WHAT THE! This is the first time ive stumbled across a heavy metal broadcast in New Zealand (proper metal, not that rock stuff). This is amazing that the first song I hear is Gamma Ray. Just got back from seeing them live in Europe.

Speaking of which. I have just come back home and need some money desperately. There has been a bit of interest on my Metal Clearance auction on trademe however not as much as there could be. I was wondering if you can advertise anywhere on your site for this auction. It is an old collection and my tastes have gotten even heavier. Either as a link in a blog post or on the show itself? Either way, you have just earnt yourself a new listener and I look forward to what you guys have to play.




Thankyou and metal on \m/
