VomitRadio is the creation of Eric Egenes, veteran of Metal Radio for over 20 years.
started playing hard music on the airwaves at KUNM Radio in Albuquerque,
New Mexico back in 1987. Eric was Metal Music Director and hosted
the show "Radio Nightmares" and gained a large listenership
playing the best in underground metal, punk and alternative rock.
After a year of searching, Eric landed the Program Director job at WTZR (another Z-Rock affiliate) in Scranton, PA., in 1994. He started programming heavy music into the format and started a weekly show called the "Weekend Powersurge" (with the air name 'Johnny Kilgore'). The management of the station and the Z-Rock network didn't like this of course, and tried to pressure Eric to change to a 'listener friendly alternative format'....which he refused to do. Soon after the premiere of his show, Eric was fired.
1995, Eric ended up working overnights at KTEG, The Edge, in Albuquerque,
again as 'Johnny Kilgore'. After a year and 3 months, dealing with
overbearing program directors who never gave him a raise or any
amount of respect, getting turned down for better airshifts (even
though he was the #1 overnight jock in Albuquerque), Eric got tired
of the shit and totally snapped. He took over the radio station
for over 2 hours and played nothing but the heaviest of metal.
The phones blew off the hook in support...even the next morning
when the morning show came in, they also interviewed him live on
the air to get the whole story (to quote Eric from the interview "Sometimes
you gotta grab the bull by the horns and give him a swift kick
in the nads").
Of course Eric was fired the next day, but with a smile on his face.
the next three years, Eric worked as a strip club disk jockey,
went to school to learn about computers,
A long time ago, Eric came up with VomitRadio.
On January 1, 2000, VomitRadio.com launched to the world and radio will never be the same again.
VomitRadio will continue to feature the best in metal, punk, industrial, hardcore, and also unsigned bands.
VomitRadio is here to stay!
