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.

INTERVIEW (audio): Matt and Dhani of The Treatment

If there was ever a band that mixed youthful exuberance with kiss-ass rock ‘n’ roll riffage, then The Treatment have certainly nailed it. With two albums well and truly under their belts, numerous tours, including big name support slots such as Aerosmith, Kiss, Thin Lizzy, Steel Panther, Alice Cooper and Motley Crue, they’ve watched, listened and learned from the very best…and boy, have they picked up on it all!

treatmentThe ‘Second Bite’ tour – promoting their stunning 2014 ‘Running With The Dogs’ album – is now drawing to a close. It’s been a tour which has seen this young band draw upon all their experiences; delivering unquestionably their most polished performances to date.

We sat down with Matt Jones (vocals) and Dhani Mansworth (drums) backstage at The Waterfront Studios in Norwich and talked about the album, their new ‘look’ and their latest video release ‘The Outlaw’.

You can listen to our interview here:

 

The Treatment’s ‘Second Bite’ tour continues tonight (Monday, 20th October) at The Joiners in Southampton, Tuesday, 21st October at Exeter’s Cavern and on Thursday, 23rd October on Brighton’s seafront at the Audio.

Check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks for listening!
