The Classic Rock Show w/ John McCoy

What’s it gonna take to tickle your fancy on Thursday’s show? We’ve got John McCoy joining us for starters! #ClassicRock

Hello mutants!

If you’ve been otherwise indisposed – perhaps you’re still drowning your sorrows after the Ashes whitewash – you may not have picked up on the news that John McCoy will be my studio guest this Thursday at 7pm. John is a bass player, record producer and former member of bands such as Gillan, Zzebra, Samson, Atomic Rooster, GMT and Mammoth to name but a few.

Three hours (it’ll quite probably end up being more!) of some rather splendid music will be played, of which some will be chosen by the man himself.

But it doesn’t end there; we’re opening the ‘Request-line’ again and if you’d like to be in with a chance of having something you’d like played on the radio, then there are a couple of ways of letting us know:

  1. Add a comment to this post
  2. Tweet your request @classicrockshow

The ‘Request-line’ will be open until 10pm (GMT) Monday, January 27.

Don’t forget also that we will be holding The Classic Rock Show ‘Roll Call’ during the show at 9pm (GMT). It’s your opportunity to say hello to John & I and we give you a shout-out in return. That’s as complicated as the show gets. Nothin’ fancy, just great music and a lorra, lorra laffs!

Looking forward to your company this Thursday at 7pm. Facebook event link here.

We’re both raring to go. Here’s what John has to say about it.

Cheers!

John McCoy and MJ

Mr John McCoy [ex #Gillan #Mammoth #GMT #Samson] is ‘The Classic Rock Show’ studio guest on 30th January

On Thursday 30th January, I’ll be joined in the studio by Mr John McCoy [ex Zzebra, Samson, Gillan, GMT, Mammoth].

John has been a regular contributor to the show; indeed, last year we got together to chat about his music career. You can still catch the two-part interview via our Mixcloud stream (see link below), so it’s a real treat for me to welcome him to the studio.

Amongst the usual mayhem that has become the norm over the past four years on a Thursday night, John’s tales of rock ‘n’ roll’s jolly japes will be interspersed with a healthy scattering of some choice of tunes which he has chosen to share with you.

Share this event on your Facebook Timeline and invite all fellow rockers along for this rather special show, more details of which will be announced soon.

In the meantime, make this a date in your diary that’s not to be missed….as it’s a date not to be missed!!

Thursday, 30th January at 7pm GMT…no pun intended ;-)

Cheers!

The Classic Rock Show ‘Christmas Party’ is all set to be a cracker!! Feast your mince pies on this…

santaHello and Seasons Greetings to you all!

I’m duty bound to empty my sack again this week, even more so ‘cos it’s Christmas ;-)

The Classic Rock Show ‘Christmas Party’ is all set to be a cracker!! Feast your mince pies on this little lot…

Our playlist this week is made up of Magnum, Thin Lizzy, Gillan, Boston, .38 Special, Heart, Iron Butterfly, Humble Pie, Accept, Halestorm, Fall Out Boy, Ozzy, Poison, Bon Jovi, Heavy Pettin’, as well as a couple of dozen or so great sounding rock tracks, intermingled with some festive numbers to keep in the spirit of things.

Come and party with us this Thursday, 7pm – here. We’ll be the loud one’s wearing reindeer antlers, rocking out, generally misbehaving and drinking Jägerbombs.

Sound like a plan? Too right.

Cheers!!

MJx
