We never said we were good at scheduling, which is why we are concluding our Women’s March in April (but it was recorded in March – really!). We are super excited to wrap things up with one of the great friends of the show, and all of us personally, the incredible singer, Margy Ford.
Margy Ford has been a mainstay of the Reno music scene for the better part of the last decade. Her strong singing talents and affable nature have pushed her into the limelight in bands like Candyshoppe, Satellite Serenade, Wheatstone Bridge and, of course, the contemporary Roxxy Collie. Plus, she’s just a blast to talk to .
We check in with her musical progress, as well as her recovery after a bad injury during the pandemic. When will the next Roxxy Collie album come out? You might just have to stay tuned…

What a show we have for you! It’s chaotic, incoherent at times and was a real blast to record. Hope you can keep up! In the studio we have Jill Marlene, Doyle Wayne Stewart, Margy Ford and Stephen Barron from Wheatstone Bridge, a Reno NV Americana/folk band. No drums, no bass, just a couple of guitars and some singing. Radical concept in these days.
Wheatstone Bridge has been around for a couple years now, and the seasoning has paid off. These four strong talents blend seamlessly, playing new originals and old favorites for us on the show this week. Ford and Marlene are excellent co-singers on all the songs, mirroring and harmonizing with each other with casual grace, while Stewart and Barron do something similar on their guitars.
There’s a lot of chaos in this show but a lot of fun – one of my favorite Quizzes ever is buried in there. We can’t stay on topic for more than a moment and people are stepping all over one another, but that’s what it’s like hanging out with Wheatstone Bridge – a big laughing, feel-y ball of awesome, peppered with music.
It’s the busy season in Reno right now, with all the big end-of-summer festivals, but whether you’re heading out to Sparks for the cook-off, or the Playa for Burning Man, don’t be stupid. Be safe, don’t get caught and have all the fun.
Thanks for Listening!.
