Boom Brap is a hot commodity and has a lot of Reno pride – hopefully some of us will get to ride her coattails one day.
We would also like to congratulate Nate the Intern. He has been promoted to Nathan the Production Assistant! Rick for one looks forward to his continuing work behind the scenes here at WLP. But what would our show be without an intern and whipping boy?? We bring you the next in a long line of losers, JB the Intern!!! JB had a rocky start, batting about .500 in task accomplishments. Listen in this week, because if all goes well, this will be the last time you hear his voice for a while. Thanks for Listening!
Smooth and polished – like your knob.

Rock and roll hoochie koo all over your gabba gabba hey! Rigorous Proof, early guests of the show, come back this week and kick the roof off, reminding us why they’re still a successful rock band in Reno. Johnny Harpo, Adam Landis, Jesse Gaddis and Wes Forester rejoin us in the studio.
The Worst Little Podcast in the World would like to take this time to officially endorse Bob and Mike Grimm for Co-Mayors of Reno. Although they didn’t make it in the free for all primary (finishing with -3 votes), they still remain viable write-in candidates with a platform, WLP can really stand on.
In case you’ve missed them, Rigorous Proof is a 4 piece rock funk band here in the Washoe County. Having gone through some name and lineup changes in the past four years, they are back together as the original band with a whole new set of songs, polished to a sharp keen. Having laid low for a while, they’ve been writing and recording a new album, due out later this year. This episode teases some of their new songs.
This weekend, please join me at Evil Dead: The Musical: The Reno Edition Freak Show Fundraiser. We are putting together funds to help bring this show to Reno in October, coinciding with our Indiegogo campaign. Featuring sideshow and varietal entertainment, this show will wow the socks off you. Come see mentalism, acts representing the peak of physical control, dancing ladies, escapistry and feats of musicianchip, including Lacey Mattison, Cody Canon, Alphabet Cult, The Shames and Pinky Polanski performing the songs of Rocky Horror Picture Show!!! Only $7 – and we have a raffle with great prizes including tattoo gift certificates, cheesecake, a thirty second commercial and more!
Thanks again to Rigorous Proof for coming in and hanging out – they’re a bunch of fun dudes who love making music and telling stories.
Thanks for listening!
