InbetweenTheScreams and The Republic of Rock: The Vinyl Word

As an absolutely rabid lover of music from a very early age and a stubbornly resolute supporter of vinyl, it gives me great pleasure to announce that I will be the resident vinyl music reviewer on South African award winning rock DJ’s Gary Cool’s REPUBLIC OF ROCK site.

I will be the host of THE VINYL WORD, reviewing both latest vinyl releases and classic vinyl in a weekly item.

I am really excited to be able to take a look back through my vinyl collection and eagerly look forward to bringing you some of the classic albums that defined my life from the likes of AC/DC, Suicidal Tendencies, The Cult, Metallica, Led Zep and Testament to name but a few and also some of the mouth watering releases coming up, none more so than the imminent release of the latest A Day To Remember album, Bad Vibrations.

Hold on tight, it’s going to be a thrilling ride and a huge thanks to Gary Cool for asking me to be part of his own unique brand of musical crazy.

Give the inimitable Gary Cool a follow on Twitter HERE

for all the latest news on the imminent launch. And with Gary at the helm it is bound to be a success.

Rock Radio: Take The Power Back

You only have to have a brief meander through this site to see that recently it has been consumed with the demise of Team Rock Radio, the subsequent silence from Team Rock and the loss of something that had redefined ROCK RADIO as we know it. It is also clearly evident that there is an apparent desire to retain the essence of everything that worked on that station and perhaps build a future around that inclusive, community-minded ethos.

And so it is maybe time to start asking those important questions that will identify whether there is truly the groundswell so apparent to turn this from a possible winning idea into a fully realised and engaged reality.

With that in mind, perhaps the most critical question would be, how strong is that support?

So here is your chance to make your mark, raise your voice, pledge your allegiance and commit to taking the power back and building OUR future radio.

Are you in?

It is really important that you take a brief moment to participate in this poll as it will give an indication of the support that this venture could expect.

You can do so by CLICKING HERE for Twitter users and HERE for Facebook followers.

To truly gauge the strength of support it would be brilliant if you could all participate, after all this will be YOUR radio station, and then encourage your own friends and followers to do exactly the same. That way we can get this rolling as soon as possible.

We have an incredibly strong community that can rise from the ashes of TRR and create something that will redefine rock radio. Here’s your chance to start to make that happen.

Cheers all,

Gary
