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!

It’s been a bit of a stress filled whirlwind around the Dogwater Studios! Stupid Holidays, stupid thinking of OTHERS, stupid fun. Nick and his lovely Mikie had a wedding shower over the weekend, Rick and Nick had birthdays and it’s the countdown to fun family and alcohol! We had some technical difficulties that resulted in a failure to communicate on the part of Rick and Rory’s email services, but that’s all cleared up.
Much apologies for the delay in the episode to our fantastic guests, Busking By Moonlite:
Busking by Moonlite is Mason Frey, Nico Telles, Kenny Shepherd and Christian McNamara who being their own spin to the rock/blues game – Reno style, If you have’t caught them , they are a recent development in the overall music map of the Reno entertainment game. Although they look young, these men all have the souls of old men who sold their soul at a crossroads for a little talent. Rev. Rory is out this week so Nick and Chewie take the helm.
Despite the delay in the show, you should listen to it as soon as possible. Busking by Moonlite is stinkin’ talented. Hurry before these musicians grow too big for Reno and take their talent elsewhere. Who are we kidding – they’re trapped here like everyone else.
Speaking of being trapped here, we will have and EXTRA SPECIAL BONUS EPISODE for you later this week. That’s right, the ever popular Christmas Spectacular! Stay Tuned on Christmas Eve for more! In the meantime, enjoy Busking By Moonlite!
Thanks for listening.
What time is it? It’s early!

Heya heya heya! It’w a wonderful day on the internet! We have a freaking GREAT episode for you this week. Not only do we have the talents of the superb, Mason Frey, Reno singer and musician, but we also are sporting The Return of Zomboo!!! That’s right, Reno’s favorite latenight horror movie show host is back with us in studio!
Zomboo’s House of Horror is still going, but has hit a bit of a snag. The show has been bumped from 11pm PST on Fridays to 2am PST on Saturdays! Booooo! He needs closed captioning to be ADA compliant with the FCC. Closed Captioning is really freaking expensive – more expensive than the movies! So, Zomboo and his team of ghouls are putting together a fundraising plan to get the ball rolling and get omboo back on before the witching hour! Listen to the great behind-the-scenes interview in the middle of the show. Stay tuned to the website or facebook page to keep abreast of the details – and buy stuff.
Our other guest is Mason Frey. Fuck that kid. Fuck him and all the stinking talent and charm and personability that fit into that tuzxedo. Mason sings like an angel and plays guitar like a deal with the devil. He treats us to a few originals and a sweet cover of Graham Parson’s “She”. We happened to catch him in a tux because he’s just that kind of James Bond cool. Lots of fun to talk to, Mason has a great outlook and take on the Reno music scene.
That’s my time – thanks for listening!
