In the words of a listener, The Story of Rock and Roll Radio Show: Episode 29 was “really cool, good energy”. I have to agree wholeheartedly. The show was recorded at midnight on 26 July 2019. It was probably one of the first shows to wish Mick Jagger a very happy 76th birthday. We played ‘Bitch’ to celebrate, taken from the Live in Atlantic City album. The show kicked off with Metallica and we didn’t stop rocking for the next two hours. There was a wonderful part where we went from Slayer to Dylan and it was like someone had poured cool water over the entire world. It felt like the whole planet was on fire and then Bob came and soothed our souls. Another great part was listening to Put That Record On by Hinder where Austin Winkler sings “I know it’s only rock and roll but it’s the soundtrack of our lives”. Those words sum up the whole ethos of the Story of Rock and Roll, this music is important, we love it and it is indeed the soundtrack to our lives.
Artists featured on Episode 29 included Metallica, Skid Row, Jack Hammer, Bush, Judas Priest, Halestorm, The Police, Mustasch, Rush, Sammy Hagar, Aerosmith, Jerry Cantrell, The Rolling Stones, Matthew Good Band, Slayer, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Kiss, Tesla, The Uninvited, Madness, Austin Gold, Cold Chisel, Avenged Sevenfold, Windowpane and Hinder. As usual I was out of time and I played out with an amazing new track by The Wildhearts called Let ‘Em Go , which cut off due to podcast length restrictions so I’ll be playing that again soon.
