Swinging Dick's Saloon, the kind of dive that has way better beers on tap than a hole in the wall like it should have.
Like this one
It's the kind of place that doesn't have to say it's a dive bar because everyone knows just by looking at the place. Also, any bar that advertises itself as a dive bar is not a dive bar.
This is not Swinging Dicks Saloon
It's the kind of place where the owner (Dick though he tells people to call him, Richard) is often the drunkest guy in the place, though sometimes he drinks in the bar down the street because the barmaids are hotter.
This is not Dick but he is a regular
It's the kind of place where the barmaids wear skimpy outfits even when they shouldn't.

It's the kind of place where the bartender never remembers what your drink of choice is but he believes he does.

Well, it's a word we made up.

Not so much famous musician stuff but down and dirty bar band stuff (bonus points if you set it in Swinging Dick's Saloon). We want dive bar gigs instead of Stadium tours. Stories about the kind of places people do meth in the parking lot (Because it's not rock and roll if no one's doing crank in the parking lot).
Places like this only not near as nice We want stories about the bands t…
It's podcast time. That's right 20 minutes of pulp fiction that skips the boring parts is back for your listening pleasure.
It's been a long time between seasons 3 and 4 but the wait is over. In fact, quit reading and go get the First episode. It's available on I-Tunes and Google Play too.
Look for great flash fiction from the likes of Tom Pitts, Beau Johnson, Bill Baber, Todd Morr and more plus a serialized version of Todd Morr's New Mexico Institute of Re-Animation (there is a reason we call it an Old School Radio Serial Podcast).
Pick up a copy and read along!
We're going to sneak in a mention of the #IndieCrimeCrawl starting July 15th and going all week. We will be participating by offering great deals all week, some of which will only be mentioned on the podcast. That's right tune in for a special podcast deal announcement.
