Kerrang! 105.2 has hit the airwaves with a bang after the official launch yesterday. The Emap-owned station, which is broadcasting to the West Midlands region, hosted the bash at its newly refurbished Birmingham base.
The station was welcomed to the air by Black Sabbath legend, Tony Iommi, and was followed by a live linkup with Foo Fighters front man, Dave Grohl in Los Angeles. The Charlatans also stopped by to offer their support, performing some of their hits.
Kerrang! 105.2 managing director, Travis Baxter and Emap performance\'s group managing director, Dee Ford welcomed the guests and outlined the stations ambitions to expand the Kerrang! brand throughout the country in the forthcoming months. The license was secured back in October last year.
