S6E48 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio on 30 Nov 2023.  All last week’s technical problems were sorted and we had a hassle-free show other than the fact that I forgot to turn on the inverter before load shedding which took us off air for 5 min.  The podcast is fine but that’s what that was about when I mentioned it.  The show kicked off and closed off with KISS.  This amazing band are largely responsible for my love for rock and metal.  As detailed in the Book The Story of Rock and Roll, once I heard KISS for the first time I was hooked forever.  KISS are playing their last show on 2 Dec 2023 and that will be at Madison Square Gardens.  After that, it’s the end of KISS as a live act.   That is what the band are saying whether or not they will ever do a one-off who knows

The Immortals track this week was ‘The King Will Come’ off Wishbone Ash’s career highwater mark Argus.  Amazing track by an amazing band.
