About the show

Playing tracks by

Mercyful Fate, Ozzy Osborne, Dio, Mötley Crüe, Dokken and more.

Don't call it hair metal! Long before spandex and hairspray ruined metal in the late 80s the bands were non-conformist, anti-establishment, satanic, epic, and raw. Here's a mix of what metal meant then, when it was only heavy, thrash, or glam. This isn't a best of, it's just the bands, albums, and songs I liked most -- or at least remember most. Part 1 of 2, covering 1980-1984.
