We've decided to add some new programming to the station. From now on Friday nights at 8 eastern we will be featuring the New Generation Block.
So what exactly do we consider new generation? To put it simply there was a certain sound with 80s metal and hair band music that we love. To discover that so many of the bands that have come out in this millennium have kept that sound and more new bands are coming up every day has been a pleasant surprise. So we want to help our listeners find cool newer music and help the bands find new listeners.
We will also be playing new releases by older bands during this segment, before we put them into regular rotation so bands like Every Mother's Nightmare, Dokken and Bulletboys who are still going strong will be featured as well as we continue this new programming and obtain their new releases!
As we all know bands come and go- some of the bands we will play during the New Generation block may have disbanded or morphed into another few bands by now. Others are brand new and we can't wait to see them grow. Many of the new generation bands are not from the U.S. although good ol' America has it's share; Switzerland, Sweden , Latvia and many other countries abroad have bred a generation of musicians who believe in leather, big hair and pretty guys. Heavy on the sex, drugs, and Rock'n Roll with a whole lot of alcohol thrown in for good measure. That is something that we LOVE! We're also thrilled to see that our station is being played in numerous countries besides the U.S. !
For our first New Generation block, we'll be playing
We're very excitred to bring y'all this new weekly installment of New Generation metal music and look forward to getting to know more of these bands!
