Customer Reviews

Electric Live Wire

Reminds me of Saturday Night Live back when it was funny. Playful skits and clever interviews. LOVE the Bruce Campbell and Darkhorse interview. The comic book goddess in me was very pleased. Part corn, part fluff, all va va voom. Flirty and fun this podcast is completely worth your time.

Makes Driving Enjoyable!

Wonderfully entertaining! The shows are funny, poignant and informative. Thanks Live Wire!

live wire, indeed

Most Stumptown natives and many folks not fortunate enough to be born in the Northwest know that Live Wire! truly rocks. A tiny band of radio soldiers battle big icky corporate radio programs and not only win, but stick the corpse on a stick and dance around it. You listen, you'll agree.
