Episode 73: Valient Himself

Valient HimselfThis is my conversation with Valient Himself of Valient Thorr, one of my favorite bands to see live. Valient Thorr blew me away a few years ago when I was living in Minnesota and I found it very synchronous to return to RVA and find Valient Himself lurking around here driving a cab for Napoleon. He’s also got a newer band called Brief Lives who are playing with RPG at Hardywood August 1st. so check that out.  He generously gave me an hour between a shitload of other engagements, so we could talk about Norman Lear and Comic Books, dig it.


Episode 72: Sean McClain

Sean M

Sean McClain has been around here for decades doing his thing from Chrome Daddy Disco to Bandito’s, to Chrome Daddy Disco at Bandito’s. He’s a guy I never took the time to talk to partly because he’s a guy and I’m not in to guys (shh) and partly because he’s a mod and I was something else. But after a nice afternoon of bro-ing down on being men of a certain age, who like women of a certain age, I realized I’ve been missing out on a helluva guy who has done more than his fair share to contribute to the life and lives of this town. I’m sure you’ll feel the same.


Episode 71: Ellie Quinn

Ellie and Co

This is my chat with Ellie Quinn burlesque performer, writer, producer and champion. We had a great time digging into the many facets of an Ellie Quinn production and I always welcome the chance to make boobies highbrow. Enjoy. There is something wrong with the sound but you won’t notice it after a while, I hope. That’s what I get for trying to upgrade.
