The TWS Max format is upon us, with a new rockier format AND a beefed up Zone. Part of the 2020 "More of Everything" plans for RRO, we (aka Dee, Lady Black & myself) decided to change the format to reflect the fact that Jazz-Rock Fusion is now getting its own show (with Doc and me, monthly to start but if it goes well, moving to fortnightly), and once we started, we couldn't stop lol.
So, without further ado, the show is made up of:
2pm to 4pm/4.15pm: The Rock Club
We're making part of the TWS rock music only, so expect everyone from Asia to ZZ Top in this part of the show. In this first week we'll just blast through Asia, ZZ Top, Magnum, Air-Race, ELOY, Alan Parsons Project, Simple Minds, Metallica, The Cure, The Mission, Warlock, Fiona, Big Iron D and more.
We'll also have a First Look at the NEW John Rehmel albumm Underdawg!
This part of the show will end with Rebecca Downes Sings- but on a semi-regular basis, it will become Rebecca Downes Max, as the First Lady of the Revolution herself joins us with her musings on rock, blues, fame, the industry and why she loves being live. Of course for the first new format show, it will be RBMax!
415pm to 6pm: The Zone
At this stage, we hand over to Dee and Lady Black for a mix of features from the library- Leading Ladies (occasionally in the Rock Club this one too), LSO Rocks, Gemsong (also Rock Club), Life The Universe & Everything, Movie Matinee etc, as well as the constants (New Age Lounge, Dimension X & Going to the Darkside) and 2 new features, The Comedy Zone and Pop Zone.
So the flow will be:
Pop Zone: this week, Toyah, Anastacia, Gabby Young, Elton John, OMD and more.
New Age Lounge
Dimension X: The very first Dr Who, played by William Hartnell, begins a weekly serial.
Going to the Darkside
See you at 2pm on Wednesday the 22nd of Jan 2020, only on REVOLUTIONONE.
