Hot Rails To Hell With Del Garland

Wednesday 2pm

So, how did I get here as the Talking Heads number goes. Well, it’s all about my
warped idea of fitting in with others when I was a teenager. My recollection is
vague but I seem to recall that randomly finding a copy of “Last Exit” by Traffic in
the road (ironic?) that had been run over by a bus started my route to rock. I took it
home and to my surprise, it played, and I loved it. I then ventured out to my first
gig to see Traffic at the Fairfield Halls. I felt out of place in a “tonic” suit amongst a
tribe of afghan and denim wearing longhairs. It was brilliant and the suit became
history as my hair grew and my denim jeans became my look.
Now, I was mistakenly thinking I was the cool one. However, turning up to parties
with Quo’s “Dog Of Two Head”, Mott’s Brain Capers” and a Party 7 didn’t cut it with
the trendies and frightened the girls.
I didn’t care as I became hooked on rock with the regular visits to the Croydon
Greyhound where I was lucky enough to see the cream of classic rock as they
elevated to superstardom or fond obscurity. This was my church!
Gigs and festivals with great friends were regular and still continue today. But, it
always concerned me that there was not enough exposure to rock on the radio,
whether classic or new. So, in 2013, I saw an ad for someone to join a local
community radio station. I think my extensive music collection was the tiebreaker
and I was involved with overhauling the music library. One thing led to another and
I started presenting the “Rock Spectrum” show on Redstone Radio. When it
folded, I moved across to SUSY FM where I have always tried to mix rock in with
the standard chart and oldies stuff as well as specialist shows in rock, country.
However, my urge to present the best darn rocking tunes around has led me to
this little cubbyhole where I intend to jog your memory alongside some of the great
new music that is out there and begging to be heard.
So, young or old rockers, please join me on “Hot Rails To Hell”!

Rich Embury's Retrograde LIVE

Sunday 7pm

Rich has a long history in radio. Beginning in the 1980s with his high school show on MRCR (Mount Royal Collegiate Radio), he broke the mold and long restrictions against playing heavy metal on the air. Fast forward to the mid-1990s with the weekly CFCR 90.5FM show in Saskatoon, focusing on local music. He created his own internet radio station (originally to Pure Rock Radio), at a time when it was much more difficult and super rare to have an internet station, and many years before terrestrial FM and satellite stations put their radio feeds online.

Rich was a board member of S.O.M.A. (Saskatchewan Original Music Assoc.) and broadcast coordinator, which is where his love for supporting independent, local, and struggling bands took hold. The roots of Pure Rock Radio celebrated indie bands, mixed with better-known, major-label artists. His current radio show Rich Embury’s R3TROGRAD3 continues the tradition.

Rich Embury's R3TR0GR4D3 (Show Description)

Rich Embury's R3TR0GR4D3 is a long running, weekly live radio show, that plays “everything that rocks!” Classic rock of the ’70s and ’80s, hair metal and the glam rock of the ’80s and early ’90s, plus hard rock and heavy metal of all types and styles from yesterday to today! If it “rocks” heavily, it fits!! The show features music history, plus regular segments like "Take Cover" and others, and is a 3-hour high energy thrillride!!

Alain LaLonde LIVE

Greyfox Growl LIVE

Tuesday 5pm

The name was given to me by an old Native American friend in Colorado when I lived there for a while. He said that I sounded like a Greyfox Growling when I sang, sol kept it, and why not.
My love for Southern Rock goes way back to the 70's when I first saw Black Oak Arkansas singing Go Jim Dandy with the amazing Ruby Star on backing
vocals. Then came The Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ozark
Mountain Daredevils and of course lately among many Cadillac Three,
Blackberry Smoke, and The Sam Morrison Band. I just love the lyrics and the stories behind the songs, the honesty and friendship and the family values that Southern Rock stands for. I also love the
Dark Side and Rebel/Outlaw Country, they are full of the atmosphere of the old South.
I have also been fortunate to sing with some great bands and artists, 24 Carat Purple a Deep Purple tribute Band, Mick Underwood's Glory Road covering
songs he played with the Gillan Band and his own band Quatermass, veryhappy times. I'm also very proud of the time I spent writing songs and fronting
UK Southern Rock Band Sons Of Liberty, I currently front my new band Greyfox Conspiracy which is starting to gain a great reputation for being a dynamic, and exciting live band.
During the late 70's I hosted a Welsh language radio show as well as doing DJ spots at rock clubs around Cardiff. I enjoy listening to up-and-coming
British, European and American rock music in particular Dark Country and Outlaw Rock. I love helping new bands get a platform to showcase their own original and exciting music.
When I get the chance I compere at festivals, help with the choice of bands, and arrange for them to play.
I would like to think I am helping to restore Rock music to its rightful place and support live and new music.

