Two huge bands that begin with “S” from two different eras will share the same stage soon: Skillet…which began in the mid to late 1990’s and has never stopped rockin’… And a resurgent 80’s band that lead singer John Cooper grew up listening to as part of his Christian metal album collection: Stryper.

It’s brand new, it’s small, simple, functional, and beautiful. And it sounds fantastic. It is made by Arrakis, which is a pillar in the broadcast industry. The Colin Cruz radio […]
