Six, Six, Six…..the number of the Season and I am sorry for misappropriating the classic Iron Maiden tune but yes my friends tonight is the debut of the Sixth Season of VH1 Classics “That Metal Show” which is hosted by Eddie Trunk and company. As this is something a lot of the Metal fans are excited about, I like to keep in tune with you by doing a quick broadcast post such as this for a reminder.
With Season Five the show moved over to the West Coast and the biggest changes that came with Season 6 is the expansion into a one hour format and the inclusion of a special guest guitarist. To date there had been a few one hour specials of the program so let’s see how it does moving ahead with every episode. Do you think it will work or were you okay when it was only thirty minutes. Of course this season comes with the sad news that Ronnie James Dio had passed away so there would be a special dedication episode to him as it all got underway.
