Hair Metal Mixtape recently celebrated its 100th show, and there’s no better occasion to talk about this fantastic program. The show is hosted by the one and only Gabe Anel and airs live on Radio Free Brooklyn on Saturday nights from 9pm to 11pm EST (NY time!). It features band exclusives and interviews, as well as a curated mixtape during the last hour and a half, showcasing new, current, and classic Hair, Glam, Sleaze, and Hard Rock from the 80s, 90s, 2000s, and up to today!
You may be wondering why we’re talking about a radio show, when we live in a streaming world where everyone can listen to music whenever they want. Who needs a radio these days, right? Well, there’s some truth to that, but let me tell you: Hair Metal Mixtape is not just any random radio show. It’s the show that every fan of glam, sleaze, hair, hard rock and metal simply should not miss.
During every single episode, Gabe Anel not only guides you through the biggest hits from the genre that we all know, but also delivers deep cuts and introduces brand new bands from the scene. And in our opinion, that’s the most valuable thing you can get from this show. Thanks to Gabe’s enthusiastic and professional approach, you’ll always discover great new music from both emerging and established artists in the genre. If you’re looking to explore new and fresh music, this is the perfect place for you. In fact, thanks to Hair Metal Mixtape we’ve discovered some amazing bands in the last few years, such as Budderside, Wildstreet, and even Razorbats, just to name a few. Plus, there is always an interview featured in the episode, so you’ll be updated with everything important regarding the guest band.
While it’s true that we can all stream music whenever we want, there’s something special about hearing a recommendation from someone who’s truly dedicated to the genre. That’s why we believe that every glam metal fan should check out this show. If you’re in the US, you can listen to it live on air, but if you’re not, like us, you can simply use the App or go to the Hair Metal Mixtape website and choose any episode you want to hear.
Happy anniversary Hair Metal Mixtape, and thank you for keeping the genre alive and well!
