Uriah Heep: Metal Express Radio Airs Part 1 Of Career Retrospective Monday Jan 9th

Norway's Metal Express Radio has issued the following update:

"This week's '70s Hard Rock Revisited show will feature Uriah Heep. Actually, for this Monday's show, we'll feature a track from each of Uriah Heep's first six albums.

Most people probably don't realize that Uriah Heep knocked out 12 (count 'em ... 12!!!) studio albums in the '70s, making them one of the most prolific bands of that era. The band started out a bit bluesy, if not progressive, and evolved as time went on to become a very well-respected hard rock outfit, and certainly one of the true forefathers of heavy metal. 

As mentioned, this week's show will feature one track from each of their first six releases. Next week's show will feature a track from their next six releases from the '70s. No repeat tracks will be played between the early and late shows on Monday, so be sure to tune into both '70s show airings to catch a few moments of hard rock history.

Tune in
 here at 15:00 and 21:00 CET (9:00am and 3:00pm New York City Time) each Monday to relive great musical memories of the distant past!"
