Man! This show was an education for me too. So many awesome bands here that I'd never heard before.
Here's what I'm going to do and what I hope you will as well...especially if you're a metal fan.
Take these singles here as a start up. Listen to ALL the songs. Each and every one of them. Decide which bands you LOVE, like, think are ok...and dislike. Leave out the last category and start off with the ones you LOVE. Go after them. Find more of their songs...their albums and listen to them.
This, THIS is the true joy of being a true music lover. Discovering new you've never heard of's such a thrill! :)

Hope you enjoy this show. This one took a while getting together.
PLEASE do let me know what you think...and do send this to every metal/rock fan you know. By the way...though the genre was called New Wave Of British Heavy Metal...not all bands are really "METAL" so if you're scared of that word...don't be. These bands are BRILLIANT! :D

I'm hoping to see a lot of comments this time around guys. If you don't tell me what you think, how can I know what you want in the weeks to come. So comment down here :) and let me know :)

Right is now time for me to say...take care...and Good Night! :)
This is your Musicman Mihir...signing off!
