Some of you may recall that I used to host a radio show, Hard Rock Nights. A few months ago I handed over hosting duties to Brian Basher, and he has taken the show to heights I never imagined. There is a big announcement planned after the Super Bowl (which is tonight, I’m being told), and I can’t wait to see how far he takes this things.
Even though I’m no longer the host, I still do some writing for the new site. There is a little link in the top menu for JT’s Corner. That’s me. Sometimes random, often tongue-in-cheek, always music-related.
There are others writing for the site also. If you like your rock a little heavier, check out Keep It Metal w/ Myron S. In addition to that, press releases are posted all the time to keep you up-to-date with rockers around the world.
Just closed on a house over the weekend, so we’ve been busy packing and making moving plans. Between that and working 8-12 hours a day (including weekends), I haven’t had much time for blogging. My apologies. It’s just too difficult to write a coherent post with pretty pictures and such at work.
But I have been keeping up on my reading. There is a new blog out there, bdj610’s “The Topps 300 (and then some…)”…a response to Topps’ awful attempt at a “top 60.” Get over there and comment on Jaybee’s selections so far, make some suggestions and let’s show Topps how it should have been done!
I would also like to ask you a personal favor to me. Would you be so kind as to take a few seconds to vote for Hard Rock Nights as “best radio show” in the Kerrang! Readers Poll 2010? You do not have to register or even give your e-mail address…just click on that link and fill in the box with “Hard Rock Nights.” Then you can go back and vote on other categories (like Black Robot for “best band”…hint hint).
I do not host the program anymore due to my hectic schedule and the fear of burning out, but it is still alive and well in the capable hands of Brian Basher (who was threatened by Hard Rock Cafe last week…but he stood his ground and they backed down!) and I would really appreciate your continued support. I am still involved with the program, but to a much lesser extent than before.
Speaking of Hard Rock Nights, there is a brand new website for the show! There’s a lot of work left to be done, but it is now live and will be improved over the coming days and weeks.
Ok, now that I’ve got all that out there, I need to get back to being busy doing nothing.
