    WWRS: The Forge, Season 2, Episode 4

    WWRS: The Forge, Season 2, Episode 4

    This episode is brought to you by Aldi's Cookie Dough ice cream and the number.... erm.... 4?  Will that do the job?  I mean, it is the fourth 'cast of this Season 2 version of The Forge.  Anyway... loads and loads of new stuff plus some old stuff that's new, since it's never really been heard before.  Kind of makes you realize that Black Sabbath weren't the only ones ploughing the same furrow back in the late 60's and early 70's.  It's just that they got there first and they had something the others didn't that got them noticed.
    Anyway, here's the show for your delectation.  If you like it, tell your friends.  If you don't... well... take a long walk off a short pier.  I don't care.

    WWR: The Forge 2.3 - Where's My F**king Jetpack

    WWR: The Forge 2.3 - Where's My F**king Jetpack

    This one was supposed to come out last week. The problem is, the release schedules hadn't really kicked in enough that I could do a full show. OK, I could have filled up the rest of the airtime with old stuff, but that's not what The Forge is all about. The Forge is all about new stuff, so I delayed the release until it was all new stuff bar a couple of songs that I love.
    Since there's been a few more days of releases, the show is ready to roll out.
    So here it is. The first edition of The Forge of 2020.
    Now since we're now really officially in The Future, where's my f**king jetpack?!

    WWRS: The Forge, Season 2.2 - The Christmas-ish Episode

    WWRS: The Forge, Season 2.2 - The Christmas-ish Episode

    Hans Gruber has taken his fall off the top of the Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles... so to quote Noddy Holder, "Iiiiiit's Chriiiiiistmaaaaaaas!"
    I don't normally do Christmas shows, but since this hasn't been a normal year, I thought I'd try and break my speed record for recording, mixing and publishing, and what you've got here is the result: A somewhat half-baked edtion of The Forge.
    It's even more random than usual, since the links were literally right off the top of my head and done as quickly as possible.
    Right then.
    Happy Christmas.  I'm off to bed.

    WWRS: The Forge, Season 2

    Let's give this another try then, shall we?
    One of these days I'll hit a formula that works for me and you'll get yourself exposed to some of the best Metal you've ever heard.
    Yes, there'll be old stuff.
    There'll also be a lot of new stuff, since the mission here at The Forge is to help get some new stuff into your ears.
    Let's do this

    WWRS: The Forge - Turn Up The Heaviosity!

    WWRS: The Forge - Turn Up The Heaviosity!

    When I started The Wyrd Ways Rock Show, there was really nothing on the radio or TV covering Hard Rock and Metal. Since then, things have improved. with Primordial Radio (so good I bought part of the company!) getting the balance mostly right.
    That said, they don't really do much with the Heavier end.  Which is fair enough when you consider that Pete, their music co-ordinator isn't really into the PROPER Heavy stuff, and based on that, he doesn't really have the industry contacts in that area. Neither do Moose or Dewsbury, for the same reason. Shorty seems to be more into Pop Punk, so... you get the picture.
    That's not a negative criticism, by the way, it's just the way things are.  Plus, there's only so many hours in the day, so even if he was as immersed in this stuff as he would need to be, he wouldn't have the time. Obviously Primordial isn't the only Rock/Metal radio station, but it is the one with the least amount of Old Man Balls being played (you know what I mean - pretty much anything played on Planet Rock or Absolute Classic Rock).  So since they've got a lot of the Rock and Mainstream stuff covered, I'm going heavier.
    Basically, compare Download to Bloodstock.  If they're going to be Download, I'll be Bloodstock.
    So let's do it!

    Once More... With Feeling

    Once More... With Feeling

    Let's try this again, shall we?  Now the old mental health is not so bad (even though I am still... erm... unbusy, so if anyone's got any jobs going, let me know!), I thought it was time to resurrect this whole podcast thing.  Believe it or not, this one's been brewing since March, so with a few tweaks, it's now ready.
    Let's light 'em up.
