Full Metal Jackie

Not for the faint of heart, Full Metal Jackie’s “Full Metal Jackie” radio show is two hours of fist pounding metal from the frontlines.

Alongside an onslaught of the loudest bands on the planet, she regularly interviews metal’s biggest names, past and present with a mix of classic and new metal music.

Full Metal Jackie began her radio career as a DJ at WSOU Pirate Radio, Seton Hall University’s legendary metal station. Instantly addicted to the excitement of life behind the mic, she graduated Pirate Radio (and Seton Hall), to become an on-air personality at WHTG (Neptune, N.J.), and later at WDHA (Dover N.J.).

Not content to limit her exposure to New Jersey, Full Metal Jackie made her way to Los Angeles, learning the business side of radio and promotions while working for one of the music industry’s largest management companies. After a short stint as on-air host at San Diego’s 94.9 KBZT, Jackie became host and producer of her own commercial heavy metal radio show, CHAOS on Indie 103.1 in Los Angeles.

Out of that sprang “Full Metal Jackie,” which airs 10 p.m. to midnight Sundays on 97.9 WGRD.

In addition, she also hosts “Loudwire Nights with Full Metal Jackie,” which airs 7 p.m. to midnight Monday to Friday on 97.9 WGRD.

Schedule

Su 10:00 pm - 12:00 am
