Earlier this week one I was just shooting the s*** with a friend and she said threw an odd bet out at me. She said that she thinks I could get 50 people to bow to me at Kilo remotes in a month. She wins the bet if 50 people bow to me which means I would then have to juggle hedgehogs. I haven’t established what I would get if I win but I am pretty sure I will, I don’t think anyone will be bowing to me anytime soon! As a disclaimer, I was drinking when I agreed to this.
There is a large area near the Kilo studios where bad things go to die. I call this place the Kilo graveyard. Among other things buried here there is a giant dismantled satellite dish, an handmade motorized airplane made with materials that may have been illegally obtained at one time, probably a few hidden stashes of coke and what appear to be human sized boxes that are heavy and nailed shut. I’m not saying that there are former jocks partially buried out there, but I’m also not saying that there aren’t any either. Some of the more unusual looking pieces are these heavy as f*** concrete pillars.
Unless you’ve been in the business you may not recognize what these are. These pillars used to reside in the Kilo studio and turntables were placed on top. If the turntables were to be placed on an average surface someone might bump into them on accident and then there would be skipping, we couldn’t have that on air! So these mighty monoliths were used to make sure that there would never be an interruption in the music, no one was bumping these puppies. One of them even has a born on date.
This pillar is almost 27 years old. I think we’re going to have to plan a special surprise for it’s birthday this year, what do you think?
Ross Ford has a unique way of picking winners for football games during the season, he brings in some reptiles from Scales and Tails and has those reptiles munch on some rodents. Well Ross has to have a place to let the massacre happen, here it is, the box of death.
As you can see, there is blood, s*** and the tears of small rodents still present! How about a closer look?
We’ve been doing some remodeling here at Kilo Kontrol. In thre lobby there used to be a giant planter, it was probably added some time in 1852. It’s been removed and there is now a large area for us to fill. A few options that have been thrown around; a scorpion pit, a puppy adotion area, a seating area, hot tub or a snake pit.
I love the end of Spring through the end of Summer which constitutes the busiest time for concert season during the year. Last year I went to over 20 shows, this year might even be better! The next big show will be Korn at the Fillmore at the end of February. Some people do not like the dubstep/rock love child that was Korn’s most recent album, but I think it is going to lend itself quite well to a unique live show and might surprise a bunch of people by being one of the best concerts this year. Want to check out the show yourself? Keep listening, and you could win free tickets!
As the weekend overnight jock I have free reign over the entire building when I am on air. I am going to use that freedom to take you along on a tour, this is the first installment of what I am dubbing “Behind the Scenes.” Here at Kilo we have a long heritage of rock going all the way back to the 70′s. That means we have a lot of vinyl that we used to play.
I pulled a record out at random, Born Again by Black Sabbath. After Ozzy left the group Ian Gillan, former Deep Purple front-man, stepped in for one album. Although this album didn’t break any records I love the cover, even though it has been ranked as one of the worst album covers ever! What the f*** do critics know anyway?
What else lurks in the shadows at Kilo? Stick around for the next installement of “Behind the Scenes” to see!
