  • Felix says:

    Hey Rich Rock I just wanted to wish you guys a Happy new year and just to tell ya Still listening to your station and banging the noggin !! May ya have many more years of this great station of awesome music!! Keep Rockin Rich!!

  • Robert Lionheart says:

    All Hail Metal Shop Rocks!!! Always love the mix of great songs! Please make sure to market your station & site across the web! There are lots of free sources to reach headbangers and any 80s fan will love MSR. Good online radio stations have fallen away over the years because there are so many music options now so only aggressive sites who market themselves get remembered to be played. Here’s to another decade of great music and success for Metal Shop Rocks!!!!

    Trying to figure out how to get an app put on my facebook to connect me from there Can anyone help me Love it! Glad I found you on the computer!

  • MichaelJ says:

    I actually have albums that were played at the radio stations during the Metal Shop days with all the interviews etc.

  • Joe says:

    Hey, my name’s Joe. I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Honduras in 2009. The U.S. government eventually decided to close the program in Honduras due to the violence, but while I was there I met an amazing artist who creates original hand-made woodwork, all with a heavy metal theme.

    His name is Gabriel, but everybody knows him as Toto. He’s an incredibly solid guy (comes from a great family, has strong values, and INSANE talent) and I always wanted to try and help connect him to buyers in the U.S and around the world.

    I can provide a lot more context about the situation in Honduras and what everyday people need to overcome to survive, but I’ll save that for another time.Whenever you get the chance, check out his Facebook group where he is the mastermind (Toto’s the guy in the white T-shirt pointing in the upper left corner). If it all possible, I would love to help this awesome dude rise above the circumstances that he was born into and elevate him to the level that he works so hard to be at.

    I absolutely love Metal Shop. I hope you and yours had a great holiday season. I’ve been listening for years and that’s not going to change anytime soon. Each song represents a different memory from back in the day. Turning 45 in March, I am so lucky to have grown up in an age with such great music. Actually feeling sorry for kids these days with what they have to grow up with. Always having Metal Shop or Hair Band Radio on with anything I’m doing at home, my wife got me one of the coolest and most useful gifts I think she’s ever come up with, this past Christmas. She got me a Bose bluetooth speaker so I can literally take Metal shop with me anywhere in the house or garage. Working in the garage, at my desk on the computer, or on the patio enjoying a cold one (or 10), you’re right there with me! Keep the great tunes (and fun memories) flowing!
    Your friend,

  • Cora says:

    I honestly could not get through my days without Metal Shop!
    Thank you for putting out such a consistently fantastic set list and keeping us updated on all things metal.

  • Metal Matt says:

    Wingwee J. Malmsteen – “I’ll See the Light Tonight”? Haven’t heard that one in awhile. I’ll take a slice of that, thanks!

  • Martina in Germany says:

    Hi there! Great work, we love your radio – all the best stuff!! \m/ Thanks for the head banging classics 😀 😀 😀 You should know you have fans here too :))))

  • Jason says:

    I listen to your awesomeness at work at my desk. I’m a software engineer. I have to go to the restroom but you keep cranking the sweet tunes and I don’t want to miss them! 🙂

  • Jason says:

    Is this the same Metal Shop I just found streaming on Tunes Radio? If so, I really liked it…for about 2 days until I realized you have maybe 25 CDs in your collection. Hey, I love Dio, Iron Maiden, Y&T, Judas Priest, and Motley Crue…but you know there’s a lot more to “80s Metal” than them, right?

    • RichRock says:

      Jason, the self-proclaimed radio critic. We heard about you. If you listened for 2 days straight, you should know the songs we play come from 147 different albums, not 25. Radio by design is for the masses and METAL SHOP plays music the majority of our listeners want to hear. Like it or not, Maiden, Priest, etc. ruled 80’s metal and they are well represented here. There are a million Internet stations available for you to listen to Jason… help yourself to them.

      • Dries says:

        I’ve listening to Metal Shop for about a year now, all the fucking time.
        And I love it!
        But a tiny bit more variation wouldn’t harm. Just more songs from the same bands.
        Keep up the great work, fucking love Metal Shop!

  • Robert Lionheart says:

    Congrats on your own site! Been listening to MSR for a decade! Don’t forget to play your Testament, Warlock, Armored Saint, Metal Church, Exodus and the lesser known metal heroes of the 80s. If possible, play more LIVE stuff from the 80s concerts!

    • RichRock says:

      Thanks Robert! 10 years… you have been there since almost day one… really appreciate you listening. All the bands you noted are always in rotation and represented here. We have the live stuff recorded in the 80’s streaming as well.

      • Robert Lionheart says:

        Heck yeah! In the ancient days of yore, I found Live365 through my nigh-forgotten AOL account right after I switched from 56k to some weak early version of ADSL. Back then there were a couple metal/rock stations on Live365, but METAL SHOP stood out big time. There was a good Eurometal station that introduced me to bands from across the pond I never heard of, but that station didn’t last while yours keeps on ROCKING HARD! I’m throwing horns at you Rich Rock! Loving the clarity of sound from your site.

  • Scott Underwood says:

    Just letting you know, i love Metal Shop! Dont change a thing, you are playing all the right stuff. Everything i used to listen to back then and even stuff i loved i kinda forgot about i havent heard in a while! Thanks for what you do!!! Scott

  • JP Dywelska says:

    I love strolling down memory lane with some great old jams. I start my morning off everyday with MetalShop and always seem to get something in my head for the day I cant seem to shake. A band I heard once I believe a long time ago was Flotsam and Jeatsam havent heard much more from them on your show so I was hoping to hear some Doomsday for the Deceiver songs a bit more. thanks in advance bro keep it rockin!!!

  • Justin Sawyer says:

  • Gabriella Corvux says:

    Hey, Rich Rock my friend and I simply love your radio Congrats man. I’d like to listen more W.A.S.P (Sleeping in the Fire) Rock on\

  • James Anderson says:

    Hi Rich,
    Rock on, man! \m/ Thanks for such a kick-ass station. (And you’re a fellow Portlander!) There are always decent bands around, but nothing beats 80s metal. Soundtrack of my misspent youth, I guess. Just wondering if there is an online playlist available? I was listening yesterday afternoon (8/16) and a really cool Armored Saint song came on, but I was at work so couldn’t check my app. I’m pretty sure it was from Delirious Nomad, and after listening to some clips I wanna say it was “Aftermath”, but can’t say for sure. Any help?

    • RichRock says:

      Hello James,
      Thanks for listening to METAL SHOP! Yes, I’m in the Portland area… broadcasting almost 10 years now. I am glad you like the station. That was most likely ‘Aftermath’ you heard, although there are several tracks from that record currently in rotation (Long Before I Die, Nervous Man and Over the Edge).

  • James K. says:

    Got some METAL SHOP going this morning to get my blood flowin’! Thanks for a great station, Rich Rock!

  • Patrick says:

    I am a somewhat new listener, but I think your station is great. I’m 43 and still listening. I had a large collection of good 80’s Metal until I joined the United States Marine Corps. When I got back, it was all gone. Most of them were cassettes and not replaceable. So it is good to hear a station “You” that plays the music I love. I don’t know when it happened, but it got into my blood and I still listen everyday.

  • Joseph says:

    Great Metal Music!! Please play something from Krokus.Thanks. This is Joseph from the island of Malta in the heart of the Meditteranean sea.

  • Jorge Ferreira says:
