May 2017 Rock 50 Preview

by on May.04, 2017, under Rock 50

H! Everybody,

Our radio show airs on May 6th 2017.  It’ll be my birthday show.

I’ll be playing early, early rock influences, songs that were important to me as a kid thru my teens.  Some Jazz, Blues, early Rock-n-Roll, up to my favorite Metal bands today.  The show may be a little bit longer than normal.

Check us out, we rock!

Stay safe, stay strong, forever and ever and ever.

–Bill

Sib Hashian RIP

by on Mar.25, 2017, under Other Music

Very sad with the news of Sib’s passing.  Excellent musician.  Laughter, tears, so many fond memories.  We traversed wildly from time to time, and shared our frailties from time to time.  Thanks for the love, Sib.  Never to be forgotten.

Our sincere condolences to the Hashian family, so sorry.  RIP Sib, forever and ever and ever and ever.

Love,
Mr. and Mrs. Bill Ward

Chuck Berry RIP

by on Mar.19, 2017, under Other Music

When my grandchildren ask, what was rock ‘n’ roll?  I will open my scrapbook to a time when a guitarist, singer and songwriter played and influenced untold thousands of musicians.  Like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, I would hold onto his coattails while he illuminated a reachable path to my wildest dreams.

I’ll show my grandchildren a picture of this suited up man dancing and playing on one leg and strutting across the stage.  I’ll play the first 30 seconds or so of “Johnny B Goode.”   That’s what rock ‘n’ roll looks and sounds like, kids.  And when they ask who this man is, I’ll tell them smiling, Chuck Berry, kids, Chuck Berry.

Thanks, and RIP Mr. Berry.

Our condolences to his family and fans.

Respectfully,

Bill Ward and family
