Welcome to funkychickentown!
We are so happy to have this week’s guests in studio with us. PUSHBoX invades the studio this week and rocks our socks off with some tunes, old and new! PUSHBoX is a rock band from Reno, NV, comprised of Georgia Maestro, Michael Grover and Patrick Williams, all long time Reno musicians and artists. While many listeners may remember them from the early 2000’s, PUSHBoX is a relevant musical force once more. Having reformed a few months ago, the are taking Reno by storm.
After taking a 7 year hiatus, PUSHBoX is back out there playing shows again and attracting a whole new generation of listeners. The accolades are well deserved as their sound and technique has matured, if not their personalities. (A bunch of 6th graders, they are.)
You’ll be able to catch PUSHBoX soon. They are playing at The Saint with the Asphalt Socialites on Halloween weekend – 10/28/16. So mark that on your calendar and be there, jerky!
Thanks for Listening!
Dedicated, with love, light and joy, to the unconquerable spirit that is Judith “Lady” Hull.

It’s always great to have good friends in the studio! This week is chock full of old friends and good times. First, however, we take a moment to talk about our good friend and icon of the Reno theater community: Lady. Judith “Lady” Hull has been a huge influence on the Reno theater and art community over the past few decades. Despite a strong spirit and support team, she had been in failing health for most of this year and as she enters her next evolution, we send with her our love and affection. She passed over her rainbow bridge on the evening of October 14, 2015. We love you, Lady.
But, as a Reno theater guru, Lady would understand that the show must go on, which is why it is my incredible joy to welcome back onto the show, Season One guest, Georgia Maestro. Many long-time Reno music aficionados will remember Georgia from her solo work as well as her well-received band, Pushbox. When last we spoke to her, Georgia was heading out to cut the world’s teeth on her; now she’s back with new stories, experiences and songs. Her powerful, sultry voice is better than ever. It was really really good for my soul to hear her sing again. We all look forward to seeing more of Georgia in the coming months.
Also joining us in studio is Chef Mike Gully. Mike is both the chef at Cafe DeLuxe on Wells Avenue and also an organizer for the Washoe County supporters of Bernie Sanders. Mike is also bucking for an on air job and does a great job of taking over all of the Rev’s segues. A man with the gift of gab, Gully is entertaining as he doles forth his opinions on the current Reno food scene and the state of politics currently. This episode definitely has some zigs and zags, from food to politics and more.
There’s lots of events this weekend – we recap them at the end – too many to list now, but rest assured that your hosts are involved with many of them.
THanks for listening!
