Vinylcast #47: Iron Maiden’s The Number of the Beast

#vinylcast on #ds106radio: Iron Maiden’s The Number of the Beast
Another day, another #vinylcast on bavaradio! It’s been a good week for me on #ds106radio with 3 #vinylcasts and a few impromptu broadcasts spurred on by the fact that the radio has been en fuego after more than a year of lockdown, which is really something. I was feeling so pumped up that I decided to pull out some Heavy Metal to rock the airwaves, and few 80s albums measure up to the Satanic verses of Iron Maiden‘s Number of the Beast!
I did my usual spiel of playing the record and then doing on-the-fly “research” on Wikipedia and winging the rest. I am having fun, and I may have even had a listener or two, which is a treat. Paul Bond even came prepared with his Eddie mask. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: when #ds106radio is popping it is a particular kind of joy few things can match in this crazy world.
It was also nice to have JR Dingwall along for the ride, love it when unexpected listeners pop-up and say hi. He was a Maiden fan as well, and even linked to this amazing Iron Maiden animated album cover:
And of course the back cover detail with the Hieronymus Bosch-inspired art was a must for the Twitters, as was the record sleeve with photoshoots of the band members. The second side of this album really is a doozy, and the guitar on Hallowed be Thy Name is ridiculous, big fan!
