Turned Out A Punk

Damian Abraham has been many things... the singer of a critically acclaimed band, a failed VJ and food network host, one of the minds behind TV's "The Wrestlers", parent of 3... and undeniably, a punk music obsessive. Each week, he sits down and chats with an interesting person from various walks of life to find out how their world was influenced and changed by the discovery of a novelty genre that supposedly died out in 1978... PUNK!



Episode 326 - Ari Katz (Lifetime, Beach Rats, Zero Zero, Enuf)

Well, we didn’t miss your birthday this year! Today on the show, Damian is joined by Lifetime’s legendary singer Ari Katz! Damian is beside himself with joy as he talks with one of his favourite vocalists. Listen in as the two discuss: eating Taco Bell Hot Sauce for sustenance on tour, realizing people are trying to sing like you, having to walk away from music and so much more! This is NOT TO BE MISSED!
