Under the Influence w Josh & Rich - KRLY 107.9FM Mountain Country - Thursdays at 7PM
I have had the luxury of listening and reviewing many radio shows over the years. My passion is to keep the radio airwaves open and relevant for everyone, no matter what level of technology that one has available to them. Every so often a new show pops up in my radar that excites me and makes me want to listen to more.
The show, which is broadcasts from the Excalibur Cigar Lounge in San Diego’s Kearny Mesa area, is tagged as “Two Slightly Immature dudes that smoke premium cigars and discuss various music legends and their influences to success” or something like that. The slightly immature part comes out every so often and it actually makes me laugh out loud more times than not, especially when Josh or their on-air engineer, Big Jonathan Gates (KGB DJ and Dusty Futon podcaster) hammer Rich for his awkward attempt at an Elvis Presley impersonation (“Dude they can’t see your upper lip move on radio”) or they bag on Josh about his self-described, “receding” (“Dude, I love you but you are way more like bald”) hairline. Even when they deviate to childish antics, they quickly bring us back to the topic at hand and play popular or more obscure tunes by the artist/band they are highlighting that week (or tunes by other artists that were influences).
