Presenting to you: Mercury, our awesome bot

When we first created RadioMeltdown, we came across the question: What should we name our bot?

Many ideas came to mind, but Mercury was the name we gave to it. The reasons we named it Mercury are the fact that Mercury is the only metal that is liquid at room temperature (therefore, melted) and the fact that Mercury was the messenger of the Roman Gods in ancient mythology (Also known as Hermes in Greek mythology). 

Those two reasons combined seemed perfect as Mercury's main function is to announce the songs that are being played by our awesome DJs in our chat room (you can access it through our webpage: and it fit perfectly with our station name.

Since then, I've been looking for a avatar for Mercury. I came across many different pictures all over the internet:

This one was way too serious and nothing to do with music really...

This one, if you are not an astronomer or astrophysicist or something of the kind, can look like any other billion planets in the universe...

I quite like this one (but i am a nerd and a geek) and once again nothing to do with music really, is there?

That was when browsing 9gag i found the perfect avatar for Mercury. All credits to whoever posted it on 9gag!

I love it!!!!!
