About

Metal Meyhem Radio has been on the internet airwaves since 2016 and has been making great strides in achieving it's original goal of showcasing some great up and coming talent with over 250 "promoted bands" (promoted bands are bands that are either unsigned or signed to independent labels) and can currently be heard via our website  http://metalmeyhemradio.com ‌, all the major internet radio directories such as TuneIn, MyTuner and Radio.net and via our own mobile apps and Amazon Alexa.


Promoted bands have regular slots within our regular daily rotation, as well as FOUR dedicated 1 hour slots each day, and each band also has a profile page on http://metalmeyhemradio.com/artists/promoted-bands-147/1


We have regular links with most major record labels and PR Companies, and often punch above our weight by interviewing many large and established bands, as well as staying up to date with brand new releases.


As a South Coast radio station, we look to support the local music scene, but promoting the events, and also by actually showing up, and speaking/ interviewing the bands, as well as provide show reports... we have recently added a new monthly show called The LARS Live Show which is a show that plays the live recordings from some of the past LARS Promotions  live events.  LARS Promotions themselves are a small South Coast based Live Promotions Company.


Another group we are looking to work with are based in the heart of Portsmouth itself,  The Swarming , and are now putting on regular events at Southsea's leading music venue The Edge of the Wedge.

Our regular shows  look to showcase new talent, for example;


Saturday Late Breakfast with JayRock every week showcases over 20 BRAND NEW tracks by bands that have often never received any radio play before.


J.C's Kick Ass Rock Show each week features up and coming artists from both the UK and the US. 




Both Elliot's Ritual of the Fourth,



and The Pappa D Show often feature lesser known artists from across Europe,



along with new comer Lauren's Woman Crush Wednesday which looks to celebrate females within the heavy music indutry.

We also syndicate show's from;

After 7 years of running the show on Pheonix FM in Yorkshire, Gemma has found a new home right here on Metal Meyhem Radio.

Brian Basher's Hard Rock Nights. For over 7 years Brian has been showcasing the bands you know and love, and some you probably forgot about

As well as Jon Harris Interviews: on The Rock Metal Podcast; We have been airing Jon Harris exclusively for almost two years.


Starting in 2015, the UK regulatory radio body Ofcom has been conducting some trials of small scale DAB radio, in which Portsmouth was one of the first.
We won a space of the Portsmouth area mulitplex and went "Live" at the end of January 2018 broadcasting across Portsmouth and the South Coast at 48Kbps AAC v2, and in doing so we joined other small independent radio stations broadcasting on DAB+ digital radio....but we need your help.


Ofcom have extended the trials of Small Scale DAB for a further 2 years...which means we can continue broadcasting on DAB Digital Radio until March 2020!!


Metal Meyhem Radio has always been, and will always remain a Not for Profit Radio Station, our purpose will always be to showcase up and coming talent...but we need to pay our bills to continue being a DAB station in Portsmouth.



The UK does not have another Ofcom licenced independent community Active Rock/ Metal station that focuses on independent music, the only other two are owned by a commercial operator (Planet Rock & Kerrang) .
