As far as music goes I’ve always felt extremely lucky to have been brought up in the 60s and 70s, the heart of great music, in ALL genres. Even though I have a deep love of rock and blues, that era threw out great music in every direction and I soaked it all up. I now live for music. My first love has always been rock but right from the start it was the blues tinged rock that grabbed every little piece of heart. Music to me has always been about heart and soul and moving me, physically and emotionally. When I’m on air people know instantly whether I like something, or I LOVE something. I’m often unable to speak immediately after a song because it’s grabbed hold of me so much. More often than not a song I’ve played many, many times too but in that moment, even on air, I am lost, totally gone. That sums me up and especially my relationship with music. Blues (and soul) hold that power over me more than any other form of music. One minute I have a huge smile on my face playing some 60s Rhythm and Blues, dancing around my studio, the next my heart is wrung out from a powerful vocal, a searing guitar lick or stunning piece of gob iron. If that sounds like you, if that strikes the right chord with you and music moves you as it does me, then please join me, every Monday morning for HRH Blues with Beastie, and start your working week in the right way.

My Dad was from Devon and my Mum from Cornwall. I was born in Sierra Leone, but consider myself Cornish as that is where I grew up from a baby! I now live in Essex, where there is a great music scene! Unless I am riding one of my bikes (or fixing them!) I go to the occasional bike rally, listen to rock music and go to as many gigs as I can. One of my favourite bands is Breed 77; I can’t tell you which album or song I like best from them as they are all brilliant in my eyes! There are so many good bands around at the moment I am spoilt for choice!
Road Trip with Clouseau
Born in Hampshire breed in Wales. I have a love of all things Leeds United. Music wise, I would have to say that I’m a big fan of Nirvana, S7X and Iron Maiden/ Try to get to as many local gigs as I can; for me, the local music scene is key to keeping what we all love to listen to, alive. I started radio when I was 16 at a local hospital radio station, but left due to them not wanting a rock show, so I took a long break until til around 2009 before finding internet stations. So as they say the rest is history!
Mad Steve’s Asylum
Like you, I love my music and I especially love searching for and finding new bands. I got into radio mainly to have an outlet to express my love for music and my wanting to share it. There is nothing better than unearthing a hidden gem of a new band. I love all genres of music and listen to anything. Rock and Metal are definitely favourites, hence the show, with probably Symphonic metal being a personal fave. One day I would love to interview Joan Jett, Dave Grohl, Lzzy Hale, Amy Lee, Shirley Manson, amongst others who have been influential on my music tastes.

Mike James Rock Show
Roger Fauske has been presenting rock shows for the last 12 years, initially on Stroud FM before winding up eventually on HRH Radio. Heavy Rock Rapture has evolved into a predominantly Nordic show , which does make total sense when you know that he is half Viking (Norwegian berserking variety). Music comes mainly from Finland, Iceland, Sweden, and Norway, with the Danes and Faroe Islanders making occasional appearances, and as well as the sounds, there are interviews, occasionally even sensible ones. As well as the outstanding music, you also get to hear occasionally comical attempts to pronounce Finnish words. The show goes out monthly these days due to its presenter spending most of his time getting to grips with the world of Quantum and Astrophysics (which ironically make the Finnish words seem relatively straightforward).
Monday Night Takeover – ‘Heavy Rock Rapture’
A female guitar prodigy, at fourteen Chantel was told by major labels that she had a ”great voice, but girls don’t play guitar like that!” Wisely ignoring the comments, she enrolled at the Leeds College of Music and became the first student in the college’s history, to achieve a 100% pass mark, with 18 distinctions. Chantel left with a First Class Honours degree in Popular Music and a coveted prize, the college’s musician of the year award. In previous years, Chantel stepped out in the pro-musician world and her stunning live performances demonstrated that she had the ability to perform rock for the new age, played by a musician born with an effortless virtuosity. Since then, she has built a loyal and growing fan base who follow her every move. If you measure an artist’s prospects by the company they keep, then Chantel has been moving in the right direction. Early in her career, Chantel was invited to perform with Joe Bonamassa, on two of his UK tours. In December 2018, Chantel launched her own Podcast, which has been very successful, earning a place in the iTunes Podcast Charts. Chantel released a rock cover of Lady Gaga’s single ’Stupid Love’ through US record label, Cleopatra Records, in May 2020, which can be downloaded and streamed from all reputable streaming/download websites. At the end of May 2020, Chantel was asked by Hard Rock Hell Radio to present a 2 hour show on the Bank Holiday Monday, following this, she was asked to be a regular weekly presenter every Monday morning. Throughout lockdown, Chantel performed a weekly live stream, the ‘Shed Sessions’, which streamed every Saturday at 5pm for over a year and in August 2021, she released 2 albums featuring music performed on the ‘Shed Sessions’. Chantel is writing for her third studio album, and is debuting some of the new tracks on her tour which, is taking place throughout the UK. These are one off shows not to be missed.
Monday Night Takeover – ‘It Goes Up to 11’
My background is as a musician with a massive interest in media too. When I was a kid, I was always making voice tapes and pretend radio shows! For almost 20 years. I played guitar in the popular UK metal band I.C.O.N, touring the world and meeting lots of incredible musicians and rock fans. We worked very hard. I have toured extensively and played shows with Geoff Tate, Udo Dirkschneider, Anvil, Blaze Bayley, Breed77, Warrior Soul, Witchfynde and many more brilliant bands and artists over the years. I am also an experienced voice over artist – I have voiced national adverts and campaigns, local radio ads, including BBC Radio, businesses, parodies, and narrated short films. I have been immersed in rock culture, and radio since I was young, and I am fascinated with rock history. I am so happy to be part of Hard Rock Hell Radio, and present my show every week. It’s a constant thrill, with the best damn soundtrack in the world!
