The other day, Eric Zane noticed something about our co-worker, Metalhead Ned, here at the home station of "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show," 97.9 WGRD.

Free Beer & Hot Wings Show Chats with Metalhead Ned About His ‘Penis Ears’ [Audio]

Have you ever gauged your ears before? Are they gauged now? Many people can live normal lives with their earrings, but my ears took a turn for the worse when I gauged them. I started to grow a keloid scar...and man, do they suck. Eric Zane has noticed them over the past year and they just needed to know, so I joined them on air!

Metalhead Ned’s Horrible Interview ‘Fail’ With Korn’s Jonathan Davis [Audio]

The 'Art of Interviewing' is a creative thing. Not everyone can interview perfectly, and what you here in a radio interview is normally never live. Getting a perfect interview is rare, and I hoped that would happen with my interview with Korn's Jonathan Davis. Well...not so much...I lost my cool in a matter of seconds.

Metalhead Ned’s Random Pic of The Week-Vol. 3

I like animals, quite a bit. They can give you companionship when you need it, and are always full of life and energy. I used to have a Chameleon named Gene...he was awesome. I was able to snap a picture of one of my highly energetic cats I have living with me...he is very excited.

Metalhead Ned’s Random Pic of Week – Vol.3

I see lots of cool/weird stuff pretty much every week. Recently, we went back to the world of Pond Hockey at Reeds Lake because we still had all of the wood from this past years tournament on the ice. Before it became to warm, we had to get that stuff off before it sunk into the lake!

Metalhead Ned’s Tribute to Scumdog ‘Oderus Urungus’ [Video]

Today is a very sad day. I really am trying to come to terms with the news I heard when I turned on my phone and saw a Facebook message that readd, "I don't know if this is true, but check this out!"

I read the message and a terrible feeling came over me to find out that the leader of GWAR has passed on.

I have a unique history with this band.
