Ryan Stark – Putting the ‘No’ in ‘Reno’ – S13 E17
Hey, friends! Reverend Rory is back this week and is pleased as peaches to welcome to the show one of his and Dogwater Dick’s oldest friends and collaborators, Ryan Stark. A Reno native, Ryan has been involved with the underground and performing arts scenes of Reno for quite some time. He is also the proprietor of No City City Roasters, a wonderful outfit that also has a location in the top of the Great Basin Food Coop – and it’s legit. As long as The Rev has known Ryan, the tall man in black has always has a passionate opinion on coffee.
Stark brings a few original songs that he plays live for us, as well as a track from his band-on-hiatus, DIffidence. We talk about old Reno a bit – the Java Jungle and FSU days, basement shows and late night coffee. Chewie also comes through with a Reno connection on tape – Real Rivals, comprised of Reno emigres living in Seattle and recorded at that F.S.U. location in 2005.
We of course end up with an event round up – including Nick Ramirez and Eric Foreman at the Canvas Café, 11a – 1p on 06/10 in Virginia City and ALSO the RPRFM Clown Car Wash on the same day at Shanty Dolans and the Keystone Car Wash!
