SacTown Talks by The Nooner

Happy Saturday! The hamsters were on speed yesterday and the What a Week podcast we recorded yesterday is already up, with the links above for both audio and, if you can tolerate my face, video. I thought we started yesterday's recording with very little to talk about but one hour and 12 minutes goes by quickly, or we just talk too damn much.

I often listen to podcasts in bed and let the most recent ones run through the night. So, at about 3am, I woke up to Gibran and me talking about Duncan Hunter. Um, that.

For those who don't follow me on Twitter, I ran across this last night. "The Poorman" from KROQ writes for OC Weekly about the circumstances of his departure from the SoCal alt-rock station. It's labeled "Part 1" and is clearly to be continued, but it's a great time to start listening.

As an OC teen, I listened to LoveLine regularly. My introduction to grunge was with Nirvana and Pearl Jam while in the hospital in those years. I graduated from shared rooms to one of my own, and the "ghetto blaster" loved KROQ. While we were all obsessed with getting out of the hospital, we anticipated 10pm on Sunday nights, when the music of adolescent chatter filled our ears.

Anyway, I know many of you are from The OC and remember those years. By the way, is "ghetto blaster" a phrase that has been replaced by the iPhone? It was a beauty silver-colored package and fit well on the hospital bed-chair which was a star for my friends with CF.
