S6E42 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 19 October 2023.  It was a tough one, those of you who listen regularly to TSORR will have heard me mention Athol Curtis on many occasions.  Athol has been a fan of TSORR since it started on Mix FM on 21 12 2017.  We were musical brothers and I considered him the TSORR Musical Director due to his many suggested tracks for the shows.  Athol sadly passed away Tuesday night 17 Oct.  His family and friends are devastated at the loss of this amazing human being.  Athol was born to rock, he was a uniquely charismatic individual, full of life and energy and always supporting and helping everyone around him.  He was a party animal with a heart of gold.  He was the ‘effervescent antidepressant’.

This entire show was dedicated to Athol.  I wasn’t sure how it would go, and I tried to keep it upbeat and focused on the good times and the power of the music rather than the sadness.  I will miss him forever and I hope I have done him justice in these 3 hours.  All of these tracks were favourites of ours and in most cases, I have vivid memories of discussing them with him over the last 6 years.  Rest in Peace my brother I will miss you
