Todd Ballowe – Eagle in the Henhouse
Welcome back, O Constant Listener! Its always a good time with Todd Ballowe in the studio and we hope you enjoy this episode. We didn’t realize just how ling it has been since he’s been on the show, so there was a lot of catching up to do, on and off mic.
Aside from being a little isolated like everyone else since 2020, Todd has been through some legit travails, battling it all with a smile. Fires, ailments, and being old dads; the show gets a little “old man shouts at cloud” heavy, but bear with us – we are only in the early stages of senility. Todd has also been busy opening Yonder Aerials and Dance in the North Valleys with his lovely partner, Jole .
We also devote a good chunk of the show to talking about Marianarchy XVIII: A Benefit for Andy Hernandez. The event will be over two weekends, Oct 7-8 and 14-15, at Alturas and Elbow Room, respectively. Two weekends featuring 40+ of your favorite local acts, to benefit Andy Hernandez, noted Reno bassist with Los Pistoleros who was involved in a near-fatal motorcycle accident in the Spring of 2022. Andy has since recovered and regained the ability to walk and obviously is saddled with enormous medical bills. Come on out to one of the shows and throw some support. There will be some form of raffle as well.
We are adding a new element to Marianarchy – a Memorial where we can remember the names and faces of those we have lost over the course of the past few years and the past two decades, such as Tom Plunkett and Kahele Dunn, who were not only dear friends to many of us at WLP and also Marianarchy beneficiaries, but also ardent supporters of Marianarchy every year they were able. We invite you to participate in this memorial with us, and add a photo, a name or a memento. It is planned to be a permanent fixture at Marianarchy, going forward, a living testament to our community and those we’ve been lucky enough to spend time with.
Hope to see you at the show – Todd goes up early on Day two at Alturas.
Thanks for Listening.
