Show Intro

"Evening all and welcome once again to the Joe Elliott show on this fantastic radio station that is Planet Rock. We have sixty minutes of great music for you tonight. Hopefully helping you get through this Spring? that we're enjoying...not!. And the snow has turned to rain, but it could be worse. We could be in Berlin."

Lone Star

"I saw them live at the Sheffield City Hall back in 1977 and what a band they were. That's from their second and last official album. The band are Lone Star, featuring their then brand new singer Mr. John Sloman who is one hell of a singer. The album is Firing On All Six, the song we just heard The Bells Of Berlin."

Collective Soul

"Now fronted by my sometime partner in crime with the Kings Of Chaos Mr. Ed Roland. This is Collective Soul."

"And that was preceded by Collective Soul from their 1999 album Dosage with a song called Tremble For My Beloved."

George Harrison

"He was known as the quiet Beatle, bless him. But his songwriting abilities did start coming to the forefront towards the end of The Beatles career and went on brilliantly through his solo career and there from 1974 the title track from George Harrison's album Dark Horse."

The Adventures

"Now the 80s have often been either described as or blamed for their rather large production techniques. Ahh thinking big splashy drum sounds, loads of reverbs and echoes. Everything totally over the top. Proper order."

"And before that we heard The Adventures and what a great album that is. The album is The Sea Of Love. The song we heard Broken Land."

Michael Penn

"That is a guy called Michael Penn. Sadly best known for being the fact that he's the brother of Sean. From an album called March. Fantastic tune called No Myth."

"You are listening to the Joe Elliott show on Planet Rock. It is time for a little break and when we come back, a very patriotical message."


"And before that we heard Queen getting all bombastic and brilliant from Queen II with the song Father To Son."

Def Leppard

"Now as you know this is not a request show and if I was to play a Def Leppard song, which I don't like to overindulge Leppard stuff on my show for obvious reasons. But um...and that song specifically not exactly what you'd call a rock song, but I had a very harrowing email this week from a listener. I'm not gonna go into details. I will just say that it was heartbreaking to read and I felt an absolute obligation to play this song because it means so much to him and his family. You know who you are and you will also recognise the fact that that was Def Leppard from the album X with a song called Long Long Way To Go."

Robert Plant

"Right then over to the Band Of Joy. Take it away Robert."

"And before that Robert Plant we he put together the Band Of Joy, for the second time in his career if you like. With the song called You Can't Buy My Love."


"Now if there was ever a band that I'd have liked to have seen performing on a grassy hillside as the sun is going down on one late summer's evening. No matter how much, how shall we put it?, exotic substances they may have been indulging in and home made wine having been consumed in vast amounts. I for me think it would have been Lindisfarne. Absolutely joyful to hear. And the album Dingley Dell. Here you go chicken or the egg question. Did the album title come from a Monty Python sketch?. Or did Monty Python steal it from Lindisfarne?. Who knows?. Answers on a postcard please. The album is Dingley Dell. The song we heard, the most magnificent Mandolin King."

The Rolling Stones

"Right the big hits and high tides and green grass or whatever you wanna call it. This is The Rolling Stones."

"And before that The Rolling Stones doing their best Bo Diddley with a song callled Not Fade Away."

Mott The Hoople

"Well having heard Ian Hunter perform that song occasionally on his solos shows. I have a very strong feeling that when Mott The Hoople Mark II plays some shows this summer, we may hear that song once again. It is what's known as a buried treasure from The Hoople album back in 1974. The song is Pearl 'N' Roy brackets England close brackets."

Show Outro

"And that my friends is about it for this week. It's been a real pleasure as always. I shall be back with you next week god willing at the same time."

"Until then I'm gonna leave you with this crowd. The best band ever on a treadmill. Yes, it is OK GO from the album Oh No with Here It Goes Again. Until next week see ya!."
