    Liner Note Author: Miriam Linna.
    Prior to the flower power era and the emergence of underground FM radio, DJs like Pittsburgh's legendary Mad Mike Metrovich were the voice of a new youth generation, larger-than-life tastemakers and soothsayers whose broadcasts defined the sound and sensibility of the emerging rock & roll culture. Metrovich was a particularly compelling character by any metric: a longtime fixture on Steel City broadcaster WZUM, he proudly carried the torch for rockabilly and R&B throughout the British Invasion era, championing raw, dynamic records that presaged the emerging garage rock scene. Further bolstering his anti-authoritarian stance, Metrovich steadfastly refused to identify the records he spun either on the air or at live gigs, creating even more rabid listener interest in his playlists. The third volume in Norton Records' Mad Mike Monsters series assembles more than a dozen staples from Metrovich's 1964-1967 heyday, bolstered by WZUM radio spots and other vintage ephemera -- highlights include the Premiers' "Firewater," Wild Child Gipson's "Uncle John," and Baby Huey & the Babysitters' "Monkey Man." ~ Jason Ankeny
