Episode 30 - Listener Request Show


"We hear & we obey" - Gene Simmons

Truer words could not be said of this weeks episode. This week, we turn the controls over to you, the listener. We've received some great requests over the last few weeks and now we get to share your choices with the world. We're happy to present our first Listener Request Show.

Before we get started, Chris & Aaron give a quick update of what's been going on at the official Decibel Geek website including a number of great new articles by our most recent writing addition, Wally Gator including 3 Guitarists You Should See Before You Die, Hoser Heavy Metal, and Death of the Album. We also give a shout out to Andrew Jacobs with another great interview; this time with KISS Army founder Bill Starkey.

Now, onto the music. We received requests from all over the world from this show as well as many States. You'll hear requests today from Australia, Canada, California, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, New Jersey, South Carolina, Virginia, Utah, and Illinois. It's wonderful hearing from you all and we look forward to doing another listener-based episode in the future. 

We'd like to plug the projects of a few of our listeners that took the time to request songs on today's show:

Michael Brandvold of Michael Brandvold Marketing & the Dropping the Needle podcast.

RJ Hogg of the Classic Rock Bottom website

Mike Sains of the Tower of Sour podcast

Vic Baric of the Vinnie Vincent Fan Forum

Denny Smith of The Great Affairs

There's lots of diversity in the song choices and you're sure to hear something you've never checked out in this episode. We added a few things to the iPod thanks to you guys and appreciate the requests. 

Enough of our yapping, let's hear some tunes!

Your listeners have some pretty good tastes. The first have of the show was heavy on songs I've never heard before. My favorite of those was the song requested by the female listener. Problem is, I listened last night and I don't remember her name or the name of the song.

The second half was music that I'm more familiar with. Always love a DLR era Van Halen tune. Always! Same with the Kiss tune and the Paul Stanley solo tune. Those are never bad choices. The Tenacious D song was also new to me. I take it this band is sort of a parody. I know who the band consists of, but I've never listened to them. But let me say, they have some chops. Musically, that song is smokin'. Very nice request.

And of course, thanks for playing my request, and double thanks for editing my message. I distinctly remember babbling a bit towards the end of it. Sorry 'bout that. Anyway, that Winger album is way, way underrated. I think it's a loose concept album based on the life of a soldier. If you haven't heard it, check it out. Love it.

Great show!

This was a fun listen, especially since I can't recall hearing a majority of these songs on the radio. Some really killer stuff, great picks by everyone.

So to get this straight..if I call and say you totally suck, will that mean I'm guaranteed to get my request played? And then, if it does, do I then have to say you DON'T suck? :-)

Another fantastic show!
