For those of you who asked me to play Budgie, Grand Funk Railroad, Motorhead, Uli Jon Roth, Robin Trower and others on my show on Friday night, your wish has been granted, but if you don’t tune in, you will be removed from my will!!! Oh, and if you fancy a trip into the depths of space, I’ll be doing an hour feature on the Kings of Space Rock – the mighty HAWKWIND!!
Tonight on The RockIt Scientist on Mix93.8fm, interview with the sensational DINO JELUSIC (he did a track with David’s Confession on Monday night), from around 8.15pm. This young man is exceptionally talented, as a musician and as a singer! Also, special feature on (Jon Hiseman’s) COLOSSEUM, one of the most important jazz / blues/ rock outfits to come out of the UK in the late 60’s! Plus, of course, the usual MIX of metal, classic rock, blues, etc etc. Streaming via www.mixfm.co.za or www.tunein.com. TUNE INNNNN!!!!!
VERY short notice, for what it”s worth: I’m standing in for Mike Tymvios tonight (9 to midnight) – he was out in the skids (if Kimberley can be called the skids!), and he’s only just left now to come back – he won’t make it home in time for his show, so you’re saddled with me, I’m afraid!! Mix93.8fm, streaming via www.mixfm.co.za, or www.tunein.com. No idea what I’m going to play, but it should be funnnnn!!!!!!
On The RockIt Scientist on Mix93.8fm tonight (between 8pm and midnight), special feature on the fantastic Australian prog/symphonic outfit, SEBASTIAN HARDIE, who have recently released a much awaited, and brilliant, new album, called ”Blueprint”. The feature is normally about an hour long (from 9 to 10pm), but given the length of the band’s tracks, the feature will go on for longer than an hour. Also, from around 8.15 / 8.20, I will be talking to Mel Botes and Ghapi re the exciting upcoming DAVID’S CONFESSION gig at Atterbury Theatre on Monday, August 13th (The SEBASTIAN HARDIE feature might start a bit later than 9!!). South Africa’s best, together with Australia’s best – what a combo!! Streaming via www.mixfm.co.za or www.tunein.com. TUNE IN!!!
Book NOW at Computicket for one of the best conceptual rock shows ever to be staged in South Africa! DAVID’S CONFESSION, featuring the genius of singer / songwriter / guitarist MEL BOTES and the stunning drumming and singing of GHAPI, backed by an incredible band, complete with choir and a special guest. I hope to be talking to both Mel and Ghapi on my RockIt Scientist show on Mix93.8fm, this coming Friday, from about 8.30pm (streaming via www.mixfm.co.za or www.tunein.com). This is a show not to be missed – it’s on a par with, if not better, than anything you’ve ever seen or heard, locally or internationally. Atterbury Theatre, Pretoria, MONDAY 13th August, at 8pm. See Storm Produktionz on FB for more info. Support good, original SOUTH AFRICAN music – it don’t get much better than this!
