September Rock 50 Episode Canceled

by on Sep.16, 2013, under Rock 50

Hey Everyone,

Our September 9/11 show will not be aired this month.  My apologies, especially to our regular listeners for any disappointment or inconvenience.  At this time, Rock 50 wishes to send its condolences to the families and friends of all those who perished on 9/11/01.  We send our ongoing respect to New York’s Finest as they continue to be the best emergency services in the world, and in loving memory, we bow our heads to those who courageously fell doing their duty.  Never to be forgotten, and always in our hearts.

H! Everyone,

This Saturday, August 10 will be our last hardcore rock show for 2013.  We play hardcore and other music in September, October, November and December on the 9/11 show, the Halloween show, the Armistice/Veterans Day show and the Christmas show.  I’ll do my best to get as much ass-kicking metal on this Saturday’s show.  Check us out if you like metal.

Stay safe,

Bill

Rock 50 July 2013 Preview

by on Jul.10, 2013, under Rock 50

H! Everybody,

Our live Rock 50 show airs this Saturday, July 13 at 11:00 AM Pacific Time.  I have a couple of classic cuts lined up:  “Children of The Revolution” by T-Rex  and “Man of The World”  by Peter Green/Fleetwood Mac.  Other than those two tracks, I have absolutely no idea what I’ll be playing – it will be a surprise for us all!  Tune in if you can.  I will do my best to make it rock.

Stay strong.  Stay safe.

May Rock 50 Preview

by on May.03, 2013, under Rock 50

H! Everyone,

Our Rock 50 show airs on Saturday, May 4th.  It’ll be a slightly different show, in as much as it won’t be hardcore throughout.  I turn 65 years old on May 5th, so I’m going to play some of my favourite songs I’ve loved throughout the years.  It’ll be a variety of music, and I hope it’ll be a great show.

What to expect?  Type O Negative, the “bus song” (Stargazer), Mountain, Traffic, Mastodon, Rob Zombie, etc, etc.

Check us out if you can.

Stay safe,
Bill Ward

Rock 50 Preview – Mar 2013

by on Mar.21, 2013, under Rock 50

H! Everyone,

Our next Metal show is on Saturday March 23, 11:00AM Pacific.  The show rocks.  We have a great new band The Resistance – ex-members of The Haunted and In Flames.  Also, relatively new Hatebreed.  Expect Arch Enemy, Cradle of Filth.  I’ve got some new Helloween, but don’t know yet if I can play them into the show so that’ll be a surprise.  Midway through the show we at Rock 50 will be paying our respects to the late Alvin Lee, then playing Alvin with Ten Years After at Woodstock.

Check us out if you can.

Rock forever,

Bill

Christmas Radio Show Preview

by on Dec.13, 2012, under Rock 50

H! Everyone,

Our Christmas show airs live Saturday December 15, 2012 at 11:00 AM Pacific Time. Because Christmas is often a stressful and lonely time for a lot of people, we’ll be playing, as we usually do, some sobering songs based in today’s realities.

Type O Negative, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, and a small section of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony show up in the first hour. In the second hour, we’ll be playing the greatest band that ever was, The Beatles. A one hour extravaganza of songs that helped to shape who we were and what was to come.

Upon the recent news of Ravi Shankar’s death, Rock 50 sends its humblest thanks to a timeless and relevant hero of popular Indian and Rock music. And another announcement…Rock 50 sends its thanks and admiration to the late, great Dave Brubeck. Our respectful condolences go to the family and friends.

Stay safe. Rock forever.

–Bill
