So this week’s radio show I had in studio, AGAINST THE GRAIN from the Motor City of Detroit MI. These guys are straight up Motor City Rock and Roll just like their peers of the past (MC5, The Stooges, Bob Seger, Ted Nugent). I kept bringing up the questions of living in Detroit and they really love their hometown. If you live in a city that is half empty, the cops rarely care about crime, very low income, but the nightlife and the music scene thrives like no other, that is a good reason for staying and helping it move forward. Keeping the music scene alive and use your environment to express that in your music, no bullshit could take that away. I’ve only been to Detroit once, but I felt the energy of all the hard working people in Hockey Town and now I can see how it all paid off with RNR . You can't stop Detroit, but please somebody, save Madonna’s childhood house. We need it! HA!

On next week's radio show, Mr. Dale Crover of the Melvins will be calling in. We'll be talking about the new album (which drops next Tuesday), their upcoming US tour and the two new members of the band, Paul Leary & JD Pinkus of the Butthole Surfers. Since I'm from San Antonio, it's also where Paul & Gibby met to start the Butthole Surfers and it's been sort of my dream to see a collaboration between two of my favorite bands that rarely played together throughout the years (up until a few years ago). Also in studio and joining Dale & I will be Bob Hannam. Bob is co-director of the official MELVINS documentary that will be coming out in 2015. He will explain how & why he got into it, where the film is at right now and all the fun it is gathering all the history of a band that started 31 years ago. He'll have a few good stories for us. I swear. This will be a a huge event for any MELVINS fan.

Thanks everybody for your support and remember to download or stream my podcast down below if you missed my show. Have a great weekend and be cool. CHEERS! ~ Naked Rob, SFC
