Talia Keys stops by to play the Potty Break Song live and chat with the RFH crew about being a musician in Utah. Read a brief overview or listen to the whole interview below.
Bill: How did you come to be who you are? Talia: Growing up here and having an open minded mother, I was raised by a single mom and she supported my music from a very young age, bought me instruments. Bill: Always wanted to do music? Talia: Yeah, from a young age, or something. I was starving for attention as a child. So basically, just having to support a family and wanting to do music. But just the last six years I’ve been playing, I’d say professionally. Making money. Bill: You were telling me before you played the song, you’re actually able to support yourself doing music now? Talia: Because I live in my mom’s basement, the American dream! Gina: But she can buy gas, and she can buy lunch… Talia: Exactly! But yeah I do, this is what I do full time is music.
Bill: When you travel you travel with a band mostly? Talia: Mostly, yeah. This was my first solo thing where it’s kind of like I need to go cross-country but we can’t afford to go as a whole band so I went. But yeah my band Marinade is pretty much who I’ve gigged with for the last five years straight, relentlessly. Bill: And you still do stuff with that band as well. Talia: Yup, we’re playing this weekend and next weekend. Gina: You’re busy, I’ve got your website up. Talia: Tonight I’m going to see Elton John, but no tomorrow I’m playing at the Ogden Equinox festival. It’s kind of a local music festival that’s happening, low key. We party hard in Ogden, don’t tell Fox news.

Bill: “Looking at a picture of you and looking at your tattoos, you’ve got lots of them you know from what I can see from looking at your pictures talk about all of that. Talk about all of that a little bit. Why you’ve done it and what they mean to you.”
Jason David Frank: “I was never allowed tattoos on Power Rangers maybe I’ve rebelled a bit.. No, uhh, I just like tattoos you know I have my little girl on my chest and I just like the design you know I’ve started a clothing company so I can tap out Tap Out which is the first Christian clothing line ever which is called Jesus didn’t tap.

Comedian Hannibal Buress called in to Radio From Hell today to talk about his upcoming performance at the Oddball Comedy Festival.
Tell us about the Oddball Comedy Festival
It’s the second year of the Oddball Tour, our first time in Salt Lake City, but it’s a big tour. We have Louie CK, Sarah Silverman, I can’t remember all of them in Salt Lake, and it changes every city. Jeff Wilson and Live Nation Comedy just had the idea to have a big comedy tour at these outdoor amphitheater. It hasn’t been done before, and it’s been really cool, very different and very exciting.
What’s comedy like in the day time in an outdoor amphitheater?
It’s different when it’s day time. If it’s good comedians and the crowd gets into it, then it can be great doing comedy in the day time. It gets a little darker as the Main Stage starts. Ideally you want it to be darker when you’re doing comedy. If you’re doing dirty jokes people may not want to laugh at it in the day time because they feel more visible and people can see them, but it still works. If people are up for having a good time, it doesn’t matter if it’s sunlight or darkness.
Where does this adrenaline junking come from?
I was filming for 6 weeks ago and fractured my foot. It really hurt. I thought about where it comes from and I just like the rush of jumping out of an airplane. It’s a sport. Maybe it’s the on edge stuff we do like MMA, jumping from bridges and airplanes. I have a little girl that does front flips in my living room and have Cami who plays with nun-chucks. I don’t really know where it comes from but it really keeps us on our toes and keeps me alive.
If you can be any color Ranger what would it be?
I love the Green Ranger. I love the original cast. But things started getting weird and crazy. Changes kept happening and I kept changing suits. I never regret anything and I can what I want. I love having no pressure. To me, it wasn’t about the color. It was annoying but every season has memories and all different. I grew up with most of these guys. It’s not about money or anything. It’s my choice. I want all my fans to be happy.
