This week’s guest is none other than Rookie Rochelle from the Ramones-worshipping punk rockers from Long Island, The Young Rochelles. This is a great chat that gets in to some serious Ramones nerdery bigtime and we put forward a poll for the listeners of the LGLRS. Yep, we need to get to the bottom of the most asked question of every Ramones fan that has yet to be answered. This show is a good time and we hear so many rad stories. You’re gonna dig it. Go buy all their records.

Oh wow! This week’s guest is huuuuuge! Yes, my friends, ROSS THE BOSS is on the LGL Rock Show this week talking about heaps of wild stuff and awesome stories. A very honest and genuine interview about growing up in NYC when the first wave of the punk explosion happened. We talk about all of that, his time with The Dictators, about him joining MANOWAR, about his departure from MANOWAR, about joining the French band Shakin’ Street, etc. There’s just so much great stuff in here and I feel that this conversation could have gone on for hours but unfortunately, time is limited. It was conducted backstage at the Croxton Band Room before his show which I have to say was amazing and seeing Ross play those MANOWAR tunes was completely out of this world. I was stoked to do this interview and I hope you enjoy listening to it. Let’s hope we can get him back sometime in the future.

This episode’s guest is guitarist / vocalist Ray Carlisle aka (Ray Bottlerocket) from Wyoming punk rockers, Teenage Bottlerocket. While the band were in Melbourne, Ray and myself sat down to chat about all things punk rock including records, venues, tour stories, recording at the Blasting Room and heaps more! It’s a fun time and it was awesome to see them in Australia again. They have a new album out of punk rock covers which is talked about here and you should probably buy it cos it’s great.

If you’ve been keeping track at home, Donny was in issue 6 of the Long Gone Loser zine and now he is on episode 125 of the podcast 16 years later. Who’d ever have thought?

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.
