iHeartRadio and Ray Harkins

Joe Mulherin from Nothing, Nowhere
The man who invented "emo rap" is on the show today, Joe Mulherin from Nothing, Nowhere! Obviously I am poking fun a bit at the hyperbole there but this chat was spectacular. Joe is a real ass dude that has a lot of experience within the punk/hardcore subculture, is vegan and straight edge which maybe from the surface...you wouldn't pick up on. We had a lively discussion about all of those things and more. Dive in and enjoy this discussion! Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Matt Frazier from Local Natives
I love bringing episodes like this to you all because it came DIRECTLY FROM A LISTENER. Matt Frazier plays drums in the really great indie rock band Local Natives and he grew up in and around the punk/hardcore (specifically in the "Chain Reaction-core" days) scene so we dig deep into that while also discussing his life growing up in the Inland Empire, how close the band is as well as stalking Radiohead (not really, but it's a fun story).

The DUDE is on the podcast this week. By the DUDE I mean Mr. Mike Schliebaum who is the lead shredder in metal stalwarts Darkest Hour, Be Well and Battery. He's an incredibly prolific musician and someone who I call a friend. We talk about his new signature guitar, being an "asshole" and how he finds himself fitting in. What an episode!

A Pacific Northwest hardcore/metal legend, Greg Anderson is on the show this week. He played in Engine Kid, Brotherhood, currently runs Southern Lord Records and also plays in Sunn 0))) and Goatsnake. In short, he's done a ton of rad stuff within independent music, so I asked him all the questions. We covered the inception of the PNW hardcore scene, commercial success and musical isolation.

Brian Fair from Overcast/Shadows Fall
New England Metal and Hardcore staple Brian Fair from Shadows Fall/Overcast is on the show this week! I am VERY excited as I have admired his work for many years and worked alongside of him when he played in Shadows Fall (I worked at Century Media while they were releasing their earlier LP's) but never got to spend time with him. We changed that and discussed a ton of things like his early touring life, his diverse music tastes and of course, his dreadlocks. GO!

Brian Moss from The Ghost/Hanalei
Today we have Brian Moss the band behind Hanalei and the underrated band, The Ghost. I love both of his bands so when the opportunity to have him on the show came up, I jumped at it. Brian and I discuss his experience being a working class band, his occupation as a teacher and how important the outdoors is to his well-being. He just released his latest full length with Hanalei called "Black Snow" and I urge you to check it out. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Mike Hranica from The Devil Wears Prada
Mike Hranica from The Devil Wears Prada joins me on the podcast today. I have always been fascinated by this band from their meteoric rise to capture the attention of the early 2000's metalcore/Christian scenes and moving quickly onto the Warped Tour stages across the country...the band definitely always had something to say. Now, heading into the bands 16th year of existence, they keep pushing their comfort zones and evolving. Mike and I discuss his process of writing a book, detaching his ego from his position in the band and so much more. Enjoy! Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Chris Evenson from Sensefield
Sensefield is an amazing band. They were huge in my early years of understanding that I could indeed listen to music that wasn't just screaming at me. I had the opportunity to bring on Chris Evanson the guitarist of the band on the podcast to discuss their "lost" record on Warner Brothers, his exposure to South Bay punk and the idea of them being a "bridge" band.

Marshall Gallagher from Teenage Wrist
Let's talk about a cool new band okay? I fell in love with Teenage Wrist in 2018 when they dropped their first LP called "Chrome Neon Jesus" on my unsuspecting ears and it's this weird combo of Failure/Hum/Hoobastank (no joking) but simply put it just rocks. They just dropped a new heater called "Earth Is A Black Hole" and I had to have someone in the band on the show. Cue Marshall Gallagher and we dive deep into the bands history, his life on the road with 3OH3! (yes, that one) and growing up in the Denver suburbs. Even if you've never heard the band, you will find something to enjoy in this discussion. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
