listen to steve on radio kaos

Hi folks,
The tour is going like gangbusters or something like that. We are having a blast and driving gazillions of miles to play for the people. George is working his arse off and doing the job of 10 grown men. Stinky is playing the box and singing like a champ. Kudos to John Castro for flying out to the bay area for the last 4 shows. Now we are down to 3 little Indians.

The live show recordings are going better than expected. We've connected with our target market and the units are flying off the shelves. The first 4 shows are completely different animals. Weird stuff happened at all 4 shows. If you would like to get copies of the shows they will be available. Write to [email protected]
Each one has its own personalized signature and stupid drawing on it. They are all double cds except for the Russian River Brewing Co. show because I wouldn't shut up so it is 3 cds.

I will be on the radio tonight April 5th, and you can listen on this thing called the internet.
i'lll number about 15 of my songs and they will be chosen at random by the person who calls in to the radio station. Ask a question about your life and then pick a number and whatever song corresponds to that number gets played. Then we discuss it together. That's why there is an 8 ball silly!

Thanks for coming out to the shows, see ya in Olympia tonight .


Here is the info they sent to me about the details of tonight's radio show.


Radio8Ball is a radio show AND a divining tool.

People call in with questions about their lives

and these questions are answered

by picking CDís at random,

putting them in the cd player,

and pressing shuffle function.

The song which is randomly chosen is the answer.

Like a tarot card.

When a live musical guest

like Steve Poltz

is on the show itís a little different but just as random.

Steve brings a list of songs,

numbered one to whatever.

The caller asks their question and picks a number.

The song number that they pick is then played by Steve.

Afterwards we all discuss what the answer meant to us.

It is a truly unique broadcast experience whether you participate

or just listen.

Hereís the details:

Tuesday, April 5th

KAOS 89.3 FM

Online broadcast:

6 to 8PM (west coast time) steve sings the theme song at 6 pm and then is on from 7pm to 8 pm

I just got thru listening to Radio8Ball to the clever masculinity of Stinky and Steve!!! At least that is the way Andros described them. My description would be absolutely freaking fabulous. Nice mixture of Poltzie advice, music, and laughter. It sounds like you guys are having a fantastic time on the road. Looking forward to you two getting to the Southeast. It doesn't look like TN is on the list, but GA is so that rocks dude!

My Phone was broke and I didn't hear what you said very good... is there an archive somewheres of this show?

Posted by: Gretchen Sally at April 5, 2005 11:29 PM

I don't think it was your phone Gretchen, I couldn't hear him either.

Andras said he thought they'd put the archive at the site listed above. I don't see it yet, but you might want to check back later.

Have missed working the shows. Thanks for having me along for the Bay Area performances. Your fans are wonderrful and I'm glad that I had the opportunity to get to know them and you and the band. I had way too much fun and truly wish that I could continue on the tour.

Have a great time on the road and don't be surprised if I suddenly appear at one of the venues!
