Radioactive Metal 687: Johnnies On The Spot

The Metal World recently lost two important figures named Johnny. Mr. Johnny “Z” Zuzula was the founder/owner of the mighty Megaforce Records. The upstart label released a number of excellent albums that helped shape us as fans of our beloved genre. We also lost actor Howard Hessemen. For our more mature listeners, Hessemen will be best known as “Doctor” Johnny Fever on the awesome “WKRP In Cincinnati” sitcom aired from ’78-’82. The Doctor was a major influence on the creation of Radioactive Metal. So this week we thought it would be best to pay tribute to these Johnnies. First with discussing some of our fave Megaforce albums/songs. As well, we reminisce some of our fave episodes/moments on the mighty “…K.R.P.” In our “News, Views, and Tunes”, we discuss Meatloaf (RIP) and menstrual cycles(!), the whole Rogan/Young spotify thing, and the new/classic Slaughter album! Musically we crank new and used from Exciter, MOD ClassicTK, Pupil Slicer, Abhoria, Solicitor, the aforementioned Slaughter, and introduce Swearwolf in our “Indie Spotlight”. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!
