Hello my name is David Castagno, the host of RadioScreamer. What makes my show uniquely different from all others on the market is my firsthand experience in the metal music scene of the ’80s and early ’90s. When you listen to RadioScreamer you will hear personal stories and insight that you can get nowhere else! You will be transported to L.A., both past and present, as we regularly feature guest artists from the era, many of whom I share a personal history or friendship with.
I started my music career in Los Angeles in 1981 as lead singer of a band called Screamer. We played all the Hollywood clubs including The Roxy, The Whisky, Gazzarri’s and The Troubadour and I personally watched bands like Motley Crue, Ratt, W.A.S.P., Poison, Guns N’ Roses and Warrant grow up on the Sunset Strip. In 1987 I began publishing Screamer Magazine, which started as a music magazine designed to cover and foster L.A.’s vibrant music scene and in no time at all we were interviewing the biggest bands in the industry including all the above mentioned along with Ozzy, Def Leppard, Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Metallica, KISS…well you get the idea. The backstage debauchery and all access experiences are a large part of the RadioScreamer format.
RadioScreamer is fresh, entertaining, insightful and indescribably addictive! Join us each week for an hour of guilty pleasure.
