Tomorrow I shoot the first episode of a soon to be announced new TV series on site in Sturgis (not TMS or TMS related). So if you are out that way say hi. I’ll share more on this new series soon, I’m just waiting to hear when and how the network wants to announce it. But I’ll be out and about at a variety of festival settings next few months, and the shows will air early next year. Again, more when I get the green light to discuss. I haven’t been to Sturgis in 10 years. Last time was in ’07 to shoot a TV special for VH1 Classic at the time. I’ll be there tomorrow, then fly to N CA to host Sierra View Music Festival in Oakdale Saturday night. Home Sunday, back on radio on Monday.

Been a bit since an update here from me, sorry, been super slammed. A few things:
Had a great time hosting Loud In Lima this past weekend in Ohio. First time festival but with some tweaks it can be a great one if they continue. SO many festivals and live events these days, but good to see new ones come on and we shall see what happens with this one.
Had a blast hosting two radio shows from The Apollo during the private GnR show last Thursday. Had the honor to intro the band as well! It was awesome to be on that legendary stage and intro a legendary band! There are photos and video of it on my social media. I watched Guns rock for over 3 hours from 10 feet away all night and watched their soundcheck (they jammed James Brown!). Incredible night. GnR is now booked with gigs pretty much the rest of the year. So the real question is what do they do in 2018?
Sad news on Chester Bennington. I had him on my Volume show this past February. It will be rebroadcast in my new podcast this Thursday, along with Ben and Taylor of The Pretty Reckless. Free as usual PodcastOne.com and Itunes. Be sure to check out my Amazon store front: www.amazon.com/shop/eddietrunk . Hand picked stuff from me, then go through that page to buy. Please bookmark it and always start on my store, thanks!
Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum was on my show today. Huge fan, was a fun chat. Will be a podcast one day soon.
Be sure to listen daily on 106 Volume on SiriusXM live 2-4P ET, 9-11P ET (replay) and On Demand on the app. And follow on all social media (especially Twitter @EddieTrunk) for up to the second news. Thanks.
