Musically Challenged - Band Interview 1 - 20 Watt Tombstone

April 18, 2018 @ 11:05 pm

I know things look a little off, but, that's because on April 6, 2018 Lou and Chad broke out of the norm and actually sat down with a couple cool guys that are part of a band. That band is 20 Watt Tombstone and the members Tom and Mitch really know how to play some dirty blues. Unlike most of our shows there is no music here, just us sitting down and talkig to the guys. Our cover picture has changed, much as possible as we talk to bands we will use a picture of the band, you see us enough. We talk life on the road, great shows and those shows that aren't necessarily that great. We ask them questions about a lot of things. We definately enjoyed talking with them and we hope they enjoyed talking to us. Grab a seat andbuckle in for our first live band interview with 20 Watt Tombstone.

Musically Challenged - Episode 62 - Chad’s Birthday

April 5, 2018 @ 12:52 am

Chad has leveled. That's right, gamers don't age they level. If that's the case Chad is leveled higher than most Gods in Dungeons and Dragons. With that kind of power comes a certain amount of freedom. That's right, Chad picked all 14songs this week. Then he forced Lou to do allthe research so he didn't have to. Then after all that he just talked about what each song means to him. Oh, yeah, also buckle up it's a big one. This hour and forty minute epic episode is worth it if Chad does say so himself.
