How did you get started doing this show?

I have always been a rabid guitar music fan--mainly rock, fusion, and quality metal. My passion for seeking out new music has led me to discover many obscure guitar talents from all over the world. When I started graduate school in 1999, I interned and made a demo tape for the local college station, 88.5 WRUR, which they liked enough to give me a show. In 2003, I invited my good friend Bob Stewie, aka Heavy Metal Bob, who owns a local CD shop in upstate New York that specializes in all genres of metal and hard rock from around the world, to join me. Since we started the show, WRUR expanded by hooking up with local PBS station WXXI, giving us an even wider audience.
