Va Va Voom, LIVE! (Live Friday 069)

When you’re walking down the street and you hear a sound that makes you stop and do a double take, you know you’re listening to VaVa Voom. This sexy sextet of PDX rock stars blend rock and pop to create a wonderful sound that’s been turning plenty of heads at clubs and house shows, telling stories of sex, drugs, booze, and the end of civilization as we know it. Their songwriting is top notch, and their stage show makes you want to shake it ’til they let you join the band. Until then, you’ll have to catch them here, tonight, on Live Friday.

Let’s Rollplay: Scraetch Grillson Part II (KPSU Phase I Episode 095)

Scraetch joins me again for an hour full of +1 Action! Since the fans demanded it, I let her come in again and do all the hard work while I sat there reading up on some of the new beasties included in the Monster Manual. This episode is all about rolling the 12 sided dice, and to help accomodate that we bust out the hits new and old, guarenteed to cause you to level up before the end of the hour. Highlights include a heroic journey on Timeship Earth, another great (but slightly unplayable) track by my new favorite band Cold Pizza, the irrepressible (and amazingly awesome) Roches, and everyone’s favorite Television song. This adventure’s going to be novelized and published by Tor by the end of the year, but until then you can download it here, today, right NOW!

Scraetch Grillson (KPSU Phase I Episode 094)

New trainee and good friend Scraetch Grillson came down to the station to run a full hour of my show, where she picked the hits and I made slightly strange comments about her being my Helper Monkey. Obligatory “bands that we’re friends with” made the cut for this show, peppered with all the usual stuff that we listen to while drinking. Plus: this show comes with instructions! Tune in, won’t you?
