The Goober Timeline!

Deep in the suburbs of Vancouver, Canada, Trevor is...well, born! His earliest memory comes from the age of 2, singing and dancing an impromptu performance of "Singin' in the Rain" to a grocery store full of strangers (a moment Trevor's mother is devastated to have not caught on tape). In a context no one is aware of, he dawns himself "Trevor Goober".

Thanks to the tastes of both sides of his family, Trevor grows up with a mad passion for music. His CD and cassette collection ranges from The Beatles and Frank Sinatra to "Weird Al" Yankovic and The Muppets. After watching the film That Thing You Do!, he decides his calling is to be a 1960's rockstar. He takes on his first acting role in a stage production of Peter Pan, as Lost Boy #47 (or something).

Trevor acquires a handheld camera and starts regularly pumping out "quality" short films. Some characters begin recurring in their very own segments, such as "Trevor's Mom" and Grampa Gramps (who still make appearances on the radio show to this very day). His elementary school holds an assembly to watch these short films and as a crowd of fellow fourth graders scream out in laughter, the idea of being a full-time entertainer clicks in Trevor's (little) head.

While volunteering as a camp counsellor, Trevor uses his character voices to entertain the kids at a theatre arts camp - and they don't seem to hate it! On his commutes from school to musical theatre rehearsals to his two homes, the dial turns to SiriusXM's Kids Place Live. He instantly falls in love with the format, idea and history of radio, and begins using his cassette recorder to host his own show for an audience of... himself!

The rise of the podcast era presents Trevor with the ability to broadcast a live online radio show, and he promptly combines all previously mentioned elements to create a weird little variety show for kids just like him. Goober Kids Radio is born! It broadcasts weekly for a full year, becoming the podcast platform's most popular program in the Children's category in the process.

As the show reaches 100,000 all-time downloads, a radio company takes notice and acquires GKR. With new equipment, professional guidance and young fans across the globe, the show becomes The Playhouse with Trevor - leading Trevor to interviews at concerts, film festivals and Disney sitcom tapings. He meets his hero "Weird Al" Yankovic, The Wiggles, The Aquabats, creators of Phineas and Ferb Dan & Swampy, Imagination Movers, The Okee Dokee Brothers, Chris Ballew from The Presidents of the United States of America and dozens of others all in one year. He is not tired.

Living the dream, The Playhouse's continued success means missing more than a few school classes to go home and be on the air. Trevor interviews four nominated artists in a special GRAMMYs episode. Using his That Thing You Do-fueled multi-instrumentalist skills, he starts writing and producing funny tunes for the show and releases them as an album. On top of this, he starts hosting an additional podcast in partnership with Scholastic Canada, where he chats with authors like Dav Pilkey, Jeff Kinney and Jarrett J. Krosoczka, who says that Trevor will "rule the world someday". Many listeners shiver at this statement.

After three years straight of quite literally growing up on the air, Trevor takes a break from radio to perform his aforementioned funny tunes at family festivals and film silly YouTube sketches. His "reputation" leads him to a major children's television network, where he acts in a very exciting pilot that ends up going absolutely nowhere and upsets many focus groups (one can assume).

As his teenage years "mature" him, Trevor shifts his focus from the kids' world to comedy and the show becomes Seriously Though with Trevor Walls. He meets actors, comedians and musicians - including Dylan Gardner, Lisa Schwartz, Harrison Houde, Ivan Decker and Koo Koo Kanga Roo (who also graciously write and sing the theme song).

While acting in videos and series for YAP TV, the channel accidentally goes viral (oops!) and Trevor gains a small fanbase for his work which accumulates over 100 million views. As a joke, he starts a campaign to get himself in Disney Channel's Descendants 3. Hundreds of fans show their support, including Descendants star Dove Cameron. One month later, he finds himself on set for a very, very, very, very, very small and uncredited cameo role.

Furthering his career in comedy and acting, Trevor moves to Toronto, Canada to train in improv and sketch-writing at The Second City. Seriously Though continues as Trevor's stand-up and comedy music routines bring him to historic venues around Toronto, including opening for headliners at the Just For Laughs festival. He shakes hands with many of his comedic inspirations such as Bo Burnham, Chris Fleming and Randy Feltface. His favourite film of the year is Paddington 2.

Trevor takes another hiatus from radio hosting to embark on a teeny tiny Canada tour, taking his hour of comedy music to sold-out theaters and cabarets. He writes, directs and stars in a comedy sketch series for kids called Bazerk! on YAP TV. He crosses paths with his hero "Weird Al" Yankovic once again, who wishes him luck on his endeavours. Soon after, Trevor poses for a Hollywood photoshoot with Al in The New York Times.

After a few years of entertaining theaters and bars full of rowdy adults, a challenging year (to say the least) finds Trevor going back to his kindie roots. With one of his best friends Emma, he forms a duo called The Zing Zangs and starts writing folk-pop tunes for all ages. To their surprise, legendary music producer Dean Jones agrees to produce their debut album and much of the year is spent writing and recording songs. A certain "radio bug" itches at Trevor's mind.

Like a warm serving of pancakes on a cold morning, the universe presents Trevor with an email from a non-profit radio syndication company seeking more children's content AND a recently-expired Playhouse ownership contract. In 2021, The Playhouse with Trevor returns, live from Trevor's childhood hometown, to entertain kids and their families on FM radio stations across the United States and Canada. He spends one season back on the air - reading listeners' letters, interviewing artists like Laurie Berkner, and reuniting with old pals like Grampa Gramps who had been tucked away for a few years - before heading off to Los Angeles to complete his studies in acting.

Oh, hey! You made it! Present tense! Now "all grown up" and living in Los Angeles, California, recording many silly songs and acting on stage and screen, Trevor decides that radio is something he just can't leave behind. He loves talking to fellow artists and asserting his wackiness onto the airwaves. With distribution by PRX, Trevor is combining ALL of these interests and career paths (that you've so kindly read about) to create his finest weekly hour of syndicated radio yet - The Goober Hour. Talk about full circle! This show is for listeners of all ages. Really, it's for anyone. Mixing kindie songs with niche oldies, new characters with classics, interviews with artists of all types - this is Trevor's magnum opus. This long-running program makes a return in its final form, The Goober Hour, on April 23, 2022. Whether you started following yesterday or you've known him since he performed "Singin' in the Rain" in that grocery store, thank you for listening.
