NEWS: A veritable cacophony of sounds and vibes on Thursday’s show

wpid-img_20141127_121828.jpgIt always feels a little bit strange coming back to do a show after a week off. That said, the time away has given me a chance to listen through a few new albums and promos that have been sent in to ‘The Classic Rock Show’ studio over the past couple of weeks or so.

Consequently, a veritable cacophony of sounds and vibes has been playlisted for your aural pleasure this Thursday from 7pm (UK time).

2014-12-08 17.16.18

We’ve got Blackberry Smoke’s new single ‘Let Me Help You (Find The Door)’ which will be on their next album ‘Holding All The Roses’ to released on Monday, 9th February 2015.

Rival Sons, a band that are on top of their game right now, are currently touring the UK, so we’ll have something from ‘Great Western Valkyrie’ and also a track from their support band Blues Pills who are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with too.

Joe Bonamassa has a rather bluesy Christmas song called ‘Lonesome Christmas’ which we’ll hear.

Norwich-based symphonic metallers Nocturna released their debut video last week. ‘Revelations’, taken from their forthcoming 2015 EP ‘Lucidity’, is to get its first airing on rock radio.

Bernie Tormé has a new album out titled ‘Flowers and Dirt’ which sounds just amazing – Bernie is in top form. I’ll be playing something off of that and also giving away the album on CD to a lucky listener!

Lots to look forward to, including all of your fab requests which have been sent in this week…Classic Rock as it should be played!

Join us this Thursday, 11th December, from 7pm (GMT). ‘Roll Call’ is at 9pm. Show ends at 10pm.
