Ladies March marches on!
This week we are graced by the presence of the sweet and hilariously fun Lily Baran. This young singer-turned-activist-turned-ACLU employee has quite a story to tell. Having only had Lily as a guest of WLP once, way back in 2014, it was great to catch up with her this week.
Lily is a gifted singer with a soulful, soothing and expressive voice; just gorgeous. She does a couple of Nina Simone songs (that’s how good she is), one of them with updated lyrics by Lily that hit the heart poignantly. She also plays us her collaboration with Redfield Clipper, a Jazzy banger, and of course we play a quick round of the quiz. (Mouse asks the dirtiest question ever so sweetly. Lol.)
Lily is an absolute joy to hangout with. She has some shows coming up and who knows, you just might catch her at a Jazz jam or “doing a thing “ with the also amazing Rachel McElheny. In the meantime she’s out there working to ensure our civil liberties and we appreciate her for it. Thanks Lily!
Kadilac Kim gives us the local lowdown and Ian is back! Yay! We’ve got him for two shows until he heads back to school. We’re so proud of him.
And to you, our listeners, life is short and we love you.
Thanks for listening.
Well, hi, kids!

Do you like fun? We hope you like fun! You can spell fun, right? G-E-T-T-I-N-G-H-I-G-H spells fun! In an unprecedented show, we have a number of members of the cast from the Tahoe Players’ production of Avenue Q! Cast members Princeton, Kate Monster, Nicky and a couple of Bad Idea Bears join us for the show. They are an interesting bunch – a little on the creepy side though, and not just because they are puppets. Surprisingly, Nicky gets the lowest score on the quiz that we’ve ever had on the show EVER!
Later in the show, the wonderful puppeteer and acting talent of Sarah Turner (Girl Bad Idea Bear), Tarek Barghouti (Princeton), Melissa Barusch (Kate Monster), Joanna Dunlap (Nicky) and Shawna Hafen (Boy Bad Idea Bear) join us in the studio. They’re a great bunch and we had a lot of fun talking to them on the show and listening to some of their songs, as accompanied by friend of the show, Tristan Selzler, on the ivories.
Late in the show we take a call from The Vampirates on the road. Chris Fox tells us a finny story form their time in The Sunshine State that you can also read all about here!
Happy Day, campers!
Welcome aboard Worst Little Airlines. Just sit back, relax and trust your fine pilots for the smoothest podcast you’ve ever heard… Now that you’re finished laughing, please enjoy the in-flight entertainment!
We bring you Hella Fitzgerald! Songbird Lily Baran and ivory tickler Tristan Selzler throw down a little session at the studio this week. Performing intermittently around town for the last few years, Hella Fitzgerald is a Reno jazz combo that coalesces out of strains of melodies in the air whenever they are needed.
These fine performers flip Dogwater Dick’s lid – you can nearly hear him peeing his pants after their first song. They throw down a selection of jazz standards and modern transpositions, a little change of pace for us. Once again -WLP bringing you exciting new content every week!
In addition to Hella Fitzgerald, Baran and Selzler are busy folk. Selzler sits in and regularly performs at clubs and bars around Reno with different jazz combos. Baran is a major part of the operations at Tahoe Players, a performing arts facility for young people in Incline Village that regularly entertains audiences around the Reno/Tahoe area.
Also – go visit Reno Computer Fix. Cause I said so.
Thanks for listening!
