The Wyrd Ways Rock Show Presents: Powerzone! Show #198

Well, we’re getting ever closer to that magic number, but we’re still not thinking about future plans for the show. Fortunately, this short-sightedness has allowed us to concentrate on keeping up the same high-quality nonsense you have come to grow and love, so you’re welcome. This show is no different, quality-wise! We have new tunes from Thaurorod, Grimner, Rumahoy & Venom Inc. amongst others and plenty of the usual power, folk and death metal plus of course, some forced chatter. We hope you enjoy it. As usual, if you do enjoy it, or really hate it, even, get in touch with us and tell us, and that includes if you have a request or just have a fetish for having your name read out on the radio. You can contact us on our Facebook page, which you can access HERE.
