This week's episode of the Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast is taken from an interview for Nobodies Radio Station: Heavy Rock Radio (without the music) that I conducted with members of the Tampa, Florida based band JETTER. Set up by good friend of the podcast and promoter at SONIC BOOM PROMOTIONS, Marc Gembinski, the band is chatting about their history, band name, their influences and roots in the iconic Florida hard rock/metal scene, new music, older music, recording plans and more! Joining me from the legendary Morrisound Studios in Tampa, this is JETTER! Check out their socials below for more on the band!

This is Part 2 of my chat with Mr. Marty Gold. Marty is a professional wrestler, play-by-play broadcaster, radio personality, writer, journalist, and so much more that it's no surprise that just one episode alone will not hold all of this man's stunning career. In Part Two, we discuss his professional wrestling career throughout Canada and his work and experience gained in the world of play-by-play wrestling announcing, including his brushes with some of the Canadian wrestling royalty, considering that he is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada! It's time for more gold...

This 2-part set of episodes is going to be pure audio gold, with my guest for the next 2 weeks being Mr. Marty Gold. Marty is a professional wrestler, play-by-play broadcaster, radio personality, writer, journalist, and so much more that it's no surprise that just one episode alone will not hold all of this man's stunning career. In Part One, we discuss the formation and his role as the editor in chief of his online Canadian Jewish newspaper 'The J' and how it's grown to be a major source of news and information for Canada's Jewish Communities. We also get to dive in a little bit about his time spent in Canadian sports/talk radio and some behind the scenes understanding of radio and broadcasting in general. Stay tuned for all this and more to come on next week's Part Two!

Meet Leo the Dog: Hi! I'm Leo! I'm 5 years old as of September 2020 and I'm a Bernese Mountain dog. My owner, Maryse, who is also the Unpaid Promoter of the Nobodies Are Somebodies podcast, took me to meet Genevieve from Beyond My Leash. I was feeling anxious and nervous all the time, especially in social situations, and she could see it in my eyes and my body. So, she brought me to see Genevieve and now I feel good and proud, and I make her proud - now I'm anxious to show off to you, the listeners, what I have learned in "school" this year! Thanks for listening - ruff ruff!!

Along with Unpaid Promoter Maryse, we visited a couple of folks in La municipalité de la Nation Municipality in Plantagenet Ontario Canada and we met with Rachel Blaquiere and Jacques Groulx who have this hauntingly striking cavalcade of characters all displayed on thier property. Because you can't Trick Or Treat in 2020, have a visit to this spot in the Nation Region (20 minutes east of Rockland Ontario) and if you can't, then have a listen to our chat with Jacques and Rachelle right here and now, and be sure to have a look at some video shot by Maryse of me wandering around the property getting freaked out by all the wonders I see!
