ay 2, 2013 - Los Angeles, CA -- Bob Forrest is back and he is ready to raise the roof off his new radio show aptly named "Bob's House". Forrest who, in the 1990's, was the raw-nerved front man for the Los Angeles rock band Thelonious Monster and, more recently, The Bicycle Thief is best known in his current role as the addiction counselor with the fedora hat who's featured on Dr. Drew's "Celebrity Rehab". Prior to "Bob's House", Forrest appeared in over 100 episodes of the raucous radio show "All Up In The Interweb" along with his Producer and Co-host, Nate Pottker and Dave Coelho which was broadcast from July, 2010 to August, 2012 on Los Angeles based, Internet only, radio station Indie 103.1. During his shows Forrest was known to speak his mind on controversial issues ranging from political scandals to America's dependency on prescription medication and everything in between.
Now, after taking a nearly ten month hiatus, Bob and Nate are back with an all new show and, as you might guess, Bob is not leaving anything to his audiences' imagination. "I love doing radio, I hope you like it, I hope you love what we're doing. I love music. It's a religion with me. People are Catholics and Jews and Buddhist and whatever, I'm a Bob Dylanist," said Forrest. "Bob's House" plays exclusively on David Lynch Foundation's Transcend Radio found online at Live365 http://www.live365.com/stations/transcend_radio. The show airs Sunday nights at 9:00PM and repeats throughout the week.

Forrest and Co-host, Pottker became friends nearly a decade ago and have
been working on something big ever since. Pottker describes the show as a
mash between music, opinionated talk and straightforward advice.
"I'm not as chatty as Bob, but we are both very passionate about music and have
differing opinions and tastes. We quickly bonded over our mutual obsession with
music. He asked me to help him with some projects he was working on and I
gradually became the official archivist for all things Bob," said Pottker. The show
will largely be comprised of musical selections, but will also draw on Forrests
expertise in recovery and personal transformation. Similar to the format used
to create "All Up In The Interweb", Forrest will also answer questions submitted
by listeners. "Bob is not one to hold back his thoughts on anything which always
makes for a fun listening experience. I've known him all this time and I still don't
know what he'll say next," concluded Pottker.
Forrest has been a strong supporter of The David Lynch Foundation for quite
sometime, so when he was asked to be a part of the David Lynch Foundation's
new station, Transcend Radio, it was very easy to say yes. The opportunities
internet radio provides are great for any artist. "We both believe strongly in the
power of music to impact or save a person"s life," said Pottker. Listeners
