Thom had a great conversation with Logan Hawkes. Logan was a part of the Henry’s Child family from almost the beginning, being the guy that booked and ran “The Rant” for Z-Rock in Eugene and Springfield.
Logan talks about his start at KBVR and how he’d commute from Corvallis to Eugene to work the overnight shifts at radio stations. He shares a great story about how Nirvana’s 1991 release “Nevermind” permeated the different sub-cultures of his life and work, all on the same day.
He explains how working in Radio in the 90’s worked and the concept of Payola and how it’s generally like Politics, “but with a better sound track”. We then talk about how Logan meets Henry’s Child and tells a great story about Andrew closing out the final Z-Rock show down to the very last minute.
Logan talks about Sonic X-Plosion and gives a mini tribute to Brandon Leberman (currently at KBOO in Portland) for bringing punk rock music to Corvallis Oregon in the 80’s.
Logan tells us about his final radio gig and how he got into tech. Thom and Logan discuss their mutual friend Gary Spinrad and his contribution to the new Henry’s Child record plus the fact that Gary personally knows Elviss Simmons.
