Real People With Real Stories

Thank you for listening to my podcast

Mar 30, 2020

It's a solo show this week and I am making the most of it by getting around to something I haven't done yet but always wanted to - receive and answer questions submitted to me by fans and listeners of my 80s hard rock and metal weekly music and talk show, ParaVice City. It airs every Saturday night on my Nobodies Radio Station: Heavy Rock Radio at 9PM EST (replays at 12am EST Sunday morning, as well as Wednesdays at 7pm & 11pm EST). We play 80s artist's music that is NOT the same tired replays on regular or even Satellite Radio stations and dig deeper into bands that didn't have big hits but have great music that stands the test of time! If you love 80s rock with a twist of newer bands with that classic sound, get you some of our show with my co-host Kevin Matthews. More about the show here:

Rockin Interviews Photographer and Reviewer Shannon Wilk returns to the show this week to discuss her latest projects, working for a new publication "Amplified Edge" as well as what she has been up to since we spoke last season, and of course her experiences aboard the latest Monsters of Rock Cruise 2020 and meeting one of my favorite bands of all time, Scotland's own Heavy Pettin'! Too many shows to see on the cruise but lots to discuss. More about Shannon in the links below!

Myself, Chad Vice, am joined by my 80s rock and talk show ParaVice City co-host Kevin Matthews as we talk about music, the state of music in the world today with all the looming health concerns, and argue over bands charging money for concerts when they aren't always really performing 'LIVE'. We are just two bald dudes with attitudes who just love to geek out on music! And of course, we talk about our beloved radio show that we host every week (Saturday Nights at 9PM EST) on Nobodies Radio Station: Heavy Rock Radio. Shameless self promotion - why not?

This week I had the pleasure to speak with veteran keyboardist Eric Ragno, and hear all about his experiences playing with some of the biggest names in the music genre I love, good ol' 80s rock, and hear about what got him into music and how coming down to LA in the 90s was the right career move after everyone left the scene for dead. A bit about Eric from his bio so you know what's up:


Eric Ragno is a keyboard player based in Los Angeles. Known in rock circles as the “go-to guy”, he has appeared on dozens of rock albums, performing on tracks with Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley (Kiss), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and many others.

David K. Montoya was very kind to invite me onto his podcast "Who's The Boss" back in the summer of 2019, and now of course I must return the favor and get him and his story here on my little show. So here is, David talking all about his deep connection to his family, starting a podcasting network, populating that network with shows he created and liked, and eventually taking his name and brand to bigger things as we roll into 2020. Thanks must also go out to David for allowing our ParaVice City 80s rock and metal weekly show to be syndicated and on-demand on his network.

This week I have Part 1 of 2 of my sit down with old work friend Chris Flynn, a man I knew over a 4 year period about 6 or 7 years ago, but of course in that environment you really only get to know a portion of who that person really is. So I welcomed this chance to sit down with him and have a nice long conversation about his life long before and long after I knew him, what brought him to our old place of work, what the tipping point to leave it was and where he headed on after that. In part 1 we hear about him growing up in Goose Bay, relocating to Ottawa, and getting into the Security field where we would cross paths in the infamous building of hard lessons...the Ottawa Hospital (TOH).

Chris loves to cook and share his meal creations, check him out on Instagram: @flynnies_foodies

This week I am chatting with actor Patrick Harney, raised in Michigan, and we chat about him getting the acting bug when he was convinced by his peers to take part in the school musical while he was still interested in sports (no relation to the plot theme of High School Musical!) and from there moved into college theatre and on to bigger and prosperous things. We chat all about that and of course, what his earliest childhood memory is growing up in the small town of Haslett.

Brian Frank is the singer of the band 'Killer Bee', and started his career in Toronto Ontario Canada, back in 1985 and by 1990, had fallen in love with life in Sweden and moved there permanently. In 1992 Brian formed the band Killer Bee and has released 7 studio albums since then - but now it's time for him to shine on his own!

Brian is releasing his first solo album project called "Celebrate Life" and with it comes a brand new single and video "It's Not the End" which deals with issues plaguing our society. Human Rights and the violations that occur within it, for example: genocide, human trafficking and others. Brian feels very strongly about the Witness program, co-founded by Peter Gabriel in 1992 that supports preserving video evidence of history's atrocities. 

Hear about Brian's music and his career, now in his own words here on this week's episode!

Eric James Morris is an entertainment professional who has spent a large part of his life expressing his love of the arts through music, acting in film and television, and hosting educational videos that focus primarily on building construction related topics. Eric is also an entrepreneur, and is always looking at different opportunities outside of the entertainment industry where he can involve himself and create success within those endeavors.

Eric is my guest this week on the Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast, thanks to the right awesome Steve Joiner who once again puts me in touch with some amazing guests. Eric holds nothing back as we discuss how he got bitten by the acting bug, his work outside of the acting field, some of his favorite roles ( and of course, one not so favorite role, which maybe we spend too much time talking about!)

Hailing from Lester, United Kingdom, not terribly far from the city of London, Mahmood Reza joins me via Skype from his work and after a long day of the numbers game where he was, he sat down with me to have a chat about his life, such as the different career paths and roles he had before he got to forming his own business, Proactive Resolutions, all the way back in 1995 from his bedroom and watching it grow to where it supports him and his family. Mahmood always knew that numbers and explaining how they work to people came very easy to him, and that led to being a teacher for a few years before moving on to work on the board of directors for a local brewing company, and helping them grow. It was at this point that Mahmood tells an interesting story about how it was time to get to another major life milestone - getting his driver's license!

Bill Foster is my guest this week, and we are chatting about writing, acting and producing his new feature film 'Showdown on the Brazos', from thinking of the concept to writing it and taking the script from 30 pages to 50 to 111 at the time of this interview. The movie will see it's worldwide premier soon, until then we chat about the premise of the movie, how much work and time goes into a movie like this, and why the town of Blanco, Texas was the right place to film a western. This is a very revealing look into the work and the production of a major movie comes together, and I enjoyed being schooled on this by Bill and his warm Texas personality!
