Episode 13 did prove to be unlucky but it all got sorted out. The show was scheduled to T-off at 7 pm on 1 April 2021 but forces conspired against the gods of rock in a technological April Fools on me. Due to a scheduled system update, a key part of the software wasn’t there to let TSORR connect to Rebel Rock Radio. I had to reboot everything and start again. We got going at about 19h12 so the show has two endings, one to say cheers to actual live listenership and another to say cheers to you, awesome podcast people.
The show itself was very upbeat and very much a party theme going on. We started with Boston and their track ‘Party‘ off Don’t Look Back, then we had ‘ Party Like Tomorrow is the End of The World‘ probably the only clean Steel Panther track ever recorded. It’s a long weekend so personally, I was really looking forward to the fact that tomorrow was a holiday and it made the show a lot of fun. It’s mostly upbeat and pretty punky actually, The new stuff Smith /Kotzen, Ricky Warwick, and Mammoth WVH is all spectacular and especially the Smith Kotzen album is well worth your money, check them out. There was a nice quiet bit with Roan Ash and a song about his father and fathers in general, many of us are fortunate enough to have or have had fathers like this, tune into the words, it’s a very special song from an amazingly talented songwriter with a golden voice.
