Show Intro

"Evening all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Good to be with you once again albeit still locked down. Fantastic response by the way to last week's NHS special. So happy I could give you all a clap just the way that we're giving the NHS a clap on Thursday nights. 60 minutes of magic music for you tonight starting off with the wonderful Mr. Ricky Warwick."

Ricky Warwick

"Featuring yours truly on bass guitar believe it or not and the wonderful Mr. Scott Gorham on guitar who also introduced that song. It is from Ricky Warwick's first solo album that I co-produced with him and Ronan MucHugh back in 2001, almost 20 years ago. It is the title track. the album is called Tattoos And Alibis."

Ian Hunter

"OK here with a song that the title of I misread so badly once it had the author spitting his drink all the way across the room. This is Ian Hunter."

"And before that Ian Hunter with a song from 1989's album YUIORTA. He sent me an advance copy on cassette with handwritten song titles and I thought that that particular song was called Women's Institution. Apparently it wasn't. It is the wonderful Woman's Intuition."

The Rolling Stones

"Nice to see that Mick and the boys have got a brand new song out. Which just apparently coincidentally all seems to be about the lock down situation. But there from 1983. the title track pretty much of their album Undercover. The song is called Undercover Of The Night."

Dan Reed Network

"So moving swiftly on say hello to the Dan Reed Network."

"And before that Dan Reed Network. Did a few gigs with Def Leppard back in the early 90s. The album is Slam. The song Rainbow Child."

Joe Cocker

"That my friends is taken from one of those classic music for pleasure compilation albums that used to come out in the early 70s. That you could pick up in a second hand store for about 50 pence. It is the wonderful Joe Cocker. The album is called With A Little Help From My Friends. The song Sandpaper Cadillac."

"You are listening to the Joe Elliott Show on the wonderful Planet Rock. It is time for a little break. And when we come back, we're gonna get down and dirty with some carbon canines...huh?."

David Bowie

"And before that for David Bowie fans often referred to as the trilogy. Three songs in one if you like that opens Side Two of the album in its original format when it was released in 1974. We just heard Sweet Thing, Candidate and Sweet Thing reprise."

Be Bop Deluxe

"In this listeners humble opinion that folks is by far the best track from that particular album. It is Be Bop Deluxe from the album Modern Music with Down On Terminal Street."

Kristeen Young

"Right it's time to unleash the ladies mostly. Starting off with Kristeen Young."

"And before that Kristeen Young produced by one Mr. Tony Visconti. And absolutely wearing her Kate Bush heart on her sleeve. It is from an album called Music For Strippers, Hookers And The Odd Onlooker. Gotta love that. The song Son Of Man."


"I discovered the other day that I heard for the very first time in what probably 40 odd years an actual album track by that band. Yes I'd only ever had Best Of compilations by Blondie. But I recently took possession of a copy of that album and it's fantastic. It is Parallel Lines. The song Fade Away And Radiate."

Show Outro

"And that my friends is about for this week. It's been a real pleasure as always. I shall be back with you next week at exctly the same time for more of the same only just a little bit different."

"Until then I'm gonna leave you with this. Having just played Blondie who burst out of the New York new wave punk scene in the mid 70s and then took over the world. Here's another band that did pretty much the same thing. Celebrating this week the 44th anniversary of the release of their first album. Albeit none of them are alive to actually celebrate that fact. This from their debut album is the Ramones. So important are they we're going out with two of their songs back to back. So until next week. Ramone on folks. And see ya!."
