Bill M. steps in to host The Metro this week, with a tribute to the recently departed GREG LAKE. Although Lake was most famously known for his 1970s progressive rock work (King Crimson, ELP), The Metro explores Lake's often overlooked 1980s work, including solo albums featuring Gary Moore, the short lived "Emerson Lake & POWELL", and Lake's work with 80s supergroup ASIA. Progressive meets synth pop in this special Greg Lake tribute episode of The Metro!

This week, Reverend Bill M. steps in to host the Metro! Bill takes a break from his usual show of comedy to bring you an indulgent assortment of 80s pop rock from JOURNEY, THE CARS, THE KINKS, and DURAN DURAN, along with an extended look at two noteable rivals at the time: supergroup ASIA and the reformed YES. The "M" stands for "Metro"!
Join the Reverend Bill M. in celebrating the 30th anniversary of NIGHT SHIFT, the ridiculously underrated American comedy film. Hear some excerpts and realize why it deserves its cult following! Also hear GEORGE CARLIN with excerpts from his 2006 album "Life is Worth Losing", along with WOODY ALLEN, BILLY CRYSTAL, novelty from "WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC, and other comedy hors d'oeuvres including another strangely unrelated 30th anniversary of sorts.
