Shabby Road Update

Hello all! We want to update you on the recent developments at the ol’ Shab.

A.D. is hard at work rebuilding the studio and we hope to have it up and running within the next few weeks. Both A.D. and I have several projects in the works including a string of dates with Louis Prima Jr, lessons and local gigs that have slowed the arduous process down. We had hoped to have a new episode for you this week but our schedules wouldn’t allow it.

Upon our return from the Prima dates next week we will resume the work of making Shabby Road better than ever. There is a little more building to do, but most of the gear is on site. To A.D.’s credit, he is making sure that everything is done right. No cutting corners to save time. The goal is to streamline the facility so the many projects that enter the studio work more in harmony.

We are excited about the much needed makeover that Shabby Road is getting. A new bar, new leather couches (no more Astro Van bench seats), a best of all, NEW CARPET. I no longer need my wife to hose me down RAMBO FIRST BLOOD style after recording a podcast. How many weeks will it take for us to have it trashed again? I give it about….hmm…3 weeks.

One thing that hasn’t changed is we haven’t stopped acquiring some new vinyl to share with you. The mystery boxes are piling up. So, once we get back in business, you can look forward to many more hours of Shabby entertainment.

We would like to express our gratitude to those that have helped out in this rebuild. The cold beers have been greatly needed.

Thank you for your patience. We can’t wait to get back to work. If you are needing a fix, you can listen to ALL EPISODES on this website. Just click away and explore the “Shabby’s of olde”. They still make me laugh.

“Fumigation Sensation” Lifers – Chapter 13

With Shabby overrun with pestilence, we pull a real gem from the vault. First, Ryan describes the horror that festered inside the studio while we were on tour. Then, we unearth a tape of Ryan and AD interviewed on a radio show in 2008 in the band Crash Street Kids. The band performs 3 songs live on air. To round out the show, Ryan grabs his guitar and breaks down the music theory and lyrics of a song performed on the broadcast. Enjoy!
