Although it is not a new service by any stretch of the imagination, it is relatively new to me and I am speaking about Blog Talk Radio. I had heard it discussed a few times over the past year but never really deeply investigated into how I could use it for what we do over on PiercingMetal.com, but I admit that there is some level of interest in my mind to using it. Blog Talk Radio is a pretty descriptive title and allows you to follow talk shows that you have interest in, or even push your own personal envelope a little further by hosting your own show for all the Internet to enjoy. It’s been an active Internet presence since 2006 and with that being said, I recently learned about a Heavy Metal show being hosted by an old friend from the NYC Metal scene Tommy Falanga and his buddy Mike Catricola and they call it “The Heavy Metal Mayhem Show”. They do two shows a week and seem to lean to the more classic era bands with some time for the newer things. This past weekend after running around at two of our regional concerts with both Blind Guardian and Epica, I relaxed on a Sunday evening to catch their show and enjoy their jokes about things that amused them. Anyways, their expected call in guest for the show was Marcie Free who some fans might know as one time being Mark Free (the former lead singer for King Kobra). Sadly for some reason the singer never called in and with my being in the show’s chat window was asked to call in and discuss some of the recent live concert adventures I had seen for the Metal Republic. Click the logo to hear this very show and know that I come in at around the 55 minute mark and remain with the guys for the length of the program. It was a lot of fun going back and forth with them and I think that Blog Talk Radio might be something that a lot of music fans enjoy. I hope you like my views on the show and perhaps we three shall all talk again sometime in the future.
The Blog Talk Radio website allows you to play the show in your own player, and since I am a Windows user, I opted to do this in Windows Media Player. It allows you a little more control of the show and the chance to speed through or repeat something that you might wish to hear again. Enjoy.
