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

WLP is looking for raffle donations for this May’s Marianarchy, the biannual celebration of our departed friend and patron saint of Reno Music, Marrianne Sota. This year we are raising money for our friend and Reno local Brian Smith. Brian recently suffered a heart attack and could use some community love. Hit any of us at the podcast up if you have a donation!
Thanks for listening, Reno! We’re pretty humbled by your ongoing support, shares, likes, and comments. If you have an event or band you would like us to promote give us a holler! If you would like to help us pay the taxes and stuff, head over to our Patreon. We are committed to recording and archiving Reno music like we have for the last 7 years but we could use your help! Even a couple of bucks is rad! We are taking next week off so Rick can chill with Jesus and the Easter Bunny, but we will be back April 9th with Alphabet Cult!
-WARNING: NSFW The Worst Little Podcast in the World, bringing you live Reno music since 2010! (plus dick jokes... lots of dick jokes.) It is tasteless tacky and offensive. But WLP isn't just for self indulgence, no! It is a chance for us to bring the musicians you see on stage into your home, car or cubicle. We also like to highlight the Greater Reno Area and everything that makes this town rock.
