Weekdays 10a -2p

What's happening..this Saturday is a happening

This week marks the 42nd anniversary of Led Zeppelins first gig. They played in Denmark and were billed as the New Yardbirds. The quartet played a Teen club in the early evening, then moved on to the Brondby Pop Club in Copenhagen. Are we gonna play Zep this weekend? Hell yeah we are!. Led Zeppelin a band who bridged the 60s into the 70s and brought us closer to some pretty heavy blues. Gonna have a double shot of John Lennon, his songs are statements that were the rallying cry of the Revolution. The Stones were practically a punk band early on, and their work from 65 and 66 will be highlighted. Neil Young's Harvest album will be part of our collective vibe and so will the Who....punks. We'll talk about a new book that is out now called Rock Roadie. It's by former roadie Tappy Wright. Tappy was a friend and original roadie for the Animals, also Ike and Tina Turner, Herman's Hermits, Jimi Hendrix and many others. It's his time with Jimi that is the centerpiece of the book, and the shocking revelation at the end of the book on how Jimi was actually murdered. He was done in by his manager, a man named Michael Jefferies. Tappy was in a postion to know this stuff. Look for an interview with this guy soon on our website. Birthdays gone by this week include Dead drummer Mickey Hart (67) and the late Buddy Holly.  We will have a look at this day Sept 11th, 1967...still technically the Summer of Love. Let's make September 11th, a happy day not a sad one. Peace Out. Rare Jimi
