I grew up with classic British rock in the early Seventies, bands like Purple, Sabbath and Zeppelin. Deep Purple's 'In Rock' was the album that really got me into this type of music and my first real gig was seeing the Coverdale/Hughes version of the band in 1974. Many years later, after punk and hair metal had come and gone, I went to my first festival at Donington in 1991, seeing the likes of Metallica and AC/DC in a live environment. That convinced me to try my hand at radio

Born, Birmingham 1957. Quite late getting into music, as parents weren’t that bothered, most of my childhood was spent listening to Music For Pleasure albums (75p from Wollies boys ‘n girls !!) – “Geoff Love and his Orchestra Play Big War Movie Themes” ‘n all that shit….. Then, Secondary school I was introduced to “Pictures At An Exhibition” by ELP – blew my mind, have been a Prog Head ever since…

The Blues is not the easiest thing to define in my book as it is more about an attitude than just a style of playing and many many bands associated with many genres have included Blues songs in their repertoire. I love exploring The Blues from wherever it originates and can't wait to share my favourite tracks with others. I am also in a band myself and I get a real buzz out of playing live. Happiest when playing guitar. So happy that there is still so much music

I’m Smudge (yes it’s my real name) and I was born in the capital when the world was black and white. I remember the T.V only having 3 channels and going off air at midnight, having milk at school, national strikes, blackouts, 3 day weeks and being able to leave your front door open… but we were happy. During all this satanic dark oppression came the first movements of the electron for me…via the flat below it weaved its way through the sash windows

I grew up in the Bay Area, I’m Black Sabbath years old exactly, and I popped out the chute a music enthusiast. I couldn't escape it if I wanted to; Dad was one part of The Band That Stopped the War, mom was an artist eccentric who settled into the melting corners of the Jabberwocky after a decade in the musky art scene of 1950s NYC, and my older brothers dragged me to punk shows as early as 1980. Psychedelic relics and old school punk cultivated my taste and broadened my spectrum. If it's doomy, radically-minded, feminist, loud, abrasive, and a little bit evil for the fun of it, I'm in.

Vinyl junkie.Music geek. Anything along those lines pretty much describes me. I’ve grown up with a massively diverse music taste and love the history as well as the tune behind sound waves!  After studying music and performing for 7 years I took a different turn in my career perspective by getting involved in Media at Uni, and that led me to my current and future passion of Radio!! I’ve been collecting records since the age of 14 and have been supporting Record Store Day 3 years running!

In June 1978 I was 12, like every Thursday night I started to watch Top of the Pops. This episode was different, so different it changed my life. For on the fateful evening Noel Edmonds introduced the next act on to the show, it was AC/DC playing Rock n Roll Damnation. I still don’t know what it was that grabbed me, but whatever it was it never let go. I became so obsessed that my dad bought me the 7” single that weekend shortly followed by the songs mother album“Powerage”.

Pete K Mally is a stand up comedian and author who loves his classic rock and metal. Spending his youth defending his love of rock he gets the hump when high street stores are flaunting AC/DC , Iron Maiden and Ramones T-shirts as simple fashion accessories (we've earned these stripes). He is a regular compere at rock festivals and recently supported The Wayward Sons and The Last Great Dreamers. Now in his forties he openly listens to Poison and is unashamed in this (a little). You can catch him on his 'Not in this dinnertime ' tour across the UK and at a rock festival near you

DJ


Born and bred in Birmingham I grew up the sounds of Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy and Motorhead and my passion for music developed from there. I love all kinds of music, but I gravitate towards the classic era of rock and metal. I love the live music scene and get excited when discovering new bands for the first time. I also love meeting people along the way, the scene is such a great family and united under one banner.

Born in 1996, this kid became nothing but trouble for never fitting in. Growing up around N-Dubz listening, rap writing, football playing morons. I grew up as a rock music, watching wrestling, darts playing outcast. My love from music came from my father, he always had a varied selection of music to flick through, but two albums I would come to love, were Lest we forget, the very best of Marilyn Manson, and Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog flavoured water by Limp bizkit.

