SlothThe Sloth is one of the oldest co-hosts on The Last Exit for the Lost. He was first on air way back in 1994. One of the earliest shows we still have in the archive can be heard with Sloth. He has been with us off and on the whole time, but not frequently as he is slow. He's a funny guy, in a lot of ways. He's also a little disturbing. Sloth loves all kinds of Metal and more Gothic music.


RickRick is a regular co-host for The Metallic Onslaught. He visits us now and again, and has also been used as an enforcer of sorts at times. Rick loves the heaviest of Metal!

Randy (MetalWulf)

RandyOften are said the words, "Poor Randy." Randy is a regular co-host of The Metallic Onslaught who visits the Last Exit now and again, especially on certain shows. Bad things have a tendency to happen to him, but he comes back for more... He has died during We Love Satan shows, often gets possessed by Satan, has horrified us during the No Pants Day show, has been mummified for his 50th birthday, and much more. Randy has very diverse taste in Metal. At one point he also believed himself to be a Werewolf...

Justin (AKA 12 Inch)

JustinWe aquired Justin on April 12, 2015. He is a DJ at WVBR that Azkath ran into who happened to like Old School Metal, so he convinced him he should come out to The Last Exit. Although Justin likes a variety of Metal, he is especially partial to 70's and 80's Classic Rock and Metal. 

He got the nickname 12 Inch at some point because Nathan said he loves 12 Inch (referring to records) just as Justin walked into the studio, so we misunderstood that to mean Justin WAS 12 Inch. We have had fun with gentalia jokes ever since...


NathanNathan has only been with us since our We Love Satan Easter show 2015. The youngest regular member of The Last Exit, also revealed to be a Bronie. Despite this, Nathan has fit in quite nicely, he has a great range of tastes and interests, musically and otherwise. He is also adept at running a video camera and sound board and makes a fantastic addition to the show. He's also a fan of outdated technology, and seems to be rather witty...

Tim Binder

Tim2Tim is a regular on the show when he is in the area. He spends the better portion of the year in L.A. promoting bands, movies, and working in the entertainment industry in general. He has previously worked for Victory Records and Century Media Records and still hosts the Century Media Podcast. Beyond that, Tim LOVES romantic comedies, Glam, and Hard Rock. He despises action movies and Sci-Fi, but for some reason likes traditional slasher type horror movies.  He's a bit of a puzzle at times, but is a great addition to the show when he visits!

Submissions and Contact

We are more than open to playing underground, unsigned bands from anywhere in the world. We prefer you mail us a CD. Our address is;
The Last Exit for the Lost
Po Box 444
Ovid, NY 14521

 Submission E-mail: Submit   @ (remove the spaces)

We do accept MP3 files, however they must be 320 bit files, we WILL NOT play anything at a lower bitrate.
You can upload stuff straight to our dropbox. And please e-mail us to let us know that you have uploaded something and tell us who you are.

Ripping and Uploading Instructions
I realize that not everyone knows how to do this, so for those that need it, here are the tools for you to do that as easily as possible. First, download the old version of Audiograbber and the MP3 plugin HERE.
Audio Grabber, is a free program, and very easy to use. The newer version is not as simple however.

Once you have installed both (and make sure you uncheck the optional software which will just clutter your browser), click on the MP3 button. The only setting that needs to be changed is in the bitrate box. Select Constant Bitrate, and then move the slider to 192 or above. The higher the bitrate, the better the sound quality and the bigger the file. 192 is about CD quality though, and usually sufficent.
The last step is to click on settings, then up top you can select where you want the files to go. The default is your My Music folder. You can also change what the file name consists of here if you want, but leaving it alone is fine as well, so there is nothing that HAS to be changed here.

Now just put your CD in, add in the song titles, and make sure you do that, no one wants an album with no song titles. Just click twice and change the name. If your CD has CD text, try the CD pulldown and 'get titles from CD Text', and it should fill it in. Correct what you need to, and then click GRAB. It will convert your files quickly and in high quality. It will also keep the settings if you want to convert anything else in the future.
Now, although e-mailing a few songs is usually ok, we do prefer a full album, with artwork where possible. If you have cool artwork, there is a good chance we will talk about it on the air.

