Hope everyone had a great holiday season! Back into the swing of things so here are a few updates:
This site will be completely relaunched any day now and be under new management. Really excited about some of the new ideas of the table to make this site better than ever. All the features you love like news, polls, Trunk Report and more remain unchanged. But a bunch of new stuff coming and many improvements. Look for that launching at any minute and growing with new features as we progress. I also hope to get more active with FB time permitting, and thanks to all who sent me past 100K followers on Twitter.
Live radio shows return this Friday on Q104.3 and Monday on SiriusXM. For the Q104/FM show this will be the 30th year that show has existed! Hope to do something special. For 25th anniversary Priest played!
I am waiting on VH1 Classic as to when we will do more episodes of That Metal Show. These decisions are 100% up to them! Hope to know what’s next by the end of Jan the latest. I of course want to do more shows, but the newtork controls the plan and schedule completely. For now enjoy the many replays and set those DVRs to catch them all.
I’ll be in Boston at the NE Motorcycle show at World Trade Center 1/12 & 13 at the Sickboy booth. ‘ll be selling and signing my book as well. Exact times I’m at the booth each day TBA. I’ll also be hosting the red carpet for the Dee Snider roast in Annaheim CA Jan 24th (seen live in AXS TV) and appearing at the Samson/Zoom booth at NAMM 1/25 & 26. Hope to see you for these first appearances of 2013. More to come including R&R Fantasy Camp in Vegas and Monsters Of Rock Cruise out of Ft Lauderdale this March!
Happy New Year! More soon, have a great 2013
Hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a very happy healthy new year. Outside of a quick run to Vegas to watch some football this weekend I’m around and spending time with the family and enjoying this great time of year. Don’t forget if you missed the first annual Holiday RUSH special with Alex Lifeson it airs on all affiliates and online outlets this weekend. Just check the list under Broadcasts / Syndication on this site. This Friday on Q104 will be the Year In Review special where we look back on all the hard rock and metal from 2012. Don’t miss this show and support some great new music from your favorite artists you may not have caught first time around.
Hope you are enjoying the TMS replays on VH1 Classic. MANY replays if you set those DVRs all week. I’ll know the schedule on new shows when I meet with VH1 in the new year.
Live SiriusXM shows resume first Monday of 2013.
Yes you can still order signed copies of my book. Order link under Headlines on home page.
Happy New Year everyone!
Thanks to all for the amazing feedback on my Q104 show last night and the first ever Holiday RUSH Special! Was awesome to celebrate an entire show of the music of Rush and even cooler to have Alex Lifeson call in and be part of it. We talked R&R Hall (they are very aware how vocal I was for years about it. Alex said I’m probably more relieved then they are!), retirement (not anything soon, just slowing down touring after 2014 or so), 5.1 reissues, and much much more. Can’t thank Alex enough for taking time from the holidays to be a part of the show. The guys in Rush have always been super cool with me. Just really great people. Alex & Geddy were very early guests in the history of TMS when nobody even knew what it was. Just really grateful to have support and respect from them for my shows. I’ve decided Holiday RUSH will be an annual special, so much great music and conversation. Also thanks to Mike Portnoy for coming in to guest co-host and bringing in some true rare gems. Response has been phenomenal and everyone asking how to hear again. Just check the station list on this site under Broadcasts, Syndication. All those stations and their streams air Holiday RUSH next weekend at the dates and times listed. So that’s how to hear it again many times, places and ways all free. Those stations THIS weekend are airing the KISSmas show with Peter Criss, so hit them up THIS weekend to hear that. Have a good weekend all! Playlists for all shows up now in Playlists section on this site.
THIS FRIDAY, I’m excited to announce an all new special for the first time: “The Holiday RUSH with Eddie Trunk”. I’ll be dedicating my entire three hour radio show to nothing but the music of Rush! And as I”m sure you know when it comes to me, it will not be the same old two or three songs you always hear on the radio! Making this show even more special will be an all new interview with Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, who will check in during the broadcast. Join me as we celebrate the band FINALLY getting into the R&R Hall Of Fame on 12/21/12! Nothing but Rush music, talk, giveaways and more. Don’t miss the first ever Holiday Rush, LIVE this Friday night on Q104.3 New York City starting at 11PM ET. Those outside the NYC listening area can hear the show live on the stations stream at www.q1043.com or by using the free iheartradio app and dialing up Q104.3 under New York, Classic Rock. This show airs on all broadcast and online affiliates at it’s usual day and time the following weekend. That list can be found here: https://eddietrunk.com//index.cfm/pk/content/pid/400510
Huge thanks to Peter Criss for coming into the studio and hanging for over two hours last night on my Q104/syndicated show. Peter was happy and healthy and sharing so many amazing stories about his life in and out of Kiss. We also gave away copies of his great new book. Also played all Kiss music as we celebrated the 22nd annual Merry KISSmas. Really had a blast and the response to Peter being so open about so many things has been phenomenal. I’m also getting the usual tons of requests about how to hear it again. Like all FM radio shows what I do live on Friday nights on Q104 NYC replays on all affiliate stations the following weekend. So next weekend all stations and online outlets that air my show will be broadcasting what aired last night. You can also tune into these stations streams at the day and time listed to hear if they are outside your area. It’s all 100% free. So many places and ways to hear this show again including WAAF Boston next Sunday starting at 7P. All outlets listed on this site under Broadcasts/Syndication.
Thanks to Peter for his visit! See you for our final live show of 2012 on SiriusXM Monday starting at 6P ET channel 39.
Also if you ordered signed books from me for the holidays and have not yet received them I am awaiting more stock. I’ll sign and ship orders that arrived last week by Wed and they should make it to you by Christmas. Order info is on the home page under Headlines. Book 2 is done, and coming later next year!
I do not have news yet on the next season of TMS. After the holidays VH1 will let me know the plan and I’ll share then. Thanks
Please follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk for up to the second news, photos and more.
Sincere thoughts and prayers for the victims of the CT school shootings. It is evil beyond words and as a parent with two kids in elementary school myself I can not comprehend what the families of the kids and faculty are dealing with.
I know many questioned if I would do my annual KISSmas radio special this year considering how 2 of the bands founding members continue to treat me like an enemy for 1 opinion out of 30 years of support. But doing this show so many count on every year was never in question. It was just a question on how I would do it this year and when. But I know it means a lot to many to have this celebration of the bands music every year, and most Kiss fans are huge fans of mine and support what I do even if the band themselves don’t. For me it was always about the music first and foremost when it comes to the bands I love, and I’m not going to penalize my fans and Kiss fans just because Simmons & Stanley got some bad information and refuse to communicate. As usual my doors are open to ALL Kiss members past and present. Tonight Peter Criss joins me to discuss his book. I will also play nothing but Kiss music in the 3 hour show making this the KISSmas show for this year. This works best since it would be a bit much on the Kiss side to have an original member in studio tonight, then 3 hours of their music next week. So tonight is the Original Merry KISSmas show year 22. While Peter is there we will focus on the original bands music that he was part of. If/when Peter leaves before the show ends, we will get into other eras and take requests. Its the best way to accomplish the special this year and also give Peter as much time as he wants. There is much to discuss with him for sure. I will also have signed copies of Peter’s book to give away tonight. So join me at 11P ET tonight over the air in the NYC area on Q104.3 FM, or streaming free at www.q1043.com or via the iheartradio free app (just hit Q104.3 NYC, Classic Rock). Remember this show also airs on all affiliates next weekend. Thank you all for the support and Merry KISSmas 2012 to my fellow Kiss fans and supporters.
