Poor Kids Radio Party – at The Poor Kids Mansion – Los Angeles, CA

January 9, 2012

Poor Kids RadioThe first week of the New Year has come and gone, but not without a few shows or parties that have set the tone for what the rest of the year will bring. Los Angeles is known for lots of things that really set the city apart from any other city or “scene” , and the Poor Kids Radio show is a fine example of what makes LA a happening place like no other.

With a city as rich in punk rock history as LA, it only makes sense that a radio show dedicated to playing the best in old school punk and metal would exist in our very own backyard. Best of all, it would just happen to take place in a house that’s been transformed into the appropriately dubbed “Poor Kids Mansion”. The interior of the house is a perfect setting for a punk party and the walls like all punk houses are covered with awesome punk gig posters of years past. All of what happens at this party is broadcasted via webcam for viewers to gawk at while they listen to classic punk vinyl hand picked by DJ Dirty Danny. Interviews take place via a webcam positioned at host’s Dougie and Danger Russ who often have guests who are in bands or fixtures in the punk and metal scenes. Pasts guests have included Dave Lombardo of Slayer and London May of Samhain.

Poor Kids Radio
This weeks show had great guests who’ve all played a role in the long history of the LA punk scene; those guests included Gary Tovar (founder of Golden voice and head of GV 30), Otis (punk graphic artist), Billy Bones and Tequila Mockingbird. Tales of the scene were exchanged live on air and viewable on their site at

The interviews were all very insightful and a punk rock history lesson to say the least. Gary and Otis even gave away rare posters and shirts to listeners calling in and emailing the poor kids.

Make sure to tune in next week as they go live on the air at midnight! It’s a fun way to spend your Saturday evening and early Sunday morning. So tune in, turn on and burn out with Poor Kids Radio.
