This week we had a studio full of gingers and boy did things get spicy. Our guest is the one and only John White, joined by our favorite red headed, cookie baking, trivia hosting comedian, Aubrey Forston! Hide your kids, take out your grandmas hearing aids, and press play to hear us reminisce about the excellent weekend that was Marianarchy, snowy pubes, and road head music.
John White has been making records since 2005. He currently has NINE full length albums recorded on his record label Here Here Records. For a dude who’s only 31 years old, that’s quite the feat. Catch John next at The Saint with Johnny Bailey December 30th!
Also joining us this week is the lovely Aubrey Forston, a name you should remember. Aubrey has been performing comedy since coming to Reno. She is also the host of three weekly trivia nights: Tuesday Trivia at Jub Jub’s; Wednesday Trivia at Beck’s Brewhouse; and Sunday Trivia at Shea’s! Aubrey brings the comedy and the cookies, you bring your smarts and wits to win bar tabs!
Thanks to both of our guests for spending their Monday nights with us. I hope we see you around Reno soon!

Well shut the front door!
It’s a fantastic podcast straight out of the Dogwater Studios – sans The Reverend! The Fellow Knees breeze through the studio before they leave Reno on a “tour”, couch surfing across the Pacific Northwest in their bid for world domination. The Fellow Knees are Lex White and Zach Ostgaard, a home-free folk/Americana/bluegrass duo. While they might seem a train-wreck, these boys sure have the goods.
The Fellow Knees willed themselves into existence sometime in the very recent past, evolving out of the Reno underbelly of open mics and riverside jam-sessions. Their quest is murky; their purpose, unclear; but they are golden hearted and undaunted. And really – some fine fine musicianship right here, both with the instruments and the voices. This episode is a real treat.
Also, in the studio, we have WLP’s own Rick “Mr. Baker” Baker. Mr. Baker was a contestent/featured artist at the first annual Reno Chalk Art Festival. He made pretty things and hurt his body for art. Listen to the full story on the show!
Anyway, catch you in three weeks with Sit Kitty Sit!
Thanks for Listening!
