This episode I am pleased to have Chris Trapper in the studio for an interview and performance. He was unable to come in a couple of months ago as a family emergency prompted the cancellation of a few dates of his tour, which included his appearance on this show. Now Chris is back on the road and after a great show at Mick's, he stopped by the studio the next morning for coffee and music on Worlds of Wayne. Unfortunately, I was a bit under the weather and as you will see, had absolutely no voice.
Regardless, it turned out just fine and Chris played a few tunes and talked about his current tour. To be honest, for the past 3 months, I have been listening to his records "Hey You" and "Songs From The Middle Of The World" just about non-stop. Something which I have had the pleasure of doing with studio guests only a couple of times.
If you have never heard of this fellow Chris Trapper, then you will probably recognize his voice as soon as he starts singing. His songs have appeared in several movies, TV and radio. He was in a band called the Pushstars. They were kinda a big deal. Now he is on another solo tour crossing the country bringing his fans his amazing brand of music. Click below for more info.

My pod partner in crime Kendall Jane and I welcome Lash and Josh into the studio to talk about the Pine Ridge Toy Drive, now in its 5th year. It's the first Christmas themed show of the year and it's a very special one. Read below to learn more about this toy drive and how you can help make some amazing kids very happy...
The Toy Drive for Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is back! Since 2003, Omaha rockabilly musician Larry Dunn has organized a toy drive for the children of the Porcupine District of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. According to the 2000 census, Pine Ridge’s Lakota Sioux community is one of the most poverty stricken communities in the United States. The children of the reservation are desperately in need of some sunshine and cheer, especially during a time of cold, harsh winds and immense desolation like winters on the reservation can be. The majority of gifts for the children are collected at benefit concerts put on by Omaha-area musicians. READ MORE HERE

Well, the Worlds Tallest Mohawk was a huge hit and has made national and international news. Check out my myspace page to see the video I made and the interview on CNN. Yes, another CNN interview.

Cheers to Sammy. This episode is dedicated to my sister-in-law who I have had the privilege of knowing for several years. She is leaving for a job with her company in London, and I hope my friends there get in touch.
We will miss her like mad.
I recorded a bit of our trip to visit her in Chicago, a city that my wife and I fell in love with because of Sammy. Chi-town will never be the same without her, but we have made some great connections there. Enjoy the music and the party commentary.
