S6E19 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 7 pm on 11 May 2023.  The show kicked off with Herman Frank and we settled into a hour of uptempo, driving rock and roll from the likes of Quiet Riot, Seether, Buckcherry and Rival Sons.  These last two bands mentioned had new tracks released so we took a listen to get a feel for the forthcoming albums.  Later in the show we continued with the goal of bringing you new SA artist releases.  This week we had a short interview with Liaan Horten of The Color Blew and we took a listen to their brand new track ‘Love In Space which was released about 10 hours’ later on Friday 12 May,

The Ultimate Challenge for this episode looked at 4 albums from 1978 and what a year it was.  Van Halen – Van Halen, Judas Priest –  Stained Class, ACDC – Power Age, and Rainbow – Long Live Rock and Roll.  It went to the wire between ACDC and Van Halen but in the end, sanity prevailed and Van Halen took its rightful place as the greatest album of 1978 and probably the decade.

This week’s Immortals track was Metallica’s ‘The Day That Never Comes’ off the Death Magnetic album.  For the rest of the show, we fitted in US Punk (Anti-Flag), UK Punk (The Clash), and SA Rock (Cutting Jade, Van Coke Kartel, and Future Radio).  Things are tough in South Africa right now, we are up to 10 to 12 hours a day without power, so we used Foo Fighters to give us a bit of a boost with ‘Times Like These’.  Hope you enjoy the episode, cheers until next time.
