Raised on skin flicks and backwoods hootch? Maybe. Hot cars and cold hearts? Possibly.

Smashin’ Transistors: Never Wanted To Be Part of the 27 Club

January 20th, 2018

“You keep living like that you'll be lucky to see thirty.”

“Oh, you're all such squares. I'm gonna live to be a very old man!”

And so the conversation went with so many family members as a youth. When they come over to visit now they just ask me to turn the music down because it is too damn noisy and say they swear that I'll never grow up.

They're still all squares.

There's a few quiet moments in this, the 27th episode of the Smashin' Transistors show. You can still play all of it really loud though if you wish.
