Host Bob Nalbandian welcomes guests Ian Christe & Howie Abrams. Both Ian and Howie are veterans of the NY metal underground and hardcore scenes since the early ‘80s. Both have achieved great success in a variety of aspects in the music industry from renowned authors & publishers to record executives, radio hosts, and music trade journalists.
