S7E8 went out live on Rebel Rock radio at 19h00 on 22 Feb 2024.  It was touch and go with a fiber failure an hour before the show, big well done to the guys at Vodacom Fibre for sorting it out in time.  We started with a bit of ACDC and ‘Overdose’ off the Let There Be Rock album and just kept on building from there.  This week's Immortals feature – a track over 7 min that showcases what an artist is all about was the original version of Am I Evil by Diamond Head.  You may only know the Metallica version and they have indeed made it famous, but it all started here.  I w ..read more

Welcome to S7E7 of The Story of Rock and Roll radio Show.  This one went out on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 15 Feb 2024.  I was in Clarens with master guitarist Dan Patlansky and a whole lot of guitar maniacs so the show deals with that a bit, but for the main, it is straight down-the-line Rock and Metal, as you would expect.    This week's Immortals feature – a track over 7 min that showcases what an artist is all about features the man himself, Mr Dan Patlansky with a track recorded back in 2006 on an album called Real. The track is called Bad Weather Blues and showcases ..read more

Welcome to Episode 4 of Season 7.  S7E4 went out live at 19h00 on 25 Jan 2024 on Rebel Rock Radio.  Amazing to think that the first month of 2024 is done, where does the time go?  We started gently with some Iron Maiden and the show progressed from there.  We had new releases from Green Day, Saxon, Judas Priest, and Ryan Adams.  The year is starting off well.     The Immortals slot, a track over 7 min long, went to Deep Purple’s ‘Knocking at Your Back Door' off their 1984 Perfect Strangers album.  This album was the reunion of the celebrated Mk II l ..read more

S7E3 aired live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 18 Jan 2024.    It ended up being one of my favourite shows ever.  The end was gloriously spontaneous, and the people tuned in were just awesome.  Going round the world in 40 min at the end of the show was amazing, unplanned and a great way to say goodnight.    The Immortals track in the episode was Rainbow’s ‘Light in the Black’.  This comes off the Rising album, one of the greatest albums to come out of the ‘70s  This weeks Diabolical Challenge looked at four bands beginning with the letter ‘C’.  The ..read more

Episode 2 of Season 7 aired live at 19h00 on Rebel Rock Radio on 11 Jan 2024.    The Immortals feature this week is from Rush, a track called By-tor and the Snow Dog off their second album Fly By Night.  This was the first album they made after Neal Peart joined the band after the resignation of John Rutsey.  The track consists of 8 parts and gave the world the first glimpse of the direction Rush were taking going forward.  There was a little technical glitch after Yngwie J. Malmsteen, it comes back after about 45 seconds so just jump it or wait it out, apologies for t ..read more

Welcome to the 7th season of The Story of Rock and Roll radio Show.  S7E1 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 4 Jan 2024.  We kicked off with David Bowie and It’s No Game (Part 1) which feels like the perfect song for where we find ourselves in 2024.   The Diabolical Challenge has had a make-over.  In Season 6 I presented 4 albums from a specific year and listeners got to vote on which one they would choose if they could only take one.  Well with 52 shows in 2023, we ran out of years.  The new Diabolical Challenge looks at things alphabetically.&nbs ..read more

This is a special episode.  The Story of Rock and Roll turned Six.  On 12 Dec 2017, the first-ever TSORR aired from the Mix 93.8 FM Studios in Midrand Johannesburg.  Six years later to the day, S6E51 aired live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 12 Dec 2023.  The world has changed, and my life has changed so it is good to know that the music has not.  The episode was a celebration of the bands and the songs that make the show what it is.  Thank you all for your support, wherever you are and whoever you are I am deeply grateful for your support.  I will continue ..read more

S6E50 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio at 19h00 on 14 Dec 2023.  People are winding down now, it has been a long tough year for most, so thanks very much for the support for Season 6 of TSORR and I wish you all an awesome festive season.     The Immortals Track tonight was something different.  Last week we played a track by Roger Kaye.  Roger was a very good friend of mine; I met him at high school and he was one of the most talented musicians I have ever known.  He was a multi-instrumentalist and did some amazing stuff.  All this can be found in my book Th ..read more

S6E49 went out live on Rebel Rock Radio on 7 Dec 2023 at 19h00.  Fourth last show of 2023, this year has flown.  We kicked off at the start of the alphabet and checked out Alter Bridge off the Fortress.  It was a great way to start, a nice build-up to 3 hours of rock and metal.  This week's Immortal slot went to the Mightly Judas Priest with ‘Blood Red Skies’ off Ram It Down The Diabolical Challenge took in the year 1970.  Back in those days there were only about 20 releases to choose from but man, the quality of those twenty !  Here they are:    Bl ..read more
