Host Lee Joseph is a lifelong music fan, record collector, and sole force behind Dionysus Records, now in its' third decade. His love for music, records, and radio began before he can remember; somewhere there's an 8mm family film of Lee, not even a handful of digits old, carrying a 45. Over Under Sideways Down reflects his wide scope of musical tastes, spanning decades, and is billed as a variety of shows, not a variety show. Each show is themed; from week-to-week you'll hear solid blocks of exotica, r&b, soul, doo-wop, garage, instro/surf, freakbeat, psych, prog, hard rock, rockabilly, punk, power-pop and more including shows that explore record label discographies and regional/international scenes. Lee also features special guests; past guests include Jello Biafra, DJ Bonebrake, Keith Morris, Robert Drasnin (RIP), members of The Pandoras and visual artists Hudson Marquez and William Stout. Lee is also a club DJ; among his gigs is the monthly Desert Soul Club in Palm Springs with DJ partner Bobby California. When not DJing you can find Lee running his Reverberations Media PR company and playing bass with Joshua Tree's Jesika von Rabbit and occasionally performing with the Skip Heller Trio. Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, Lee currently splits his time between Burbank, and Joshua Tree, California.
MIRIAM LINNA is the wax maven at New York record label, Norton Records and publisher of Kicks Books, both endeavors which exist to celebrate the unsung heroes of rock n' roll music. Miriam co-founded Norton Records with her late husband, Billy Miller. The pair were inspired to discover and issue unknown music that they had written about in Kicks magazine. Miriam loves to hoard, play, and rave about records, and is particularly hopped up about the Doo-Wop sounds of New York City and the inevitable and much wished-for KINKS REUNION! She lives in the borough she calls home, Brooklyn USA
