Wyrd Ways Rock Show CCLXXV

WWRS CCLXXV

In the words of Joey Ramone, “Hey!  Ho!  Let’s Go!”  Sad news to start this week’s show.  Dave Brockie, also known as Oderus Urungus of Gwar went back to Scumdogia last week.  This week’s show is therefore dedicated to his memory.  That means a rather large dollop of Gwar, including a special put together by my fellow Cast Iron Ringers.   If you decide to join the exclusive club of subscribers, you’ll also get to hear an interview Cat conducted with resurgent NWoAHM band, American Head Charge.

Head for www.wyrdwaysrs.com after the Planet Mosh play of the show to download the broadcast version, or to become a subscriber if you want a higher bitrate version with over half an hour of extras each week.

The Wyrd Ways Rock Show also appears as part of The Cast Iron Ring and internet radio stations such as Planet Mosh, Nambucca Valley Radio, The Red Eye Network and Radio Metal On – The Heavy.  See their listings for details.
