burning man survival guide
I know I say it all the time, but we REALLY DO have a big show for you this week – burners and Elvis and music, oh my!
The show opens with some recordings from the Playaphone circa 1998. After the open, we take a moment to remember the awesomeness that is Elvis Aaron Presley. 34 years ago he became truly legendary, dying on the toilet with such a darkened complexion that the paramedics arriving on the scene thought he was ‘a black male’. We came for the music and stayed for the excess. Thanks, Elvis.
Our first guest is always awesome Kate Cotter. Kate has been one of the most hardworking and well-recieved singer/songwriters in Reno, mesmerising audiencies for more than a decade. We talk with her about her recent recordings, performances and upcoming events.
Then, on to Burning Man!!! The Dogwater Studios
gets invaded by dirty hippies and artfags has the delight of hosting Jess Blaze, Mallory Mishler and a couple of other Burning Man specialists. It’s come to our attention that some people going to Burning Man may be interested in doing illegal drugs. Guess what people. It’s still part of America and all those drugs are still illegal. Doesn’t matter if you’re off in the desert. Rebecca Gasca of the Nevada ACLU has some great advice on how not to get busted in the first place, what to do if you are and how to deal with law enforcement on the playa. (Hint: it starts with ‘p’ and rhymes with ‘oliteness’.)
Burning Man ‘expert’ Dr. Cornelius Cumcough stops by with some really horrible advice about Burning Man. (He probably thinks there is still a bridge connecting the twin peaks of Mt. Kilomanjaro.) And FINALLY, the Digidelic Cowboy busts out on his digereedoo, inspiring an impromptu jam session with Nick Ramirez on the beatbox! Oh, and everyone gets the quiz, plus a suprise phone call from Cheyenne.
Thanks for Listening.
