What really leads to the creation of a radio is the sweet taste of discovery. Those who listen to our shows know that I do spend a good amount of my days grumbling about the fact that despite the Internet, it is very difficult for bands to export their music in foreign countries. That‘s what [...]
The world of metal is truly fascinating. At the same time an extremely close minded microcosm when it comes to defending a band, a label or an album (one day the world will accept that “Reign In Blood” and “The Number Of The Beast” are overrated), it can also be surprisingly open-minded to include in [...]
The very first conversation I had with Shyanna about rock’n’roll lead us to discuss our favorite bands. When her turn arrived, without batting an eye she spat out : “I love TOTO”. I ask her to confirm and she does: “Yeah, TOTO”. The completely has been sextet whose claim to fame is boring radio friendly [...]

This was an understandable decision given their stakhanov-like schedule. And then, after the shock of the [...]
Some interviews needs to be done, for the simple reason that you know they are going to bring you something that they are going to really deepen your musical vision.
