Of his next broadcast of “The Freak Power Ticket” later this morning (Monday, August 31), producer / host Ted Coe writes:
“Today’s guest Randall Sena has appeared on my radio show in various guises, with his former band Le Petit Protest, during an airing of his occasional radio podcast, ‘The Dream Power Radio Hour,’ and for an interview and live in-studio version of the latter project.
I’ve been a huge fan of Randall’s work for nearly a decade now. Not only is he an accomplished musician, he’s also the co-owner and operator of Lompoc’s Certain Sparks Music, where he is a music teacher, recording engineer, mentor, and community leader. Sena has promoted and hosted shows off and on in the Lompoc area throughout that time as well.
During today’s program, I’m excited to be sharing tracks from Randall’s gorgeous (and overdue) debut LP, A Form of Prayer.
Randall Sena has been an integral part of our local music scene since what felt to me like one heyday in the mid-to-late 2000s, when acts like Ventura’s Franklin for Short, Santa Barbara’s Oso (which Sena recorded), and Le Petit Protest (which later evolved into Millions) formed a core of singalong-friendly indie-rock-bands that were equally stirring as they were oriented towards collaboration — and just downright likable. He has also worked with such talents as Emily Wryn, St. Anne’s Place, King Cole, and Dante Elephante.
I hope you can join me today to hear more from this self-described ‘musical maverick and autodidact from Santa Barbara’s North County.’”
“The Freak Power Ticket” airs on Mondays in the summer from 11am-1pm PDT.
