Craft conversation, San Diego Style
High Octane Growler began in 2012 as an extension of the original Stone Beer segment, which Tommy and his colleagues originally developed with the Stone Brewing Co. in 2007 during the Hansen and Tommy morning show on FM 94/9 in San Diego.
The segment quickly became the talk of San Diego's craft beer and broadcast community, and was one of the first marriages of craft beer and conversational radio. The segment was later reintroduced as the Rock and Roll Happy Hour when Tommy moved to afternoons at FM 94/9 in 2010.
In the years since, Tommy has worked with Surfrider, Oregon Wild, ReWild Mission Bay, hosted mornings at 91X, served as president and co-founder of San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action, and ran a hard-fought campaign for San Diego City Council in 2018.
While the rebooted incarnation of High Octane Growler will shift toward the kind of political conversation no longer available on broadcast outlets, the classic High Octane Growler takes on music, culture, and current events will remain a staple, with a top-shelf assortment of guests and personalities.
New episodes and a new rollout are on the way of this "craft conversation" show. This isn't amateur hour, this is a fun, entertaining program built for the politically-minded. Dial in to hear Tommy in his natural habitat and follow High Octane Growler on your favorite podcast platform. Coming soon.
