Today sees the Geordie frontman take to a different stage in the form of radio studio. It appears that Ginger now has a taste for being on the press side of things.

This month Metal Hammer published an article in which Ginger penned his views on the current state of the music scene, (read it here, and today it was announced by TotalRock that the ex-Wildhearts front man "will be airing his fave tunes and delivering his own repertoire of banter, jokes and info" along with his co-host and co-guitarist, Rich Jones, who also currently plays in the London based bands, The Loyalties and Sorry And The Sinatras.

TotalRock's Malcolm Dome commented: "He approached us and asked to do a show. Clearly enthusiastic about being part of the TR team. It's fantastic all round. He's a great character with a strong, loyal following, and we're all looking forward to hearing the music he'll play."

Ginger states in the program's synopsis; "My job is to put you in an effervescent mood for the weekend, and with righteous tunes and riveting banter from myself, and my trusty sidekick Rich Jones, that's a challenge I accept with relish. It's weekly and it's 100%!"

The show starts today, Friday 28th September, at 4pm (GMT) at totalrock.com.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
