Monday Night, November 5th Show

Hi all!

Here’s the setlist from Monday night, November 5th, the 11th episode. I dedicated the show to all those who suffered any kind of loss from Sandy, whether it was power for a few days or to those who lost everything. It was a night of songs of hope.

Two new segments started: Tunes From Beyond the Tomb, horror-themed songs and the Monday Night Wars. This war of songs is all about you, the listeners. Each week I play a couple of songs in four genres (alternative, prog, rock and metal) and you get to vote on which song you like best in each category. At the end of the month, the weekly winners go head to head to head in a triple threat match and the winning song gets put in rotation as well as more songs by the band whose song won. Do you think you have an unbeatable song? Feel free to make song suggestions for the Monday Night Wars and feel a sense of pride when your song kicks butt!

Ways to vote and recommend songs: You can go to the Rock Labyrinth Facebook page, join up and vote, send me a message on Facebook or email me at Because the show is repeated on Saturday mornings at 9am, voting will remain open until Saturday at midnight. The votes will be counted up and the winner announced the following Monday.

The October 29th Show ... MIA

First, I'd like to say that I hope all of you and your families out there in internet radio-land are safe after Sandy blew through and you didn't have too much damage.

Well, Hurricane Sandy did in the Halloween Labyrinth show this past Monday. We had no power, so all I could do was play board games in the dark by flashlight and listen to music on my iPod with little tiny speakers. And course hope that by the time  Sandy blew out the river hadn't crested over 11' and the wind hadn't done too much damage.

I put a lot of time and effort into finding songs for the Halloween show and because of that, starting this Monday, November 5th, I'll be having a new segment (potentially) called Terror Tunes From Beyond the Tomb or just Tunes From the Tomb. Or something. You'll be hearing three to four horror-themed songs from such bands as Bauhaus, The Misfits, Horror of '59, Polka Dot Cadaver and many more. I'll also have faux movie trailers from Ru Morgues Hymns from the House of Horror II as well as clips from a variety of horror movies.

I'll still be playing What Lurks Under the Covers and Birthday Wishes segments and bring The Vault in maybe once a month.

If there's anything you'd like to hear like song requests or segment suggestions or songs for the current segments, please let me know. You can either post your comments here or send them over to

So I hope to see you all on Monday, November 5th at 9pm at to join me for another exciting three hours of prog, punk, metal and alt-wave!