Rockin' The Decades With Graham Lavender LIVE

Monday 20.00
Wednesday 4.00

I have always had a passion for music.

The first 45 I bought was “It’s Not Unusual” by Tom Jones to play on my Dansette. In the 70s I moved on to the likes of Mott The Hoople, Bad Company and Boston thereby cementing my love of rock.

Mobile DJing in the late 70s and 80s expanded my taste for different types of music and, most fortunately, my beautiful wife Frances A.K.A. My Producer shares my love for different genres. The live acts that we have seen most are Judas Priest, Asia, Journey, Paul Carrack and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Our radio story began some 8 years ago presenting Pop shows on a local radio station. Our Classic Rock show has run for 6 years plus with Frances helping me to choose the pick of new music for our listeners. In order to feature a mix of Melodic Rock, Metal, A.O.R, Hard Rock and Blues we cover the decades from the 60s to now.

We are delighted to bring our show to like minded listeners and look forward to “Rockin’ The Decades” with you.

Sunday Rock Show With Jon Wisbey LIVE

Sunday 22.00

The Sunday Rockshow is the longest running program, having had a continuous run since the station launched in 2006. Playing rock in all its various guises, from extreme hardcore and death thrash to folky indie prog and all points in between the show has built up a solid international listenership . Concentrating on the underground, the up and coming from right around the world and the forgotten gems from the archives (with odd old favorites thrown in as well) we hope the Sunday Rockshow has something to rock everyone's world." Jon Wisbey is London born but Bristolian by adoption. He has always been a self confessed rock nut and joined his first band at the age of 15. Rock DJing soon followed and he has spun the tunes in several bars and clubs around Bristol, including providing Dj support slots for the likes of The Groundhogs and Porcupine Tree. In 2002 he was asked to join the presenter line up of fledgling local station Radio 19 and then moved on to 19's successor station BCFM in 2006. His interview highlights include chats with the likes of Kip Winger, Steve Hackett, Soilwork, Vista Chino, OPM, The Devil Wears Prada and Wishbone Ash; however his proudest moment remains an exclusive natter with Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson.He is still a working musician and currently plays with space rockers

Doc Rock LIVE

Tuesday 3pm

Bad Boy on the outside, Big Heart on the inside. Doc Rock to the heavy metal scene in Pittsburgh, presents a picture that is far from the truth: arms sleeved with tattoos, Long hair, blue jeans, and a metalband t-shirt. But under that tough, bad boy exterior lives a man with a huge heart and a talent for bringing out the best in the music world.
Metal Shop 101 started in a small, local bar called the Rock-A-Bye Café nestled in the South Hills of Pittsburgh over twenty years ago as a regular DJ gig. Doctor Rock & Roll worked as a regular DJ at the Rock-A-Bye as well as doing private parties, weddings, and special event requests from area band members. After a while, local bands started coming in (to the Rock-A-Bye) after practice to have a drink, hang out, and listen to tunes. Doctor Rock & Roll becameDoc Rock. The bands started bringing in their own music to be played at the café during Doc’s show and came up with the name: Metal Shop 101. It was like going to school; they were able to hear what other bands were doing and get their own music introduced.
The bar has since changed ownership and is no longer a rock bar, but Doc Rock has managed to keep the metal fire burning in the blast furnace. After a brief retirement, Doc Rock has taken. Metal Shop 101 to a new level by launching it on , an Internet-based radio station, and keeping it dedicated to local musicians to let them get their music heard worldwide. Metal Shop 101 will stay dedicated to the local and unsigned bands giving the bands the air play they so much deserve! Still to this day the original Metal Shop 101 banner hangs in the studio as a flag for the local metal bands and dedication to them and their music. 

The Drunken Duck Show - Chris Frankum LIVE
New Releses Show 

Saturday 7pm
Thursday 5pm

Not just a knob in his shed

Chris is probably the youngest presenter here at Rock radio UK, well not youngest in age but in experience as he only started pressing those buttons in October 2023. Drill past his sarcasm and wicked sense of humour and you will find a real shy person in real life!

His first exposure to rock music was as a young child when he bought his first album “Down To Earth” by Rainbow which is currently on the wall, framed along with a special signed setlist from Graham Bonnet!. Always having a passion for any music, the 80s were a real mixed bag for his listening and collection, but rock was always his favourite.  The 90’s and 00’s were a little light whilst working, raising a family and playing football way too much (his body is now broken LOL) but Chris still kept the collection (then CD’s) growing.

