Roger, Roger What’s Our Vector?

A GREAT TIME at the AIR FESTIVAL this year featuring the DC-3 “the airliner that changed aviation” from Historic Flight (PAE) was had by all. Including myself, as host. The P51-D Mustang was a big hit, and the Jumpers from Ritzville kept everyone watching those skies all day wide! in fact the whole crew at Stout Flight Services, LWS ATC (Wendy & everyone up in tower) The EAA, and the Friends of the Airport were ALL such gracious hosts and what an honor to be able to salute our regions veterans like that,  and be able to check out some really cool aircraft

along the way! Hope you had a chance to check that out, the airplanes rides booked up very fast within the first hour or so and they were still doing ‘single seats’ on the R44 when I had to leave at 4:45 to go broadcast from the fair. But we can save that for another podcast.

‘The Seventeen’

AIR CREATIVE teams up with THE COMMEMORATIVE AIR FORCE & LC Valley’s FRIENDS OF THE AIRPORT to document one of the last flying B-17 ‘Fortresses’.. A beautiful bird, and flying true testimonial to the men who flew them. Filmed over the gorgeous interior Northwest right between Idaho & Montana. What a truly memorable ride and life changing look inside the lives of the crews that flew them. Special thanks to the Airport Authority and Ralph & Paula Stout for helping to make it happen. If you ever get a chance to step inside, take it! The whole crew at the C.A.F. are just an incredible team & Foundation. Thank you, Veterans!

Myles & Miles

Congrats to Spokane’s very own “Rock Star” MYLES KENNEDY… confirmed to now be in the studio working on the new SOLO CD! Oh and did we say, with the “Guitar hero’s” guitar Hero? SLASH….

That’s too many World Champion Axe-Men for one location. Goodluck and can’ wait to hear it!

(Myles Kennedy a local favorite and only 7-time winner of the Spokane Axe-man Competition. And that was BEFORE he played for Mayfield-4, Citizen Swing, or Alterbridge) He is a great guitarist and a really great guy.

What Station Is That?

Honored to have been nominated “Best In The Business” by industry giants AV-DELI!

Welcome to the lab.

Welcome to the lab.

Representing over 50 markets & seven countries, in this yearly compilation we hear some of the greatest Production/Imaging people in THE WORLD. These, the artists that color “the sounds you hear”, create the flavor of your favorite shows; bring life to disembodied words branding attitude, putting personality to the intangible, and leave a memorable impression that jumps at you from your radio.

Known simply in the trade as “the missing link”, these master designers live by one simple rule: A station (on a crowded dial) without identity, is just a number~ without a face.

Check ‘em out:

They Came To Play

LEARN'N TO BURN

LEARN'N TO BURN

Spokane’s freshest rock, for two fun-filled days at CLUB-EDGE this weekend! It was the BATTLE OF THE BANDS; Six of the area’s finest (plus BUTT UGLY, the official “battle opening band”) taking stage for solid guitar-fury, screamin’ leads & enthusiastic audience appeal! All competing for their chance to score prime-opening slot for nationally touring ROYAL BLISS (Club Edge; 11-13)

A big thanks to ALL the bands, none of them ‘sucked’ and that made it hard; The judges definitely had their work cut out, weighing each band’s own strength and weakness, and the crowd had their favorites, too!

L S Diablo wins "the battle"

L S Diablo wins "the battle"

HERE ARE THE FINAL RESULTS:

#1. L S DIABLO  …Will be opening for ROYAL BLISS on 11-13!!!

#2. VANGUARD

#3. PRIOR SIN

Honorable mentions to BUMP DOOSIE, CRIMSON RESOLVE, and LEVEL ZERO for awesome sets. Everyone came to rock the place, and I would have been happy to have any one of theses bands opening for a number of shows…

Runners' up / VANGAURD

NEXT UP: SUPERSUCKERS @ CLUB-EDGE (SPRAGUE & VISTA) THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, 10-30. I remember watching these all-star punkin’ rock-a-billy blues-dudes opening for FOO FIGHTERS, in San Fran about 15 years ago at the legendary Fillmore and the SMOKED THE NIGHT… Don’t miss this show! LO-DOUGH and good to go, we’ll see you Friday night.

