Show Notes

Behold! The Witchpolice Radio train continues a-chuggin' down the tracks (and a day ahead of schedule, too!) with our 17th majestic episode, this week featuring a live performance by our guest host, local rap impresario Birdapres. Perhaps you are familiar with some of the multitude of releases Bird (government name Dane Goulet) has appeared on, dating back to the mid-90s (seriously, the man's credits -- per Discogs -- are insane). If you're not, perhaps you should look into that. Immediately.

WR014: Ryan Sanders

While last week's excellent episode -- the most-downloaded Witchpolice Radio show to date -- focused mainly on old-school country, this one, featuring the inimitable Ryan Sanders (Knifeinmyback, the Brat Attack, a bunch of other cool bands), is somewhat... louder. Aside from Jon's opening selection, everything here is fairly heavy n' distorted. It's a really awesome playlist, coupled with one of the better discussions we've had on the show. Give it a listen. You'll learn a lot about coffee, ill-advised drug rampages, and how Ryan is just a regular criminal, not a hate criminal as one might interpret from one of his early remarks. Oh yeah, and the theme this week is "Fuel." In keeping with our live guest performances, Ryan did a brief spoken-word piece at the end of the show: ...
