Wyrd Ways Rock Show 24th December 2017

It’s the last Wyrd Ways Rock Show of 2017… or certainly the last one before the traditional Yuletide Behemoth, anyway. Despite the fact that this is, effective a Christmas show, I’ll only inflict one Christmas tune on you.

It’s one you’ll like.  I promise.

What else do we have for you?

Well, the last Record Of The Week is a bit of a cracker, then there’s loads of other stuff, including Nick from Nuclear Blast having a bit of a chinwag with Robb Flynn of Machine Head.

Who says I never get you anything nice?

What are you waiting for?  Press Play and turn it up LOUD!

Wyrd Ways Rock Show 13th December 2017

The countdown to Christmas now begins in earnest. Just to show I’m not a total Scrooge, I’ve included the full sweary version of Lawnmower Deth‘s collaboration with Kim Wilde (yes, THAT Kim Wilde… she of Kids In America back in the 80’s, who went on to do gardening shows for the BBC).

There’s also a fond farewell to Triaxis, new stuff from all over the place and… well… I’m not going to tell you who gets Record Of The Week. You’ll just have to listen to the show when you’ve finished downloading it, or it arrives in your Inbox (if you’re a Sponsor or on the mailing list).

Turn it all the way up!

The next show is coming… be ready!

OK sentients, since I’ve done the recording for the current show, and intend to get it published tomorrow, I’m now taking requests for the #freespinwhatever portion of the next edition of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show.   Might even be tempted to make it a bit Christmassy.

Oh yeah… I’ll also be starting to build the infamous, traditional Yuletide Behemoth, which covers the albums released during this year. The longest one I ever made topped 7 hours.

Suggest a track by clicking on THIS LINK or via the contact form, Facebook or Twitter, and I’ll trade you a shoutout – the only proviso is it’s got to be a song from an album that was released in 2017

The Wyrd Ways Rock Show Presents: Powerzone! Show #191

Wyrd Ways Rock Show, 3rd December 2017

So here we are spinning rapidly towards the end of another year. 2017 is almost over, but The Wyrd Ways Rock Show is celebrating the dying embers of this year with another slab of quality Metal.

Not only do we have new stuff from such luminaries as Machine Head, Electric Wizard and Almanac, we’ve got Skarlett Riot snapping up Record Of The Week with a serious slab of quality called Regenerate and a celebration of His Infernal Majesty himself, Ville Valo, as he hangs up his mascara and puts H.I.M to bed for the last time.

Loads of other good stuff too.

What are you waiting for?

Press Play and turn it up LOUD!
