Lou Brutus rocks the 103GBF airwaves every weeknight starting at 10pm with hardDrive XL and every Sunday night at 7 with the Weekend 103 edition of hardDrive.

I am proud to announce hardDriveRadio  is planning to air major artist interviews speaking on the topic of bullying.  It goes without saying what a huge international problem this evil phenomenon has grown to become.  Every day in the news we hear of  kids, some as young as 12,  who decide to take their lives.    Online bullying has driven these  kids to make a horrible decision.  In most cases, they are too afraid to talk to their parents or reach out for help.

October is Stop A Bully month. Over the course of the past several months,  Lou has been conducting interviews to get words of encouragement and stories of  bullying endured by some of the biggest rock stars in our format.   Some of these stories are heart-wrenching, like Brann Dailor of  Mastodon, who’s teen sister Skye’s suicide inspired an album,  to artists like Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Brent Smith of Shinedown who wrote songs about this serious topic.

A special STOP A BULLY  edition of hardDrive will air Sunday night October 6th,  while the nightly hardDrive XL  will air  interviews the week of Oct 14-17 and will spotlight more interviews throughout the month.

To name just a few of the stars you will be hearing from:

Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots, Slipknot’s Joey Jordison,  Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch,  Brent Smith of Shinedown, Rob Zombie, David Draiman of Disturbed and Device, In This Moment’s Maria Brink, Alter Bridge and Slash’s  Myles Kennedy, Brann Dailor of Mastodon, Seether’s Shaun Morgan,  members of P.O.D., Korn and more!

I hope you will join Lou and the hardDrive family in trying to get the word out and that there are programs to help some younger listeners and their parents  who just feel like all hope is gone.

Sharing   www.stopbullying.gov  Or 800-273-TALK can be a great start to finding hope.
