Guess what, it’s Friday so that means it’s another episode of The Dumb Records Radio Show!! Our show isn’t over until they pull the plug (which could be at any given point, but we’ll keep you all updated with any news regarding the status of WQNA as soon as we are able to). Today we are back on air, and continuing our streak of having special guests on with us every single time! Today’s guests are the band Reaver from Alton, Illinois playing at Dumb Records tonight! We’ll be talking with them halfway through the episode and playing plenty of their new album that just recently came out.

Gross! Nasty! Today is Friday and it’s another episode of The Dumb Records Radio Show that’s on every Friday from 4-6pm until the plug gets pulled and we are off the air (which could happen literally at any given point)! Until then we are still rockin’ and rollin’ on the radio airwaves of Springfield and we are going to do so today with THE Nasty Boys from Milwaukee, Wisconsin! (Pictured above fishing for sharks in the lakes of Wisconsin). Tune in to hear us talk to the Nasty Boys and their nasty attitudes, and also play some of their music, and also music from a lot of other local bands and musicians.

It’s Friday! And how nice, it’s a rare Friday where we don’t have anything going on as far as shows go at our spot. What a nice break on this hot hot weekend! There is Abe Fest going on tonight and tomorrow downtown however so be sure to check that out!

Today is another episode of The Dumb Records Radio Show and we are excited about this one. For today’s episode we have special guest Len Trumper of Whatever Productions coming in to talk with us. Len was active setting up concerts for bigger acts in Springfield in the 1970’s and early 1980’s such as ACDC, The Cars, Black Sabbath, KISS, RUSH, and many many more. Check out an article The Illinois Times did on Len a couple of years back right here.

Len Trumper (Whatever Productions) Upcoming Guest on Dumb Records Radio, NPR Illinois: “What Was, And What’s Next For The Illinois State Armory”

Now that we have our Dumb Records Radio Show set up to be recording and more adequately streaming old episodes, we are excited about a number of guests we have lined up on our show. This Friday coming up (July 19th) we are excited to welcome guest Len Trumper formerly of Whatever Productions onto our program. Len was responsible for bringing big acts to town from 1971 through the early 1980’s such as The Cars, ACDC, Van Halen, Black Sabbath, and many many more. There Len is pictured above with his room full of posters for concerts he was responsible for promoting. These took place at various places including The Illinois State Fairgrounds, The Illinois State Armory, and The Convention Center. The Illinois Times also did an article on Len Trumper a couple of years ago which you can find right here.

We also find it worth noting that NPR Illinois just recently came out with a piece talking about the history of the Illinois State Armory building since it was built in the 1930’s, what it’s been used for since then, and what’s next for it with a few million dollars going towards fixing up the structure in the near future. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like any big concerts are in the foreseeable future for any newly renovated Armory building. Find the full NPR Illinois piece on their website right here.

The Dumb Records Radio Show is live on Friday (and every Friday) from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on 88.3 WQNA FM. It can also be streamed online at that same time at wqnaradio.org. To check out episodes of the past head on over to our radio page.
