About The RT Rock Show -
The RT Rock Show have been plugging away for a number of years now. It was when Mr Carlo Flori decided to join longtime host Martyn Kelly a few years back that things really started to take shape.
With a combined love of rock and metal music stretching from AOR to Extreme Metal, the guys feel like they have a show that will appeal to all.
The guys like to have a balance between playing great local and up and coming bands along with all the big new tracks from the genre heavyweights. This along with regular interviews and competition giveaways make up a typical show.
The show can be found on Radio Tircoed 106.5FM every Monday night between 8 and 10pm.
