episode23 - Elliot Turton

PREMIERES and RAIN! Later Conan talks with Elliot Turton of Waxeater/None of the Above Podcast. The dangers of multiple open mics, running the Howard Stern West Coast feed. The Waxeater Sports Radio appearance/interview, not being spoon fed rock music. Joining Waxeater… cassettes, etc. From Low Frequencies to None of the Above, The background on the None of the Above crew, a regular schedule, hand cues and keeping order in a broadcast/podcast. Beer radio. On dying on a stage on tour, no… literally dying from electrocution. Missing the “27 club”. Baltimore record is a concept record about the Wire and lots more. Jam packed with good music… and a baffling on air tech support call from Conan’s dad.
