Season 3 Episode 9 of The Story of Rock and Roll Radio Show aired at 7 pm on 15 October 2020. It had a rocky start so be warned, the show opens with Van Halen and Dreams because I am still sad about Eddie, it is followed By ACDC, and then on the 3rd tack it goes soft for about a minute DO NOT crank up the volume because it comes back to full volume as soon as I realise the levels we not right. After that everything is fine. Start-up blues we call it.
We check out some Twisted Sister and some Volbeat and a couple of lesser-known bands like Austin Gold, Axel Rudi Pell, Bullets & Octane, and The Lazy’s. The Lazy’s out of Aus are a great band, check them out. I played another track off the Brendan O’Brien remix of Pearl Jam’s Ten and it sounds fantastic, check out the guitars in that.
The brand new EP from Fokofpolisiekar got an airing and it’s great. The highlight of the show for me was an old track by No Friends of Harry called Make My Day, requested but a listener who said it makes him want to down a warm Black Label quart and attack your neighbours with an empty bottle. I understood the moment I played it :-). There was a lot of good stuff on the show so best you just listen to it, but remember not to adjust for the low volume in the beginning.
