CGCM Podcast EP#135 – CGCM Rock Radio Turns One

Happy Birthday

It’s party time here at CGCM Radio! It was a little over a year ago when the Meister called Wallygator on the phone. This in of itself spoke volumes because the Meister hates talking on the phone!

SOCIAL DISORDER (A Chat With Anders LA Rönnblom)

A few weeks back CGCM‘s Rich “The Meister” Dillon had a zoom video chat with his friend Anders LA Rönnblom. The two have remained in contact since an interview back in 2012 and have tried a couple of times to meet in person, yet always just out of sync. While the chat encompassed updates on […]

BEST OF 2020 – The Meister (Radio DJ/Podcast Co-Host/Writer)

This year CGCM decided to include EP (previously they were excluded from Top Ten Albums). Live albums and re-records were still disqualified, new music only for Best of Year.

SISTER SIN – Raw & Mean (Live from Rehearsal) (Album Review)

As we all know the world over, this pandemic business has changed life as we know it. One thing many of us are feeling is the loss of the live music scene, in every genre. Personally I’m not someone who can do the Livestream thing. Can’t watch a show on my tv or comp and […]

LADY BEAST – Vultures Amulet (Album Review)

As many regular followers of myself, CGCM Podcast or my former affiliations with Decibel Geek are well aware of my undying love for the Pittsburgh based metal band Lady Beast. I always felt an uplifting from listening to their music. I mean, music has that ability in general, but it was definitely a stronger pull […]

Posted on the Call of the Wild Festival Facebook page March 27, 2020: It is clear the current pandemic will have the country in turmoil for quite a while, ruling out any possibility of keeping to our May schedule, particularly the restrictions on mass gatherings that have been brought in and may still be in […]

HYSTERIA – Rock Police (EP Review)

From the land of mountains, cheese, chocolate and tiny little knives comes the Rock Police! Swiss hard rock band Hysteria issued their Rock Police EP on March 14, 2020.
