Screamer Magazine

Screamer Magazine, "The Loudest Mag on The Planet," was created by David F. Castagno in October 1987. The publication started out as a vehicle in which to promote local rock bands in the Los Angeles area. The magazine's popularity spread quickly and almost immediately garnered the attention of many major labels as well as many groups on those labels. By early 1988 Screamer conducted interviews with such notable acts as Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne and others. In 1992 Castagno sold a controlling interest in the magazine to McMullen & Yee Publishing, which was eventually acquired by Primedia. In 1994 Castagno parted ways with his new publishing company, but was given the magazine to continue publishing on his own. However, the musical landscape had changed so much he decided to close the doors in May 1994. He later founded Castagno Entertainment Group, a personal artist management firm and Nasty Casty Records, an independent record label. Castagno also hosts a radio program called RadioScreamer, which plays '80s and early '90s rock and metal and has featured interviews with such bands as Def Leppard, Ratt, Warrant, Faster Pussycat and BulletBoys. In the spring of 2011 Castagno decided to digitize his archive of vintage magazines and re-launch an online version of Screamer Magazine.[1]
