Rat Rod Band Picture 2023

Formed in the fall of 2016, Rat Rod is the father/son duo of Mark and Brice McCarty on lead and rhythm guitars respectively, Mike Smith on vocals, LJ on Bass. and Harry Rosa on drums. These Philadelphia area musicians have a true love and respect for old-school Rock ‘n Roll and R&B, as passed through the conduit of Australian stalwarts AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, The Angels, Jet, and Airbourne, with a dose of GN’R thrown in just for good measure. You will find in Rat Rod a band of individuals who pay homage to the music by staying true to the formula, yet adding their own twist and sensibilities.

This Friday the band take over the airwaves at Metal Express Radio to play ten of their favorite and most influential Hard Rock tracks. After the show we will play a selection of songs off their rereleased album Four on the Floor.

15:00 and 21:00 Central Europe

  • Stig G. Nordahl

    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..."
