Have you been asking yourself where’s Geno, what the hell happened to Michellini? I want to Bang the Drum! I need some real funnies. Well folks, Los Angeles radio legend Geno Michellini is alive and well, and on the internet. Geno Michellini's Turntable Hits broadcasts every single Friday, on the Flying Eye Radio Network playing every color in the musical rainbow. There was a time when the turntable was king and many of the real musical gems were in the deep recesses of those albums that spun on the platter, and those gems could be heard on stations like KMEL, KOME and KFOG in the San Francisco bay area. It is what FM radio once was, and will never be again. It is the music you turned on the black light and turned up the volume. You say you want to Bang the Drum! Have no fear Geno is here. What better way to end your week?!?!
If you listen to the music you get the feeling Geno takes you on a journey, and guides you through the moods and feelings that each and every song or set of songs can evoke. Did I mention you can start every weekend festivity by Banging The Drum, and the Flying Eye Funnies. Real funnies, the way they should be heard, uncensored, just like Geno. After 15 years at L.A. stalwart KLOS he was unceremoniously dismissed when caught up in a scandal that involved ferrets and other small animals. After 5 long years in a tree house with his loyal monkey Harry Geno has returned to the airwaves via the ever expanding Flying Eye Radio Network. Several gallons of tequila left Geno pretty much helpless and he agreed to come back, not really knowing what he was getting himself into. Now, he is back with a vengeance.
