Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 82: Andy Granelli

Born in the same hospital and lived on the same street as me; our lives collide with an ‘outbreak’ of stories involving: punk rock, skateboarding, the Peninsula, Model Americans, Nerve Agents, playing the SOTY Party, joining the Distillers and hitting them drums. Thanks Andy, glad we finally got her done!

Andy sent me the photos below from the old days…

With all that’s going on in the world lately, I decided to lengthen today’s show in hopes of bringing you something else to focus on and hopefully a few laughs as well. Today on the show is Dandy Harris (co-owner of 510 skateshop) discussing growing up in Northern California, meeting her future husband and opening a successful skate shop together in the heart of Berkeley, the Travis Scott Dunks rage, Fugazi at Dolores Park, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s at Bottom of the Hill, a call from Max Schaaf, donating to Treasure Island’s DIY and more. Oh, and “Dogs eat their own shit—we’re doing the cockroach yeah! ”
