Rising out of the dark ages of nu-metal, The SIDESHOW led the charge for the New Wave of heavy music at 98.1 WQAQ, initiating a loud rock revival at the prestigious, student-run radio station. What Brian began in 2002 would grow into something bigger than he ever imagined. Garnering critical acclaim with the addition of Nick in 2003, The SIDESHOW would evolve and continue even after its creators graduated. Brian and Nick passed the torch to the ROCK(jock), who further revolutionized the program by bringing it to a worldwide audience. Collectively, The SIDESHOW won two Show of the Year awards and marched on to become the longest running show in WQAQ history. Now, after a two-and-a-half year hiatus, The SIDESHOW rises again…

    Dabbling in Body Horror We tried really hard to do an episode themed around bands with body horror names.  However, despite our efforts, we only got 2/3 of the way there. So, instead of amputating the show for the sake of a theme, filling the third slot is a band whose theme is based on […]

    Technical, Groovy, and Grimy We went extra heavy this week.  Why the extra br00tal?  No particular reason – these are just the albums that fit in the timeline and our general interests.  Like usual, results varied a bit, but you’ll have to listen to find out why.

Well informed metalheads

Brian and Nick know what they're talking about when it comes to metal. The show keeps the listeners up to date on the latest in the metal scene and features in-depth, smart reviews of new albums. You also gotta give them credit for putting out a show consistently every week for years. \m/

Metal Mondays from now on

This is a really entertaining and funny metal podcast. The clash of personalities is perfect - you can't script this kind of hilarious, but smart banter. It's what I wish was on the morning radio. I used to be quite the metal head but fell out of the scene - I got tired of keeping track of all the bands- the news, the releases, the line up changes. I think if Sideshow was around I'd never have fallen out of the scene. I've been enjoying the reintroduction to metal & reminiscing of metal days past. Subscribe already!!
