Rock 50 Sep 11th Preview

by on Aug.30, 2010, under Rock 50

H! Everyone,

Our Rock 50 hardcore radio show airs on 9/11/10. In keeping with the day, we will dedicate the second hour of the show to 9/11, with such artists at The Who, Elbow, Annie Lennox, Pavarotti, Pink Floyd and many more.

Our first hour will be all hardcore metal which is the norm for our show. We’ll be playing new stuff, as well as Mastodon, In Flames and Slayer.

We will NOT feature our segment “Great Hard Rock and Metal Bands and Artists” this month. Also, because of the way we program our Halloween, Armistice and Christmas shows, I may suspend the “Great Hard Rock and Metal Bands and Artists” segment until January 2011.

OK. That¹s it for now. Check us out.

Stay strong. Stay safe.

–Bill

Rock 50 Update

by on Jul.22, 2010, under Rock 50

Hi! Everyone.

Here’s an amendment to the radio announcement of 7/21/10 in which I stated Celtic Frost and Exodus would be played on the show. I couldn’t fit them in for this Saturday – I will play them in August for sure.

Rock forever,
Bill

May Rock 50 Preview

by on May.20, 2010, under Rock 50

Hi Everyone,

Because of the recent news of Ronnie James Dio’s death, our normal radio show format will be somewhat limited this month. I intend to start the show with a presentation of some of the great songs Ronnie sang on. We will honour what he brought to hard rock and metal music as a vocalist, songwriter and performer.

This month’s show was already dedicated in the second hour to Type O Negative and the recent loss of Peter Steele. We will play Type O’s music as planned.

Thanks,
Bill Ward

Radio Show March 2010

by on Mar.22, 2010, under Rock 50

Dear Friends,

The radio show airs on Saturday, March 27th this month. Bands you can expect to hear will be Dew Scented, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Old Man’s Child and newly released bands. In our series titled “Great Rock and Metal Bands and Artists,” this month’s featured band will be Traffic. Primarily a Midlands-based band in England, UK, Traffic represented a completely original and outspoken musical message to listeners throughout the world. Dynamic and everlasting, Traffic have come before us, played, and have attached their influence to rock’s finest moments.

Check us out. I think it’ll be a very good show.

H! Everyone.

The hardcore radio show is this Saturday, February 27th. We’re featuring Judas Priest in our new format “Great Rock and Metal Bands and Artists.” Last month, we featured Cream and some of their greatest work. I thought the new segment worked rather well, and I think it’s important to feature bands that have helped to influence and shape the sounds we listen to today.

Also this Saturday, we’ll be playing more Mnemic and Scar Symmetry. I hope to get some Behemoth, Celtic Frost, Exodus and brand new Zombie lined up also.

OK, so for all you Metal music lovers out there, I think it’ll be a very good show, but you’ll have to take a listen to find out if you agree with me or not.

Stay strong and rock forever,
Bill Ward
