he acclaimed hard rock/heavy metal talk show, hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine invites American rock legend Ted Nugent to take center stage with an in-depth interview discussing Ted’s influences, musical history, and how he avoided the usual pitfalls of the music industry all these years.
