Did they higher-ups at GPB make you change your name to The Void? If so, it's the smartest thing they've done since taking over Album 88. WNGTI was such a stupid name. I'm glad it's gone.

Nah, those guys couldn't give less of a shit about us. We just got new management is all. Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I always referred to the show as "the metal show" just to avoid saying "We're Not Gonna Take It." Razz Though I suppose at the time the show was created, the name did make sense.

Has it really been around that long?

Now it's just a matter of changing it on this forum *hint*. I got it wrong though; it's Into The Void, isn't it?

It was created in 1999 or 2000. The name was apparently sort of an inside joke, because most people at the station at the time hated metal and thought it shouldn't belong on a college radio station, so the dudes who created it were rightfully fed up and named the show "We're Not Gonna Take it." I'd be curious to see what kind of stuff they played in the beginning, though. If they mostly played black/death metal, that'd be odd.

Yeah, it's Into the Void. I didn't catch that in your post. I really like it -- hope I don't outgrow it.

I wasn't clear before, but we've actually been trying to change the name for over two years now. Lauryn tried to change the name back in May 2012 and management wouldn't approve it because the show had "always been We're Not Gonna Take It." Yes, she pointed out the logical fallacy and how hard it would be to market the show to a new audience with the old name. We made do, eventually focusing on "Metal at Midnight." We have new management now, and they were totally supportive of the name change. Yes, it's "Into the Void."

I take it you stopped playing WNGTI at the beginning of every show a while back? I didn't mind it I guess. I also never thought about changing the name when I hosted it either. I like the new name though, it is more fitting.
