NEWS: 1983 revisited with ‘Back To The 80s’ Part 4

This week’s show takes you on another trip down memory lane, back to the year 1983, with Part 4 of a series of shows celebrating Rock Music through the 80s, year-by-year. “Oh yeah….looking through those rose-tinted spectacles again, are we?”, but those of us fortunate enough to have lived through the early 80s can be forgiven for thinking it was an era where rock music, not for the first time, took on an energy all of its own, providing some notable highlights and in some case, breaking new ground.

Just look at a few of the bands we’ve lined up for you to rock out to in the first hour of the show! Motley Crue, Dio, Y&T, Quiet Riot, Yes, Genesis, Alcatrazz, Thin Lizzy and Gary Moore.

And if that’s not enough, we’ll be hearing from the likes of Queensrÿche, Metallica, Kiss, Molly Hatchet, Hanoi Rocks, Magnum, Bryan Adams, AC/DC, Rainbow, Journey, Saxon, Iron Maiden, Hawkwind, Marillion, Status Quo, Accept, Dokken, Ozzy Osbourne, Slade, Def Leppard and ZZ Top.

Three hours of great music, anecdotes and news headlines from the year 1983 – 7pm Thursday, 12th February.

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!
