 Busy morning!  Got Dave Navarro coming in, following by a visit from our friends at RadioContraband (they awarded me the 2011 Non Traditional Rock Programmer of the Year, thank you very much!)  and then a phoner with birthday boy Jonathan Davis!  I am blessed! ;) ….While catching up with my soap opera last night online, CBS Cares is doing a promotion tie in with Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne called, ready, Colonoscopy Sweepstakes!  You win a free 3 day trip to NYC and a colonoscopy.  Ozzy will go to the hospital with you I guess.  How nuts is that??!!!!   LOL  If you want to enter, be my guest.  www.cbs.com …..Spoke with Lzzy from Halestorm yesterday!  The band is so stoked over the new music!  I got a sneak listen to "Love Bites (So Do I)"  and lemme tell ya, IT FREAKIN' ROCKS!  So happy for them!   Meanwhile, yesterday,  the  tour starring Godsmack and Staind has officially been confirmed for this spring, with Halestorm  also joining the bill. All 3 bands asked fans on via their  Facebook pages for help naming the tour, writing, "It's official. Godsmack Staind and Halestorm are all going out on tour this Spring and we're asking for you, the fans, to help to name the tour! All you have to do is post your tour name suggestion in the comments section below. Thursday we will reveal the top 5 contenders from each band's pages and ask you to vote for your favorite. The winning tour name will be announced on Monday, 1/23." Do it now!   I offer:  The Wicked Killer Tour!  Because of the two Boston bands and it will be KILLER!  Sully Erna from Godsmack and Mike Mushok of Staind will drop by the studios in about 10 days to fill us in!  Stay tuned! ….Yesterday, Korn announced their tour with Kill the Noise.  See Road Rage….Download in England this year promises to be amazing, as usual!  Tentative line up includes Black Sabbath, Metallica, Soundgarden and more!

Meanwhile, there's been a drummer change.
