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

Just Another Day at the Office

Working at a radio station has its perks. Sometime (not all of the time) I get to go to concerts for free, meet cool rock stars, etc. Lots of times, strange things find a way to my desk.

Conan Invites Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski to Play Mortal Kombat X [Video]

Clueless Gamer has to be some of the funniest stuff on the internet. Late night host Conan O' Brien reviews video games. The catch is, he doesn't play video games. So who better to review them, than him?

In light of the upcoming Super Bowl XLIX, Conan invited Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch and New England tight end Rob Gronkowski to have a friendly game of the unreleased Mortal Kombat X and hilarity ensues on TBS' "Conan."

Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday: Interviewing Rob Zombie [Video]

Definitely one of the highlights of my life was being able to interview the man that introduced me to the world of heavy metal. I can't 100% credit him with that, but when I was younger, my brother bought Korn: Follow the Leader and Rob Zombie: Hellbilly Deluxe, I quickly fell in love with the albums.

I never in a million years think I would be chatting with Rob Zombie.

Sean & Sam of the GR Symphony stopped by the WGRD studios to talk video game music with station nerd Metalhead Ned.

Metalhead Ned Searches for an Autographed Christina Aguilera Trading Card [Video]

Remember when trading cards were a big thing? You would buy a folder filled with plastic inserts that you could place your cards in to show off to your friends. Baseball and Basketball cards were big hits. To cash in on the success of sports cards, things like Movies, Musicians, and even television shows showed up in the trading card industry.

I went to a local game store that had some leftover 1990's relics, I bought a few packs, and hoped for the big money.

Slipknot and Korn Perform Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ On Stage Together [Video]

Well, here is something you don't see every day.

Why is it that these bands always do this type of thing at shows that I am not at? There are so many bands that I would love to see a collaboration with, and seeing this was pretty awesome.
