Our Editor's Take

The Eddie Trunk Podcast features a legendary commentator. In the New England area, only a few radio personalities have had the impact of Eddie Trunk. He has been a radio host, producer, and record executive in a career that has spanned over three decades. Trunk began his professional career as a music critic while he was still in high school. This would lead to him becoming an employee at Megaforce Records in his early 20s. The label focuses on releasing metal and hard rock records. By age 25, he had become the company's vice president.

After departing from the label, Trunk would begin what would become a legendary radio career. In the late 1990s, Trunk joined WNEW-FM. The station wanted to play more heavy metal and move away from classic rock. Since then, Trunk has been a vocal champion of metal and hard rock music on the radio. The Eddie Trunk Podcast is a continuation of his radio work.

On The Eddie Trunk Podcast, Trunk interviews icons of the metal and hard rock genres. Singers such as Alice Cooper, Brian Johnson of AC/DC, and Lenny Kravitz are just a few of the names who have appeared on this podcast.

Trunk has spent decades working in radio and has a genuine and unyielding passion for this music. This means that the interviews on The Eddie Trunk Podcast are always excellent. Trunk has developed the skill of making his interview subjects feel comfortable. As a result, they are willing to tell stories on this podcast that they might not otherwise be willing to tell.
