The Hairball John and Friends Radio Show pays homage to 80’s Hard Rock and Heavy Metal from a fan’s perspective.


Each one-hour weekly show is a perfect blend of music, humor, news, personal experiences, and artist interviews.

With over 40 years of living, breathing, and experiencing this music as well as 17years of broadcasting experience, Hairball John has established a devoted following as well as strong relationships with both artists and record labels.

To date, Hairball John has conducted on-air interviews with over 400 artists including Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue), and David Coverdale (Whitesnake) just to shamelessly name-drop a few.

“Hairball John is a fan of Hair Metal and Rock, and that's what makes his show more like a celebration of the genre. He gives you a point of view others don't consider.


With the interviews that he personally obtains and the depth of his music catalog, it widens our playlist and engages listeners. His views inspire listeners to dig into their feelings about the music and that's what it's all about.”
