CitizenWire COLUMN: You can find a tremendous variety of human behavior on LA Talk Radio (www.latalkradio.com) but it is the most varied on Sheena Metal’s radio shows. With three programs on the air for a total of 14 hours a week, Metal is one of the busiest voices of the station, which is both a live and an iTunes destination for listeners.
“For people interested in interviews, commentary, outrageous viewpoints, humor, paranormal activity and the social scene, these shows are the place to be,” states Ms. Metal. “Plus, every show is like a virtual interactive demonstration of what makes people tick,” she adds with a smile.
Airing Monday through Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. Pacific Time is the Sheena Metal Experience. “This is a show that rips the veil off the human sideshow to expose Homo sapiens in all their glory,” notes Metal. The show producers have described it as talk radio the way it was meant to be: unscripted, unpredictable, and equal parts hilarious and humanistic. Each week, she interviews movie stars, TV icons, Broadway legends, studio heads, writers, doctors, chefs, shark experts and ghost hunters…just to name a few.
Airing on Tuesdays from 3 to 5 p.m. (Pacific) is Haunted Playground. Along with co-host Danielle Egnew, the program is “a cornucopia of ghosts, monsters, aliens, the paranormal and other things that go bump in the night,” says Metal.
Airing on Thursdays from 2 to 4 p.m. (Pacific) is Music Highway, a music/talk hybrid, now in its sixth year on the air. The focus is on independent music in all its many genres: rock, country, folk, goth, electronic, dance, urban, and more.
Within hours of each program’s conclusion, the entire show is offered for free in the Podcast section of Apple’s iTunes.