It wasnt until around 2016 where Chriss passion was rekindled when listening to another station who shall remain nameless, he was instantly hooked by Inglorious on the radio.  This led to Chris and his wingman Neil, attending the Ramblin Man festival that year and from that small acorn the mighty oak grew, you will now find them both at plenty of festivals and gigs all over the country - to this date stats are roughly well in excess of 200 different bands seen live, many multiple times, equating no around 500 performances - all since 2016.  No wonder he is always skint! From 2019 Chris started to be heavily involved in the New Wave of Classic Rock facebook group and is now one of the current Admins to be found there (when he gets time he says!)

Move on to 2023 and when Dave Cyderbaby bought Rock Radio UK, Chris was around to help in the background with the tech and bouncing ideas off and one day, for a dare, he said “Ill have a go on the radio”.  The challenge was accepted and in October 2023 Chris’ radio debut was made with 1 hour of pre-recorded music from The Drunken Duck man-cave aptly named “The Drunken Duck Show”, and from then he was hooked.  A second show was quickly created “The New Releases Show” to air as many new tracks as possible.  Then after much pressure from Dave and Lee James, Chris decided to brave it and “go live”, so as of December 2023, The Drunken Duck Show has been airing live every Saturday evening from 7pm to 9pm featuring great music, banter and some regular fun features (tune in to find out).  The DD show is also repeated on Mixcloud and Spotify. 

What does the future hold? Plenty of ideas are being discussed including ways to make the DD show the de-facto go-to show on Saturday evenings, and even some live broadcasts from events.

Chris says “In this crazy messed up world of today, music is my release and to sit here in the DD man-cave, playing music I love, talking rubbish, with no one moaning at me or saying turn it off, is 2 hours or pure pleasure. I must thank all my fellow presenters who have helped me on this rollercoaster of a journey with their guidance, help and comments.”

The Mosh Pit With Stan

Monday 2pm

Stan has promised that there is absolutely no swearing in this program..... I don't believe him for a second so daytime listeners please be aware!

Muscian, music lover. Since childhood music has played an important part in life from listening to dad's vinyl records, dragging the stereo into the bathroom to blast out loud rock, or watching the kids clear a dancfloor by requesting Ozzy Osborne at the disco. Music is the 1 continual element, Spending my formative years listening to agnst ridden grunge music. Playing in metal, hard rock and even acoustic bands . I love to watch bands attend festivals and gigs. Discovering new bands is still very much one of my favourite things to do. A day without music is a bad day.

6 Degrees With Paul LaPlaca

Thursday 3pm

Paul LaPlaca is a multi-instrumentalist from the Buffalo NY area. He is a two-time first place winner for the Western NY Hottest Guitarist competition and played with several award-winning bands before moving to NYC in 1994. 

Dark Cookie's Heavy With Neil Cook

Tuesday Midday

Neil “The Dark Cookie” Cook

Born in Reading the late 60’s my musical tastes developed in the early 80’s THE best era for METAL! My first and still one of my favourite albums is Iron Maiden’s “Number Of The Beast”, The first time I heard “Run To The Hills” on top of the pops I was hooked!

From there it was a shot step into many other metallic delights, Motorhead, Saxon, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Ozzy and many, many other heavy rock directions.  Thrash Metal, Speed Metal, the remnants of the NWOBHM movement etc. even Glam, Hair and Sleaze bands like W.A.S.P, Motley Crue, G’n’R. Before long I had a Denim cut-off with patches and badges and band names embroidered by my own fair hands (who knew being a rocker was so arts and crafts) and soon after my first leather jacket which I painted and added studs to.  I was a Metal-head!

I discovered the mighty Friday Night Rock Show with the godlike Tommy Vance, I bought Kerrang every week and read it cover to cover, my bedroom being adorned with the posters of Rock Goddesses’ and the occasional Rock God for good measure, my pocket money often being spent in Sounds Records on the latest singles from the bands Tommy, Krusher or Mick et al were making our juvenile metal minds aware of.

The rest, as they say is history.  I am a life-long fan of Heavy Music.  My tastes are broad and wide, and have changed over the years, but the one musical anchor is METAL.  I still get the buzz from discovering new music, and am pleased the future of Heavy Metal is in safe hands from British bands like Tailgunner, Kaine, Absolva, Fury and of course its great to see my mighty Maiden still doing the rounds.

