This past week, I was contacted by one of our loyal listeners (actually Jon, the second-most loyal listener of the four) who told me the story of one Mr. Glen Langston, a fine friend of his who recently passed away. He tells me that Glen was a fan of the great Ronnie James Dio, Iron Maiden, and heavy metal in general, and that he would like to dedicate a song to this fine departed friend.

I said hell, any fan of Dio is a friend of mine, and I was going to play a bunch of songs about dead people turning into zombies and mummies and the devil anyway, so tonight’s whole damn episode of The Bicameral Headbanger was hereby dedicated to the memory of Glen Langston as well as all headbanging friends and loved ones recently departed. Gone but not forgotten goddammit
