Chop Shop Classic (Sundays at 2:00pm)

The Chop Shop, America’s Guitar Radio Show, offers a Rock and Classic Rock version of the show that features music from such bands as Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Rush, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. The Chop Shop honors rock’s best axe men by inviting listeners to vote their favorite guitarist into the “Chop Shop Hall of Fame.” Each month a new inductee is featured on the website. Fans can download bios, mp3 audio salutes and original desktop artwork of the featured winner. The newly reworked website includes information pages about each inductee, as well as the upcoming nominees for next month.  Visit the Hall of Fame section on the website to see artwork featuring all current and previous inductees.

About Steve Black:

I grew up in Flushing Township, Michigan (out in the sticks) between Flint and Saginaw. I have been on the air for 20 years, 19 years in Detroit at legendary stations including Z-Rock, The Bear, The Ted Nugent Morning Show and WRIF.

I have always done specialty shows, from “Studio Z” to the very popular “Listening Room”, to “Ultimate Albums”. I’ve always made an attempt to show radio listeners that there is much more to the craft of making music that meets most of their ears.

All of my past shows and radio experience have led me to launching The Chop Shop in 2004. The Chop Shop and Chop Shop Classic are guitar shows for all rock & roll fans. It’s not just about the fastest players, or the heaviest, or the most technical, but rather a celebration of all those who have chosen a life centered around the instrument. Between the 2 shows all styles of rock guitar is included.

While not working in the syndicated radio world, I am also the Program Director/Mid-day personality for 103.9 The Fox in Flint.

I have an exceptional wife named Gina and 2 step kids that I love dearly. And the home life wouldn’t be complete without the 2 dogs and a cat.
