NEWINGTON - People are intimidated by her passion, Christine Palmer said,
and it’s not necessarily because of the metal music she plays.

Palmer runs Metal Fortress Radio, a station she ran between 2004 and 2006
as a program on 91.7 FM WHUS out of the University of Connecticut. She now
runs it out of an office in her home, “We’re entrepreneurs,” said Palmer,
who runs the station with the help of her fiance, Tommy “Beast” Blardo, a
member of the Enemy Remains band. “We built something independently.”.

When WCCC FM, considered the state’s leading rock station, went off the air
in 2014, Palmer felt an obligation to bring her station back to fill the
rock void and expand it online.
