Today on The Dumb Records Radio Show: Benny DeWitt (Good Heart Tattoos)


We are back! With another exciting episode of The Dumb Records Radio Program today, and this time we actually have a guest for the first time in a few weeks. That is Benny DeWitt, owner of our new neighboring business here downtown on Monroe Street – Good Heart Tattoos. Good Heart Tattoos is holding a grand opening celebration all day tomorrow starting at noon, right next door to us at 414 E Monroe Street. We’ll be talking with Benny about his new shop, as well as maybe some music and show related things and memories from over the years. (Benny used to perform in bands Renae, Mother Leopard, and Hospital Job and currently performs with Layers).

The Dumb Records Radio Show airs today and every Friday from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on 88.3 WQNA fm until things potentially change with the station. Stream it online as well at There is an ongoing fundraising campaign to keep our show and other programing on WQNA and community radio alive. Consider donating to that right here. We also have been keeping a lis of recorded past episodes up on our mixcloud page.


Tonight at Dumb Records: Outcast, Prevention, Polterguts, Black Box


We are kicking off the weekend tonight at the Bread! Tonight we’ve got a hardcore show going on at our space. It features the return of Outcast from Kentucky (and no, it’s not the Outkast you are thinking of, ha ha). Outcast played at Black Sheep a year or so back. Check out their music streaming on the player below. Yes, we also have Springfield straight edge youth crew band Prevention on the lineup. Any fans of metal out there or metalcore? Good, because we have the band “Polterguts” from St. Louis as well. Opening things up is the new wild, fast, AND crazy band, Black Box.

This show will start at 7:00 pm and admission is $7. Check out a facebook event for the show right here. Also be sure to check out our shows page for a good look at what else is coming up in the near future at our space.
