Saxon is one of the originals  a New Wave of British Heavy Metal legend. Biff Byford the lead singer and founding member of the band joined us to talk about being in a band this long and what it’s like putting out over 20 albums in their lifetime.

SAXON’S BIFF BYFORD IS HERE THIS WEEKEND

Although the band never made it to the point of Iron Maiden huge as part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal scene of the early 80′s they were 1A and 1B. With the release of their 24th studio album coming this Tuesday March 5th, Biff lays it all down during this edition of Hangar 19.

Speaking of New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Def Leppard are the subject of this week’s In the Vault. This is their appearance on the radio show Rockline in 1981.
