Go Radio
Go Radio
By Natasha Jordan-- Staff Writer, Pacific/Southwest

Go Radio is a busy group of guys, jumping from tour to tour to promote their first full length album, Lucky Street. I got a chance to talk to Jason Lancaster, who brings many of his talents to the band. Not only does he sing and play instruments, but he brings a lot to the song writing table. Read on to get to know a little more about Go Radio.

Natasha Jordan: Hello, I’m Natasha from Musiqtone, how are you?
Jason Lancaster: Hey, I’m Jason.  I’m good, how are you?

NJ: Pretty good, thanks for taking some time out to talk to me for a few minutes. From the looks of your tour schedule, you guys are a busy group. You’re on tour now, right?
JL: Yeah we are on tour with A Rocket to the Moon.

NJ: And after this tour is your first headlining tour right?
JL: Yeah, we finish up this tour, and we spend eight days at home and then hit the road again.

NJ: Where’s home for you guys?
JL: Tallahassee, Florida

NJ: You guys are doing Warped this summer, what are you looking forward to the most on this tour?
JL: A lot of the guys that we have already toured with are going out on Warped too, so it’s going to be great to see all of them again, and just hang out and play music.

NJ: Who are you looking forward to seeing play?
JL: There are so many great people playing Warped, it’s going to be great to see a lot of people. I love the shit out of Jacks Mannequin. I’m a huge piano rock guy, so I’m really excited to see them play.

NJ: What are some of your favorite songs to play on the road?
JL: It switches from night to night. It just depends on the crowd, but Singing with the King and Goodnight Moon are always crowd favorites, so those are always fun to play.

NJ: Your songs are filled with a lot of raw emotion, are there any songs that are hard to play on stage, emotionally?
JL: A lot of our songs are about emotional moments, so depending on the night, any song can trigger a painful memory. Forever my Father is hard one for me, because it’s about the loss of my father, so bringing that up every night can be hard.

NJ: When you write a song, do you have a plan that you follow, or are you a spark guy?
JL: Definitely a spark guy. Sometimes you can sit down and write a song in a sitting, sometimes you are hit with a melody, or a bridge, but it’s definitely a spark.

NJ: You guys spend a lot of time on the road, is there time for some practical jokes on tour?
JL: Definitely, but not until the end of the tour, like the last day, because sometimes you can go too far, and accidentally piss someone off, so you wait until the last day just in case.

NJ: That’s good logic! What’s the best prank that has ever been played on you guys?
JL: We’ve gotten all the basics, the confetti, and silly string, but this one time, there were a bunch of guys that came out during our set and sat between the stage and the crowd barrier, and just sat there and read books, like there wasn’t a concert going on. It was really funny.

NJ: That’s awesome, thank you for taking the time to talk to me today. We can’t wait to see you guys on tour soon!
JL: Thanks have a nice day.
