Introducing Lowdown Swag

We here at Lowdown HQ like to do campus radio talk shows differently. This is obvious through our unique Lowdown Extra bonus content available for download available on the blog. Now, we’re trying something different again.

Today, we’re officially launching Lowdown Swag. It’s our official line of clothing. Right now, we have five designs available for purchase as t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and other assorted merchandise. So take a look at the merchandise and keep checking back here for new releases. Continue reading

An Evening With Rich Christensen

When I interviewed Rich back on April 14th, I kept looking for the right word to describe him.  He would say something that would take me back a bit and I couldn’t think of the right word to describe it.  It was intense but that wasn’t the right word.  He wasn’t preachy, far from it. Although I’m not entirely sure my editing skill did him justice on that front.  The perfect word dawned on me as I edited the interview: Passionate. Continue reading

Lowdown Radio with Rich Christensen

On May 26th, we have a special episode of The Lowdown radio show. I interview Rich Chistensen. He is the creator of several of Speed Channel’s most popular shows including Pinks, Pinks All Out, Pass Time, and Drag Race High. For the whole show we talk about his new live drag racing show, ArmDrop Live, his work for Speed Channel, what he thinks about street racing, how much control he has over Pinks All Out and a short preview of the upcoming season.

We’ve Won An Award

Sorry for the random bit of self-indulgence but I’ve just won my second CHRW Volunteer of the Year award.  Unfortunately, The Lowdown radio show did not win for best talk show.  We were beat out for that by that TV Western show that they simulcast on radio.  But we still won the big award of the night so that other show’s hosts can stick it.

And congratulations to my usual sports partner in crime, Josh Sweetland, who picked up the award for top sports commentator.  He’s someone you’ll hear on big games for years to come.

Don’t forget, you can always listen to The Lowdown radio show at

Lowdown Music Show Play List

So we tried our hand at being a music show on Sunday.  If you were interested, here’s the songs we spun while acting like real DJ’s. A special thanks to those who called in to chat and make requests. Another shout out to our recurring guest Graham Page who chatted with us about soccer, motorsports and cars in the run up to 2:00 AM.  The songs listed in red are what I picked and the songs in turquoise are Jackie’s picks.
