Guitars and violins and mandolins, oh my! Once again, we are happy to welcome the folk-tastic troupe known as Wheatstone Bridge to the studios. This time we get some familiar and new faces – Jill Marlene, Zeke Griffin, Gabe Hilton, Steve Barron, Natalie Laster Jones and Amy Willoughby all join us for a wildly tangential show. You know, the “yoozh.”

Although a music-heavy show, we do find time to delve into the Wheatstone DNA and overlapping connections of this folk music juggernaut. We get to know the new-to-the-show additions to the lineup and get to hear some wonderful harmonies about addiction, mothers, D&D and whiskey! (Whiskey makes a gust appearance for most of the show.)

We also get a chance to dial back the time machine and hear the origins of Natalie and Dogwater Dick’s life-long friendship sometime in the 1750’s, on a mud farm. Eventually, the conversation gets weird and we start talking about male prostitution… as we do.

The Worst Little Podcast – S4 E 23 – Download Link!

Holy crap, it’s hot as fuck in Reno, despite the fairly unprecedented 4 days of serious rain in a row. Hope you all are keepin’ cool and pulling a Saturday Night Fever! Whoo! In Studio this week, we have Bill McKean and Zeke Griffin from Strange on the Range, a Reno blues/Americana/Blurgrass BLUEgrass band. No. Hell with It – They are Blurgrass. Made that shit up just now I did. Bill plays guitar and Zeke plays Mandilins. Actually, he freaking makes the suckers. Custom and cool and – damn!

Strange on the Range is a featured act at The Morris Burner Hotel’s Reno Folk Festival, happening this weekend as a part of Artown. If you haven’t been to a show at the Morris yet, you are missing out on a whole lot of what’s happening in the Reno art and performance worlds. Three days of folk music, a trip backwards in time, covering current era, the 60s, and traditional roots of folk music, as a tribute to Pete Seeger, who died earlier this year.

Jill Marlene, event organizer, also joins us partway through the episode and joins the guys on a couple songs. It’s , once again, a fun episode, but it got hot in the studio. It’s hot now. I’m done.

Thanks for listening.