Today I find myself in the privileged position to share my love and enthusiasm for Heavy music on the iterweb, emulating in my own terrible way the likes of Tommy and my mate Brian (Pithers, Readings own FM rock DJ who introduced me to so much music and Rock Stars like Fish and Toby Jepson and Tony and Bob from Magnum) by sharing my music with the denizens of the web.  Plus I also write reviews for website such as UK Thrashers and Metal Temple, and who know, soon for Rock Radio UK too, like the reviews I would pour over in the back of Kerrang and Metal Hammer.

This brings me to my show here on Rock Radio UK, Dark Cookie’s “HEAVY”.  Heavy for two reasons.  One, all the music I will be playing will be from the “turned up to 11” school of Rock and well I am no lightweight either!  

I am no Muso, I cannot play in instrument, sing or am a Rock God, I don’t have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the 14th line up of this or that obscure band.  Nope I’m a Rock fan and get joy from sharing old and new music with anyone who wants to listen.  I may have some insight into this music to share, and hope my inane ramblings will not get in the way of some fine HEAVY music.

Rock Bottom With JP

Wednesday 6pm
Friday 7am

My name is Jude Pollock (or JP) and I've been presenting radio shows since 2021. I'm from Dumfries but live in Glasgow and I work in Cardiology as my day job. I have a 15 year old daughter called Evie who keeps me right. I fell into Radio after helping with a Christmas hospital request show and ended up getting my own show on that station - never thought about it before that ( well not since I sat and recorded the chart show in my bedroom as a teenager). I went on to win bronze at the national community radio awards 2022 for Best Specialist Music Show. My music tastes span indie/rock/punk/grunge/goth/alternative and I enjoy putting shows together which sit up and coming and unsigned bands along side stalwart classics. ROCK BOTTOM WITH JP is a fusion of classic rock with some new wave of classic rock thrown in along the way and some mediocre patter which I find funny if nobody else does...

Munchtime Metal Lunchtime With Tim Cunningham

Wednesday Midday

Hi l'm DJ Tim and my name is Tim!
I hail from sunny Liverpool, and have lived here all my life. I've been a musician from a very early age, and my first rock record was
'Hysteria' by the mighty Def Leppard. From there I moved onto heavier genres, from Metallica and Megadeth into Death and Carcass, but then the 90's fully hit me, and Grunge became my go-to genre! From the obvious 'Big Four', Alice In Chains are very much my bag with their blend of metal and alternative rock, but I do love heavy music from all eras and so many genres so expect an eclectic mix from Led Zeppelin to Electric Callboy!

I have been in bands since I was the tender age of 16, and have played lead guitar in Zuprowski Connection and Rain May Fall, supporting the likes of Testament, Senser, Hatebreed, Crowbar and guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. Now I am an active member of the Groove Rock band Attic Theory, who won Planet Rock's Best New Band of 2020.

My shows will feature the best heavy music from around the world, along with some deep cuts and rarities. I'll also be throwing in some personal favourites from many other eras and genres
- so keep listening!

Heads Up - Jaspa Barrott

Wednesday 00.00

Born in the Birmingham, the home of rock music and growing up through the exciting era of Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple etc. it is no surprise that I took up the guitar at the age of 12 to try to emulate my heroes.

My love of music was not soley fixed in the classic rock range by any means, anything that featured a guitar was fair game and I found myself listening to a range of styles from classical music from artists like John Williams and Sky to glam rock from The Sweet, Slade and T- Rex.


At the age of 18 I found myself serving in the RAF as a weapons technician, a job which has taken me to many different countries and taught me many times the importance of being patient and having a sense of humour


I relocated to Gloucestershire with my wife, Helene and was offered the position of rock show host on the now sadly gone MtM internet radio (a position that Helene has  encouraged and supported me in tirelessly

Pluggin' Baby with Emma Scott

Veteran radio presenter of over 30 years, Emma Scott has today revealed details of her new globally syndicated radio show.

The Pluggin Baby Radio Show is being offered as a 2-hour weekly programme to stations all over the world and features the most exciting independent talent from her radio plugging business, Pluggin Baby, which she has been running since 2013.

The show, which will be pre-recorded in her own Cambridgeshire home studio will also play established bands who have fired up Emma’s musical passion since she started her radio career back in 1988.

Acoustic sets and interviews with familiar artists and classic tracks, as well as introductions to fresh new bands should keep ears and the imagination fired up with its weekly offering.  The show is currently rattling in the blocks with already over 30 stations worldwide embracing the excitement of hosting its celebration.  “The more the merrier” says Emma with a broad mischievous grin.

As Emma shines the spotlight on her favourite artists and encounters from over the years; exhilarating new sounds will lie seamlessly side by side with the likes of “Shinedown, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Paramore, Stereophonics, Jimmy Eat World, Placebo, and of course Muse!”, the latter a band openly beloved by the lady herself.

