Casey’s #L100DJPick of the week:

This week Casey is going with a selection from the lovable rockers, Weezer. “Hero” is part of Weezer’s fourteenth album “Van Weezer.” The band tributes this song to people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The song is for “the stay at home dreamers, the zoom graduators, the sourdough bakers, and the essential workers.”

Although Weezer had to postpone their “Hella Mega” tour with Green Day and Fall Out Boy, the band is still making use of their guitar picking skills. You can even watch them perform “The Simpsons Theme” in Simpson character form on The Simpsons episode released May 10, 2020.

Give a listen to the lively guitar in “Hero” and let us know what you think!

Tune into 100.1 FM or lightning100.com to hear “Hero” by Weezer featured as Casey’s DJ Pick of the Week. We want to hear your thoughts, too! Tweet at us with #L100DJPick to tell us if we should keep spinning the record.

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
