TVRDO 463 Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th of November
Paul Carrack, singer/songwriter and musician features in this last episode of TVRDO in november. Paul takes us through his carreer, the songs he wrote which became major hits and the songs he wrote for others, which eventually lead him to be reckonised in the world of music. In this hour he talkes about Ace, Squeeze, the Eagles, Michael McDonald, Linda Rondstadt, Diana Ross, Mike and the Mechanics, Eric Clapton and the Faces. A spell which he doesn't want to rembered by is the band Warm Dust, a band he started his carreer with, which made Prog Rock, and according to Paul they took themselves far too serious. Well we let you be the judge of that, since in the 2nd hour (TVRDOverdrive) on the setlist is a 20 minute track from Warm Dust but also Camel and Catherdral.
The Paul Carrack Special is on Glassrock.nl this Saturday between 21:00 and 22:00 hours.
The full two hours is on PopRockFM.com on Sunday between 20:00 and 22:00 hours,
All times GMT +1

Stay with me tonight sings Sylvia Tosun on the Trans-Siberian Orchestra album "Beethoven's Last Night" released 20 years ago, well at least for one hour since we have new releases from Polish band Millenium, Mandela from the UK feat. Rhys Marsh, King Crimson drummer Gavin Harrison teams up with Antoine Fafard for some jazz rock instrumentation, Nik Kershaw goes back to his childhood and is mesmorizing the Old Grey Whistle Test, Genesis, Queen and many others in the track "Babylon Brothers" from his new album, the ESP project is also present with their latest album "Phenomena", to the Swiss mountains we go with The Spiral Orchestra before we go over the border to Italy where we have a new song by Il Bacio della Medusa, from their recently released live album "AnimAcusticA", and of course our album of the month "Nine Witches Under A Walnut Tree" by Oscilazione Alchemico Kreative. The Live Act this hour is another one from Big Big Train and their album "Empire". In the Vault we find Les Fleur de Lys (the old band of Gordon Haskell) and they had the same inspiration that year as Procol Harum. It only made the charts however in Australia in 1967.

We are on the air Saturday between 21:00 and 22:00 on Glassrock and on Sunday between 20:00 and 22:00 for the full trip of 120 minutes.

Night time clouds are being swept away is a text on the re-release of Procol Harum's "Something Magic", did they have a vision back in 1977 on the Covid vaccin I wonder but according to Swedish new wave band Kai Martin & Stick they can now remember it whether it's coming from the East of the Sun or West of the Moon according to Brazilian band Sagrado Coracao da Terra from their release 20 Years ago. Now, enough prose. New releases in this hour by French outfit Celestial Burst featuring our own Anneke van Giersbergen, Rick Miller (his 2nd this year), Hyco from the US, This Winter Machine, Fiaba (from Italy) and UK one man band Looking-Glass Lantern. Also a special release from Porcupine Tree recorded in the Royal Albert Hall in 2010 in an intimate and all acoustic setting which has just been released for a wider audience. Of course we pay tribute to Ken Hensley who left us on the 4th of November with a track chosen by Uriah Heep connoisseur Gerard de Jong.
The Overdrive show, the 2nd hour, two long tracks by Now from Belgium lasting 30 minutes over and Lee Abraham, of Galahad fame, informing us the Season is turning.
