We all know that there were many “classic” and influential bands that emerged from the UK in the late 60’s / early 70’s. This coming Friday night, between 8pm and midnight, you will be able to hear a whole bunch of tracks from what I consider to be “The Big Four”, namely BLACK SABBATH, URIAH HEEP, DEEP PURPLE and LED ZEPPELIN, on my RockIt Scientist show on Mix93.8fm. Joining me in the studio will be Mike “Spandex” Tymvios, Manie “The Hunk” (cough…!) Grove and Vivian “Farmboy” Bannatyne. We will be debating / arguing the merits of each band, and we will be asking YOU to send us your views and opinions, and to let us know which band is your preference, on our mini “Battle Of The Supergroups!” There will be give-away cds of each band, and one REALLY lucky listener, preferably female, although he doesn’t mind either way, will get to go on a date with our resident stud, the aforementioned MANIE. who, together with Mike and Viv, recently appeared as the centrefold in the new men’s magazine “Life After 60” :-)))If all goes well, we will be broadcasting from our new studios, which none of us know how to operate yet, so, between the great music, the usual risqué banter that will invariably make up much of the night, and the mistakes in the studio that are bound to happen, it should be a fun evening!! So: diary note: The RockIt Scientist show on Mix93.8fm, Friday 21 February, from 8pm! Audio streaming via www.mixfm.co.za. “See” you then!

RockIt Scientist Tonight

No special feature on The RockIt Scientist on Mix93.8fm tonight, just four hours of good old fashioned rock ‘n roll, blues, jazz, metal, prog, etc etc – a veritable feast of music to make your feet tap, your heart sing, and your brain drift off into some distant place, away from the trials, tribulations and negatives that seem to be taking up so much of our time and lives lately!!
