"Due to the severe weather of the past few days and the State of Emergency declared by President Obama and Governor Deal, The MANOWAR show scheduled for tonight will not take place.
That is the bad news.
The good news is that MANOWAR has agreed to return to play a rescheduled show on Wednesday, November 12th!
All tickets for the 2/13 show will be honored for the November show, so hang on to them! If you know that you cannot attend you may obtain a refund at the point of purchase.
We are sorry for any difficulty, but hopefully now everyone will get to see the show we have been waiting for for so long."

06/06/2006 -- Twenty-Four Hours of WREKage
Yep, WREKage made radio history and took over the WREK-FM airwaves for a full twenty-four hours on this, the most special of days for metalheads worldwide. We started up at midnight and continued all day Tuesday, June 6th. Check out the playlist!If you are interested in acquiring any portion of this broadcast, or all of it, contact Paul C. via the "About WREKage" page.
This was only preceded by the multi-day airing of the entire Merzbox CD collection a few years ago. Some claim we did it because three days of Merzbow was just not enough.
This plaque hangs in the WREK-FM lobby!
(It is actually nowhere near as big as that photo looks....)
