Harold “Howie D” Herula has been a part of the local entertainment scene since 1992. He has worked in several genres of music over the last 20 years including rock, metal, country, top 40, pop, alternative and many others. He’s taken breaks to move to one genre or the other over the years but his heart and his passion are hard rock and metal.
In the last 20 years Howie has held several positions and has excelled at them all. He’s been a DJ, host, music director, event coordinator, booking agent, talent scout, marketing and promotions person, talent manager, and now radio host. His love for music, the local scene and Metro Detroit has grown as the years go by and it’s evident in every thing that he does or is a part of. The one thing Howie would like most would be for Detroit to finally flourish and become the next big scene for entertainment in the United States.
