Clear Rock | Hard Drive with Lou Brutus

Hard Drive with Lou Brutus

Hard Drive with Lou Brutus

The year was 1996. The date was the 4th day of July. The tattered remnants of the hard music community of these once proud United States were clinging to shattered dreams and the nearly forgotten remnants of glory in a rock radio world that had seemingly forgotten how to play things that didn’t suck.

It was during these bleak times a radio show burst upon the scene. A radio show that would help put extreme new rock music on the broadcast map. A radio show that would save America itself. The radio show was hardDrive.

Since its birth, hardDrive has become a respected and influential extreme rock (for those you who don’t know what this is, suffice to say it’s a cross between hard rock and modern rock) radio show in broadcast history. Hosted since its inception by the award winning Lou Brutus, the show has constantly defined what new hard music is all about. hardDrive has given listeners across the continental United States and Alaska their first taste of bands including Disturbed, Godsmack, Rammstein, Slipknot and tool, among hundreds of others. Week after week, hardDrive interviews virtually every extreme musician that exists. ‘Nuff said. As long as hardDrive is on the air, U.S. citizens are assured inflation will remain low, American prestige will remain high, and extreme rock music will always have a home.

In February 2007, hardDrive‘s popularity continued to grow when the show launched a daily daypart, dubbed hardDrive XL – now on the air 5 hours a night, 5 nights a week nationwide! In September 2011, hardDrive and hardDrive XL producer Roxy Myzal was awarded Radio Contraband‘s “Non-Traditional Rock Programmer of the Year.
