Huckleberry Road is an American Country group with rock and traditional country music roots formed by Robbie James and Anthony Vairetta of Sil Shoda. Listen up to hear how they transitioned from a well known hard rock band to Reno country staples.

If you listened to the show you heard our call for murder songs. We aren’t kidding! I think… Regardless, send in your stuff. We will make that Reno murder song compilation happen. Thanks again to Huckleberry Road for hanging out with us this week. Check in next week for Cowboy Indian!

Blacklisted – Still Pissing Off the Neighbors

S8 E2

Welcome! Kim and Rory played hooky this week, but fortunately our other hosts Nick, Chewy, and Dogwater Dick were present to pick up the slack. Press play right now to hear some SUPER SECRET (okay, it’s not secret, but it is SUPER) Grimtones news that you’ll only hear on the Worst Little Podcast! This weeks show has everything – astrology, tales of auto-erotic asphyxiation, and uncomfortable silences. Pretty much in that order!

Our guest this week is Reno Jackson 5 cover band experimental, psychedelic alt-rock band, Blacklisted. Established in 2015, Blacklisted is what happens when you form a band while on drugs (calm down, it’s legal now!). The band is busy writing new music and is planning on a spate of February and March shows.
