1988 was a banner year for the world of Hair Metal. Just check out the albums that were released during those 12 months:

Open Up and Say Ahh from Poison

New Jersey from Bon Jovi

Operation: Mindcrime from Queensryche

Skyscraper from David Lee Roth

And that’s just for starters. There were also classics from Lita Ford, Cinderella, Guns N Roses and many more.

All Memorial Day weekend, Hair Nation is celebrating the 30th anniversary of some of the most enduring and iconic albums in the history of hair metal. And they’re not doing it alone. Derek Smalls of Spinal Tap will be your guest host all weekend long, spinning tracks from these classic artists and albums, along with music for the Tap and Derek’s own, recently released solo album, Smalls Change.

You can hear 30 Years of Hair Metal with Spinal Tap’s Derek Smalls starting Friday, May 25th at 5 pm ET and running all weekend.