DJ


In 2019 I landed in Britain after living 30 years in California and growing up in Philadelphia on the East Coast of the US. My first concert was Joan Jett with the Ramones opening in 1984 in Philly, and 1986 was my first punk show. Some of my music gigs are being a DJ on KALX Radio in Berkeley for decades and touring the world with punk bands, including my own. I throw all flavors of punk at the listeners like so much rotten, strange fruit!

It was a dark time, called 1995, indie and Brit Pop ruled the radio as fellows in ill fitting parkas sang badly about champaign. Then a random meeting involving Our Price, some friends and a bargain bin filled with Megadeth, Metallica and Senser would lead me into another world. 23 years later I'm still there but with added beats from hip hop and electro!

Adam Thomas

DJ


My first musical interest was the grunge movement, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Nirvana etc. 1991, I had cassette with Nirvana’s Nevermind on one side, but what a friend put on the other side is what really grabbed me, Nine Inch Nails – Pretty Hate Machine. Nails were my gateway to discovering the goth and industrial scene, visiting clubs like Underworld, Manchester and Slimelight, London. A few years later I started DJ’ing my own goth /industrial night in my home town Stoke, and later Nottingham. Tune In. Turn On. Burn Out.

I've been a Rock lover as far back as the 80's. From discovering Queen as a nipper to trading tapes with secondary school mates - it turned me into an addict. My roots are firmly steeped in Hard Rock and Hair Metal. In 2006 it pushed me to try DJ'ing at various venues and events (including Eddies). 25 years on, I may have shed the hair but I can still wear eyeliner better than your Mom

I’ve been a DJ since 1979, back then I did a Christmas Party with a Hitachi hifi and I played singles on the turntable and then switched to tape that I had got from grabbing the UK Top 40. Worked for a number of Hospital Radio Stations and did a number of Mobile DJ gigs. Always loved music in all forms. I’m late coming into the Rock Scene but I know what I like anything from Zeppelin to Disturbed and everything in between. However I don’t get Death Metal

From listening to my Dad's Jimi Hendrix, Cream & Roxy Music LP's at an early age and to my subsequent discovery The Who & Judas Priest before the age of 10, Rock Music has always been an integral part of my life. I appreciate many genres of music, but Rock music defines me. I have a passion for Hard Fuelled, Groove Soaked, Heavy, Grungy, Feel Good Rock 'n' Roll. I also have a passion for Jack Daniels so if you hear me slurring on air, please remember it's purely medicinal

I quickly realised in the 70's how dire the radio sounded until Friday nights when the iconic Tommy Vance hosted the Friday Rock Show. I was addicted from then on. Metal was almost never played and then one day in 1981 Motorhead released 'No Sleep 'till Hammersmith' and it smashed in at number one, punching all the lame pop aside. My life has been spent listening to them, the big 4, Thrash, Grunge and All things metal. Pay me enough and I'll show you my Snaggletooth tattoo!

In 1978 I was a snotty 14 year old at School in Wolverhampton, the same year that Judas Priest released Stained Class and Killing Machine. A little explosion went off in my head – BOOM! I suddenly really got music, the faster and darker the better. Over the following 40+ years I have been to hundreds of gigs, big and small, stood in fields soaked to the skin and been squashed down the front. My love for death metal is as strong as ever, I love to discover and listen to new music. I am often seen in the pit these days photographing bands throughout the Midlands.

I’ve been listening to alternative music my entire life, with my first influences coming from my parents. I’d listen to Aerosmith and Guns N Roses, then years later sitting in my cousin’s car while they played me Evanescence and Good Charlotte. From there I forked out into metal core when I was in year 10. Since I was young I knew music would always be close to me and play a very big role in my life, and so working along side it is more than a dream come true. I now spend most of my time listening to Motionless In White, Rammstein and Architects.
