"Taylor Locke", the host of the show, serves as the overall father figure to the entire Planet Rocke family. He runs the Velveteen Laboratory and looks after the fuzzy family, Trixie the Robot, and his sidekick Pterry P Pterydactal . He interviews a different musical guest on each episode of his space talk show. He has brought every character to Planet Rocke, giving them jobs and a loving home. He also is the front man of “The Roughs”, which is the talented house band that lives on Planet Rocke.
Taylor Locke, the "real-life guy", is an LA native guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer. He signed with Geffen Records at the age of 18, and recorded 3 albums with Rooney, the band that he co-founded in the 10th grade. After 10 years of international touring, multiple TV appearances, and a #1 single in Germany, he built the recording and video studio "The Velveteen Laboratory". During the finishing stages of his 3rd album with his new band, Taylor Locke & The Roughs, he began a on-going brainstorm with artist/writer/director/actor/renaissance bohemian Ericka Clevenger. They co-created the show "Planet Rocke", which Clevenger directs, and Locke hosts. Inspired by their love of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Wayne's World, the pre-reality show days of MTV, traditional talk shows, interview podcasts, and the visual style of 1990's television, they began working on a show that would become a Sitcom about a music talk show….from space!!!
