Booberamapalloozafest Preview w/ Johnathon Boober
(Johnathon Boober – local scenester and all around very cool gent – drops by our humble program to talk about the incredible event happening next week, and play some music by the bands that will be there.)
I met Johnathon Boober one night at a Karaoke bar (full disclosure: I ran the Karaoke), and we have been friends ever since. His sense of style, musical taste, artistic interests and inclinations, as well as his sharp wit have made him an invaluable friend, and I regularly miss his incredible radio endeavors when he was host of Is This Music? and Hogwash Hodgepodge & Musical Detritus.
However, you don’t have to go very far to see his influence on the music scene. With friends in more bands than you can safely fit on an iPod, Boober has put on some incredible shows over the years, and his annual Booberamapalloozafest is now four years strong, and an excellent example of the amazing bands he’s built relationships with. In this program, not only do we plug the fourth incarnation of this amazing event, but we listen to samples of the bands performing on this incredible bill. Basically, you’ll want to call in sick Friday, clear your calendar for the weekend, and spend the entire time at The Kenton Club, because shows like this are few and far between.
As mentioned in the program, Boober has hosted a number of great bands on the radio, and my predecessor was involved with two amazing ones: RABBITS & Nasalrod. I cannot say enough nice things about either band, and if you would like to relive these broadcasts to get yourself in the mood for March 8th, then I urge you to follow the links provided:
