About the Show



Now celebrating its 14th year, the world famous HardDriveXL delivers… hands down… the absolute BEST radio show for the Rock/Active Rock audience! The show is led by Lou Brutus — a Rock radio legend, an award winning host and a true Renaissance man! Lou is highly respected and loved in the music industry – from bands to radio to record label peeps. His interview skills are razor sharp, inquisitive and humorous… always keeping guests — the likes of Foo Fighters, Metallica, Lzzy Hale, Papa Roach, The Pretty Reckless, Sevendust, Pop Evil, Godsmack, Royal Bliss, Seether, Maynard Keenan, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, and so many more — engaged and spontaneously talking up a storm on live radio! Lou connects with listeners through his love of the format, his wealth of knowledge and his deep friendships with so many artists. HardDriveXL is more like an air shift with that cool local jock whom you WANT to hear speak in between the songs, lending to a ratings winner for affiliates.

HardDriveXL fills that weeknight 7pm to midnight daypart to keep your P1s rocking throughout the week, featuring an A-level artist each night, contests, exclusive interviews, regular contesting and giveaways, tour announcements, and cool benchmark features. HardDriveXL has a 2 hour weekend counterpart, HardDrive, and combined they are broadcast on 120 happy stations. Playing a cool music mix of air-tested chart-toppers to new releases straight out of the box in the format. Both shows continue to deliver the numbers in all the key demos for Active Rock!

Bonus facts… Lou is an accomplished photographer of both Rock bands and of Major League Baseball, with a photo book in the making.  His book Sonic Warrior: My Life as a Rock and Roll Reprobate was released in April 2020. Lou is a voting member of NARAS for the Grammys and is the world’s best pet daddy to #DarlaTheWonderDog too! Most of all, he has radio in his blood and is guaranteed to amp up your nights! So, what do you say… let’s bring HardDriveXL home!