THE PLUGGIN’ BABY RADIO SHOW is already whipping up excitement in the same way Emma has over the years with the likes of Kerrang! Radio, Metro FM, Hallam FM, Power FM, Chiltern Radio, Heart, Galaxy, Juice and many more.

In the words of Emma, “Having worked in the music industry for over 30 years, I have radio in my blood” and as the show will epitomise and the music industry can attest to over the past couple of decades or so, the supporting and promoting of new bands and great sounds lies deep in her heart, it all brought forth once more with the fun and passion only rock ‘n’ roll can inspire.

Monster Modal Meltdown With Sean McGee

Saturday 2pm

Sean McGee first found music as a boy when he was bought a cassette recorder for a birthday present.That
recorder enabled him to actually make his own radio shows, introducing the songs and even
interviewing himself as various, distinguished guests!
By his early teens, he joined a friend group who spent weekends in sweaty bedrooms, strumming cardboard
guitars to the best albums of the day. Iron Maiden, Scorpions or Led Zeppelin were the usual stable “strum
fest” of the era.True halcyon days! His late teens saw him actually with a real guitar and from those times
forward he’s never ever looked back.
As a member of many rock and metal bands, Sean has played some wonderful gigs and has made a huge
amount of friends along the way. These days he’s to be found in cosmopolitan Norwich, recording in
his home studio, but life still keeps moving forward and, as is often the way, life tends to repeat itself.
Sean is now hosting a “real” radio show, The MONSTER MODAL MELTDOWN, playing tunes by such
musicians as have inspired him to play guitar himself. In his own words: “|! wanna give something back, make
you smile and just get everyone inspired, just like it was when | was a boy”

Hard Heavy & Hair Show With Pariah Burke

Friday 11am
Sunday 5.00

Pariah Burke grew up banging his impressive head of hair to 80s and 90s hard rock, heavy metal, and hair band albums he played all the way through while wondering why even the coolest FM stations only ever played the singles. Living and playing in bands in Daytona Beach back when Bike Week was still awesome, Pariah developed a taste for Harleys and whiskey, and began DJing Bike Week events and mud wrestling. Later, somehow still in possession of his full hearing, Pariah embraced the ability of Internet radio to reach hard rock, heavy metal, and hair band fans all over the world. He started the Hard, Heavy & Hair with Pariah Burke syndicated radio show to bring to all those fans the biggest hits but even more so the non-single album tracks, the “deep cuts,” that make albums great but never get air play during regular radio rotation.

The Flower Power Hour features music from the Golden Age of Flower Power – the 60’s and 70’s, plus like-minded tunes from the 80’s right up to today.  Album rock radio veteran Ken Rundel and his wife MJ host this ode to peace, love, and rock and roll from the George Carlin Memorial Studio in the Bamboo Peace Palace, Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  They rekindle your flower power spirit with great album rock, including deep tracks you’ve forgotten or never heard of. Plus they’ll turn you on to the best new music coming out today. Period comedy and interviews with the artists are also part of our Flower Power experience.

The Flower Power Hour is available at no cost to your station and can be run as a one, two, or three hour show. It currently streams on broadcast and internet stations in the U.S., Spain, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand.

Ken Rundel’s extensive radio experience included early stays at WVIC, Lansing, MI, and w-4, Detroit. Next up was the legendary album-rocker, “The Zoo” in Dallas, where he was program director and had the #1 rated midday show. He’s interviewed dozens of musical icons and lists Joan Baez, Steve Miller, Nancy Wilson, Keith Reed, Willie Nelson, Don Mclean, Roger McGuinn, and Michael Brewer as some of his favorites. Other stops included Q-102, KZPS, KOAI, KRBE and KXCC in Texas, and the ABC Radio Classic Rock Network, where he was the top-rated jock. Ken’s also been an attorney, actor, and improv comedian and instructor.

MJ grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, addicted to the heritage album rocker, KSHE-95. Her extensive knowledge of rock and roll as well as her talent as an artist gave her incredible backstage access to all the early icons of album rock, including Cat Stevens, Alvin Lee, Jon Anderson, Donovan, Randy California, Elton John, and Ian Anderson. Her beautiful, mind-blowing posters graced the dressing room doors of all the greats.

The Flower Power Hour: Peace, Love, and Rock and Roll.

Strange Days With Steve Boyce

Friday 15.00

Being born in the late 50s meant that i grew up listening to the Beatles and the Stones. The one day in 1969 at the age of 11 I heard "In the court of the crimson king" by King Crimson and my life changed. The pop charts would never concern me again.


