The CGCM TEAM of Contributors (CGCMs Best of 2019)
It’s been an incredible year for us here at The Canadian Geeks Chatting Metal (CGCM) Podcast/Website. We witnessed huge growth in podcast listening numbers. We saw our Facebook page breach 1,000 “likes”. And we unveiled our new website.
While the podcast, hosted by “Wallygator” Norton and Rich “The Meister” Dillon, has been operating since 2017, it took until 2019 to see the launch of our brand new website. The boys wanted an outlet for their creativity in writing album/concert reviews, blogs and articles. Soon Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall, an avid listener since day 1 of the CGCM Podcast, came on board as a writer/reviewer.
Closer to the end of the year our team simply exploded…and internationally as well. We welcomed fellow Canadian contributing writers and photographers, Shawn “Animalize” Irwin, Brian Ronald and Dave “Andy Travis” Wood to the team. But CGCM cannot be contained within the Canadian borders and we stretched our reach into our Commonwealth and the UK. Welcoming on board Adam “Coxy” Cox, Tom Cornell, Graham “Sparky” Spark and Ian “Mad Ian” Spencer, all based in the UK. But we didn’t stop there. Our lone USA representative, Andy “Maddog” Lafon joined us late in the year. Was that enough additions to the CGCM Team in 2019? Hell no! Sweden is well represented by Mikael Svensson and Rachel Leigh Vendetta. With this awesome team of music lovers around the world, we usher in the New Year and jump headlong into 2020.
Through it all was the Music
