About Gabriel (Gabe) Añel

Hello everybody! My name is Gabe and I’m one of the new peeps here at  RFB and I’d like to say hello and mention how thrilled I am to be here! My show is called Hair Metal Mixtape and is on Mondays at 3pm. A little bit about me before I get into my show.

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and raised in Rutherford, NJ. I’ve been an audio engineer since 1994 and an international touring sound guy and tour manager since 2000.
Long story short; a few different tours and A/V companies and I am currently living in Beacon, NY with my wife and almost 7 year old son and “working” for a local “mom and pop” A/V company in Westchester. Phew! (“working” meaning currently unemployed since Pandemic with random “one off” jobs for the company)
Now the show! Hair Metal Mixtape. I was raised in the 80’s and 90’s and I love classic Glam Metal! Bands like Motley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella and even all Van Halen and everything that we lovingly group together with the name Hair Metal. Don’t forget KISS! But we can’t live on nostalgia alone, right? So what I do on HMM is try and balance the classic with the current playing my favorite Hair, Glam, Sleaze and Hard Rock from the 80’s, 90’s ’till today. That way the old geezers like me who like classic Glam Metal can transition our way into the New Wave of Glam Metal bands like Wildstreet from right here in NYC. I’m a plant eating audio engineer who loves vinyl, tapes, cds, dvds, soccer, muscle cars and electric cars and try to live hate free. I’m excited to be here.
Thanks! Peace, Love, Hair Metal!
