Chas Byrne's Rock Show

Thursdays from 9pm to 11pm

It's all about one thing. Rock Music. Everything from Led Zeppelin to You Me At Six. Rock, Metal, Pop Punk, Screamo, Emo, Nu-Metal, etc. As long as it has a tune you can sing along to. We have the latest rock news, tour dates and interviews plus reports from red carpets and festivals to bring you the best rock music old and new that there is.

About Chas

Chas has been broadcasting since 2000, joining Express four years ago. He started by playing drums in a band, which lead to being part of a  local band show on the radio then 'sidekick' across the desk on shows than his own show and hasn't looked back!

Favourite Song - Anything rock. Simple as that.

Favourite Gig - I do like a bit of theatrics, so Alice Cooper or Babymetal. But for sheer energy, I'd say Skillet

Favourite Film - Guardians Of The Galaxy or a spot of Deadpool 

Favourite Place In Portsmouth - Ferry Terminal (mainly because I have recently discovered the channel hop thing to France)
