Lou Brutus, the son of sideshow circus freaks, was brought into this world in Newark, New Jersey during a fierce thunderstorm while women wailed and jackals howled. Raised on a steady diet of cotton candy and things that dropped out of peoples pockets as they strode the circus midway, Lou received his first taste of hard rock at New York’s Madison Square Garden where he bore witness to the original Black Sabbath. Following the show, Brutus gladly sold his soul to Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne in exchange for a career in radio and something to eat that wasn’t covered in hay and elephant crap.
Lou Brutus’ legendary (dare we call it infamous?) career has seen him soil the airwaves of New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington, DC, and Providence, Rhode Island, where Mayor Buddy Cianci once ordered the local police to “shoot the son of a b*tch on sight!”
Lou, who witnessed over 1000 concerts during his life, has travelled the world to bring his listeners first-hand reports from music’s greatest moments with broadcasts from North America, Europe, Asia, and the frozen Arctic tundra of Canada where he moshed with Inuit eskimos during a live performance by Metallica. Mr Brutus, the winner of dozens of broadcast awards which he uses to decorate the nest of his pet wolverines, has been the host of hardDrive since it signed on the air in early 1996.
He has no shame and no sense of decency.
Rock with Lou Brutus during HardDrive XL, weeknights from 7 pm – Midnight and tune in for HardDrive on Saturdays from 10 pm – Midnight on Razor 94.7.
