I had a lot of fun with the show this week, for no special reason. There was no theme, but there was a lot of Folk Metal (it began 10-15 minutes before news) and that is always a good thing. There were a few requests, and some that I couldn't get to this week, but I'll make sure I play them next week.
As far as news this week, there really wasn't anything. The only I said on air was that details about Alestorm's upcoming album were released on Blabermouth.net. The album is called "Back Through Time" and it should be another great one we can add to Pirate metal.
Although there wasn't news this week, the beginning of the 1 o'clock hour was fun because I got to playasong from the local band, Shield of Wings! They are a great band from Bolingbrook, IL that sounds kind of like Nightwish or Epica. They're great and we are working on getting them on the show, so you can look forward to an interview with them sometime. Check them out on Facebook, Myspace, Reverbnation, Cdbaby.com, Youtube, and iTunes.
