Have you ever gotten in trouble with the FCC?
All Ages: We
learned the hardway that you can't talk about "putting things
things." We're lucky to be where we are at so we can learn
without getting our asses kicked too hard by "The Man."
When will you guys have to give up the show?
All Ages: When
we graduate. Then we'll sell it.
is the best thing about doing All Ages Radio?
All Ages: Getting
to hang with bands we have looked up to, playing good music on
the radio, full control over 4 hours of the airwaves, and chicks!
Who are some of your favorite guests youve ever had on the
All Ages: Rise
Against..friends of ours, Haymarket Riot...great f***king band,
Lawrence Arms...always drunk, Preacher Gone to Texas...the next
and Jinxpack...Kevin and Gordon clones.
Have you ever had any guests that you didnt really care
for on the show?
All Ages: Of
course...but we don't talk shit. We like to give everyone the
to do their thing because we didn't have to work half as hard
to get this
show as bands do for recognition.

biggest turnaround after they played the show. Not a week goes
Is there a single band that has had more requests than any other?

classics get constant requests (Rancid, NOFX, AFI, Ramones) but
more loyal fans tend to favor the up-and-comers.
Do any labels ever get annoying about you guys playing their releases?
All Ages: No
labels in general, but someone needs to tell Redline when to back
the f**k off!
What are some labels that have been cool to deal with through
All Ages: Fat
Wreck Chords and Victory treat us like kings, same with Sinister
and Thick. It's so awesome how much these labels appreciate what
we are doing, and it's equally as cool to us as fans of the music
who get sent crates and crates of CDs. Without the labels and
distribution like Redline, we would be very dry and itchy. We
owe it all to the labels.

All Ages: Taking
Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends, Atreyu - Suicide Notes and
Butterfly Kisses, Transplants - Transplants, the used - the used,
Stereotyperider - Same Chords, Same Songs, Same 6 Strings, The
Lawrence Arms - Apathy and Exhaustion, Preacher Gone to Texas
- Choice Vs Chance, just to name a few, if you want a more complete
list, listen Friday nights at

see the band in
