My favorite thing I experienced in Columbus this past year was Rock on the Range. This is a special music festival each year for the heavy metal fans of the midwest. Every year it harbors the unique and uproarious atmosphere that makes it a one of a kind experience. It is louder, heavier, and more enthusiastic than similar festivals in the surrounding area, and this is largely thanks to the promotional work of Loper and Randi whose morning show on 99.7 The Blitz unites a community of metal heads across all of Columbus. Every year, Rock on the Range is the weekend I look forward to the most.
