    #272 Ron Hawkins of Lowest of the Low and Do Good Assassins

    Ron Hawkins is the principal song writer and lead singer of Lowest of the Low as well as The Do Good Assassins. Ron has been writing and releasing music since the Late 80's and found some great success in the release of "Shakespeare my Butt". And album that has become the soundtrack of many peoples lives. Shakespeare my Butt was the highest sold independent album in Canadian history until the Barenaked Ladies took the record with their self release Yellow Cassette. Both bands were actually on the same label at that time. Strange right? Ron's next release will be "246" which is an album recorded on a Cassette 4 track recorder. Also strange.Anyways, Ron has always been a great guest when he has been on the show. And this one is his forth time being a great guest and supporter of this show. Thanks Ron, Great to see you again!

    #271 Limo aka Brett Hopkins

    Limo and I go back 25+ years. I replaced him as front of house sound with SNFU in mid 1995 because of his commitment with NOFX. Limo was the main stage tech and monitor guy with NOFX for 24 years. He's been around the world several times. Also known as Brett Hopkins, he's now settled down in BC as a full time barber. He also plays drums in a band called Modern Terror. See the link for the interview with Jeff Doran in episode 207. Thanks Limo for the great chat and catch up.
