The Vortex of Chaos

Jun 13, 2022 12:00 AM â€“ 4:00 AM

With Bill Zebub

The Vortex of Chaos is a special blend of various metal styles (and other categories that magically find their way into the dark winds).

Not for feasting have I descended. Graver reasons have called me to earth.

I am Bill Zebub, your guide into realms where angels fear to tread. Metal has many faces. Some of what I will reveal to you will be familiar, but I hope you will discover many new artists.

When I was fifteen years old, a drummer in a local band told me to listen to a particular college radio station. I never knew that metal like that existed. Years later, I attended that college so that I could have a show in the same place that had expanded my awareness of music (not just metal, by the way). I soon became the metal director, and I intentionally stretched out my college years so that I could keep the show, ha ha.

After I graduated, I was told about WFMU by co-workers who had shows on that station (Yes, radio hosts have other jobs). I began as a humble volunteer and became immersed in the artistic culture. My devotion paid off and I was awarded a show. At one time I actually had two shows because there was a strong (positive) reaction to one of my alter-ego characters. He may appear on the Vortex of Chaos at some point.

I recently moved to Dallas. If you haven't hosted a show then you might not know how hard it is to give that up. One day I visited a book store, and a stranger complimented my WFMU T-shirt. He told me about KNON, saying that it has the same spirit as WFMU. I couldn't believe my luck. A common theme in my radio history is that of strangers changing my life with just a few words. Let me be the stranger who will change your life.
