The Story of Rock and Roll Radio Show: Episode 27 was recorded at midnight on 12 July 2019.  As always the show contains an eclectic mix of Rock, Metal, Ballads and Blues.  It was pretty diverse and had a good flow, the only technical hitch was an annoying little problem where the recording cut off some of the talking at the beginning of the show.  Maybe it’s trying to tell me something, anyway you may hear a couple of bits where it jumps.  I don’t like to edit the show, it’s important that it goes out as is but I am looking at a solution to this little source of irritation.

One of the highlights was the local slot where I put Wonderboom and Van Coke Kartel back to back and it just sounded amazing, such good energy from these two amazing South African bands.  The show features 26 fantastic artists including ZZ Top, , Iron Maiden, Rory Gallagher, Ozzy Osbourne, The Uninvited, Black Label Society, Fastway, Judas Priest, The Doors, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Halestorm, Van Coke Kartel, Clutch, Rammstein, Wonderboom, Cheap Trick, Jimmy Barnes, Crash Car Burn, U.D.O., The Uninvited, The Quireboys, Slipknot, Tom Petty, The Gaslight Anthem, Tom Keifer & The Stranglers.

The Story of Rock and Roll Show: Episode 26 was a lot of fun, it aired on 5 July 2019 after I had been in the studio for 3 hours filling in on another show.  I was pretty warmed up at the start and pretty fried by 2 am.  The show was also pretty spontaneous because when I looked at what I had planned to play nothing felt right and I had to change everything.

The result was a great mix of rock, heavy and light, fast and slow from 1970 until 2016.  It was quite 70’s weighted this week, showing once again, what a great decade it was for good music.  Bands featured included:  Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, The Stranglers, Megadeth, Parkway Drive, Journey, Twisted Sister, The Rolling Stones, Billy Squier, Anthrax, , My Chemical Romance, Kobus!, The Who, Ivan Ivankovic, Audioslave, Van Halen, Arno Carstens, Gary Moore, Sammy Hagar, Ace Frehley, Billy Idol, Pantera, Rainbow & Bush

Ep24 of TSORR Radio Show took to the air on a chilly winters night in Midrand Johannesburg on 21 June 2019.  The thing I love about Radio is that things do not go as planned.  The State of the Nation address by the President of South Africa took place earlier that night and I started the show mentioning that instead of blasting into full throttle R ‘n’ R it would be more fitting to start with Running To The Edge Of The World, Marilyn Manson’s apocalyptic slow burning anthem of death and destruction.  The intro was great but it didn’t record so the show starts abruptly in the middle of Manson’s masterpiece.  Now you know why 🙂

After that it is was full blast, up tempo, two fisted rock and roll with Dio.  For a while the song titles did indicate the heavy smog of politics, (Digging My Own Grave & The Joker & The Thief), but I cleared the air with Bowie’s Move On and then one last crazy bit of technical mayhem before settling in for a smooth run.  Check out the outro solo on James Reyne’s Ain’t it Always the Way, one of the best ever for pure emotion and the intersection between I Am The Walrus and Time is just great radio.

Among others the show featured The Winery Dogs, Stone Sour, Megadeth, Joe Jackson, Motorhead, David BowieJames Reyne, Marilyn Manson, Judas Priest, Joe Bonamassa, Wolfmother, Clutch, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Five Finger Death Punch, Dio, Anti-Flag, Steve Earle, Dokken, Jimi Hendrix, Stiff Little Fingers, In Flames.  The South African contributions came from The Black Cat Bones, Springbok Nude Girls and Jack Hammer.

Episode 23 was a special episode in that I reflected back a bit on some of the songs that will always be an integral part of The Story of Rock and Roll.  The Show was dedicated to my daughter who just turned 21, without her there would probably be no TSORR.  The show went live at midnight on 14 June 2019, nothing was pre-planned, which was obvious right from the first 10 seconds.  This is how it went down.

 

The show should have kicked off with the mighty Judas Priest but we took a listen to John Paul Young’s classic Yesterday’s Hero first.  It included mega bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, ZZ Top, Deep Purple and Rammstein, we checked out some punk in the form of The Professionals, The Sex Pistols and The Stranglers and as always we hit the SA music hard with Jack Hammer, Springbok Nude Girls and Valiant Swart.  The Metal was supplied by In Flames.  Other artists featured included The Temperance Movement, Shinedown, Tool, Tony Carey, Led Zeppelin, Billy Talent, The Uninvited, Trouble,  UFO, Tesla and Stone Sour.

The Story of Rock and Roll Radio Show-Episode 22 went live from the Mix 93.8 FM studios at 00h00 on 7 June 2019.  TSORR Radio Show rocked from start to finish, kicking off with fast paced ACDC and Iron Maiden and finishing off with Guns ‘n’ Roses and Pantera.  In between we played songs from 8 countries and 6 decades.  There was a quiet moment where we paid our respects to SA rock legend Piet Botha who sadly passed away this week.  It was a special little part of the show featuring two songs, give that bit a deeper listen and focus on the words.  Piet’s passing is a huge loss for SA music and sad though it is I focused on my gratitude rather than the loss.  RIP Piet, you were very dear to us.

The Story of Rock and Roll Podcast-Episode 22 featured ACDC, Kiss, Rory Gallagher, Badlands, Van Halen, Piet Botha, Cutting Jade, Jimi Hendrix, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Jonathan Martin, Black Label Society, Steelheart, Joe Bonamassa, Iron Maiden, James Reyne, Pantera, Warren Zevon, Hazel O’Connor, The Clash, Edgar Broughton Band, Sixx AM, The Rolling Stones & Marilyn Manson.

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.

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 Radio Show: 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.
