Episode #174, Interview with Devon Kay (Direct Hit!)

10:37am - 11:38am

Hello Hello Hello!

Some of you might enjoy computer games and some of you might not. That information didn’t affect my decision to come up with an idea for this episode, but my interview with Devon Kay of Direct Hit! did.

Last October I happened to be in Boston, MA and absolutely unplannedly I saw Devon there. He invited me to a store called Replay’d which he managed at the time. We did a quick interview and spoke about computer games, weird consoles, Devon’s collection of rare cartridges, Steel Battalion controller and a way to bail Devon out of a jail if he ever gets arrested.

To continue computer game theme I did a ticket giveaway to Anamanaguchi and Lindsay Lowend @ Venue. Both bands sound like a soundtrack to games which Devon sells at Replay’d.

And in the end of the show I played a new song by The Jolts and songs by Storc and Slow Learners who played The Jolts album release show.
