Recently we've been digging through Newspapers.com doing some history research. Reading newspapers from the 1800s through the 1940s over and over again makes you realize that we aren't so special here in 2019. In fact, the more that things change, the more they stay the same. You can add radio, television, go to the moon, have multiple wars, the internet, and every political argument you can think of but in the end human nature seems consistent.

We are celebrating Halloween all month and while Venom may not be a household name they were instrumental in the Satanic dark music and black metal scene. So basically, if you've ever wondered about those really... REALLY dark heavy metal bands and were curious what that was all about, well, listen to this show.

When you think of Halloween and dark themed music you think of Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, and you certainly should think of Dio. Dio was the frontman for Rainbow (Richie Blackmore's post Deep Purple band), Black Sabbath (replacing Ozzy Osbourne), and then on his own with an all star band - Dio. Ronnie James Dio was articulate, imaginative, and could sing in league with the best of all time. This is the When It Was Cool salute to Dio!
