#NEWS Here’s what we’ve got on ‘The Classic Rock Show’ Thursday 7pm BST 2pm EDT / 11am PDT

Here’s what we’ve got planned for ‘The Classic Rock Show’ on Thursday, 9th July from 7pm BST / 2pm EDT / 11am PDT:

The month of July seemed to be an exceptionally good time for album releases in years gone by, and we’re gonna play you some of the very best. Classic cuts from Alice Cooper, Dio, David Lee Roth, Slayer, Megadeth, Pat Benatar, Helix, Quiet Riot, Faster Pussycat, Ratt, Great White, Ace Frehley, Y&T and Heart will no doubt help to bring back some memories of you running down to the local record store to pick up a copy.

“What about our requests?”, I hear you say. Of course, this show wouldn’t be the same without your contributions, so we’ll also be hearing from Blackberry Smoke, Cozy Powell, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour, Massive, Nickelback, the new one from Shinedown, Dire Straits, Faith No More, Gary Moore, Def Leppard and Loverboy.

New music will primarily come from the ‘Blues’ end of the music spectrum. The amazing Will Johns (appearing at The Criterion Theatre, Coventry on July 11th and The Wheatsheaf, Oxford on July 13th) has a new single out ‘Last Page’, and we’ll be playing that for you. Plus we’ll play something from the new album by Jared James Nichols, who’s tour support for Glenn Hughes in September, and also hear a track from the new King King album ‘Searching For The Light’. They’ll be back out on tour in October.

As you see, we’ve quite a mix for you…well, we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Join in the chat and comment on our Facebook Group and on Twitter @classicrockshow during the ‘live’ broadcast from 7pm until 10pm BST. Listen links can be found on the Home page.

#NEWS: ‘Back To The 80s’…the how, what, where, when…1984

Tomorrow night’s show will take us ‘Back To The 80s’ and the year 1984. A year which saw us glued to the television watching shows like Magnum PI, Hill Street Blues, Cheers, Fame, Dynasty, The ‘A’ Team, Miami Vice and perhaps most importantly, MTV!

Release date is set for Night By Night’s debut album

Night by Night are a hard rock 5-piece from London who fuse searing riffs with soaring melodies. This cutting-edge quintet combine the best of classic and contemporary rock, charged with 3-part vocal harmonies to create their own sound and the result is a debut of unparalleled strength and musical maturity, with across the board appeal.

Combine the heavyweight riffs and modern crunch of Alter Bridge, add the infectious choruses and lush vocal harmonies of Def Leppard for a taste of what Night by Night are all about. The band members each come with their own musical pedigree (The Sisters of Mercy, Voodoo Six) – and it shows.  With flawless production (by Romesh Dodangoda -Funeral For A Friend, The Blackout, Bullet For My Valentine) and irresistible choruses, this is a rare gem of an album with ten strong songs, telling tales of hope and heartbreak.

This band impressed me when I saw them back in 2010 at The Gaff, London. They appeared alongside Violent Divine (SWE), Vanity Ink (FIN) and headline act New Generation Superstars (GB). So it’s pleasing to hear that they’ve finally recorded their debut album, set for release on July 14th (UK).

From the beautifully addictive ‘Can’t Walk Away’ to the hard rocking, ‘Siren’ and everyone’s new favourite song, ‘If Only’ – Night by Night are creating musical alchemy.

Here’s their new single ‘A Thousand Lies’.

“If you like hard rock with intensity, melody and meaning, you will find it here.  We have real passion for what we are doing and have pushed ourselves to create the best music possible – no disclaimers,  no excuses – we’ve worked hard and we are really proud of the result…”

Night by Night have toured extensively supporting the likes of Europe, Y&T, Jettblack, Heaven’s Basement, Alannah Myles, Acey Slade, The Quireboys, Jayce Lewis, Warrior Soul, Dear Superstar, The Dirty Youth as well as performing storming sets at Hard Rock Hell and Download Festival.

“Night by Night are without doubt one of the best young bands out there today.  Real songs with great riffs and vocal harmonies…youthful, fresh enthusiasm…”
Rick Savage, Def Leppard

See Night by Night live at their album launch show: Borderline, London, July 17th. They’re also playing in Bolton on 18th July at The Railway Venue.

NEWS: On tonight’s Classic Rock Show from 7pm…

I’m very much looking forward to tonight’s show as it’s been a couple of weeks since I last sat in the studio.

I mentioned yesterday that we would be playing some new music for you. In addition this, we have music released in the past 12 months from the New Generation Superstars, Fighting Wolves, Black Star Riders, W.E.T. and the Von Hertzen Brothers.

Of course, this show isn’t called ‘The Classic Rock Show’ for nothing. We’ve lined up some prime cuts by Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Aerosmith, Diamond Head, Metallica, Sepultura, Van Halen, Joan Jett, UFO, Rainbow, Y&T, Scorpions and….well, a lot more besides.

In our second post yesterday, we announced that Mr John McCoy would be joining me in the studio on Thursday, 30th January. More on that during tonight’s show, but we will play a track from one of those powerhouse trios he has worked with, Mammoth.

Make sure you catch the start of the show at 7pm [Listen Link’ can be found on our website] as it’ll be one of those nose-to-tail, good-time rock ‘n’ roll shows we like to give you every week!!

Cheers

MJx
