Starring our youngest guest yet!!!
The Potentialists of the Potentialist Workshop invade Dogwater Studios this week. Mac Esposito (Bazooka Zoo), Chriselle Vinson, Kelsey Sweet and Axiom Pantoja join support to talk about what the shell a Potentialist and the Workshop is all about. Mostly though, we talked with young Ax. And he spoke the truth!
Mac plays us some solo stuff, some of which are songs he plays with Bazooka Zoo, friends of the show and Reno Space Rockers. Mac joined their lineup a while ago and the sound is out of the galaxy. You can catch them at their next show at The Saint on 5/27/2016.
His lovely wife, Chriselle, whose name I butcher repeatedly throughout the show, is both wonderful and the house masseuse at the Potentialist Workshop. Stop by and check them out- they want to make your art a reality!
Stop by Foxy First Friday this week with my very good friend, Jen Scaffidi. You know and love her. Also don’t forget Reno Sculpture Fest, happening downtown Friday thru Sunday. And – Word to your Moms. Happy Mothers’ Day!
Thanks For Listening!

OMG This was such an awesome show. Good good GOOD friends of the Show, Sit Kitty Sit, drove up to Reno from the Bay Area just to be on the podcast. Kat Downs Gaudette and Mike Thompson are a killer two-piece band that will blow your mind. They started playing shows up here in Reno about a year ago and fell in love with the audiences and venues of our fine city. You can’t keep them away now!
Sit Kitty Sit is keyboard, drums and phenomenal singing. A truly unique act they can and have played with everyone from solo guitarists to full on metal hardcore bands. They first played up here with Lucas Young, a previous guest on the show and great guy who just HAPPENED to also stop by the studio this week to say ‘Hi!’. Sit Kitty Sit ended up staying at Dogwater Studios that weekend and Rick and Kat and Mike all fell in musical love. Since then, they’ve remained in contact with us and played a few more shows in the Sierras. What you get today is just a little taste of their amazing live show. Super fun, witty and talented, you don’t want to miss the,
Before I sign off, I just want to remind everyone of the big Nowhere Nevada show at Jub Jub’s this Friday, August 8. With 12 local bands featured in the movie, and film clips being shown all night long, this is something you don’t want to miss! It’s a fundraiser to help the cast and crew go to San Jose for the red carpet film fest that the movie has been selected to be in. Please come out to support Reno art and culture!
Thanks for Listening!
Reno Pride – you got some?

Welcome once again! We’re happy to welcome back to the studio some of the team who worked on Reno’s own movie Nowhere Nevada. Executive Producer Brian Sutherland and the dandy tuna himself, actor Andy Luna (Overload) stop in to let us know the current status of our favorite movie! Nowhere Nevada has been doing well, already having taken a 2nd place prize for Crime dramas in an Ohio film festival.
We play a bunch of songs from the soundtrack and talk a lot of shit this week, with the conversation ranging about wherever our hearts and minds took us. The quiz with Andy Luna is particularly fun – he came to play and did well! I can’t even begin to tell you what we talked about
, mainly because I forgot to take notes. We touched on a lot, but most importantly, the Nowhere Nevada fundraiser on 8/8 to help the production team get to the big film festival in SF later this month.
I don’t have much for you this week, except to thank Andy Luna and Brian Sutherland for stopping in, and to wish them, Nick and all the rest of the production team who is going down a lot of broken legs.
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.
