24-Hour Metal Tribute to Earl Root
Root of all Evil is infecting KFAI’s FM signal for a full 24 hours on Thursday May 23rd in tribute to its founder Earl Root.
This will be a day to celebrate Earl’s life and his contribution to our local metal community! We will include friends of Earl as guests on the air, in addition to those currently doing good things in our scene. Think of it as an on-air festival, a riot, a journey through the most underground of all genres – heavy metal!
Tune in Thursday May 23rd and celebrate with us!
Earl Root was a true pillar of the Twin Cities metal community. Without him the scene that exists today would look vastly different or it may not exist at all. Earl was a huge influence to many local bands growing up and gave them a home and a sense of belonging that has continued and prospered to this day. The metal community here in the Twin Cities is the result of more than just one person, but his passion and drive for all things metal cannot be overstated and his influence remains strong to this day.
