Episode 16 – Las Vegas Grind

The humdrum grind of living in a city that never sleeps. What to do in Las Vegas if you don’t wanna gamble…


  • Special Guest Yvan Serrano, DJ Healer Selector and Guitarist from The Dustaphonics as well as  Raison D’Etre head honcho. Yvan has worked with many artists on the Surf, Soul, Rock and Roll and Rockabilly Scenes.
  • Is it really possible to pick your all time top tunes? If you had to pick 100 records to represent the musical endeavour of humanity what would they be?
  • Some music is meant for indoors, some for outdoors, some for day some for night. Why do some tunes suit a particular time and place?
  • The Burlespue Musical scale: Do Re Me Me Me Me Me…(Ad Infinitum).
  • Yvan politely declines an offer to become a pornstar.
  • Mexican Rockabilly: Young kids creating a new underground scene.
  • Lou Rawls, that rare breed that is engaged both musically and politically.
  • Why does the music industry sign actors and fame academy graduates instead of real musicians.
