If you drive down Myers Street in Burbank, you might not guess there’s a live radio show being broadcast out of a garage, but today’s technology makes this possible. And for the members of the Australian rock band Sunset Riot, the “Twin Talk” radio show was the first stop on their three-month American tour.
Sunset Riot’s frontman, Del Rio, said it made sense to kick off the band’s U.S. tour on “Twin Talk” because the show had promoted its music and upcoming tour for months, which helped lead to 25 bookings out of the 40 the band hopes to secure.
“Our phone hasn’t stopped ringing since we’ve been here. It worked out perfectly to launch here because “Twin Talk” has been playing our songs and it seemed really fun. It’s kind of like a ‘Wayne’s World’ thing to do,” Rio said.
Twin Talk is an online talk radio show produced by twin brothers Jose and Angel Hernandez, who say they are nothing alike and believe their banter about current events and interviews with a variety of guests will keep listeners tuned in.
