RICHMOND, Va., – Classic Metal Mondays airs every Monday night on WVCW, Virginia Commonwealth University’s student-run Internet radio station. The man behind the mic has a lot more than music to talk about.

The show, hosted by DJ Five-O, aka Officer Matthew Ruland, shares crime prevention strategies while he plays his favorite metal songs.  Ruland says the blend of music and safety messages is an easy decision.

“I grew up listening to it,” said Officer Ruland. “I love it. It hasn’t made me a bad person. So I figured, what the hey.”
