Basement Tapes – Our Seasons Go To 11 – S11 E1
GREETINGS PODCAST FANS! Welcome to Season 11 – we are excited to have you with us, once again. We hope your holiday and new year was merry and bright. It’s a whole new world! Now: back to the music!
We are stoked and honored to welcome Basement Tapes back to the show! Travis, Amy, Deb and Bob all popped into the zoomroom to hang out with us for this first episode of the new era. (Garret was busy with lame things like ‘getting a good night sleep for work’, but we wont hold it against him… yet)
Armed with a handful of new songs, they are ready to release a new album – and you get a sneak peek at the tracks right here. Join us to hear how they have coped with writing and recording amidst a pandemic (fairly well, tbh) and other adventures in music!
On the horizon: Check out Reno Punk Rock Flea Market’s Valentine Slay – an online fundraiser for The Generator – Kadiallac Kim is one of the organizers, once again, and we are excited for what they have in store this year in a re-vamped online event.
Next Week: Asphalt Socialites

But back to Basement Tapes. Basement Tapes describes their music as retro, 60s, raw, high-energy garage rock. Revisiting a time when music had music had soul, with post-modern punk attitude, melodic, grooving bass lines, thunderous rolling drums, powerful crashing guitar riffs and a harmonious couple on vocals. Basement Tapes plays straight-forward simple rock and roll.
Thanks to Greg and Basement Tapes for joining us this week!

Trevor “Trevair” Snowden – Stomie Hole – S7 E19
Hello and Welcome to the Worst little Podcast!
The-Worst-Little-Podcast-2017-06-19– Download Link
We have a full house of hosts tonight including a new face, Kadillac Kim (that’s me, hello). Our guest tonight is award winning disabled athlete, Trevor Snowden. Snowden’s larger than life, hope-filled presence is almost too big for the studio. In 1997, Trevor was preparing for a career in extreme snowboarding when he suffered a catastrophic spinal injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Trevor pulls no punches when talking about how his injury has affected his life. In addition to being an athlete, he is an inventor, video game designer, and rapper. Trevor’s full-length album, The Wheelchair Extraordinaire, is available on iTunes. Listen in for a yet to be released track and Worst Little Podcast exclusive from Trevor and learn about what he has in the works or just where to find him singing karaoke.
Over the years Snowden became increasingly unhappy with the standard wheelchairs insurance provided so he invented his own custom wheelchair specifically designed to provide athletes to stay active. This wheelchair is now known as the Trevair. Trevor’s invention has helped him launch a new off- roading sport, wheelchair supercross. Snowden holds the world record for jumping 55ft over cars in a wheelchair and his stunts have been featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
Thanks to Trevor Snowden for being on the show and for sharing his story!
Holy Snopes, you have to be joking me ass with all this good music here in Remo, Sriracha! This week in Reno you will see your’s truly at Pignic Thursday night for outlaw Americana rockers The Ghost Town Rebellion. That night I’ll also zip over to the Saint to support Redfield Clipper/Bazooka Zac/The Lique for some funk and live hip-hop. Friday I’ll see you at The Saint for the Riptide Bandits homecoming show. Starting at 8 see them with awesome reno bands Basement Tapes and Swigs. Surf punk! Saturday at the Loving Cup is Gatheist and Hate Recorder. Clint from Elephent Rifle says their the best band in America. Do with that info what you will… I’ll see you this weekend, Reno!
As always, thanks for listening and for supporting your local music scene.
Oh, and happy pride.
