Yep…the ‘Request-line’ is now OPEN for the next 48 hours!

Last week’s show proved beyond any reasonable doubt, that you guys and girls know your rock music. It’s always great to play you the sort of rock that you don’t often get to hear. More of the same this week, please. If we’ve got it, we’ll play it!

Here’s last week’s playlist:

Here’s our interview with Delain’s Charlotte Wessels ahead of their tour of North America and UK

Busily packing for Delain’s next foray into North America, Charlotte Wessels took time out to chat with The Classic Rock Show about ‘The Human Contradiction’ album, released earlier this year.

Delain are on the eve of celebrating Charlotte’s tenth year with the group – something which is not lost on Charlotte and she makes comment on in the interview – and since signing with Napalm Records they have been able to make and stand by their own decisions. The independence that they have been offered by the label has reaped rewards as ‘The Human Contradiction’ is their most rounded and polished album to date; the songwriting and musicianship is there for all to see and hear.

Charlotte also shared her thoughts on this freedom that Delain now have over their songwriting, as well as her feelings towards the work that the Sophie Lancaster Foundation continue to do in raising awareness of prejudice and intolerance.

This, together with hearing how much Delain are looking forward to returning to North America and later to the UK in November, makes for an interesting interview with one of the most recognised voices in rock, let alone the genre of Symphonic Metal.
