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

Metalhead Ned Facebook Page Crawls to 1,000 Likes!

Who would have thought that I would make it this far! When I started my career in radio, I was suprised if anyone would ever get to know me. I mean, I am pretty much only on weekends, where most people are out having a good time and not really listening to the radio. So when the weekend DJ reached 1,000 likes on Facebook? That's a pretty good feeling!

Games To Try Before You Die: North & South (NES)

Strangly enough, today was the first day that I played this game. I was always curious about this game because it is so hard to find! All of sudden, my friend Bruce came across the game and I finally was able to take part in the North Vs. South fight!

Metalhead Ned’s Flashback Friday: Meeting Zakk Wylde

Working in radio, I have met a lot of awesome rock stars. Anything from Vinnie Paul, Phil Anselmo, KISS, Ivan Moody, Bumblefoot, etc. All of them were really cool people! I rarely get star struck these days. However, one time that I will always be star struck with is freakin' legendary guitarist Zakk Wylde!

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday – Wok n’ Roll Buffet?

Driving through Muskegon one day quite a few years back, I came across this place. It was the first digital camera I ever owned so I was taking pictures of everything. Of all the years that I had that digital camera (eventually the zoom broke), this was one of the best pictures I ever took!

Metalhead Ned Enjoys His First Sip of Surge [Video]

Here it is folks, the moment I have been waiting for! It's been way too long since I have had the fine green soda Surge.

Working on Wednesday took forever as I knew this fine beverage was waiting at my doorstep for me to come and enjoy.

Is Surge still as good as it was in the '90s?

Surge Arrives at My Doorstep Today

This has been a moment I have been waiting for over 10 years. Ten years of waiting for the delicious green nectar in a can. 10 years of remembering being a kid, playing Super Nintendo closely to my TV, late night while crickets chirped.

Trying to recapture that feeling over the years was impossible, since one part has been missing. Finally, that old feeling could come true today.

The cult classic '90s beverage Surge will be arriving at my doorstep later today.
