The Year of COVID has been transformative for a lot of people. This week’s guest, Redfield Clipper, talks a lot about his own transformation into a new style of music, composing an album largely online and grappling with death. It’s a pretty heavy episode…
It’s also a really fun episode! Redfield regales us with stories of creating the music for the album “Death Anxiety” and the many projects he’s been involved with (like “Say Their Names” With Lily Baran). His own musical journey sees him drifting away from the hip-hop beats and more into the jazzy-jam realms of R&B. It’s a lot about growth and transformation, when we get down to it. (Bonus: Rick calls out Sir Paul McCartney’s bad songwriting.)
Thanks for listening! Make a wish!

Our guest this week is Shannon Dobbs, Reno entrepreneur and international agent of change. Shannon has spent a lot of time in Reno, as a community member as well as a business owner, and literally has put his money where his mouth is, betting on a future of change. You may know him as the former proprietor of the Five Star or the founder of On Common Ground, a community food network.
We range unusually far and wide this week: We talk about Shannon’s new digs in Mexico. We take some trips down memory lane, talking about the old Reno, the dark and dirty Reno, the Reno full of optimism and hope. We also talk about a lot of the current harsh realities, from COVID to food insecurity. Shannon also has a book coming out, regarding community organizing to combat food anxieties. Look for Low Hanging Fruit to come out on (or around) 7/11/2021. Featured Music this week from Vague Choir, Karma and Erin Drive.
Thanks For Listening!
We never said we were good at scheduling, which is why we are concluding our Women’s March in April (but it was recorded in March – really!). We are super excited to wrap things up with one of the great friends of the show, and all of us personally, the incredible singer, Margy Ford.
Margy Ford has been a mainstay of the Reno music scene for the better part of the last decade. Her strong singing talents and affable nature have pushed her into the limelight in bands like Candyshoppe, Satellite Serenade, Wheatstone Bridge and, of course, the contemporary Roxxy Collie. Plus, she’s just a blast to talk to .
We check in with her musical progress, as well as her recovery after a bad injury during the pandemic. When will the next Roxxy Collie album come out? You might just have to stay tuned…
