S6E17 or Season Six Episode Seventeen of The Story Rock and Roll Radio Show went out live at [7:00] PM on the 27th of April 2023 on Rebel Rock Radio. We kicked off with ACDC and a track off Back in Black called ‘Shoot to Thrill’.  It was Freedom Day in South Africa so we celebrated our freedom from electricity, water, and roads without potholes.  We listened to Stuff like Badlands ‘Streets Cry Freedom’ and Tesla ‘Freedom Slaves’ to celebrate.

The Immortals track this week, that’s a track over 7 minutes long that is fully representative of what an artist is all about but generally is too long for radio airplay) featured Rory Gallagher and ‘A Million Miles Away’.  This version was 9 minutes long and came from his fantastic album Irish Tour ’74 40th Anniversary Edition.  There were some awesome moments on this show, some power pairings like Dirty Honey ‘Another Last Time’ and The Darkness ‘Holding My Own’ the synergy comes from the guitar sound, it is just amazing.

There wasn’t a lot of new stuff so we continued with Metallica’s 72 Seasons as well as Ian Hunter’s Defiance pt 1.  There was a new Texas Hippie Coalition so planned to give that a run but ran out of time, next week, I promise.

On the local music, we had a short interview with flash rockers Marene and took in their brand new release ‘Partners In Crime’, it is a great track and we also took a listen to ‘Poison’ by Jackson Colt just to keep the SA music flowing.  Jackson Colt is such an awesome guitarist, it’s great how we have all these guitarists who were exposed to guitar-based music from Kiss, Van Halen, and all the ’80s mega-bands by presumably their parents.  We are certainly richer for it.

The Ultimate Challenge this week featured Tom Petty – Hypnotic Eye, Foo Fighters – Sonic Highways, Accept – Blind Rage, and Seether – Isolate and Medicate.  No clear winner here, I got votes for all of them, Accept just crept in by a last minute vote.  Top lyric goes to Seether for “Because you’re the one who needs the fucking intervention” line although in retrospect The Jam with ‘Thick as Thieves’ a song all about the ANC was right up there.

The end of this show was a mad rush to squeeze in UK Punk from The Stranglers, The Clash, and The Jam, also some Kid Rock, and for the first time ever on TSORR a track from Eminem.

Artists featured:  ACDC, Badlands, Rough Cutt, Airbourne, La>a Guns, Adrenaline, Clutch, Dirty Honey, The Darkness, The Offspring, Danko Jones, Aerosmith, Rainbow, Rainbow, Five Finger Death Punch, System of a Down, Tesla, The Dead Daisies, Marene, Jackson Colt, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Metallica, Ian Hunter, Ace Frehley, Rory Gallagher, Seether, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Foo Fighters, Accept, The Clash, the Jam, The Stranglers, Kid Rock, Eminem, Monty Python
