This episode I kick things off by talking about getting sick for the first time in awhile and sharing a story about some teenagers who recently menaced us here at Sensational Manor.

Then it’s on to some TALES FROM BENNETT VALLEY. Bennett Valley was the first neighborhood I lived in here in Santa Rosa, CA. Looking back at my time there yields memories of hanging out at random fools’ houses and apartments, roaming the hood in search of 7-11, and discovering Garbage Pail Kids, M.U.S.C.L.E.s, comic books and...ADULT MAGAZINES.

This episode I talk about an All Pro Wrestling show I attended back in February, then it’s on to part 3 of my history as a fan of popular music.

Hey everybody it is I, “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega, back with Episode 3 of the “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega Podcast on the I See Robotsows. Radio Network. On this episode I take a look at the recent holiday season, seasonal anxiety, and a show I played over the holidays with my band The Invalids.

After that, it’s a muddled road as we plow through some of my weird family tree en route to talking about my history and memories as a fan of popular music in the 1980’s, 1990’s, and the 2000’s. Of course I bit off more than I could chew with this topic, so we don’t get out of the 1980’s, but if you’d like to join me for my thoughts on my earliest memories of MTV and my grade school infatuation with hair metal, sit back and enjoy the ride. And if not? Hey, who can blame you!

Hey everyone, it is I, “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega, back with the second episode of the “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega Podcast on the I See Robots Radio Network!

Today’s show is a look at my failed attempts to hang out with skateboard kids back when I was in 6th grade. It’s a humbling tale of self deprecation, but also a reminder that even the world’s biggest dweeb can come out OK on the other side. And I still contend that T&C Surf Design tees were the coolest!

Join us for this trip to the days when Lucero t-shirts were aplenty, Thrasher magazines were ubiquitous, and skateboarders took their protocol more seriously than Robert’s Rules of Order at a Rotary Club Meeting.
