Hosted a fun hour long SiriusXM Town Hall with Nickelback yesterday. Nickelback is one of those bands that are very polarizing. Many love them (they’ve sold over 50 million albums!), and then they have their haters for sure. I never understood the hate. I admit I was never a huge fan, always a kind of take it or leave it thing for me. Some good songs, but I had and have no strong feelings one way or the other. But the segment of hate for them always baffled me. Some resent their success I guess? But I can tell you having met them all for the first time yesterday they were great guys, fun, no ego, just a nice group of guys that have had mega success in rock. I enjoyed the conversation and you can hear it now On Demand and also replaying this weekend 8-10P ET on Volume. Their new album is out Friday for those that are fans. Tomorrow writer Curt Gooch calls in to talk Kiss and Angel. Thursday Foghat drummer Roger Earl and Glenn Danzig are my guests. It’s all LIVE 2-4P ET on 106, replay 9-11P ET, and On Demand on the SiriusXM app.
On the FM side welcome new station WZDB 95.9 Altoona PA. They join the Eddie Trunk Rocks affiliates airing Saturday’s 7-10P.

About to wrap up a great long trip here in Tulsa dating back to last weekend when I hosted Rocklahoma. Last night I introed Vince Neil and had a great time with him and his killer band at the Hard Rock Tulsa. One final thing on this trip to Tulsa and that’s to host Tom Keifer tonight at IDL Ballroom. The show is close to sold out. Tom hits the stage around 9. Should be a great time. I have seen Tom many times and his band is killer as well. Thanks to all here in Tulsa for the great support as always. Ever since I started coming here in 2007 the fans have been so cool to me. Extra special thanks to the Hard Rock Tulsa for the hospitality and letting me do my radio show from their facility. It’s a great place and a must visit if in this area. Thanks also to Doug Burgess, Tom Green and the staff at IDL for having me host these cool shows as well. Fly home to NJ tomorrow.
