“Hairball John is a fan of Hair Metal and Rock, and that's what makes his show more like a celebration of the genre. He gives you a point of view others don't consider. With the interviews that he personally obtains and the depth of his music catalog, it widens our play list and engages listeners. His views inspire listeners to dig into their feelings about the music, and that's what it's all about. ”
