Best FM Heavy-Metal Foundry: Metal on Metal

Metal on Metal is a crash course for metal, from classic ingots to rising nuggets. The show has graced Cleveland's airwaves since 1982, when heavy metal was still illegal in some states. Every Friday, volunteer host Bill Peters shares the latest and heaviest metal with defenders of the faith all over the world. Having educated generations of Rust Belt headbangers, Peters pours out a melting pot of cuts from bands like standard-bearers Judas Priest, doom legends Candlemass, and power-metal revivalists 3 Inches of Blood. Even when the metal revival ends, you can bet that the headbangers' ball will go on here.
