This Week’s Guest DJ: ST. JAMES!

This week’s Guest DJ host is Jimmy Jacobs from St. James!

Back in the ‘90s, THE RODS drummer/producer Carl Canedy was part of a band based in New Haven, Connecticut. ST. JAMES featured vocalist John James and brothers Robert Jacobs and James Jacobs on bass and guitar, respectively. This lineup recorded some demos that grew to a large collection of songs over time. The band played live shows with a different drummer, but never got to tour with Canedy due to his schedule as an in-demand producer. They also never released the songs properly– until now. Regarding the cache of songs, Canedy remarked, “I listened to a bunch of the songs and felt like this stuff was just too good to never be released. The writing, the playing, the production, even after all this time they still hold up.”

After Jimmy Jacob’s Guest DJ show we’ll spin a handful of tracks from the new album Resurgence. The album should appeal to fans of DOKKEN, POISON, BON JOVI, NELSON, CINDERELLA, WARRANT and BANG TANGO.

Tune in at 15:00 and 21:00 CET/ 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EST this Friday to hear the show!

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
