The Canadian Geeks have come up with yet another ridiculous idea. It seems they continue to come up with ridiculous ways of selecting music to enjoy on the show.
In a spin off of the "six degrees of Kevin Bacon" , episode #110 delivers SIX DEGREES OF HEAVY METAL!
Wallygator came up with the idea early one morning. That lead to an expletive filled phone call as he attempted to explain the intricacies of how the episode would unfold. The planning for this episode would have made for very entertaining show in of itself.
The concept is really simple. The geeks used Wally's Ipod to randomly select the starting song. The metal gods randomly selected "Mean Streak" from Y&T! Thanks goodness it didn't select something from Wallygator's secret Banarama collection.
From there each geek had to select a song that somehow connected to Y&T's Mean Streak. From there Wallygator had to connect the Meister's selection and the Meister had to connect Wallygator's. The process continues until there were 12 songs all interconnected. They kept their "connections" a secret and were revealed during the recording.
How does UFO connect to Kiss's Crazy Nights? You will soon find out right here.
Back to back Riot Radio anyone? As another week of isolation, social distancing and cancelled concerts at least we have the CGCM Podcast.
Wallygator takes the DJ seat for an hour's worth of hard hitting rock and metal. That is until he dumps a set of syrupy rock ballads to simply annoy his co-host. Welcome to episode #109 of the CGCM Podcast and volume 23 of the Riot Radio series.
During this episode Wallygator reveals that he had no plan, theme or message to this week's show. Looking at the tracklist however, we are not so sure that he isnt trying to tell us something.
Well, here we are again for the 22nd Riot Radio. This time Meister guides you, our valued listener through a 12-pack of some new groovers in his ears of late. Set up as double shots, that's six bands at two songs each for a rippin' episode of new tunes that Meister says "you all need to hear"!
Here is CGCM PODCAST EP#108-Riot Radio Vol 22 (Meister).
If this happens to represent your first Riot Radio, welcome! The Riot Radio concept: Every other week CGCM brings you a podcast episode with less talk and more rock. Terrestrial radio has become homogenized. Satellite radio falling to the same fate. Remember the days when radio played bands like Helix and AC/DC etc and not just the hits, but deep cuts and new music? How about a brand new band? One that you’ve never heard before, perhaps even a foreign band? Miss those days? Well, CGCM is bringing them back! That’s what our Riot Radio is all about! The co-hosts take turns each week in playing solo DJ to spin some great Hard Rock/Metal music that you may be unfamiliar with and we feel needs to be showcased. You know…how terrestrial and satellite radio SHOULD be!
This round it’s Rich “The Meister” Dillon in the hot seat for a whole host of tunes!
With the Covid-19 Lockdown still in full effect, the Canadian Geeks have decided to look back at a year full of fun and frivolity. Yes they are referring to 1985 and the halfway point of what is widely referred to as the Decade if Decadence.
Hard rock and heavy metal had exploded into the mainstream. The “kids” were buying the music, growing their hair and slipping on their spandex. MTV and the Radio charts were clamoring to share the newest Def Leppards and Ratts and WASPs. It was a wonderful time to be getting into rock music.
This week’s episode has the Geeks resuming their big battle of the Playlists. If this is your first Battle episode, the concept is simple. You will hear not one but two “6” song playlists in their entirety. All of the music played within was all released in the year 1985. After listening to BOTH lists it is up to you to decide which 1985 Playlist is the BEST!” There is no right or wrong, simply which playlist you felt kicked ass!
The fun part is, you don’t know going in which playlist belongs to the Meister and which one is Wallygator’s. The vote is completely blind. Just like the Meister’s mother always warned him would happen if he didn’t stop.....
Anyways, to record your vote we have made it super simple. Head over to our Facebook page, look for this exact episode and a “pole” link is all set up and ready for you to enter in your vote.
The boys have been battling out each year and so far the results are as follows,

1981 - The Meister
1982 - Wallygator

Without sports to stoke your competitive fire, you can help us determine the winner for the best 1985 Playlist! So far the Meister has a 3-2 lead in the Decade Of Decadence battle. So you can stop betting on racing marbles on you tube and put your votes behind “Battle of the Playlists”
You can only vote once and voting ends Thursday May 21st at midnight EST.
