Can a guy in his appartment get punk rock musicians round in his appartment, and entertain you? YES!
Feb 20, 2009
Searching around websites for interviews and the like, I came across an MP3 of Scott and Aaron from the band Reel Big Fish being interviewed by a guy who called himself DJ Rossstar. He announced in the first few minutes that he was doing the show from his apartment, which made me dubious to whether the show could be carried off. My scepticism was then kicked in the nuts and called a bitch, because the show entertained me from beginning to end. Since that day i have tried to listen as much as possible. Living in the UK makes it hard to be able to catch the show, but considering I work nights, I am usually up when the show is on. I'd like to call myself a fan. From his show i have heard of bands that i'd not known before, and go to know a lot about the different punk bands that fly in and out of his apartment.
I've listened to punk rock shows in the UK, but Ross's show is a bit different. Talking to 2 bands per show, his interview style is both professional but casual. Instead of a series of set questions, it seems like he is just hanging out, chatting with his guests, which just ends up being an interesting, entertaining and fun interview.
A final thought - Life is full of inconsistancies. Its fragile, one minuite you can be on top of the world, the next you can find yourself in the gutter. So in the jigsaw of life ladies and sirs, make sure you start with the corners first, then the outside pieces. Then you can the middle of it can sort out easily.
As children or young teens we almost all dreams of being famous one day but this were not the intentions of this young American teen.

In 2004 the 'DJ Rossstar Punk Rock Show' relocated to Ross's new apartment in Los Angeles, California streaming on Idobi Radio. In 2008 the 'DJ Rossstar Punk Rock Show' moved its broadcast to Stickam. … more
I have been a fan of DJ Rossstar's show for awhile. I love all the bands he puts on it and even him himself. He is like a normal guy that doesn't think much of himself but too me he's a pretty known guy whom i respect for his hard work with his show and all the other projects he has been working on. What I would change:I wouldn't change much since I like all the bands that come on his show. What might make it a better show is if he got more "bigger" … more

Airing from a small apartment in Los Angeles, California, every Wednesday and Thursday from 7-8pm (West Coast Time) through Stickam, DJ Rossstar has had over 500 artists pass through his 'studio' or live, interactive broadcasts. Larger names include Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Paramore, Plain White Ts, Yellowcard, Saosin, Boys Like Girls, Good Charlotte, Gym Class Heroes and the list goes on. Many of these bands that went on to hit it big did their first interviews on Rossstar's show.