I have spent the last 30 years as a professional musician. I have toured and acted as a session player for one or two names. In 2014, once the last child had left home, we moved home, studio and guitars to East Anglia to try out this thing called semi-retirement. I have never been so busy.


"Strange days" was born out of a drunken night on Facebook when I was showing off my so-called knowledge of obscure bands with a couple of friends. Somebody spotted this, he was the director of a local radio station and asked me if I'd be prepared to put together a radio show. I was and I did. The first show was broadcast in January 2013.


After moving to East Anglia I hitched up with Felixstowe Radio 107.5 fm but i noticed that most of my listeners were online. The good folk of Felixstowe weren't quite ready for a show that featured Gentle Giant and Joe Byrd & The Field Hippies!!.


I stayed for two years before coming to the conclusion that I would be better off preaching to the converted via my home studio and a weekly podcast on Mixcloud.


So i now find myself putting out the same stuff through Rock Radio UK. I'm sure I'm onto a winner.

Shades Of Rock With Mimmo Caccomo

Monday 1.00
Sunday 16.00

My name is Mimmo Caccamo, I'm 66 years old Italian chap. I've been living in London for

most of my life..

I've been a rock dj from 1976 and still going strong. I've also been a rock

correspondent for an Italian monthly mag

called Rockerilla. I've interviewed a variety of bands from Nirvana to Spiritualized,

Stereophonics and Napalm Death.....

Some for the mag, other for a fanzine ( just when I started writing ) and other for my

radio shows too.

Right now I have two weekly rock shows for two Italian radios both well knows.

The music I play its mostly rock but I drop some electronica at times..

I like to play 60s /70s rock ( King Crimson, Wishbone Ash, Trapeze, VDGG, Atomic

Rooster , Babe Ruth and more...) with a look on today's scene: Psychedelic rock,

stoner, doom, and whatever I fancy.

My rock taste it's quite wide.

The Rock Vault With The Dazzler

Saturday 15.00
Tuesday 5.00

My music background bio, well, where do I start?


My first memory of liking music is 48 years ago when I was 4.. From there it was liking bands such as The Sweet, T-Rex, Terry Jacks, Pilot and Slade along with Come To Chigley soundtrack and We Are The Diddy Men (lol)


I also remember going to my Grandparents and stumbling across an old 50's record player, that used to belong to my Mother, and finding a stack of 7 inch singles next to it. I worked out how this contraption worked and enjoyed such sounds as Cathy's Clown by the Everly Brothers, Distant Drums by Jim Reeves and a whole host of Cliff Richard songs.


By the age of 8 in 1976 I had found ABBA, ELO, Status Quo which was 'music to my ears' (sorry). A dalliance with such things as Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and Frigging In The Rigging a couple of years later but I decided Hard Rock and then Heavy Metal courtesy of Motorhead via Bomber and Overkill then Ace of Spades albums.


1979 going into 1980 was such a fantastic period to find new heavy music. Such bands as Saxon, Rainbow, Sammy Hagar, Scorpions, Van Halen, Whitesnake, AC/DC and UFO etc all came to my attention, buying as many singles as I could from the local Doncaster market stalls, Angie's Records shop and Fox's Records with my pocket money. Then getting a Binatone Studio 5 HiFi system from Woolies for my birthday, road testing it in the shop with a copy of Hardware by Krokus, awesome or what!!


The 80's saw me avidly collecting vinyl records that was anything to do with Rock whether that be NWOBHM, Traditional Metal, Hard Rock, AOR, Prog, Pomp Rock, Southern Rock, Hair Metal or Glam Metal etc. Also I discovered the Friday Rock Show in 1979 hosted by one of my Idols Tommy Vance. I would listen intently with my little transistor radio under my pillow, 10pm til 12am awaiting all the fantastic bands new and old that TV on the radio would play and taping as many broadcasts as I could thinking one day I would love to do his job lol!


The same goes for going to concerts. Over the last 40 years I have seen virtually all the classic bands of the late 70's and 80's. Which got me into wanting to play guitar and starting my own bands which I never got change to do until I hit the big 4-0. I got my first guitar when I was 10 years of age so it took a while, unfortunately, working/married life got in the way!


Currently, I am the Jay Jay French in my awesome tribute band to Twisted Sister who are called Twisted System.


So there you have it, I am still collecting the vinyl, still collecting the guitars and amps (to the chagrin of my good lady lol) and now I am looking forward to, hopefully, emulating Tommy Vance and have my own show playing an hour or 2 of my favourite tracks from my 40+ years of listening to the best music in this whole Goddamn universe!


Keep Rocking.....Stay Hungry!

