Yesterday one of the coolest things happened on the STP-CAST. We got to interview a man that I have always looked up to and inspired me to want to do radio…Marco Collins. I don’t think Marco needs any introduction, the guy helped shape Alternative Rock music. Thanks to his ear, he broke bands like Nirvana, Radiohead, Weezer, Beck, and the list goes on and on. I was lucky enough to work with Marco for about a year at 107.7 The End, and this podcast was 2 hours of crazy stories being shared. Marco is one of the most interesting dudes you will meet!
Listen to the interview on iTUNES, Stitcher (just search for STP-CAST and subscribe please), or right here:
Huge thanks to Marco for the kind words he posted on his Facebook…
Marco was in to chat about an awesome Christmas show he is doing this weekend in ballard. He has 2 nights planned, but the first night is sold out! I guess there are only 20 or so tickets available for the Saturday show, so hurry up and get tix…scheduled to appear and play acoustic songs are: HOLLIS WONG-WEAR, Katie Kate, Wanz, Hobosexual, Adra Boo (Fly Moon Royalty), Radio Raheem, plus there is a surprise guest that will perform that Marco told us off the air…sadly I can’t tell you, but if you are a fan of 90’s alt rock…this is a HUGE surprise. You can get tickets here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/532537
We also chatted about a documentary about Marco that is being made called The Glamour And The Squalor… check out the trailer, this is going to be a must see for me!
Last night I went to the Seattle T-Birds game…man the Birds looked great last night! Plus it was 2 For Tuesday (2 for 1 tix, 2 dollar beers, 2 dollar Hot Dogs, etc), which always rules! The Birds won 5-2…I tweeted about it, and I love that their rivals…the Everett Silvertips wound up tweeting me…too awesome!

So this morning I-5 North was closed in the morning by I-90, so I had to get off before that and take the streets…I was stuck at a light and saw this…
We are doing the Best That We Could Do For 2013 this morning…playing back some of the better moments of the year as voted by the Rock-A-Holics…this morning we played a moment that all of us agreed was one of the coolest moments ever. What moment was that? Here…watch…
To be a few feet away from Kevin martin as he sang “Far Behind” was a moment I will never forget. It was one of those goose bump moments! Apparently we weren’t alone as these texts came in this morning about it…
Guys That was amazing! All choked uo hearing that song this morning. Thank You! Kristen
This is the 1st time im hearing this acoustic version of Far Behind. Its giving me chills so bad right now! Great way to start the work day! Long live Andrew Wood!
That was amazing, I'm crying, RIP Lindsay
I would have left anyone kick me in nuts as hard as they can, just to have sat in on that performance.
It’s funny…last night I was going through some old stuff, and came across something that brought be back to being a teen…. Back in the day, before the internet, Pearl Jam used to mail stuff to their fan club, The Ten Club. I came across a ton of old letters I got from them that were post marked in 1992! I scanned one of the letters…it’s a trip to read this…as they talk about the Sonics in the finals, etc. I still pinch myself when I have moments where I am b.s’ing with Mike McCready or dealing with the Pearl jam camp in general…that band has had such an important impact on my life since I was a teen…and to be able to work with them from time to time is beyond cool.
