I remember when I was a teenager and I had to tape episodes of Beverly Hills 90210 for my older sister, one of the first lines in the first episode was spoken by a voiceover and they said something like "they say your birthplace shouldn't be where you were born, but where you learned who you are - and this was my birthplace...". Using that line of logic, Seattle would be my ...

As part of a few days of early Aural Salvation stories that explain how my show rocketed up in (relative) popularity in a short time, I've explained its origin, the early awkwardness of having to fulfill interview duties from the guy whose time slot I overtook, how I captured attention with a nudity-laden alt-porn plug, and now I'll tell you about the most popular episode -- for ...

In 2004, I moved to Hollywood (from Orange County) with my buddy Nad. It was a pretty small and dingy place, only a window a/c unit, 1 bathroom, two small bedrooms and a tiny little kitchen.

This was a pretty regular spot for us, since there was a coffee shop in that mega-strip-mall called "The Mean Bean" that will feature in other stories to come. It was night-time, maybe 8-9pm. Rachel and I were sat at a booth near the kitchen/counter area. There was ...
