Legendary Rock photographer Mark Weiss and Metal Hall of Fame Founder/CEO Pat Gesualdo call in to the show to tell us about the 5th Annual Metal Hall of Fame Induction ceremony. Usually held each year in California, this year’s event is being presented in a covid-adjusted format. Inductions and performances will be done via video in what ammounts to an epic film experience. The film will premiere and be livestreamed worldwide on 9/12 at The Middletown Arts Center. Mark and Pat will host an in-person Q& A with Eddie Trunk and our own Keith Roth earlier in the day. That evening Mark will be inducted into the Metal Hall of Fame via a video speech from Dee Snider. Admission is free, however donations for the D.A.D Program (Drums And Dissabilities) will be accepted throughout the day. The D.A.D Program is one of the Metal Hall Of Fame’s key missions. It provides drum therapy rehabilition services free of charge to veterans and disabled childern. After we hang up with Mark and Pat, we turn up a track from a band that rocked both The Metal Hall Of Fame and WeissFest: Kodiak.
