7/3: HAPPY 4TH, LATEST UPDATE.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July holiday weekend. My FM radio show this weekend celebrates the 4th with an all new all American hard rock and metal special. Might not seem like a big deal as far as a radio special but think about how many bands I play on a regular basis that excludes. So it opens some time for other artists maybe not played as often too. It is on Q104.3 11P ET as usual and all stations that run my show each and every week usual day and time. Full list under Live & On The Air.
Excited to welcome back WAAF/Boston which starts airing the show a week from Friday from 11P-2A. I’ll be in Boston with Don & Jim at The Wilbur 8/2.
Judas Priest are doing a signing this Tuesday to celebrate the release of their new album at The Hard Rock in Times Sq. Starts at 6:30 and you must purchase the new album from FYE at The Hard Rock to get it signed. It will be Rob, Richie and Glenn and only copies of new album will be signed.
SO much great new music out there. Buy it, support it, listen for it on my shows. Stuff I am listening to now includes Slash, Overkill, Mastodon, Fozzy, Priest, Accept, Tesla, Night Ranger and much more. Great time for new music so check it out.
My debut podcast launches 7/10 via Podcast One. Should have a link to subscribe very soon. www.podcastone.com will also post and you can listen there. More details on guests soon. I will also be answering email from you guys on the podcast. Send them to me via Contact Us on this site and put “Podcast Question” in the subject.
Appreciate everyone asking about new episodes of TMS however when we do them is 100% up to VH1. Right now the latest is not until early next year unfortunately. I have no control over this at all and also wish we did more per year. For now enjoy the replays and set your DVR to catch them all. They run constantly from all seasons. Thanks.
I also don’t understand why VH1 has budget problems enough that it can’t do more TMS shows/seasons. Especially if they don’t have to fly out the boys and put them up for a week to California. Course I have to admit, I have not seen the books, but can’t the show get more sponsor money to help fund the show? Wouldn’t that be the producers’s job? Just seems to me there should be a solution to this problem. The demand is CERTAINLY there! Ok fellow TMS fans lets blow up social media to VH1 Classic. Blow up there FB and twitter feed!
As far as future guests, I’d love to see Michi and Kai Hansen from Unisonic (former Helloween) be on the show. If you can showcase Anvil, you can showcase former Helloween members from their classic era. They had several hits in the US in the late 80s.
Dan Spitz too!
Just so you all know. I just tweeted VH1C and wrote on their FB timeline about getting more TMS shows. I encourage all TMS fans to do the same, and let us do it REGULARLY! If we all tweet and write on their FB page twice, three times a week, minimum, MAYBE we’ll get some responses from them.
You are right there is lots of good music coming out. I know people often hate his political views but I look forward to Ted Nugent’s new album coming out tomorrow.
I have heard Alice Cooper has been blowing Motley Crue off the stage the last few nights. No big surprise there, Cooper should still be playing arenas as a headliner.
