The cast of Avenue Q and their puppets

Do you like fun? We hope you like fun! You can spell fun, right? G-E-T-T-I-N-G-H-I-G-H spells fun! In an unprecedented show, we have a number of members of the cast from the Tahoe Players’  production of Avenue Q! Cast members Princeton, Kate Monster, Nicky and a couple of Bad Idea Bears join us for the show. They are an interesting bunch – a little on the creepy side though, and not just because they are puppets. Surprisingly, Nicky gets the lowest score on the quiz that we’ve ever had on the show EVER!

Later in the show, the wonderful puppeteer and acting talent of Sarah Turner (Girl Bad Idea Bear), Tarek Barghouti (Princeton), Melissa Barusch (Kate Monster), Joanna Dunlap (Nicky) and Shawna Hafen (Boy Bad Idea Bear) join us in the studio. They’re a great bunch and we had a lot of fun talking to them on the show and listening to some of their songs, as accompanied by friend of the show, Tristan Selzler, on the ivories.

Welcome aboard Worst Little Airlines. Just sit back, relax and trust your fine pilots for the smoothest podcast you’ve ever heard… Now that you’re finished laughing, please enjoy the in-flight entertainment!

Lily Baran of Hella Fitzgerals and the Tahoe Players

The fabulous, Lily Baran

We bring you Hella Fitzgerald! Songbird Lily Baran and ivory tickler Tristan Selzler throw down a little session at the studio this week. Performing intermittently around town for the last few years, Hella Fitzgerald is a Reno jazz combo that coalesces out of strains of melodies in the air whenever they are needed.

Tristan Selzler of Hella Fitzgerald

The piano man, Tristan Selzler

These fine performers flip Dogwater Dick’s lid – you can nearly hear him peeing his pants after their first song. They throw down a selection of jazz standards and modern transpositions, a little change of pace for us. Once again -WLP bringing you exciting new content every week!

In addition to Hella Fitzgerald, Baran and Selzler are busy folk. Selzler sits in and regularly performs at clubs and bars around Reno with different jazz combos. Baran is a major part of the operations at Tahoe Players, a performing arts facility for young people in Incline Village that regularly entertains audiences around the Reno/Tahoe area.

Also – go visit Reno Computer Fix. Cause I said so.

Thanks for listening!

Lovely Regenie!

Hello friends, it’s that time of the week again! Don’t forget to drink your Ovaltine! (do they even make that anymore?) We have a pretty fun show lined up for you – except for that part when Rev. Rory tries to use a tuner – with lots of exciting things! First, from the Tahoe Players, we have a couple of cast members from their production of les Miserables take the time to visit with us. Micheal Jackson and Regina Powers take the stage in the studio and tell us all about the debut of les Miserables at the Village Green for Red, White, and Tahoe Blue on July 5. Directed by Lily Baran and Musical Director Joe McKessom, the production will also run July 25-29 at John Ascuaga’s Nugget. Tickets are available at the Tahoe Players website. Aside from all that good stuff, Miceal blew us away with just a snippet from the show. It should be a lot of fun!

The REAL Micheal Jackson on our show!!!!

Sadly, Nick announced the demise of Candyshoppe, citing creative differences and an insatiable addiction to Cheetos amongst the various members. Best known for violently assaulting audience members with sugary treats, Candyshoppe will be remembered as a  band of minor note – mostly B minor. Just kidding! We will actually miss them and wish all the Candyshoppers the best in the next chapter of whatever the hell it is that they do. We end up playing a few of their songs this week, in memoriam.

Bryce Albright looking up thoughtfully.

The sweater is too short.

We also devote some portion of the show to talking with Executive Fluffer, Bryce Albright. So far 100% of Bryce’s bands have broken up, usually before releasing any recordings. SO! Seeing as they were Dogwater Studio productions living under a rock, we played a few. and you know what – they were actually pretty good. Toe tapping in fact.
