Where and when can you catch All Ages Radio?
You can catch us Friday nights at midnight (Sat.Morn) on

in the whole f**king world!
Can you give a history of All Ages Radio?
A complete history is available on our site, www.allagesradio.50megs.com,
it's long, exciting, cool, and fresh.
long have you guys been doing the show?
We (Kevin and Gordon) have been here for about a year and
Have you ever gotten in trouble with the FCC?
We learned the hardway that you can't talk about "putting
things." We're lucky to be where we are at so we can
learn our boundaries
without getting our asses kicked too hard by "The Man."
When will you guys have to give up the show?
When we graduate. Then we'll sell it.
is the best thing about doing All Ages Radio?
Getting to hang with bands we have looked up to, playing
good music on the radio, full control over 4 hours of the
airwaves, and chicks!
Who are some of your favorite guests youve ever had
on the show?
Rise Against..friends of ours, Haymarket Riot...great f***king
Lawrence Arms...always drunk, Preacher Gone to Texas...the
next "Big Thing",
and Jinxpack...Kevin and Gordon clones.
Have you ever had any guests that you didnt really
care for on the show?
Of course...but we don't talk shit. We like to give everyone
to do their thing because we didn't have to work half as
hard to get this
show as bands do for recognition.
What guests have gotten the most call ins?
Well there are good call-ins and bad call-ins. Preacher
has been the
biggest turnaround after they played the show. Not a week
goes by without
Is there a single band that has had more requests than any
The classics get constant requests (Rancid, NOFX, AFI, Ramones)
but more loyal fans tend to favor the up-and-comers.
Do any labels ever get annoying about you guys playing their
No labels in general, but someone needs to tell Redline
when to back the f**k off!
What are some labels that have been cool to deal with through
Fat Wreck Chords and Victory treat us like kings, same with
Sinister and Thick. It's so awesome how much these labels
appreciate what we are doing, and it's equally as cool to
us as fans of the music who get sent crates and crates of
CDs. Without the labels and distribution like Redline, we
would be very dry and itchy. We owe it all to the labels.
are your favorite releases of 2002?
Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends, Atreyu - Suicide
Notes and Butterfly Kisses, Transplants - Transplants, the
used - the used,
Stereotyperider - Same Chords, Same Songs, Same 6 Strings,
The Lawrence Arms - Apathy and Exhaustion, Preacher Gone
to Texas - Choice Vs Chance, just to name a few, if you
want a more complete list, listen Friday nights at

Of all time? Naked Raygun, Styx, Cheap Trick, Alkaline Trio,
Slapstick, Rise Against, Lawrence Arms, 88 Fingers Louie,
Ambition Mission, DISTURBED!!!!!!!!
Where is your favorite place in Chicago to see shows?
By far the Fireside of course, but the Metro is getting
up there as far as the bands they get, for some reason local
churches and clubs are blowing
Since the name of the show is All Ages, what do you think
of over 21 shows?
They are stupid as hell for sure, but that takes us into
a whole different topic. There shouldn't be restrictions
on hearing music. If someone is going to buy the album,
they respectfully should be able to see the band in
What guests are you guys hopefully going to have on All
Ages this year?
