John Mahoney, guest DJ on Local Anesthetic (May 1996)

2/6/2018
More
John was a guest three times on Local Anesthetic. He always arrived with an armful of CDs (it was the '90's!) and demonstrated a breadth of musical knowledge and taste that, frankly, made him more than qualified to be a WXRT jock. However, his ongoing and highly successful role as Martin Crane in "Frasier" along with his first love- acting on the stage- with Steppenwolf (amongst others) kept him plenty busy.

It was a pleasure to feature Josh and Eli Caterer of the Smoking Popes as my final guests on Local Anesthetic.

10/2/2017
More

Shoe's "Country Home" is the latest entry in their quest to be your next favorite band. Thankfully, I've been on that train for awhile now. Find out why on last night's Local Anesthetic with the bearded cabal of Paul Priest, Matt...
