On Sunday 23 August, Get Ready to ROCK! Radio chats to two influential artists, but with widely differing musical styles.
Maggie Bell has been described as “the UK’s Janis Joplin’ and she lent her gritty, soulful vocal to influential blues rockers Stone The Crows in the early-1970s.
In September, that band’s first two albums are reissued by Angel Air Records and in an hour special Maggie chats about that period of her career and her subsequent solo history. (16:00 GMT).
Kevin Godley was a founder member of 10cc who had great success throughout the seventies and perhaps best known for their worldwide hit ‘I’m Not In Love’ in 1975.
In the 1990s, Kevin pursued a parallel career making music videos for artists such as Bryan Adams and U2 together with Lol Creme with whom he also fashioned several albums. More recently he published his first novel ‘Spacecake’.
Kevin discusses his career with Pete Feenstra (19:00 GMT).
Get Ready to ROCK! Radio was set up in 2008 and aims to reflect the wide musical content at www.getreadytorock.com. The station broadcasts for 18 hours a day and regularly showcases artists with special features and in-depth interviews.
The station is available via the Tunein phone app, on many internet radio sets, and also via iTunes as well as via the dedicated website.
On Sunday 28 July 2019, David Randall celebrated his 600th show. “Assume The Position” started in June 2007 on UK City Radio before transferring a year later to Get Ready to ROCK! Radio. The show includes tracks played on the first show plus Upton Blues Festival highlights, new music and the regular features “Live Legends” and “Anniversary Rock” which this week celebrates the Island Records label 60th anniversary.
