7/29: CHEAP TRICK, HEADED TO S FL, COREY TAYLOR PODCAST THIS WEEK

7/9: BENATAR/GIRALDO PODCAST, DENVER AREA APPEARANCE & RUSH THIS WEEKEND, TMS MARATHON, MORE

One of the reasons I decided to start a podcast exactly a year ago was to have a platform for artists I like and respect that are a bit outside the world of music I usually deal with on my radio and TV shows. Prior to That Metal Show I was a host on VH1 […]
