Tennco Presents: Four Dollar Show – Episode 6 : Sitting through it
It’s one of those shows where you really, desperately want to get out of the house and there’s a band playing you want to see but wait a minute… I have to sit through who? Ugh. Yes, indeed more times than not you have to sit through something terrible to get to something good. This episode represents that show. Thrill to Flash Kahan, snooze during Viv Akauldren (who are also asleep… while playing their set) and then finally the band you’ve been waiting for…are you still here?

Tennco Presents: Four Dollar Show – Episode 5 : When Punk Goes Wrong
Things aren’t always swell in “the scene” …if they had been then there probably wouldn’t be a “scene” or anyone to inhabit it. When you went to a show you always hoped it would be tons of fun, a place to relax and forget about the world or a place where you could scream about how fucked up the world was. Life was always waiting right around the corner… sometimes it was a cute person to make-out with sometimes it was a punch in the face. The only way you could find out what was really going to happen at a show was to be there. Welcome to it.

Tennco Presents: Four Dollar Show – Episode 4 : Winter Wake Up!
It was always cool when you got to see local bands playing with an out-of-towner. Thankfully I awoke from a winter slumber to put this episode together. Listen to some post-nap rambling about girls, gangs and how Adrenalin O.D. just might have influenced the future life of our show’s host. This episode is all about rockin-fucking-out, so prepare yourself.

Tennco Presents: Four Dollar Show – Episode 3 : Plasma Babies Without A Face
Punk somehow changed over the years, as all things will, but whether it was Metallica playing Misfits songs or Brian Bosworth sporting a mohawk; the speedy, radio-unfriendly and angst-filled punk which created many awesome bands was soon replaced by dudes with abs who loved sports and now wanted to be in a hardcore band because it gave them the ability to freely beat-up the weirdos they had been beating up anyway. In this episode of Four Dollar Show we go back to a time when punk was fun, smart and fast without the fights and morons.

Tennco Presents: Four Dollar Show – Episode 2: Canuck Attack
With Detroit being just outside of Windsor, there were a lot of Canadian bands who came to play and goof around. In this episode we revisit some of those crazy canucks and some of the brain damaging experiences that occurred during…and on the way home from some of those insane shows. Fast, insane and smart all from right across the border. By the way if your mom comes to pick you up from a show think twice about your actions and what parental crackdowns might follow.

Tennco Presents: Four Dollar Show – Episode 1: West Coast Explosion
The premiere episode of the Four Dollar Show podcast. As is usual there are some kinks and bugs to be worked out but nonetheless the most important thing is to get the first episode out of the way so that more ridiculousness can begin. In this episode we end up at a show featuring some bands from the West Coast and discover the folkloric story of the nickname “Trout”. Crank up your speakers and enjoy 30 minutes of nonsense.

Tennco Presents: Top Tenneys – Episode 2: Parents or Popsicles
After many attempts to record a new episode, over the last three days, there is finally success! John tries to talk about what people think about but his parents can’t stop talking about overgrown toenails, hillbilly neighbors and secret Slurpees. The sigh of angst right before the episode begins is telling to John’s mindset and emotional status. John’s parents have been married for almost 50 years and boy does it sound like it! Also some surveys and polls and Top Ten Lists? Ugh.
