The Story of Rock and Roll: Episode 19

Episode 19 of TSORR went live at midnight on 10 May 2019.  It’s probably the first show that had a mellow start in the form of ACDC’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Ain’t Noise pollution. The audience reaction to this episode was excellent on the Whatsapp line.  That was good to know as it was probably the most diverse show I have done so far.  It ranged from Joe Jackson to Metallica, Alice In Chains to Sheryl Crow.  Beware that Joe Jackson will get stuck in your head 🙂

I played a lot of lesser known stuff, bands like Wilson, Kris Barras Band,  Bullet Boys, Los Labios & Black Spiders along with the usual heavy weights Dio, Van Halen, Metallica, Black Sabbath & ACDC.  SA music was represented by Aking and it was great to hear Johnny Is Nie Dood Nie, the Koos Kombuis classic, if you have ever been at a festival where he has played that you will know how wonderful it is, goosebumps.

The Story of Rock and Roll: Episode 18

Episode 18 of TSORR Radio Show went out live at midnight on 3 May 2019 from the Mix 93.8 FM studios in Midrand Johannesburg.  It was not a textbook start by any means.  I was in Studio B which I have never used before and consequently the usual hearty greeting over the Dr Who intro theme is not there and you only know you are listening to a Radio Show after the 3rd song.  There is also a quick splice between Volbeat and Airbourne because the podcast link shut down in the Middle of Rainbows Long Live Rock and Roll.  Those problems were resolved quickly and the rest of the show went smoothly.

The show as always provided an eclectic mix of Rock music including the biggest hard rock and metal bands in the world but spanning the last 53 years but also celebrating some of the unsung heroes who have written & performed some of the greatest songs you have never heard.

Bands featured this week include Volbeat, Airbourne, Jimi Hendrix, Montrose, Dan Patlansky, Audioslave, Arapaho, Quiet Riot, Therapy?, Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Kreator, Rush, Tom Waits, Joe Satriani, Pearl Jam, Phil Rudd, Dave Hause, Fokofpolisiekar, Night Ranger, Motor Sister

The Story of Rock and Roll: Episode 17

The Story of Rock and Roll Podcast – Episode 17 was recorded at Midnight on 26 April 2019.  Technically it’s the best show so far and is pretty much glitch free.  As usual I covered a lot of ground, starting with ACDC and finishing with ZZ Top.  I played a track from Live at Leeds which was released in 1971 and went all the way through to Kreators’ 2017 release Gods Of Violence and Tom Petty’s 2018 posthumous release called An American Treasure.  The 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 00’s all got a fair shake.  As usual we had a bit of Classic Punk, Local SA bands and all the Rock, Metal, Ballads and Blues you have come to expect on TSORR.

The show featured among others, ACDC, Chickenfoot, Dio, Iron Maiden, John Mellencamp, Guns ‘n’ Roses, The Jam, UFO, The Who, ZZ Top, Jack Hammer, Blue Scream, The Stranglers, Kreator, Neil Young, The Black Cat Bones, Left Lane Cruiser, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Blink 182, The New Black, Rory Gallagher, Poison, Oasis, Tom Petty.
