The podcast is back! After WAY too long of a hiatus we've got a new episode ready for the world with more to come! In this installment, Tony and Nolan review Turn It Around: The Story Of East Bay Punk at The Crest Theater, while eating pizza...literally WHILE eating pizza. If it sounds like we're talking with food in our mouths, it's because we are. (Kids, don't walk with food in your mouths, it's rude.)
Episode 6 of the Listening Game Podcast is up! In this episode we talk with Jeff Machado -- one half of The Shawn and Jeff Show, a long time favorite morning radio program from KWOD 106.5 and then later The Zone 100.5. Jeff and I chatted about how he got his start in radio, what KWOD was like during its heyday, and him marrying a groupie of the show...seriously! He and I both have strange stories revolving around the infamous INXS / Material Issue show at Arco Arena. Jeff now does voice-over work for a variety of entities, is a big believer in reinventing one's self, and making leaps towards doing what we love and being happier in life...boring corporate jobs, be damned!
Last week I went down to The Rock Bar in San Jose and interviewed The Jean Genies, a David Bowie tribute band. Everyone in the band was super nice and very generous with their time. Adding to the fun was learning that we both knew some of the same people -- even 100 miles away from Sacramento there were mutual friends involved. Bowie's magic continues. :)
Nolan and Tony discuss their top 5 non-traditional Christmas songs, "Filmage: The Story of Descendents / ALL", obsessing over mix CDs and iTunes playlists, and other tomfoolery.
Nolan and Maurice recap Record Store Day highlights. Maurice builds a killer stereo system and compares a few A/D converters for ripping vinyl. More info about 24 bit vs 32 bit and other math-resolution-recording craziness than you probably care about! Unless you're ripping vinyl down to digital in which case this is right up your alley. Maybe.
Nolan and Tony finish the 30 Day Song Challenge (songs 16 thru 30).
