This week Derek Shelmerdine is covering for host Dave Roberts on his show Music for Grown Ups on Meridian FM, 26 October 2017.
This will be Derek’s second solo radio show – and its three hours long!
There will be music from Cream, Jr Walker, Muddy waters, James Brown, Gram Parsons, Brewers Droop and a host of other great bands and artists. There will be stories behind the songs, a mini-biography of Gram Parsons, song-links, a little bit of rock’n’roll history and lots more… This is Rock’n’Roll Unravelled’s second solo outing – it’s going to be a lot of fun!
The show is based on information in Derek Shelmerdine’s book Rock’n’Roll Unravelled, which tells the story of rock’n’roll from its roots to mid-1970s punk. Not just the story of the music but also the external events which influenced it, such as the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights struggle.
Watch this space for the opportunity to hear the show again…
