April Rock 50 Recap

by on Apr.22, 2018, under Rock 50

Last weekend was the April edition of Rock 50.  It was the first of three consecutive shows surrounding Bill’s 70th birthday.  Much was discussed and much was played.  If you missed the show, you can check out these materials:

First is the playlist – direct from the studio and Bill’s staff.  You can download the entire playlist here.

Second is this video – which shows some highlights from the show.

Finally, you can check out the entire playlist on Spotify if you subscribe to that service.  We have the playlist available as a playlist from Bill’s Spotify account.  Save for one song, which Spotify does not have on their service (that song was “Christploitation” by Fear Factory).

H! Everyone,

Rock 50 Halloween show will air on Saturday, October 28th, 2017. We’ve got all the usual Hardcore Metal bands, kicking ass for you, and I’ve thrown in some twists and turns, and new stuff, too.  Check us out – if you like Metal, Hard Rock and just plain great songs, Rock 50 has it for you.

Have the kids wear something bright if you’re out trick-or-treating so the cars can see them, and we can see them too.  Have a spooky, safe night.

Rock forever and ever,

Bill
