This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio # 932

This week’s extravaganza was fortified with new music from Sex Clark Five, Lannie Flowers, Richard Turgeon, and Michael Slawter, and the world premiere of a track from the new Screen Test CD Through The Past, Brightly. Swept away by the giddy, we also served up a brand new Harry Nilsson cover by that Dynamic Duo of Steve Stoeckel & Rich Firestone. All this, and requests for Paul Westerberg, Buck Owens & His Buckaroos, The Damned, X, Wreckless Eric, and The Beatles, and a fresh proclamation that “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” by The Jayhawks is The Greatest Record Ever Made. It’s good to have The Best Three Hours Of Radio On The Whole Friggin’ Planet. This is what rock ‘n’ roll radio sounded like on a Sunday night in Syracuse this week.

This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio with Dana & Carl, Sunday nights from 9 to Midnight Eastern, on the air in Syracuse on The Spark WSPJ-LP 103.3 and 93.7 FM, and on the web at
