Hosts: Buffond & Macho Nacho

First Friday of the month

Hey guys, it’s your best friend Buffond, coming at you awkweirdly with me and Macho Nacho’s show, AwkWeird! A radio show where we talk about anything random and try to be funny. Tune in and listen at KRSM.

Macho Nacho is your average Minnesotan who loves conspiracy theories and the Beatles. In her spare time, you can find a wild Macho Nacho lying in the grass and plotting world domination.

Buffond: This is your captain speaking, welcome aboard the crazy express! To your left you will see Buffond pick up the guitar at age 6. Age 6 was the age she started many things like volleyball, guitar, and other things. To your right you will see that she was born in Vermont and at age 1 she moved to Minnesota. For most of her life she lived in Burnsville. When she was 8 she finally moved to Minneapolis. And in front of you, you will see the girl you see today, quirky and crazy, and she will show you through it all as she goes.
