We shall be rocking the airwaves on both Christmas Day and Boxing Day at 8pm. On Christmas day we have a festive feel to the show with plenty of rocking Christmas tunes.  There is the usual sprinkling of new tunes and plenty of news about what’s happening in the world of rock and metal. On Boxing […]

   This week we’re very proud to say we’ve managed to get one of the best interviews of the year, with Seattle band Queensrÿche. I secured an interview with singer Todd La Torre & guitarist Michael Wilton (at their show at Rock City…read my review here , my initial 10 minutes ran to 30 minutes […]

Sex, Cake & Rock ‘n Roll !!! No band has divided opinion like KORN, truly innovative when they burst onto the Metal scene almost 20 years ago. On this week’s show we have a special three song taste of their new album ‘The Paradigm Shift’ which is certainly a return to form. We also have […]

What can we say? It’s been a productive two weeks since the last shows.  We’ve plastered all over Face Book/Twitter the news about Lincoln band Lock Up Laura releasing their debut album Running In The Dark and how anticipated it was. Well, now it’s out (before Alter Bridge releases their stunning album Fortress!!!) and they’ve […]

As talk of a new high speed rail link continues to feature in the news we thought it was time to give The Rock Train some more horse power….Or guitar power! This week’s show is a damn heavy slab of Metal, we play some new Death Angel, Onslaught, Watain and many more in what has […]

Thursday’s show features 2 special guets we interviewed at Rock City, Nottingham. They are the amazing Vega and Santa Cruz. We met Vega earlier this year at the HRH AOR Festival in Sheffield and it was great to catch up with them again in the East Midlands. They told us all about their latest album […]

  Exactly 1 year ago this week we were sent a request to play a couple of songs by a young local band, Lock up Laura. The two songs were Crashing Down and Dreaming of Insomnia. We liked the tracks and ended up playing both of them on the show. since then we have stayed […]

It says something when we are too busy to celebrate our own 50th edition. Yes, the Rock Train has chugged its way through 50 shows over the past 2 years. We would like to thank everyone who has appeared on the show as guests, presenters, studio helpers, button pushers, cake buyers, the amazing bands whose […]

As we near our 50th show its time for some reflection on what the show(s) have achieved in a very short time. We have gone from one show every other week to two shows every other week, primarily to accommodate all the extra good material we have built up. Acoustic sessions, festival specials, a nod […]

This week The Extra Carriage welcomes aboard a host of lovely ladies. The only chaps allowed on the show this week are Mark and Kev and some assorted hairy guitarist blokes. We wanted to show that the term ‘female fronted band’ is silly. If the band is good, it doesn’t matter who fronts it, male […]
