    ** - the Krÿstal Sÿnn songs come from their 1988 demo “Basement Thrash” and members came to the studio to promote the Anvil/Liege Lord concert they were opening for (I was there!). They were a local Rochester, NY band that released 2 killer demos and played a lot of shows locally.

    ++ - taken from the Satan’s Revenge Part II Compilation LP 1988 and the song is from their 1987 demo.

    We did this show during my Sr. year in high school (I was 17 years old) on our schools radio station 93.3 WIRQ-FM. Each week I lugged 7 crates of my own vinyls down to the radio station in my parents station wagon and had to go up to the 2nd floor waaaaay at the end of the hall. We always played called-in requests. My nickname “Mercyful Mike” was given to me by friends at school (members of Diamond Tyr actually) for my love of Mercyful Fate. My co-host ‘The Axe’ was my high school best friend Gary Sauer. We used to jam together; me on guitar and him on drums. We met Ron in November 1988 and he started visiting the show weekly bringing CD’s for us to play. On this night he brought Sacrifice stickers and pins to giveaway on the show to promote their upcoming concert with Motorhead. He also recorded every show from November forward. Ron and I remained friends and did Sonic Insanity radio show from 1989 – 2004. Ron passed away in 2015 of bone cancer (R.I.P.). Thanks to Mr. C who was a great station manager and art teacher at W. Irondequoit High School and WIRQ.

    The track you don't recall at the end of Tape 1 (side B) is "I Am He" by the Crumbsuckers off of their 'Beast on my Back' LP

    By the way, I love these radio shows. I've been listening to them constantly.

    Here is a youtube link to the song
