This episode I’m joined by Corbett Redford, director & writer of the Green Day funded documentary film Turn it Around: The Story of East Bay Punk. We talk about 924 Gilman, being a first time director and about being a punk in the East bay area.

There’s some music too, all related to the film. Make sure to listen to the end for a song by supergroup The Armstrongs that you can buy on iTunes with proceeds going to 924 Gilman.

Start the Music! 007 – Chris Cote

This episode we’re going to bring some Southern California to your ears as I interview singer & bassist Chris Cote of the band Kut-U-Up on his way to grab some waves. Fun fact: This is the first interview I have ever done with someone in a wetsuit. We talk about the Pop Disaster Tour, quickly approaching the 15th anniversary of its last show (June 17, 2002) and the exploits of a band nobody knew accompanying two of the biggest pop punk bands of the time on tour (Blink 182 & Green Day). All that AND music from Chin Up, Kid & Sharp/Shock!

Music played on the podcast from their 2 song EP
