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!

Metalhead Ned Has a ‘Surge Overload’

When it was announced that Surge was making a triumphant return to Amazon, I was geeked. When Vault was announced a bunch of years ago, I drank it like it was out of style. I think I drank maybe 24 in one week...and I wonder why I gained weight.

After I received the greatness that is Surge and I brought it to work, here is the end result.

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 SurgeĀ will be arriving at my doorstep later today.

Metalhead Ned Finds a ‘Tech Relic’ in Johnnie Walker’s Office

At WGRD, we were recently updated with a awesome new studio with some state-of-the-art tech and audio equipment. It's really cool! However, when I stumbled into Johnnie Walker's office today, I couldn't help but notice a 'Tech Relic' that if kids saw today, they would wonder what the hell it was.

Metalhead Ned’s Flashback Friday – Interviewing Huntress

I still pride myself on the fact that I get the opportunity to interview pretty much any metal band I want. From super famous ones to metal bands that are still finding their place in the genre. Up and comers to the metal circuit is Huntress. They have 2 albums to date at this point and Jill Janus sure knows how to wail. A couple of years ago, I was able to interview them.

The Legend of Zelda (NES) is Still Epic After 20 Years

Lately I have been playing a lot of games that most people would consider me 'not hardcore' gamer. Lot's of Nintendo games like Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, and pretty much anything classic. Last night, I just had the feeling I wanted to sit horribly close to a tube TV, grab my old players guide, and just play through the original Legend of Zelda. You know what? This game still hold's up REALLY well.
