This week we are joined by Robert Derbyshire aka DJ FasterThanYou of KWNK 97.7’s “Left of the Dial,” and actors Jessica Johnson and Claire Hachenberger of “Men On Boats”, currently playing at our beloved Good Luck Macbeth Theatre in midtown Reno,
We had a lovely time discussing “Men on Boats,” its relation to American history, and the unique spin the author wrote into the piece. Claire and Jessica were full of info and funny to boot!
DJ FasterThanYou treats us with selections from his noise and punk selections including a couple Reno legends at the end. Listen to find out who!
Speaking of local legends, Chewie is back with his From the Vault segment, with 3 quick tracks from early nineties teenage punkers Dirty Steve, straight off the cassette recording! We discuss a multitude of Renocentric subjects and the guests give a great performance in their debuts on the worst little quiz.
Another stellar show we hope you enjoy.
Life is short and we love you.
Thanks for listening.
Welcome, Contestants! Thanks for joining us once again. If you haven’t noticed, the COVID crisis has had an effect on the show – namely, they are late and much less verbose. We normally tried to get shows out before the weekend, to help promote the venues and live happenings. As that is much less of a priority these days, we are now going to just be publishing the shows on Mondays. There’s been shifts in all of our lives and it’s really much simpler to publish them on Monday. AND I promise to do my best to have something to say, even if it’s nonsensical, even if I’m feeling run-down and not up to it. (I hope somebody reads these. It’s the closest I’ve got to legitimate writing publication in the last 5 years.) Anywhoo….
Joining us this week is a voice any Renoite knows from infancy: the talented and gregarious Godfather of Reno Rock, Mr. Steve Funk. Steve took some time out of his busy travel schedule to stop in and- just kidding, It’s another Zoom Room show!! We did have a blast talking to Steve about his experiences in radio and music in Reno over the last few decades. The only problem was – not enough time!!! We had to force ourselves to stop talking so we could listen to the songs! (ok- like the pro he is, Steve Funk drove the bus for Rev. Rory and showed him how it’s done, even with a busted Winnebago like this show. Don’t worry, we’ll have him back)
Additionally, Steve brings us a sampling of his own original music over the years, including a little ditty about Reno that you’ll just have to listen to hear more about.
Stay safe. Wear your damn mask. “Don’t trust Whitey.”
Thanks for listening