60s Scene With Roger Nichols

Monday 11am

My love of music started way back with the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Procol Harum etc and while my tastes are pretty broad I do still love the Psychedelic and Progressive genres in particular. I strum a bit of guitar when I get the chance but definitely for my own amusement! I started broadcasting on Hospital Radio, something that I still do and found a niche and like-minded music lovers on Rock Radio UK and I’ve been with the station for a few years now. My shows are:

The 60s Scene – I tend to focus on the years 66-69 the period when the scene was really exciting and music was developing and each new release was awaited with huge excitement.

The Walrus & The Carpenter With Roger N & Roger D

Tuesday 19.00        Thursday 9.00

My love of music started way back with the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Procol Harum etc and while my tastes are pretty broad I do still love the Psychedelic and Progressive genres in particular. I strum a bit of guitar when I get the chance but definitely for my own amusement! I started broadcasting on Hospital Radio, something that I still do and found a niche and like-minded music lovers on Rock Radio UK and I’ve been with the station for a few years now. 

The Walrus & the Carpenter – This is a show that I work on with my friend Roger D. The music is new or recent and the mix reflects the different tastes and areas of knowledge of Roger D and myself.  There’s areas where we overlap, areas where we diverge and there’s generally a glass or two of wine involved!

Amazing Sounds Astounding Music With Ian Pope

Thursday 18.00
Sunday 20.00

For over 40 years, I’ve been an obsessive rock music fan. In my mid-teens I became infatuated with the music of Genesis, Led Zeppelin and Yes. My enthusiasm for their music, and of many others, continues to this day.I have been involved in DJing and presenting radio shows in the last few years. I present a monthly show on a local internet radio station and even produce my own music podcasts. For a while I was a volunteer on the hospital radio and will admit to having played requests for Ed Sheeran! I see presenting these shows as the natural extension of being a music fan and collector.I am honoured and delighted to join Rock Radio UK to present a show dedicated to progressive music from the Seventies. I call it The 1974 Music Show, which is an ironic reference to view held in certain quarters that no music of value has been made since 1974. I intend to include the whole range of rock music from the 1970s – progressive rock, heavy rock, jazz rock/fusion, folk and other interesting stuff. I hope you will enjoy it too!

A Saucerful Of Prog With Steve Pilkington

Sunday Midnight To 2am
Wednesday 9pm

For as long as I have been old enough to listen to music, progressive rock, and classic rock in general, has been my passion – leading to stints firstly as a (failed) musician, and more recently as a freelance writer. I edited the Classic Rock Society magazine for several years until its recent demise, I occasionally write for Prog magazine and have published books on, to date, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Rainbow and The Rolling Stones, as well as writing the official biography of Gordon Giltrap. A Saucerful Of Prog is an extension of my own love for the music, pushing the boundaries of the genre as far as they can go, while showcasing plenty of contemporary artists as well as regular dips back into the vaults.


For those who like to know such things, the first gig I ever attended was Deep Purple Mk IV at Liverpool Empire in March 1976 (I was 14), and the first album and single I bought were The Slider and Children Of The Revolution by T Rex (I was 11). My favourite album is Still Life by Van Der Graaf Generator, my favourite track is Stargazer by Rainbow, and my favourite gig attended is a three-way tie between Black Sabbath in 1977, Marillion at the Marquee in 1982 and Pink Floyd at Earls Court in 1994. But there have been so many great ones besides!

Taking Care Of Business With Colin Howard

Tuesday 21.00
Saturday 4.00


Hi, I’m Colin Howard. I was dragged up in the sixties and seventies in the Manchester area of the UK.

Music, like food and oxygen, has always been an important part of my life; indeed, life’s memories and events are often recalled by music.

I grew up with a sister who was 4 years older than me, so I was exposed to music, particularly the Beatles, from an early age.

The first album I bought was Led Zeppelin II and then Deep Purple in Rock and, over the years, my tastes extended to include Focus, Steely Dan and Emerson Lake and Palmer. My favourite band of my teens, however, was Ten Years After, with the late, great Alvin Lee on lead guitar. I was fortunate to live in area with a lively, live music scene, seeing in concert, Ten Years After, Focus, Supertramp and The Moody Blues and being in a rock band, which played in the Stockport area in the mid-1970s.

I have a very varied taste in music and enjoy listening to all types – not all of them rock.

Outside music, my interests are football, our cats and I have written, and had published, two books on the West Somerset Railway, which is a steam railway in the south-west of England.

