"ProgFather" METALLINOS - "Walkers In The Lorn Town" radio show

About me

 

Elias "ProgFather" Metallinos was born at the...centre of the earth... in Thessaloniki, Greece. Since 1981, he has been occupied with underground and on the ground radio stations! His love for progressive rock and his dedication to the music, in general, triggered him to seek out more specific radios of high quality music. He worked as a music producer in many radios of the town such as "30th Parallel", "Radio Utopia", "Radio Acropolis", "Days of Radio (Radio Thessaloniki)", "Music Club Radio (Lamia, Greece)", "1055 Rock", "904 Left Wing at FM". During the last three years, he is a music producer for the web radios of "Rockarolla" and "JustIn Case Prog Radio".

The titles of his shows are poetic enough like, "Indestructible through time", "Don't look at the basement", "For all those that take a chance" and "At the Frozen Waters of Abyss"  between others.

In parallel, he is still a collaborator in various magazines and fanzines throughout Greece; he is a correspondent and a writer of articles.

At present, he maintains two blogspots; the first is about live shows and the other is about a variety of contemporary social issues. You can join them at:

My show in JustIn Case Prog Radio is titled "Walkers in the Lorn Town" and this is about a continuous music quest in the multi-dimensional universe of progressive music!
