Presenting Into the Pit, 10pm til 12 midnight

A keen music fan since before he could talk, John experienced a Zen awakening, on hearing Metallica, accompanied by heavy chords and even heavier lyrics. John was there at the “Golden Age” of metal, when wearing leather and chains wasn’t only for Mardi Gras, and he is sure he will be there at the re-birth of Metal. John eats, sleeps and breathes metal. Usually easy going and mild mannered, he transforms into a metal demon when he hears a power chord and a double bass kick, and loves nothing more than finding himself in the middle of a pit at a metal gig.

Into the Pit. Thursdays 10 pm to 12 midnight
