Welcome to CGCM Podcast‘s Riot Radio! 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! Welcome to CGCM Podcast EP#77-Riot Radio Vol 8!
Riot Radio #8 is off and running! Personally, I’m really enjoying making these riot episodes. It gives me a great chance to spin some wicked tunes that don’t fit into one of our podcast themes. Plus as some may know, since I was a kid I wanted to be WKRP‘s Dr. Johnny Fever. I even worked a mild stint at a local station and had some schooling…but adult life, full-time jobs, and mountains of bills held me back from the dream. Now I’m living it up here with Riot Radio solo podcast hosting, spinning tunes I wish would see exposure on terrestrial or even satellite radio! I’ve got another 12 pack cued up and ready to roll so let’s start a riot!
"GO DUNK". It's time for another episode of the Canadian Geeks Chatting Metal Podcast! This week this hosts sit down for a chat with very special guest, Darrell "Dunk", "Dwarf", "Darnell", "the Rock n Roll Pirate" Millar.
When Darrell is not pounding drums with the KiLLeR DWaRfS or singing vocals with Automan, you might just find him tapping away at a keyboard. It seems he has now added "Author" to his impressive resume. His first book "Guardian of a Time Keeper" is now available.
Not exactly a typical Rock n Roll biography, it seems that our Rock n Roll Pirate has had more than his fair share of "near death experiences". Guardian of a Time Keeper is a collection of these near misses in graphic detail. All told with the all too familiar Dwarf sense of humour.
Darrell has survived multiple near drownings, horrific automobile accidents, fires, natural disasters, terrible falls and being interviewed by the Canadian Geeks! The Meister and Wallygator dive into the book but also take some time discuss the Dwarfs, Automan, his connection to Steppenwolf, Laidlaw, Kick Axe and parenting in today's world. Most importantly the CGCM Podcast is given an exclusive. Listen in as Darrell tells the abbreviated but very entertaining story of how he ended up with the nickname "DUNK"!
It's an hour of stories, lots of laughs and some fantastic music including the brand new Automan track, "Street Urchin"
The CGCM Podcast is proud to unveil a new recurring theme for their audio podcast episodes! Co-host Rich "The Meister" Dillon is widely known for his globe-trotting rock and roll adventures. Enter the Meister's Travels series, which technically began some episodes back with our Call of the Wild, or Sweden Rock, even the Rocklahoma and Hair Metal Heaven podcast episodes.
In any case, here he is freshly returned from HRH Sleaze III to tell co-host Wallygator and you the listener all about the event. Of course, he spins some awesome music from that bands the played too.
It's always sad at the end. But it is upon me. My time at my first Hard Rock Hell event, HRH Sleaze, is winding down. Overall it was a fantastic experience. The venues, the bands, the people. While, I did not see every performer, not one that I did see was off their mark. Even one of my most hated bands in the world delivered a set that held me in trance.
A part of the Hard Rock Hell family, HRH Sleaze III, is as you guessed, the third installment of the annual festival. It takes place in Sheffield, UK and the lineup for 2020 is already announced with still more to come! The Hard Rock Hell organization presents many festivals throughout the year, this HRH Sleaze III being my first, but not my last. Next up is HRH Punk followed by the original HRH.I'll do my best to recap some of those experiences and band performances here as I tell Wallygator all about it. Take a listen to CGCM Podcast Episode #75-HRH Sleaze III featuring songs from many of the artists and interviews with two of the best bands all weekend!
