Imagine life without rock ‘n’ roll? Imagine Thursday’s without The Classic Rock Show? No, I can’t either! #Thanksgiving

Hello everyone.

Thursday has come around again. Thank goodness for that!! 

Gotta also thank all those of you who have contributed song requests towards this week’s playlist. The Classic Rock Show is built around what you want to hear. That’s the way you like it, that’s the way we like it and that’s the way it’s gonna stay. You okay with that? ;-)

On the show this evening, we’ve got Judas Priest, Diamond Head, Whitesnake, Hawkwind, Rainbow, Lone Star, Kiss, Little Angels, Magnum, Tool and a request to play something off the new Cold Cold Ground album (which, I might add, is really rather bloody good). Plus a whole heap of other prime cuts.

Tune in this evening from 7pm (GMT) to hear some of the very best rock ‘n’ roll produced from years gone by, right up to the present day. And if you fancy having a chat online with all the other listeners and yours truly during the show, then get yourself across to our Facebook Group. Plenty of good laughs and banter to be had. I’m looking forward to it.

See you later.

Cheers!

Twitter profile pic copyHello!!

We’ve just closed the ‘Request-Line’ for this week and what do we find? Some absolute gems, as we’ve come to expect.

Amongst all these, we’ll also hear from Faster Pussycat, Electric Light Orchestra, Golden Earring, Scorpions, Rainbow, Status Quo, Starz, Robin Trower, Damn Yankees, along with the Black Spiders, Huntress and Lamb Of God, so it’ll be just a bit LOUD in places ;-)

See you Thursday 7pm (GMT)

Cheers!

It’s our 4th Anniversary!! Tune in to the show tonight from 7pm!! #ClassicRock

Hello there

Just warming up the studio in readiness for tonight’s 4th Anniversary show.

We’ve got a lot to get through. I’m also joined in the studio by two close friends of The Classic Rock Show – Bex (from Bex Rocks) and Dawn (from Friday Rock Night on Felixstowe Radio). I will obviously have to behave myself!! ;-)

We’ll hear two tracks each from Saxon, Whitesnake, Rainbow and AC/DC! We’ve also got some killer tuneage from Cinderella, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi, Foghat, Cheap Trick, Guns ‘N’ Roses, Clutch, The Dead Daisies, Blackfoot, REO Speedwagon, Boston, Iron Maiden, McCoy, Epysode, Nocturna, Rob Zombie, Demon, Terrorvision, Buckcherry, Danger Danger, Damn Yankees, and a whole load more.

If that’s not enough, we’ll be announcing the lucky winner of the Mott The Hoople competition we’ve been running all this week to win a pair of VIP tickets to their London show at the O2.

I’m really looking forward to having you along. Tune in from 7pm – click here.

Cheers

Mott The Hoople

Thanks to our good friends John McCoy, Angel Air Records and AEG Live, we have a pair of VIP tickets for Mott The Hoople’s London O2 Arena show on the 18th November 2013!!

The band reformed recently and they’ve just set off on a five-date tour of the UK and you can see them conclude this tour at London’s O2. The shows will feature original members Verden Allen (keyboards/vocals), Ian Hunter (vocals/guitar/piano), Mick Ralphs (guitar/vocals) and Overend Watts (bass/vocals). Due to ill health, original drummer Dale Griffin will be substituted by Martin Chambers (The Pretenders). The London show will see Thunder and Fish join them as Special Guests.

If you want to be in with a chance of winning one of these much sought after pairs of tickets, then all you have to do is answer the following question, sending your answer, name and address via the contact form below.

“Dandy Huge Sellout” is an anagram of a Mott The Hoople hit record, but which one? 

Closing date is this Thursday 14th November at 5pm (UK time). The lucky winner will be announced during the ‘Live’ broadcast of The Classic Rock Show later that same evening (beginning at 7pm) – click here for the link.

Good luck!!

THIS COMPETITION HAS ENDED

Feel the #Beard along with @chili_bex Thursday night from 7pm (UK time)

BeardYes, that day has arrived when Bex – The Queen Of Rock – takes over and delivers what is sure to be a stonking show.

There’s a bit of a theme tonight as it’s Movember, so band members/singers with rockin’ beards/moustaches will play a significant part in the tuneage blasted out of your speakers/headphones. Celebrate all that’s bearded on our Facebook Group: www.facebook.com/groups/theclassicrockshow

Make sure you tune in nice and early via this link - Bex Rocks - from 7pm (UK time).

Cheers

MJx

Let’s hear your voice on The Classic Rock Show ‘Birthday Bash’!!

memo_recorder_2-4122013

Hello Rockers!!

As you may already be aware, The Classic Rock Show will be celebrating its 4th Birthday on 14th November 2013. Dawn (from The Friday Rock Night on Felixstowe Radio), one of my longest serving listeners, and my broadcast buddy, Bex from ‘Bex Rocks‘ will be joining me at some point during the evening. They’ll be sharing stories and a joke or two along the way, but what I’m really keen to hear is your voice on-air too.

If you have a smartphone, there are free apps available for download that can record your voice. In 10secs or less, tell us why it is you listen to The Classic Rock Show. If you also fancy recording a Birthday message as well, feel free. I’ll edit them up ready for broadcast during the Birthday Bash show.

Send them over to me in mp3 format via a Facebook PM to my personal account, or message via The Classic Rock Show Facebook Page.

Cheers
MJx
