Greetings ladies and gentlemen,
As Halloween approaches, I feel as though a TCP blog update is long overdue! As many of you know, Jeremy Enns, founder of The Circle Pit and all-around rad dude, has been absent from our broadcasts this semester. Apparently Jer thought that getting his university degree and pursuing a career was more important than our show. What a sellout! But don’t worry, Jer will always be a part of our show in some way, shape, or form. He’s still a great friend and ally of the heavy music community, and may even grace our airwaves once again before the semester concludes. More on that later…..
At the beginning of this season, I started having rotating guest hosts on the show to keep me company. It was a lot of fun, and I’m sure we’ll continue having guests from time to time, but there’s nothing like having a reliable co-host to chat about hardcore/metal with every single week.
Which is why I am VERY excited to announce that Emmett O’Kane, longtime friend and unbelievably talented musician, is now a permanent co-host on The Circle Pit! Emmett and I actually played a bunch of shows together in our old bands way back in the day, so I couldn’t think of a better person to co-pilot this show with. He’s also a mutual friend of Jer and I, so in many ways he was already a part of the TCP family, and an obvious choice. To be honest, I was stunned when Emmett told me he was down to join the show. He’s much cooler than me and knows a lot more about music, so let’s just hope he’s able to tolerate me and my corny jokes for a decent amount of time!
Anyways, thank you sincerely for reading, and keep tuning in to Radio Laurier Mondays at 9pm for THE CIRLCE PIT! 🙂
