Albums Unleashed – DaDa w/Dick Wagner (Ep. 134)

This week Aaron and Chris launch the first installment of a brand new series for the Decibel Geek podcast with Albums Unleashed. The stories behind the songs, circumstances, and creative process from a major player in an album’s creation. And to start things off, we’re covering Alice Cooper‘s DaDa album with special guest Dick Wagner. Released in 1983, DaDa was, for all intents and purposes, dead on arrival due to being the final album in…

Episode 106 – Jan Kuehnemund Rock in Peace

Episode 106 – Jan Kuehnemund Rock in Peace

One of the nicest people that we’ve interviewed over the past 2+ years was Jan Kuehnemund, founder of all-female hard rock band Vixen. While Jan’s guitar skills and physical beauty provided her with a powerful 1-2 punch in the music industry, those things were overshadowed when you actually talked to her. Jan’s dedication, integrity, and drive helped propel her and Vixen to stardom in the late 1980’s. Those qualities also served her well through the…

Episode 103 – The Big Rock Show

This week’s episode is the result of some it’s-a-small-world moments coming together. As you may remember, during our 2012 KISSMAS in July, we featured an episode on KISS Kover songs. One of the songs played was by a band named Hair of the Dog. This band achieved some strong popularity in the upper Midwest; most notably in central Wisconsin, home to Aaron Camaro. We couldn’t find a whole lot of information on Hair of the…

Episode 94 – KISS Road Stories with Peter Moose Oreckinto

When preparing for this year’s KISSMAS in JULY episodes, we wanted to dig in and talk to some people that were first-hand witnesses to KISS’ rise to stardom. This week’s guest not only witnessed it; he helped make it happen. Peter Oreckinto, or “Moose” as he’s known in KISS circles, was brought into the KISS family very early in the band’s history. Having a background in theater, as well as pyrotechnics, Oreckinto was tailor-made for…

Episode 73 – GPS: KISS Landmarks

2013 marks the 40th year of existence for Hottest Band in the Land.

Joining on this global KISS trek is author Chris Epting. Chris is the perfect guest for this conversation as he’s written a number of travel-related books on different eras…
