The Story of Rock and Roll Season 2, Episode 1 went out live at midnight on 3 Dec 2020. It was a great little show, a very decent way to start off the new decade. God knows where we’ll be in another 10 years, pretty sure podcasts like this will be like talking about cassette tapes. It was great to be back in the midnight time slot, but it felt like it was over before we started.

The show kicked off with Krokus followed by a bit of Walking in the ‘Shadow of the Blues’. That was courtesy of White Snake and then we were off and running, pedal to the metal for the next two hours. We dealt with the Ozzy Osbourne, deathbed or no deathbed issue, contemplated a ‘Post American World‘ with Megadeth and checked out some Papa Roach. It’s hard to believe Papa Roach have been around for 20 years! The highlight of the show for me was Slipknot with ‘Opium of the People‘, hearing a song like that in the early of the morning is just so special. The South African music was covered by Cutting Jade, The Color Blew and of course Seether.

Artists featured this episode include: Megadeth, Joe Bonamassa, Cutting Jade, ACDC, Krokus, Ramones, The Color Blew, Whitesnake, Night Ranger, Metallica, Ozzy Obourne, Kid Rock, Seether, Black Label Society, Clutch, Wolfmother, My Chemical Romance, Thin Lizzy, Slipknot, John Mellencamp, Social Distortion, Papa Roach, Rainbow, Volbeat, Soundgarden & The Gaslight Anthem.

Episode 43 of The Story of Rock and Roll Radio Show aired at the stroke of midnight on 8 November 2019. We were straight into it with a brand new release by Airbourne, who were referred to as “the thinking man’s ACDC” by a quick witted listener. The pace stayed right where it was all the way through Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Marilyn Manson and Iron Maiden. Next we hit a short blast of Punk with the amazing Brody Dalle before going off to the movies for a few tracks.

Speculation is rife that we will get to see KISS in July next year so we took a listen to them. The highlight of the show for me was taking a listen to Metallica’s ‘The Four Horsemen’. It’s amazing how refreshing that track sounded and it was a great reminder of just how cutting edge they were back in 1983. The speakers in the studio are really good so I got to hear it properly at about one thirty a.m. and had the speakers glowing red by the end of the show. It must be really cool to be driving a big truck through the night and to have that track come over the airwaves like a fucking super nova. After a false start we got our weekly dose of Cold Chisel and we also got to hear one of those bands you can’t play on the radio.

Artists featured in this episode include: ZZ Top, My Chemical Romance, Sugar Drive, Airbourne, The Mayfield Four, Kiss, Badlands, Joe Bonamassa, Kid Rock, Metallica, The Distillers, Marilyn Manson, Foo Fighters, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Northward, Steel Panther, The Drop Kick Murphy’s, Halford, Cold Chisel, Stone Temple Pilots, Oasis, Def Leppard, Hinder, The Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden as well as Mick Jagger & Dave Stewart.
