Since METAL SHOP signed online in 2003, Bruce Pulley has been a constant presence as the station imaging voice.
Listeners never knew his name, but those pipes became familiar as he boomed “Who wants to rock?!” or “Kickin’ your ass with 80’s metal and hard rock!”
Blessed with the perfect rock radio voice, he gives METAL SHOP that larger than life sound, a sound he honed in a radio career that included KLOS in Los Angeles, CA and KUFO in Portland, OR.
Sadly, Bruce passed away on Sunday.
He was a good guy and a lot like the rest of us, a fan of hard rock looking for a good time.
After I received the news Monday, I went to the archive of all the audio Bruce recorded for METAL SHOP over the years and put together some outtakes. He liked to have fun, had a great sense of humor and was always solid at his work.
He will continue to be the image voice of METAL SHOP for the foreseeable future. I will miss him. R.I.P. Bruce and condolences to your family.
