This week’s guest is none other than Kamala Parks! Fans of the Berkeley punk scene would no doubt be familiar with her work. Not only was she the drummer for bands like Kamala And The Karnivores, Cringer, Naked Aggression, The Gr’ups, etc. but she was also one of the key people in starting The Gilman Street Project; the iconic punk rock DIY venue that gave such bands as Green Day and The Offspring a place to play before they were launched into the mainstream in 1994. This inspiring interview has Kamala opening up about her involvement in the Berkeley punk scene from booking shows in her hometown to touring Europe – all before she was 20 years old. She tells of working with the likes of Green Day and The Offspring as well as the story behind the Screeching Weasel song, Kamala’s Too Nice. This interview is really something special. If this doesn’t make you want to get up and start making things happen, I don’t know what will. We all need a Kamala in our lives to show us that anything is possible.

Wow! Never in my life did I ever think I would be chatting with one of the greatest music engineers and producers of all time but alas, the stars aligned and it happened. My guest this week is none other than Ed Stasium, the legendary producer and engineer of many Ramones albums and cuts. This revealing interview tells all about how he fell into the career of an audio engineer and producer, working extensively with the Ramones, who played what, and he clears up some rumours and urban legends surrounding the recording of the Phil Spector produced End Of The Century album. We also talk about the final Joey Ramone solo album, …Ya Know?, and how that was put together, and so much more. Any fan of the Ramones is going to love this and you can hear it right now by clicking on THIS LINK.

All songs by the Ramones and a couple bonus cuts included from Stiv Bators and Soul Aslyum.
