This week it's vocalist/guitarist Tim Holmwood from the British Indie Rock band Ali In The Jungle. Tim discusses the band formation, the name, the sound, a peek at the writing process and all about the band's first recorded music, the recently released 'Anyways' EP. We premiere the first single, "Drunk Generation" and chat about the song and it's meaning. Hailing from Milton Keynes, it's time to welcome you to the jungle...see what I did there??

This week we double dip and have not 1 but 2 stories for you on Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast, where we focus on two folks and how they have been affected by the recent Corona Virus outbreak and what was happening in their lives when it hit, and what has changed for them since that time. First up, RPN Karine works in a local Ottawa region hospital and she discusses procedures and day to day work life during the pandemic; after this former 2x guest of the show Xavier Himma (avid cyclist) shares his recent trip biking through South Africa and making it into Eastern Europe territories right as the virus hit, and what happened next when the lockdown began and how it affected his safe return to Canada. These are their experiences: thank you all for listening and supporting Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast!

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:

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 on the Nobodies Are Somebodies podcast, I'm speaking with a Sober Coach, who himself has been sober now for over 11 years and works to help others by being a sponsor to those who battle addictions in their lives and helps them see a way out. Alcoholics Anonymous has helped this Sober Coach stay on the right track and he is happy to point out how much it has helped strengthen his own life and rebuild important relationships. He speaks very candidly about his life before and after finding sobriety, his family dynamics and what keeps him happy being thankful for each new day. Hear his story now and be sure to have a look at his blog which boasts an amazingly inspiration title!

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. He has performed across the U.S. and around the world with Graham Bonnet (Rainbow), Dawn Robinson (En Vogue), Jimi Jamison (Survivor), The Babys and more. Eric is currently on tour with London, the Original Sunset Strip Players.

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.

Shannon Wilk is my guest this week, an amazing young guitarist, rock journalist and photographer. who has accomplished a lot in her young years and has amazing taste in music might I say! Shannon was brought to my attention by Eddie Cantu, the same gentleman who is bringing the Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast to NAMM Winter 2020 in Anaheim California this coming January. 

Shannon tells me all about getting into guitar playing, the interviews with rock legends that grace her website and her love of KIX! She loves 80s hard rock and metal, and this was my opportunity to geek out with her on the music we love and what's coming up for her in her bright rock and roll future. We are continuing on the road to NAMM!!