Ok, so once you have a folder with your album in it, right click, and select Send To and Compressed Folder (in windows anyways). That will give you one file with your album in it. Now go get a free Dropbox account (or if you have a preferred upload method, use that). Dropbox allows you to just place that file in the dropbox folder and it will upload it to their server. By right clicking on it, and going to Dropbox you can get the URL for that file. Then e-mail it to us, or anyone else you want to send the album to.

So that is it, simple and easy. If you have questions, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


History of The Last Exit for the Lost

TheWebThe Last Exit for the Lost started out as Rockin' the Night Away way back in September of 1985 and was hosted for years by Jon Lovely. In August of 2015, Seriah had Jon, or JRRBL as he was known on air, join him for a Dealer's Choice show and they discuss the beginning of the show and he tells some stories from those days. You can find that in the Dealer's Choice Section of the Archive. Jon eventually left and it changed hands here and there, first to Chris Thompkins, then to Mary Ramirez, who changed the name to The Metal Cage, and eventually ended up in the possession of Seriah Azkath. His first show was June 3, 1994, and he has been doing it ever since. (Prior to this, he published a music zine called The Web: A Literary Journal of Extremes in Music and Entertainment, which pretty directly lead to him taking over the radio show. The zine ending it's existence in Spring of 1998 after 15 thick issues.)

On January 20, 1996 Seriah moved the show from Friday to Saturday (so it no longer conflicted with The Metallic Onslaught out of Geneva) and then he changed the name to The Last Exit for the Lost (named after one of Seriah's favorite Field's of the Nephilim songs). The change was made due to his wanting to include more than just Metal on the show, although it has never lost it's Metal core. "I wanted to have a radio show where you could hear, regularly, everything from classic Mercyful Fate, to Laibach, to Fields of the Nephilim, to Overkill.", stated Seriah about the goal of the show. The shows' musical diversity is currently way beyond that, playing all kinds of Metal, new and old, Goth, Industrial, Punk, Hardcore, Comedy, Indie Rock, and some things that defy categorization completely. The Last Exit for the Lost is one of the longest running Metal shows on the air, has one of the biggest catalogs of music to draw from anywhere, and is unique in many ways due not only to the diversity of music, but because of the strangeness in between.

There have been MANY co-hosts during the years, but the first ones that really took the show in the direction it has gone would be two who went by the names Sloth of the Apocalypse, and The Almighty Monkey. Since then, there have been many characters and co-hosts that have come and gone, some there only briefly, some have stayed for some time. The 'People on the Show' section of this site has the current crop of hosts, co-hosts, and special guests. You can also find early material from the show in the Media section on Best of DVD's, the Retro DVD's, which are all free, are three volumes of early material on the show and it's history.

RussianRouletteIn May and June of 2000, the station moved from College Town in Ithaca up to East Hill. At the time, this was not a welcome change, as the huge, spacious building in College Town was quite simply awesome, and the new building was small and in the middle of nowhere. This however, did change the show in many ways. Silly things that often happened in other rooms of the big building, were now happening on the air. Characters were sent on adventures around the area, something that was never thought of in the more convenient College Town location. In the end, the East Hill location was a good thing for The Last Exit and it's creativity.

The Last Exit for the Lost regularly plays host to bands, who often perform live in studio, both acoustic and electric. The playlist of the show, often consists of more unsigned bands from around the world than larger, more well known bands. The show has always been about bringing out the best and most interesting music, not following the crowd. Oftentimes you will hear stuff here first, and when that is said, it is actually true. It is a unique listening experience in every way. You will also hear plenty of awesome music you WILL NOT hear anywhere else.

The Last Exit, in the past, would also host regular local shows and puts out various DVD series. You can check out our first DVD series, Xtreme Soundscapes, on Vimeo, as well as The Dave and Joe Show. You can also watch shows we booked on our YouTube Performance channel, which is a mix of current bands, and older stuff, as we slowly archive all the shows we filmed.

HollowBodiesLiveMany of the shows from the last few years are archived on this site. You can listen to them in their entirety at any time, see pictures, video recaps, etc. The Last Exit for the Lost has always been on the cutting edge of using the internet, from having a live internet stream WAY before most stations, to utilizing e-mail lists, chat rooms, a webcam, various social networking sites at their inceptions... The Last Exit always strives to be as interactive as possible and stay on the cutting edge of what technology offers.

