It started with a tweet by Hannibal (@hannibalburess) asking if anyone in the Baltimore/DC area wanted to have him come on their show and rap. Challenge accepted, intrepid DJ Matt Weinberg ’17 chased the dream. A few hours later, arrangements were being made and the next morning we had Hannibal on the phone from DC. He didn’t rap, but he did talk about a lot of things – from kicking (or maybe not) Flavor Flav in the face to helping Matt and co-host Mike Dayao ’18 name their show. It’s now officially “The Garbage Can and The Man”, in case you’re wondering. Hannibal Buress will be in Baltimore for a show at the Meyerhoff tomorrow night, but for now, you can hear him here!

It’s taken several tries to catch the slippery Swamp Cabbage and get them in the studio. We’ve had them play a show in Florida, had Walter Parks stop by a couple of times solo, waved “Hi” to Jagoda on the LIE, but Jim just won’t leave the swamp. Finally, we did it. I’m still not quite sure what happened, or if we actually talked about music because we were laughing so much. One thing is sure, if they ever decide to put away the Greco-Roman wrestling costumes and dock the iron lung, Swamp Cabbage has a second career in comedy. Listen in as Walter Parks, Jagoda and the ever-elusive Jim DeVito talk Swamp Cabbage, the honor of playing Katz’s Deli and mis-translating Spanish.

How do you explain the brilliant madness that is Metalachi? And, more to the point, who in their right mind would give them control of a radio station?! We did. For 90 minutes the station was seized by a mad mix of heavy metal, mariachi music and George Michael… Yes, seriously. The band stopped by on the second night of their East Coast tour to hang out with our GM Tara and give her a dose of their show. Not only did they select all the music for the show, they even allowed us to play the advance version of their cover of Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades” which will be appearing on their upcoming second album, shockingly titled “Dos”. We will have some video and more photos to follow, but for now, we’re just busy trying to find the N’Sync bobble heads.
Baby Got Back- Sir Mix Lot
She Blinded me with Science – Thomas “I live in Baltimore now” Dolby
Careless Whisper – George Michael
Ember City- Mastadon
Remember the Time- Michael Jackson
Have You Ever Loved a Woman- Bryan Adams
Tits- John Paragon (actually we couldn’t play this one for obvious reasons, but they wanted to)
Final Countdown- Europe
Holy Diver- Dio

Resident Metal Head, Matt Weitzel, was fortunate enough to get a two for one deal at the last stop on the first leg of I The Breather’s farewell tour, and got to chat with another hometown hero, Baltimore based Metal powerhouse, Fire In Elysium, as they were one of the opening acts for the night. Matt got the chance to discuss FIE’s upcoming album, the state of the Baltimore Music Scene, and the prospect of opening up for another Maryland Metal band, I The Breather, who have been able to live their dream for one of their last shows as a band, and what that means to them.

Ryan Porter, the bassist from Psycho Killers (a Baltimore Talking Heads cover band), took some time with Kat and Rae to talk about their founding, upcoming Black Friday show and just how exactly they ended up with Thomas Dolby (yes, the “She Blinded Me With Science” guy) asking to join them on stage for a show. The band performed it’s second annual fundraising event at Baltimore Soundstage to gather donations for Toys For Tots the day after Thanksgiving. This year there was the bonus of Thomas Dolby sitting in!

Kat & Rae (of the infamous Kat & Rae Midday show) had a nice phone chat with Allen Stone about his upcoming show (11/11 make a wish!) at Baltimore Soundstage a few days ago. Allen survived their lightning round of questions and shared the experience of being an on-demand Uber driver, among the tasty tidbits. Is it the hats, or the hair that intrigues them more? You’ll have to listen in to find out. And ignore the digital whoops and bloops that our phone system made… sorry.
