Hi, I’m Gene Stevens – with the latest in our year-long exploration of music genres, following features on swing and soul, doo wop, rockabilly, surf and folk-rock. It’s time to tune that Gibson Les Paul electric guitar that’s been a hard rock staple for decades, and discover ‘When Rock Got Hard’.
I’ll trace the evolution of hard rock from the 1950s till its full bloom in 1968 – now 50 years ago.
Then a major ‘Vintage Canadiana’ spotlight on Paul Anka, about to turn 77; we’ll hear 6 decades of his songs including some rarities.
That’s all on the next Vintage Favourites this Sunday at 2, from Zoomer Radio.
