Show of the Day: Ron and Beth Martinez Going Away Party
Ron Martinez (pictured, right) has had his hand in lots of Orange County cookie jars. Many know him as the front man for punk band Final Conlfict, but the Buena Park native also shaped the area's musical landscape by turning thousands of kids onto good bands behind the counter of now-defunct Greene Records and as a booking agent at Chain Reaction. Recently, the Long Beach resident played bass in a punk band called 46 Short and booked acts local, national and worldwide (his roster includes the Stitches, the Casualties, D.O.A, Cock Sparrer, Channel 3, the Krum Bums, Lower Class Brats and the Voids).