I love sharing my music and look forward to interacting with you on Rock Radio. Please send me any comments or requests to

Imaginarium With Roger Nicholls

Thursday 13.00
Saturday 10.00

My love of music started way back with the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Procol Harum etc and while my tastes are pretty broad I do still love the Psychedelic and Progressive genres in particular. I strum a bit of guitar when I get the chance but definitely for my own amusement! I started broadcasting on Hospital Radio, something that I still do and found a niche and like-minded music lovers on Rock Radio UK and I’ve been with the station for a few years now. My shows are:

The Imaginarium of Wonderful Weirdness – I tend to stick to a theme with these programmes but that theme can be anything from Alice in Wonderland, The Canterbury Scene, New Prog, New Psyche, a particular record label etc. It will sometimes feature interviews or even the odd slice of poetry depending on the theme. The music might be contemporary or from previous decades but there will be something that ties it all together.

Rock Of Ages With Lucas Campbell

Monday 17.00
Thursday 4.00

I became interested in music as a young autograph hunter in Blackpool waiting outside The Opera House asking musicians and pop stars to sign my autograph book and any pictures of them that I had collected.  The most memorable moment of that period was meeting Gene Vincent. Another such moment was meeting all the Radio Caroline Jocks at The Queens in Cleveleys in 1966.  I started learning guitar at the age of about nineteen with the idea of becoming a songwriter but it wasn’t until 1978 I thought about forming my own band which was to be Ideal Types which contained some of the most creative musicians I have ever known. After the demise of Ideal Types I played with one or two local outfits and did sound mixing and roadie for another local band in the 80’s.  During the 80’s I continued to write more songs filling brown envelopes with cassettes to send to music publishers which always seemed like a thankless task. In the early 1990’s some of legwork paid off with a number of instrumental themes accepted for publication and release on 'Panama' an international music library label. All of these themes have been included in TV documentaries and films on worldwide release as background & incidental music, some have been used just recently in the series Dalziel & Pascoe.  In 1995 I established my own record label “Twosome Records” and released my CD Album “He Was A Dreamer” the title track receiving airplay on BBC regional stations. Another song “In Time” was played on BBC Radio Northamptonshire in 1997 as a tribute to Lady Diana. In 2007 “Southbound Train” a southern rock song was released on NBT Records USA on their “Ride The Train” Series. In 2002 I was approached by C.FM a local radio group to present a rock show on their early trial broadcasts, eventually becoming one of the founding directors, sadly it was all to end in tears when I resigned on air in February 2008 due to a change in music policy which meant my show was to be downgraded. However, I was approached by several internet radio stations in the USA & Canada after they had read my story, this enabled me to continue to present my show on the internet which was broadcast 5 days a week by ‘Smokin Tunz Radio’ & twice a week on A slogan ‘From the UK to the USA ‘The Rock of Ages Show is Comin’ Your Way’ was borne when I became part of the ‘Smokin Tunz’ line up in May 2007, the show became so popular that the owner Brian Boone even had a 24 hour ‘Rock Of Ages Radio Show Rock-a-thon’.  Sadly Brian Boone died in November 2009 and ‘Smokin Tunz’ had to close down at the end of December.  I was approached by several internet stations but I was delighted when I was asked by Norma Jean ‘The Queen of Classic Rock’ if I would like to continue broadcasting my show in the USA on ‘The Red Eye Radio Network’ as we both had great mutual respect for the late Brian Boone who believed in us, I felt an immediate affinity with Norma and I just ‘Knew’ that ‘The Red Eye Radio Network’ was the right station for ‘The Rock of Ages Radio Show’ which is now broadcast world wide on thirteen different stations.  I also continued to run BJ’s Blues Club here in Chorley which became the most successful blues club in The North West. “Keeping Live Music Alive” was my slogan for the continuing quest to give longevity to the Club whose name is taken from my late friend BJ, it was his last request to me, to continue as the promoter for the club.  I am often called a ‘Rock Guru’ but in truth I am a campaigner for so many bands and pioneering musicians who appear in my show who I feel have been sidelined far too long and don’t receive their due recognition for their contributions to music. To take a tag line from my radio show “Seminal Bands, Definitive Tracks, Forgotten Songs & Unsung Musical Heroes” is possibly the best description of my musical homily. All I do is for ‘Love, these are my Hobbies, my Passions, my Desires to ‘Keep Live Music Alive’ today and to ‘Keep The Memories Alive of The Great Musical Heroes’ Who Made It All Happen’ for me from the late 60’s…70’s… ‘May The Great Spirit Watch Over Each and Everyone Of Us ’Until We All Meet Again’.  This was written by me after I lost 4 very dear friends who believed in me and gave me the confidence to carry on with my ‘Dreams of making my pastimes my ‘lifes' work’. "We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams" Lucas Campbell.
