In the first hour, legendary former Judas Priest guitarist KK Downing drops in to discuss his new range of fragrances for Rockers, Metal for Men and Metal for Women.

KK also chooses two of his favourite Priest classics
Also in part 1, House of Lords vocalist James Christian looks at the band’s stellar new album “Indestructible”, their tenth to date, released as the current line up celebrates its tenth anniversary. You’ll also hear two new tracks chosen by James.
The second hour kicks off with a chat with renowned guitar hero Tracey “Spacey T” Singleton, formerly of Sound Barrier, Fishbone, and Mother’s Finest, and now playing 8-string guitar with Praise The Dead, a power duo whose sound is simultaneously melodic and crushingly heavy. The band has just released “The Heavy”, the first of 3 EPs, and Tracey gives the low down on this exciting new project. Tracey also pays tribute to Phil Lynott, revealing that Sound Barrier approached the Lizzy legend’s management to ask him to produce an album for them.
