Hard to believe we are already 4 episodes into 2021, time flies when you are having fun. This episode aired on 28 Jan 2021 at 7 pm so that’s January in its poes :-). We kicked off with ‘Ride the Monkey‘ by Burning Rain and followed it with Sister Sin out of Gothenburg. That got the lesser-known stuff out and on your airwaves and then we hit the ACDC and some W.A.S.P. It was one of those shows where I wasn’t getting any flow but then record-breaking numbers started tuning in and everything fell into place.
Highlights for me included rediscovering Bon Jovi’s ‘Wild As The Wind‘ and taking a listen to Body Counts ‘Institutionalized 2014′, not everyone’s cup of tea but the lyrics are hilarious and if you’ve ever lost your e-mail password you’ll relate. The back to back Pantera to Sepultura worked for me and then The Cult with Heart of soul was like soothing water. Another highlight was Dog detachment with ‘The Last Laugh‘ what a song, the Armstrong brothers got that one right. We also celebrated the discovery that uber rock chick Brody Dalle is single. Black Label Society as always, ratchets up exponentially when Zakk hits the solo, what a player. And speaking of players, Satriani in Chickenfoot is in a class of his own.
