Conversations between Dave Larson (Excursion Records, THE EDGE OF QUARREL) and old friends from Seattle and the Pacific Northwest who played roles in the development of the local Punk, Hardcore, and Straight Edge scenes from the 1980s forward. Many of these people have gone on to do some amazing things and, famous or not, they all have interesting stories to tell.

034.5: Aram Arslanian Check In
Aram drops in to catch us up on what he’s been doing in the years since his last appearance. We start off with a conversation about the importance of simple, foundational HC lyrics and move on to cover Aram’s new band, new business, and new addition to his family. Miss Michaelanne, who sat in for all three hours of Aram’s original episode, was on another continent while we recorded this one, but we still found a way to include her through the magic of modern technology.
034: Remembering Ron Guardipee
In honor of our friend, who left us too soon.
It’s not often these boys are all in the same place, so when you get the call they want to do a full-band version of the podcast, you’ve got to roll with it despite the limitations of your recording equipment.
032: Bob Swift
Bob Swift is not a morning drive-time radio host and neither is Dave Larson, but don’t tell them that. Returning to the scene of the rent-theft extracted by Larson’s significant other, Swift finally answers the question on everyone’s mind: “When was the first time you danced with glow sticks?”
031: Sean O’Leary
Dave sits down with Canadian expat Sean O’Leary at an undisclosed location in his prior homeland to discus details of their shared past. Bill Baker joins in the conversation and adds morning zoo radio effects on demand. Or at least he was supposed to. Sean recounts events from his life and sheds light on a series of questions provided by a mysterious intern. Some things become less clear than before, like does Sean really think that 1960’s “rock and roll band with horns” CHICAGO was the PUSSY RIOT of that era? In the end, some great times are had and even greater tales told.
Customer ReviewsSee All
These podcasts are incredible to listen to. It's awesome to hear how the northwest hardcore/punk scene grew from the late 80's and earlier 90's. Listening to stories of how people found their way into the hardcore scene is really cool. Hope Dave has more coming out!
Can't Stop Listening
The Seattle music scene of the 90's was a pivotal role in my life. I love listening to interviews and stories of musicians that I enjoyed and continue to listen to till this day. The Kevin Seconds interview is amazing, this guy has captivating stories and stands as one of my favorite episodes
