pedal-2016-promoLast night was Alumni Takeover Weekend over at Bridgewater State University’s radio station WBIM 91.5FM. The reason it’s special and why I did a show is because that is my Alma Mater and I was a DJ at the radio station where I hosted the show Pedal To The Metal. It’s a tradition that has been going on for some time at the school during Homecoming weekend where alumni of the station will come and take over the station for a weekend. It’s an awesome tradition that I wish was more than just one weekend a year because it’s so nice to run into some familiar faces and hear some stories from some of the guys that came before you. I want to go ahead and thank John Coombs for putting this together once again and I hope he feels better, it wasn’t the same without him there. I also want to thank the school for allowing us to do this and the current staff at WBIM for allowing us to come and takeover the station from them. Here is my playlist from that featured a special Black Sabbath medley (of sorts).

1. Inside The Fire by Disturbed

2. The Threat Is Real by Megadeth

3. Square Hammer by Ghost

4. Room 24 by Volbeat

5. One Of Us Is The Killer by The Dillinger Escape Plan

6. Turn Off The Radio by A Day To Remember

7. Babylon’s Burning by W.A.S.P.

8. Brotherhood Of Man by Motorhead

9. On With The Show by Motley Crue

10. Children Of The Grave (Vocalist Medley) by Black Sabbath*

11. Sail Away by Deep Purple

12. Metal Gods by Judas Priest

* Vocalist Medley featured Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Martin, and Ronnie James Dio on the same track.

pedalToday at 2PM ET, I went on the air for the very first time since 2012 to rock out with all the alumni of Bridgewater State University for the alumni takeover at WBIM 91.5FM. It was so much fun running into some familiar faces, meeting some new faces, and past graduates from all different years. Not to mention that playing the music I loved was also a big part of the excitement for the day. We dedicated the show to a past alumnus of the school and station who passed away recently named Dan Boutchie (class of 1997). It was a lot of fun and I really hope to do this again next year and I also want to thank the WBIM Alumni Association, WBIM and it’s current staff for allowing me to do so and for being so courteous as well. Here is today’s playlist:

  1. Revolution Is My Name by Pantera
  2. Bottled Up by Korn
  3. Speed Of Light by Iron Maiden (Mandatory Maiden)
  4. Electricity by Motorhead
  5. From The Pinnacle To The Pit by Ghost
  6. Back To Hell by Twiztid
  7. Superhero by Faith No More
  8. Cast The First Stone by Slayer
  9. The Devil Beneath My Feet by Marilyn Manson
  10. Abigail by King Diamond
  11. Fantasy by Steel Panther
  12. Rock N Roll Rebel by Ozzy Osbourne
