The Worst Little Podcast – Download Link – S3 E14
Adam Springob joins us this week as a solo artist. He’s been stepping out from above Greg Gilmore’s very small shadow and showcasing his own singing and songwriting. It’s really good stuff. Unfortunately, you won’t hear it!!!! He brought a damn band with him this week. Actually – he brought TWO bands with him to make one giNORmous band called …. Something Or Other. Joining him in the studio are Michelle Belle (guitar - Scarlet Presence), Carter Stellon (drums - Scarlet Presence), Samantha Gates (fiddle), and Greg Gilmore (bass - Kanes NOT Merkin – lets be clear about this: Greg is not in The Merkins. He’s not that good.)
We had a really fun time with these guys – so much fun that Nick and The Rev had to take off before the show was done!!! They’re not even sure what happens yet!!! There is a lot of talking, yelling and chaos - more than usual – really. I’m supposed to take down notes and tease it out here, but I seem to have neglected to do that this week, although there is a really awesome drawing of a polar bear holding a surfboard next to the note “Sam seems so nice – why these a-holes?”.
SO, normally I tell you about the picks for this weekend, right? Well, this week, there is only one show you should concern yourself with (despite what Adam says on the show – srsly, fuck that guy): MARIANARCHY 2013: A BENEFIT FOR DALE KELLAMS!!! Two days, 35 acts, raffles, BBQ, silent auction, monkey juice, and lots of shenanigans!!!! Get your asses to Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor this weekend, May 17 & 18! starts at 3pm on Friday, 2pm on Saturday!
There will also be a Remembering Dale Kellams show at Jub’s Thursday night with his brother, Doug’s band. Please come down for old footage and good friends. All proceeds of this weekend will go to support his widder and orphan, Heidi and Kenobi.

“It’s not the guest’s fault – it’s all mine.” – Reverend Rory
WARNING: I want to start this post with a warning. I, Reverend Rory Dowd, am a big bucket of fail this week. Right out of the gate, I faceplant into a brick wall, every joke I tell and bit of information I say in the first 30 min of the show is wrong wrong wrong WRONG! I apologize in advance. But I was SAVED-uh! Josiah Knight, Reno singer/songwriter, comes in and plays some really killer tunes for us, picking the show right back up. This guy is a new-ish friend to all of us (within the last 365, at least), and a welcome addition to our music scene.
We are also saved early on in the show by a fun interview with Dustin Kaufman of the Weediculous Comedy Tour. He and three other LA area comics are travelling around the country in a minivan, filming a documentary about their tour and the state of marijuana culture in the US today. Many of their stops are in dispensaries and cafes, but here in Reno – we got them coming down to the Shea’s Tavern!! Thursday night, 5/9 (today for most of you) at 9pm he and his cohort will be kicking it off – filming it live for a documentary that should be up on Netflix … at some point. (As we know from Nowhere Nevada, a movie is only finished when it’s done!) Opening up for them are Reno Comedians, Jenny PezDeSpencer and Brandon Lara! Good times….
Before I ruin anything else, I’m going to sign off.
Thanks for Listening!
Holy audio overload, Batman!
Greetings, Worsters! Lovely to see you today. Are you having a good day? Does this seem a little weird? It should, because I’m buttering you up before you get into the hot ear mess that is this week’s episode. We have Merkin in the studio and the boys do not disappoint. They record a couple songs for the first time EVAR here on the podcast.
Other Highlights include:
- Dane drinking Reverend Rory’s Coffee
- Dane and Alán arguing
- Dane talking too loud
- Dane tuning his guitar
- And so on…
It’s a good thing these boys are talented, because this show is just a trainwreck!
It’s not actually as bad as all that – Merkin is a fun bunch of guys that we love and it was great to have them back on the show (mostly). We also spend a few minutes with new friend of the show, Will C! Will is a good ol’ boy from MissouRAH, like The Rev. He took a few to warm up and then dove right into the show with a couple zingers. Will C will be appearing at the Pioneer Underground this Friday and Saturday for three shows. A veteran as well as funnyman, Will C informs us that the shows will be a fundraiser to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, so get out there and support a great cause while you laugh and drink.
And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the other white elephant in the room – Another Return of Chewie!!!! It’s good to have our boy back!
The Reverend’s Show Picks of the Week:
Friday – Creative Coalition Midtown Block Party (Midtown)
Saturday – The Kanes Black Magic CD release party (The Knit)
Anyway, Thanks For Listening!!!
They do it down and dirty. Who? The Kanes, that’s who! On this week’s episode, Greg Gilmore and Adam Springob of The Kanes come in and play us a few songs off of their upcoming album, “Black Magic”. Drummer Mike Orris had better things to do, so we got to hear Greg and Adam duel with guitars. These guys are always fun – if you can decipher what we’re saying when we’re all talking over each other.
I’m a little short on time myself, so I’m gonna give it to you down and dirty as well. The conversations get weird; Greg and Adam really blow it on the quiz; Nick steps up to the plate; Chewie’s still out; Rick and Rory are golden, as always. No-call, no-show on the part of both the Vampirates and The Shames. But at least the shames had a good excuse – they were somewhere near the border south of Phoenix and a lot of police/emergency band radio was making their cell phone reception spotty. We look forward to hearing from them next week? If nothing else, we’ll get a tour recap when they’re on the show in June (yes, really, this time).
Other than that – it’s the regular show. Hope you have a great week and patronize all your local venues and performers and artists! Stop by Reno Computer Fix for a great deal! (And Nick’s password is dubious at best – but I dare you to go in there and tell them)
Thanks for listening!
The Worst Little Podcast in the World!
-WARNING: NSFW The Worst Little Podcast in the World is exactly that. It is blunt. It is tasteless tacky and offensive. And it is on the internet. But WLP isn't just for self indulgence, no! It is a chance for us to highlight the Greater Reno Area and everything that makes this town rock.
Find us on the iTunes store!
-Everyone involved in the show is a lifer in Reno and pretty deeply involved with the local scenes. In any one of our stellarly mediocre episodes you can hear Rory, Nick, Josh and Rick talk about what they are up to, interviews with local personalities, live musical performances and maybe, just maybe, something that will make you laugh.
