duckman posterIf you are reading the headline, then you know that it’s absolutely true that my old radio show from my days at Bridgewater State University is coming back for one night only. That is not a mistake because every year, the college holds it’s annual Alumni Takeover during the school’s Homecoming weekend which allows some old alums to come back and host a show for an hour or so. For the last three years, I have had some fun wracking my brain to come up with a playlist that I thought you would enjoy as well, but this year it’s going to change. I think every year, I am going to pick a theme and I am just going to run with it. This year, I have something special planned out for you guys, but you’ll have to wait and just wonder exactly what Pedal To The Metal Fest is all about. I do not have the exact day and time I am going to be on, but you should know that Alumni Takeover weekend is October 12TH and 13TH. Stay tuned here because as soon as I find out what time I’ll be on, I will let you guys know here and on the Facebook page.

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.

pedalIn December of 2012, I had my very last radio show at Bridgewater State University’s WBIM 91.5 FM station and it was sad because I didn’t know what I was going to do with my future. For two years, I ran the show Pedal To The Metal where I played everything from 80’s Hair Metal to today’s metal and it was a lot of fun. Well, every year for homecoming the radio station hosts an Alumni Takeover where various alumni from over the years come back to rock out for one weekend and your’s truly is one of them. So, for one hour only, I am putting the metal back in the M of WBIM as I take over from 2PM eastern time until 3PM Eastern Time. If you want to listen into the show because maybe you don’t live anywhere near Bridgewater, Massachusetts, you can do so by clicking here. Listen to all of the shows starting at 8AM, but tune into mine especially from 2PM ET until 3PM ET. I may also be doing a special giveaway of the digital copy of Paranormal Activity since the brand new Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is out in theaters right now. You’ll have to do two things in order to find out with one of them being to listen in and the other to follow me on Twitter @ERaticWanderer. I hope that you guys will be listening in later today┬áto the show to hear some cool metal and get a cool prize (well, you’ll find that out later today).
