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

With a New ‘Star Wars’ Movie Comes New Star Wars Merchandise!

Star Wars toys have been around seemingly forever! When "Star Wars: Episode 1" came out, I fell in love with the movie.

Nowadays? Not so much. However, I did fall for the hype though, I have so many "Star Wars: Episode 1" toys, it's crazy; and they are all still in their original packaging!

Now a new Star Wars movie is coming, and that can only mean one thing ... MERCHANDISE!
