Live show tonight 11P ET – 2A with Chris Jericho and Biff Byford calling in from the UK live. Also more chances to win tickets to the 30th party on 10/23. As a matter of fact we just confirmed another 50 winners if you entered here on the site. If you didn’t enter and will be in NYC and want to come just click the banner on the home page. We will keep pulling winners for the next few weeks so don’t fear if you weren’t confirmed yet. All radio stations besides Q104 get a brand new all 70’s special this weekend. Please check the station list on my site to see all the places and ways you can hear this special. I know the last hour didn’t air of this special in NYC last week, so if you guys want to hear it all the affiliates have the proper version for this weekend. Check out their streams to hear as well at respective dates and times listed here on this site under On The Air. Live also this Monday 6P ET on SiriusXM 39 with Mark Tremonti & Myles Kennedy in studio.
Going to be recording an interview with Ted Nugent later tonight. It will air in a future recorded show. Been a long time since I spoke with Ted, look forward to it. Even if I don’t agree with everything some people say, I love and respect people who aren’t afraid to say how they feel, and Ted certainly fits that category. But I most want to discuss what is overlooked these days with Ted, his MUSIC. He’s also featured in my new book by the way!
Very close to finally launching an all new merch store here on this site. Some cool T’s, hats and more will finally be made available here just in time for the holidays. Hope you like the stuff and appreciate your support. Coming very soon as I just approved all the designs for the merch company. Pre orders will be taken soon.
Waiting to hear from VH1 about the next moves for TMS. They are deciding now when and where we will do them likely in the Fall. More when I know.
Was just sent an advance of my new book. After all the work it’s awesome to finally hold it and see the finished product. Like the 1st book my publisher did an amazing job with the quality and layout. It’s an amazing value at a retail list of $19.99 with Amazon now taking pre orders way below that. If you liked book one this will be the perfect companion as it is a direct sequel. Can’t wait for the NYC launch 9/24 at the Hard Rock and the signing tour. All dates on the home page with more TBA.
Football is here! Nothing better than settling in for the games. Season goes by so quick, seemed like forever to start up the games again. Psyched for this Sunday, GO GIANTS!
Amen to that!!!
Sweaty Teddy is so boring and predictable at this point, both his verbal schtick and his setlist, I don’t have a clue why anyone would even bother listening to him or seeing him as a headline act anymore. His last great album was Weekend Warriors (1978), although State of Shock (1979) was a solid album. His show headlining over Foreigner and Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush at the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh in summer 1977 on the Cat Scratch Fever tour is still one of the best performances I’ve seen a rock band put on, and his show on the State of Shock tour in 1979 at the same venue was not far behind. However, by the time I saw him on the Scream Dream tour in early fall 1980 at the Civic Areana again and then again in summer 1984 at the Stanley Theater, his performances, although still energetic, were just OK. The verbal schtick, even without any of his conservative politics and incessant immigrant-bashing, had worn quite thin by that point. Anyway, he’s relegated to headlining smaller venues or performing in special guest slots opening for bigger bands in many places outside the upper Midwest, and given the quality of his songs since (and including) the Scream Dream album, that seems about right to me.
