Metalhead Ned

“Hey, the name is Ned, but you can call me Ned. Born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI. Went to Eastern Michigan University for radio broadcasting, so I suppose it worked out for me.

I can’t get over the fact that the pop SURGE is gone, I play so many damn video games that I may steal a car and kill hookers. I play guitar, sing, and all that good crap, so chicks kinda dig me I think. My musical taste vary from Pantera to Nobuo Uematsu.

Things I enjoy: Lava lamps, I have a man crush on Dimebag Darrell, Pizza, Beavis & Butt-Head, Star Wars, Schwarzenegger movies, and anything that is claimed as “bad ass” as well.

Tune in every weekend Sat. 7-Mid/Sun. 10-3  for stuff such as a video game talk, heavy metal, and other crap that will make you stay up all night playing Super Metroid.

Get to the choppa!

Schedule

Sa 7:00 pm - 12:00 am
Su 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Games To Try Before You Die: Ghostbusters (PS3, XB360, Wii)

Another new game in GTTBYD? Crazy I know! In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the amazing film known at Ghostbusters, this weeks GTTBYD is dedicated to the one of the better Ghostbusters games out there. The one of Sega Genesis is great, but with a newer generation, I have to pay homage to this game. It has it's flaws, but it's overall a fun experience!

Metalhead Ned’s Flashback Friday – Interviewing Phil Anselmo (The First Time)

2 Years ago, I was pretty new to the art of interviewing. Making sure you find the right questions and being able to spread out from whatever the interviewee has to say. So I was pretty green when it came to interviewing. Then I got an email that just flat out stated...

"You wanna interview Phil Anselmo?"
