H! Everyone,

Our next Rock 50 radio show airs Saturday, August 13th, 2016 at 11:00 AM Pacific Time. In keeping with the Rock 50 July summer show theme, we’ll play one hour of Metal and Hard Rock dedicated to the fans at the summer Rock shows and the bands out there touring.

In the final hour of our show, equally dedicated to lovers of great music, we’ll play classic, everlasting songs that have prevailed through the best and worst of times: Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, bands that got us through the Sixties and beyond, who are still relevant today.

Check us out. The show will kick ass.

Stay safe. Stay strong forever and ever.

–Bill

Rock 50 Preview – Feb 2016

by on Feb.25, 2016, under Rock 50

Dear Everyone,
 
A belated Happy New Year to you all. Our radio show airs on Saturday, February 27, the first show of 2016. After such sad news over December 2015 and early January 2016, we at Rock 50 will be playing some commemorative music to rejoice and honor the lives of Lemmy Kilmister and David Bowie. In December 2015, we had planned that Phil “Philthy” Taylor, longtime drummer with Motorhead, would be our featured drummer for our drum segue – it’s going to rock, check us out. We also pay our deepest respects to the families and fans of Glenn Frey, Natalie Cole, Jimmy Bain and Maurice White. RIP. Their music will live on forever.
 
Stay strong,
Bill

November Rock 50 Preview

by on Nov.17, 2015, under Rock 50

H! Everyone,

Our Rock 50 show airs on November 21st, 2015.  In keeping with November 11th, Veterans and Armistice Day, our show will be in two parts, starting at 11 AM Pacific, the first hour will be Metal wall to wall.  Our second hour, around noon time, will be songs to honor the fallen of all wars since 1914 and the Armistice of November 11th, 1918.  We say thank you to the men and women who have served and survived.   We will remember the homeland suffering, as well as the bitter loss that war is.  We hope to bring an honorable and reflective mood to our last hour, and if you like hard-core Metal we’ll pound you in our first hour.  No drum segue this month or on our Christmas show.  Drum segues come back on our January 2016 show.

Stay safe.  Stay strong.

–Bill

H! Everybody,

Our radio show airs on Saturday, September 12, 2015.  We’ll be playing great metal and new metal releases.  Our drum segue will feature Ian Paice of Deep Purple fame, a great and innovative rock drummer.

We’ll also be making a special dedication for those who died and those who still mourn and feel the effects of the devastating terrorist attacks on 9/11 2001.  We’ll play some Beatles, Foo Fighters, Cream and Jimi Hendrix as a way of paying our respects.  Although a solemn occasion, the show will rock.  Check us out if you can.

Stay safe and rock forever and ever,

Bill
