On The Friday Guest DJ Show This Week: PICTURE!


If you say Holland and the first Dutch metal band, which image comes to mind then? Right! We’re talking about Picture! And they’re back stronger and more motivated than ever!

Back in 1979 the story of Picture began –  it was the very first Dutch hardrock band with a “record deal”. With a history of 7 released albums world-wide and extensive tours throughout Europe with a.o. AC/DC, Saxon, Ted Nugent, Rose Tattoo and April Wine. Classic songs like Heavy Metal EarsDiamond dreamerBombers and Eternal Dark (covered later by Swedish metal giants Hammerfall) and highly energetic live performances made Picture a very successful band. Picture paved the way for all other successful Dutch hardrock bands that followed in their footsteps soon afterwards.

Picture released Live – 40 Years Heavy Metal Ears, 1978 – 2018  this year, with a huge tour and a brand new album in the making scheduled for 2019.

Stay tuned as this week’s Guest DJ is Picture‘s Jan Bechtum to present to you 10 of the band’s favorite tracks.

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!

While you wait check out the classic remastered anthem “Eternal Dark” :

    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..."
