    Little Radio - Summer Block Party

    Little Radio - Summer Block Party

    So I'm back, sorry for the super long break. My editing chops feel a bit rusty, but I hope you don't notice. Dave Conway owns and operates "LittleRadio.com" it started out as a small pirate radio station and has now grown into a major multimedia enterprise. During the summer, Dave opens up his studio to the public and hosts summer block parties and free concerts. On this Sunday afternoon, "Hello Astronaut, Goodbye Television" and "Future Pigeon" performed. What a perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. Watch the video here! [1:38 / 9.5MB QT] Thanks to Brandy Flowers & Mike C. of "Hit & Run" and Dave Conway.

    David Flores - Artist

    David Flores - Artist

    I know I said no more of the vinyl figures, but since I shot this last week and I left the video posting for this week on my hard drive at work, I had no choice. David Flores is probably best known for his skateboarding designs but has most recently lent his iconic style to the world of "Dunnies." Some love him, some hate him, some call him "Sam." You decide. Check out the video here! [1:54 / 11.5 MB QT]
