Wazzup Metalheadz!


Welcome to the Metal Express Radio Weekly Update!


With frigid temperatures and snow hitting the Northern Hemisphere, we at Metal Express Radio are trying to keep things hot and loud!

Metal Express Radio Premiered a New Weekly Show Last Week!
Metal Express Radio rolled out a new show, starting last week, called
BEFORE THEY CALLED IT HEAVY METAL … 70’s HARD ROCK REVISITED.  The focus of this new show is to pay tribute to the forefathers of Heavy Rock music who paved the way for the creation of Heavy Metal.  Featured will be the likes of Black Sabbath, Kiss, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, as well as lesser known bands of that era.  The show runs 2 times each Monday at 15:00 and 21:00 Central European Time (9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time).  Be sure to check it out!

Metal Express Radio On Tour With Kamelot!

Read the full special feature – comprehensive gig reviews, a hazardous journey, flying dogs, Bon Jovi sing-alongs, and everything the heart may wish for.

More Consistent Show Times!
The Hairball John Show, as well as the Hairbanger’s Hairspray Show, will now both air at 15:00 and 21:00 Central European Time (9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time) on their scheduled days to remain consistent with airings of our other programs.  Hopefully this will make it easy to remember when trying to catch your favorite Metal Express Radio Shows!
