It has been exactly 15 years since first show kicked off with Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality.” Hosted by WRIF-FM Detroit mainstay, Steve Black, the popular radio show continues to devote itself to guitar greats and the stories behind them. Starting May 24th, the next chapter in The Chop Shop’s journey will begin as its Sweet 16 season gets underway.

“My love of rock & roll directed me into radio nearly 30 years ago. It was that same passion that opened these shows to syndication 15 years ago. And I see the impact music makes on our lives every day,” said Steve Black. “Some of my happiest moments are helping listeners find new music or remember a special moment attached to one of their favorite songs.”
