It’s almost time to check in with weather and sports at the 10s, but up first is your friend and mine: MISTER Max Volume! Stepping away from the radio booth and into the internet thingamabob, Max joins us once again for a lot of laughs, stories and even a few songs. If you are new to the show, the area or just don’t listen to terrestrial radio for the past 40 years, Max Volume is an iconic Reno radio personality who has literally helped move the dial on rock music and concerts in northern Nevada for almost half a century – and we don’t see him quitting anytime soon.
The conversation is really mostly about this one time Max took Johnny and Jesse (of Rigorous Proof) to LA when they were teenagers and evidently met the entire rock and roll hall of fame in person. It was a really wild trip and that’s all we talked about. Well – it was more a touchstone as we caromed off of each other tangent-ed down a conversational hallway. (I’m not entirely sure we ever finished a story). We also get a number of great songs out of Max, old and new – some even off of his new album “MV” Partway through the show, everyone’s favorite shredder, Michelle Belle of The Grimtones drops in and is wrangled into grabbing a mic.
Well – that’s about all I’ve got this week.
