Welcome to the Metal Express Radio Weekly Update!
Metal Express Radio continues to offer you new and exciting contests!!! As the Satriani one has ended, we’ve managed to fill its shoes with another big one. Besides this new contest we hope to announce a third new contest involving another big name act next week! Stay Tuned!
Metal Express Radio and Rhino Records are rolling out a new contest to celebrate the release of Glenn Tipton’s new Edge Of The World CD. Rhino Records is offering up 5 copies of the new CD. Winners will be randomly selected from a pool of entries that contain the answer to the following Tipton Trivia Contest:
For the re-release of Baptizm Of Fire, 2 bonus tracks were included, “Himalaya” and “New Breed.” Who co-wrote the song “New Breed” with Glenn Tipton?
Email the correct answer to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23:59:00 CET (5:59 p.m. EST) on March 24, 2006. 5 winners will be chosen at random from all correct entries received.

For this week’s SPECIAL FEATURE THURSDAY, we’ll pay tribute to the best guitar solos in Metal. Send us your track suggestions today … click the words “Special Feature” on the Web site to find out how or read on to find out more!
Winamp 5.2 And Metal Express Radio!
Not our fault man! Metal Express Radio reported the following issue when streaming Metal Express Radio through the newest Winamp release (5.2) to Nullsoft support last week:
-[in_vorbis] No Artist metadata in stream titles (shows Title only)
Their support department says it will be fixed in the next release, so if you’re using Winamp to stream Metal Express Radio and if not being able to see the artists’ names annoys you like it does us, then rollback to version 5.13 and wait until the next release after 5.2!
