Circus Browns Not a Side Show (podcasts)
TTYL! LMAO! BRB! WWJD? WTF?! WTFWJD?LLRR! Local Live Rock and Roll. Every Friday on KRCL 90.9FM produced by the tragically glamorous and transiently agoraphobic sex god, Connery, and hosted by vegan activist and polyamorous pit master spinning the sweet wax when the set ain't live, the spy who loved me- Circus Brown.

Every time I have a band on Not a Side Show I sit back and listen to them play and think to myself that I hope this never ends. Thankfully there's 127 new bands formed every week in Utah, so there's a really good chance we will never run out of music. Doomcupcake was the guest on January 20, 2023. They rocked, the interview was perfect and hilarious, posting this podcast is so satifying. I hope you enjoy this and all the choice bands that've played on Not a Side Show.

On September 23, 2002 Not a Side Show started as an early morning show from 3 to 5 in the AM on 90.9 FM KRCL in Salt Lake City, Utah. Still on the same great radio station but now at 8 to 10:30 PM on Friday nights. On this 20th anniversary I replayed the same setlist that I had 20 years ago and had local metal heads MERULA play live in the KRCL studio. Check my socials for the original set list.

The way I remember this is I called a band named Spiritmaster and asked them to play my show, then I get a call that someone in that band is in jail our on vacation or working late and I was bummed. I was all excited to talk DAOC with Spiritmaster, but they knew some band called Sleepwalkers and they were supposed to play but then something about cereal or a vegan deli happened and I was cool with it. They had me get in touch with Broken Spells who this podcast is not only dedicated to but also about. Tuesday.
