Radio archives – Rock Byways 2010

Some folks have been asking ‘What On Earth Is Rock Byways All About?”  Well, it’s really quite simple. I generally believe in the adage that there are only two types of music – good and bad, although I’m tempted to add in the category of mad, just to explain some of the tunes that get played. It’s the kind of show where you’ll find forgotten bands, forgotten songs by well known bands, bands you’ve never heard of and the odd song that is just utterly bizarre.

It’s a bit like an iPod shuffle that’s constantly going in my head, where I can leap from Slapp Happy to The Amazing Blondel via bizarre Iron Maiden cover versions and moments of utter Scots melancholy, to the ludicrous sounds of Hollywood stars murdering seventies pop tunes, while James Last limbers up for his take on ‘Silver Machine’.

It’s probably not a good idea to give you an inkling of how my brain functions, but, if nothing else, it’s a show where you’ll go from “well I never” to “sweet Jesus the pain” in a matter of minutes. Enjoy!
