What’s it all about? Characters…
Great characters make life interesting, and John Rody certainly fits the bill… He’s funny, irreverant, and dare I say “goofy”? Hahaha – rock and roll attitude all the way, John Rody:

The John Rody Webcast, GOOD TIMES!

From Facebook: About John Rody:
I’m right over there in the corner next to the baking soda.

Real piece of work. Nice enough guy tho.



OLD HIPPIES in North Texas no doubt remember JOHN RODY from the long-running Rody and Labella Show, hosts of the morning drive-time radio show at KZEW-FM, back then affectionately referred to as “THE ZOO.” The seventies are long gone, and internet offerings now intercept a good portion of the radio market.

Rody, rolling with the flow, began a WebCast series in 2009 that offered up a weekly MUSICAL VARIETY SHOW designed to introduce new talent, new product, and his own brand of musical mayhem to the kids of his original listeners. If online viewer numbers are any indication, Rody’s younger followers dig him now just as much as their parents did, then. And if live audience numbers mean anything, Rody’s OLD HIPPIES still like to get out and enjoy a little craziness with their music and booze. (Only now, they tend to have more money and a bigger appetite.)

Over 200 episodes into his home-grown Fort Worth based Wednesday WebCast, Rody recently announced an addition to his online offerings: a Thursday version of The John Rody WebCast, LIVE from downtown Dallas.

Dallas’ own CITY TAVERN hosts the weekly Thursday WebCast from it’s central business district location at 1402 Main Street.

The John Rody WebCast format is part-music, part-interview, AND extremely interactive: the live audience, the show guests, and online viewers all take part in Rody’s unscripted adventures. Given the Tavern’s proximity to foot traffic on Main Street, Rody is well within range of his original broadcast location and those at the Tavern might be tempted to go along when he finally takes leave of his senses.
