FAB! This week's TIRnRR was taken over by Bruce Gordon, whom rockin' pop fans know and love as Mr. Encrypto (and, more recently, as a member of Pop Co-Op, whose debut album Four State Solution is your favorite album of 2017). Bruce has long held the theory that The Beatles' influence was so pervasive that every track released by John, Paul, George, and Ringo inspired at least one attempt to copy it, rewrite it, and pass it off as an original track. Bruce explains this beguiling concept in full at Let's Be The Beatles, but for now, we'll use it as an excuse to slap together The Best Three Hours Of Radio On The Whole Friggin' Planet. Bruce has come to Syracuse twice before to do this on TIRnRR, and this week's edition cast its Beatle beams on the influence of A Hard Day's Night. Bruce has been a friend for years, it's always a delight to see him in person, and he puts together a pretty damned good radio show, too! He'll be back to do it again (WAIT--wrong band!) in two weeks: join us on March 26th, as Bruce Gordon and TIRnRR present Let's Be The Beatles Vol. 4: "Beatles For Sale." Hey--that's MY favorite music! I'LL be there!
HEADS-UP, PEOPLE! If you're in the Syracuse area this week, you should be at Funk 'N Waffles on Thursday, March 16th, for a Happy Hour show starring Andy Bopp, ace frontguy for ace pop combos Love Nut and Myracle Brah. It's a mere $5, the show starts at 5 pm, and we expect to see you. And 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 streams live on Sunday nights from 9 to Midnight Eastern, exclusively at www.westcottradio.org
