Winner of the Week 1: Kevin Weatherly — The KROQ-LA program director, who single-handedly broke such alterna-hitmakers as Bush and the Goo Goo Dolls, has temporarily moved East to overhaul former classic rock and sister station WXRK-NY.

Winner of the Week 2: Lou Barlow — The indie hero scores a Top 40 hit this week with ”Natural One,” the first commercial single from side project Folk Implosion. Meanwhile, his day-job band, Sebadoh, has yet to crack the bottom 40.

Headbanger of the Week: Pat Boone — The squeaky-clean crooner plans to record Pat Boone in a Metal Mood, a set of heavy-metal classics including ”Stairway to Heaven.” What’s next? Debbie Boone Interprets the Songs of Hole?