Want to thank ROYAL BLISS for an awesome show at CLUB-EDGE! …You want some pictures?100_1110100_1012100_1073100_1029

Royal Bliss pics are here!

Playing to a “private party” of Rock listeners who braved the November weather to Rock the night away, we enjoyed opening acts; 33, Character Flaw, and L.S.Di-ablo (Winners of the “battle Of the Bands” two weeks ago, seen below) There were also many “Cameo” appearences by Tanzi and a few of the RACKTOBER CALANDER GIRLS 100_1039sharing stage with GEOFF SCOTT as MC’s for the evening. It was a great night of solid wall-to-wall rockin’ and excitement! ROYAL BLISS performed a full set and then asked everybody if they minded if they played a few new songs (Not always a good idea, but this night, the crowd seemed genuinely receptive in the notion) it was good to hear a fresh set.

They also had a NEW CD in tow “STUDIO A” (that isn’t going to be officially released until next week) found one at the merch stand, and bought it, then I turned around to see Taylor standing there “Congratulations, you just bought the VERY FIRST copy of our new CD!” *Bonus prize* it was then promptly whisked backstage to be signed by the entire band. Kewl Beans!

PS: Chris, love the “Dudley Doo-right” you should keep it, bro.

Power Windows (95)

America… LOOK OUT!  The year was 1995, and I had been working at a station in town doing the Local Music Show… from my Mom’s basement every week. The program lasted for 5 YEARS (A record for local Rock radio at the time) sometimes shipping them in from Oregon or Seattle – or Canadia just to play their CD and sit on “the couch” and hang out in the theme of a giant backstage party. We had great names and big stars and little bands and unknown stars. Artists like Peter Cornell (Chris’s brother), Supersonic Soul Pimps, Civilized Animal, and Myles Kennedy (remember Citizen Swing & Mayfield Four?) … all “cut their rug” with us and occasionally treated you to live sets while Mom & Floyd would come down and serve us hot chowder and try not to complain about the smoke pots too much…

The ORIGINAL "Basement" set

The ORIGINAL "Basement" set

I bring you this little “Flashback”, because: Today, the GEOFF SCOTT WEBSITE turns 14 years old! Born out of necessity (the mother of local-rock invention, like duct tape) as a way to post clips, photos and links to bands we were talking to each Sunday night  and every show. (that stations website never changed in the 5 years we ran this thing) But for ME… “if it’s on the air, you’ll find it there” has always been the key.

The website, in it’s original form, was housed on AOL Hometown and therefore was afforded just FIVE MEASLY MEGABYTES of internet world. We rotated graphics, made a little “chat” blog, and posted very tiny clips and announcements based on the current show and next week’s shows, etc. I even, for a time, produced a “streaming” video content that was actually (I can tell you now) nothing more than a series of .GIF images I shot while recording the show, and then constantly updated to the Hometown server at just the right time… as it played back on-air. But then there was this 4 track Akai Reel To Reel I to tow with me everywhere I went (including the station)

Rock 106 & a YES t-shirt... ahh good times!

Rock 106 & a YES t-shirt... ahh good times!

Now…  TODAY: With more “hits” than a Google Deita Von-Teese Image search,we sure have come a long way together since the old days of my first Windows 95 computer (75 MHZ, 697MB hard-drive, 8mb of RAM= $3,000) and My mom’s old Apple2 on the dining room table back in Junior High; the “Commodore-64 Kids” could only gawk at.

As I look forward to continue in this contact and tradition, after 20 years Rocking this place and two decades more… to come! let’s hope, huh?
