Utah Burgess PARS666

Shady Lady ProductionsA Side Note from Bill: This episode number 666 has been asked about, by many bands throughout the years because of it’s relationship in the lore of metal. A few months back, Utah messaged me to see if this episode was still available because he wanted to be on it… and now time for a Utah/Bill background story.

Back in 2004, I had an idea to start a website that supported the local Alle-Kiski Music Scene. I didn’t really have a budget for it or even a name. Enter Utah who not only came up with the name but paid for the domain to get me underway… akmusicscene.com was born. Utah (and a large group of others) has been a huge supporter over the years of what I’ve been doing and I’m extremely excited that he ended up with the show that was in-demand by so many people in the scene.

Featuring music from: B.U.M., Rockabilly Junction, James Levier, The Mo Show, After the Fall, (kaj), Noble Hops – dug pretty deep for some of these tracks to show how far Utah’s history in this scene goes.