There used to be a lot of regularly themed shows, but over time, many of them have gone by the wayside. Some are likely to stay around. The 'We Love Satan' show, which was created mocking those who think that people who listen to Heavy Metal by default worship Satan (and actually created in direct response to such a comment) now airs twice a year, once on Easter, and once on the closest Sunday to Xmas. Often it is a bizarre and mocking type of show. The Pre-Anniversary End of the World show had been going on since around 2002 (Now occasionally a Post Apocalypse version), and celebrated the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012. Now this is a common known thing, but back then, it was not, and once again, The Last Exit was way ahead of the curve in it's strange, often mocking, way.

In recent years we have added in Russian Roulette shows, Birthday Olympics and other oddities. Some work and evolve, others die a merciful death. In the end, it is all about good music, entertainment, and fun.

On March 16, 2014 we moved into our new building at 604 East Buffalo St in Ithaca, down in college town again. This huge new building has allowed us to have bands perform full out, as well as lead to much more innovation in what we can do on the air. 

In March 2020, a week before Lockdown, the Last Exit was forced to move to a pre-recorded format. This allowed us to expand our guests on the show, since having a show length musical guest via Skype was now far more feasible. The show continues in a slightly more produced format as a pre-recorded weekly show. Occasional live shows may happen in the future. 

In 2021, with WVBR still basically Locked Down, we constructed our own performance space for bands, with a better setup, lighting, and sound. This will also double as an affordable recording studio as well in the future. More info on the space and how to get your band booked can be found here

As of 2023, the show continues to evolve on a regular basis. Most weeks there are themes to the shows, as well as plenty of new music mixed with the old. 



Just Joe Wingdingboatbottom I

IMG_7013.jpgJust Joe has been a part of The Last Exit since November of 2003. Once a very regular co-host, due to other factors in his life, he is now there usually bi-monthly. Just Joe has been through a lot on the show. He is kind of the jack of all trades, and sometimes court jester. Joe is a fantastic camera man, and is Seriah's go-to guy. He also tends to have his crazy, or stupid, moments, and bad things happen. He's also very afraid of spiders... and jelly beans. Joe is also our resident monkey at times. The varied stuff that Joe has gone through on the show, both good and bad, is simply beyond the belief of anyone who has not been witness to it. Joe's musical taste is diverse, but he loves underground and local bands, and is fond of female fronted bands as well. 

You can see a compilation of Joe's best work in a film we complied a few years back called, The Best of Just Joe. Watch on YouTube for free.


EVDE.V.D., which stands for Evil Villainous Dude, or Electric Vodka Dude originally, or, really, whatever you want it to stand for. His first show with us was September 11, 2005. He took a break for a few years from around mid-2011 till mid-2014. Now he's back as one of our most regular co-hosts. EVD loves to torment some of our other co-hosts, Just Joe and Nathan in particular, and loves science. He is also rather fond of puns and bad jokes. Musically, his taste is all over the place. He's sort of the mad scientist of the show...

Seriah Azkath - Your Host

394192 10100514521446695 414202 49461488 685848865 nSeriah took the reins of the show back in 1994. It was The Metal Cage when he took over, and he changed it to The Last Exit for the Lost within a year or two. He did that to make the name of the show better represent the diversity that he wanted to create on the show. Although the show will always have a Metal core, he said he wanted to have a show where he could play Mercyful Fate, Overkill, Laibach, The Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim, and whatever else he felt like throwing in, without seeming out of format. Seriah also hosts Where Did the Road Go?, co-hosts The Metallic Onslaught, , and every month or so, hosts a Dealer's Choice Show. He has a dry, if slapstickish sense of humor, like to prank his co-hosts and guests, loves the paranormal and occult, and tries to create a show that is unlike anything else on the air anywhere. Musically, he is partial to female fronted bands, thrash, old-school death metal, dark music, dissonence, and comedy music. He also loves just plain weird music sometimes. Seriah is also extremely supportive of underground and local bands. The name, The Last Exit for the Lost comes from one of his favorite bands, Fields of the Nephilim. It's the final song on their second album. You can find Seriah's Facebook here, feel free to follow or add him as a friend.
