Show Intro

"Evening all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Always a pleasure to be with you and for the next sixty minutes I intend to bring you as much pleasure as possible. Starting off with those borstal break out boys themselves Sham 69.

Sham 69

"Yes I've found myself last few months paraphrasing that song quite a lot while I'm wandering around my house singing we're gonna have a COVID clear-out. And I've been doing it so much I thought you know I have to play the original. Which is Sham 69. From an album purely just called Punk with Bortsal Breakout."

Bruce Springsteen

"So this week I have mostly been playing the new album by The Boss."

"And before that we heard Bruce Springsteen. The boss himself. The brand new album Letter To You. The song we just heard Ghosts."

Bryan Ferry

"Stepping away from Roxy Music as he had a frequent to do in the 70s on occasions. That is Mr. Bryan Ferry taken from a best of called The Platinum Collection. It is an old Dobie Grey hit from 60s. Redone 70s style there by Bryan Ferry. It is The In Crowd."

The Beatles

"If you were tuned in last week you may well remember that the first of the show was all brand new music and it's brilliant to be able to do that on occasions. As we just heard a few minutes ago. Brand new Bruce Springsteen. But for me it's equally as exciting to hear brand new remixes of old music. And it doesn't get much better than this. This is the Fab Four.

And before that The Beatles. From The White Album but it's the 2018 deluxe version, brand new remix by Giles Martin. Son of Sir George Martin the original Beatles producer with Helter Skelter.


"Old music yes, but it is a brand new collection. That's Slade from 1973 or it could have been 1974. Anyway mid 70s let's call it. The collection is called Come On Feel The Hits. It is Slade and it's their huge and fantastic hit How Does It Feel."

You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. It's time for a little break. And when we come back, well even in the quietest moments this next band were pretty super."


"And before that we heard Supertramp from 1977. It is the title track of the album Even In The Quietest Moments."

Procul Harem

"I just love songs with mad crazy chords sequences and that's a fantastic example. It is Procul Harem taken from their Greatest Hits 1967 to 1977. With A Salty Dog."

David Bowie

"Well as we are rapidly approaching the fifth anniversary of his passing.You should be prepared to be hearing a lot more of this gentleman come January. Here with The Spiders From Mars is David Bowie."

"And before that we heard David Bowie from 1972. The album is The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. To give it it's full title. With the song Star."

Dr. Feelgood

"It's such a shame that the late great Lee Brilleaux didn't really fall into folklore when he passed away. Why not?. Because he passed away on exactly the same day as Kurt Cobain from Nirvana. So whereas Kurt Cobain got the front page news, poor old Lee Brilleaux got page 16 somewhere down at the bottom. Still some of the work that he did with the band we just heard was magnificent. That track we just heard being one of them. It's from a collection called Rock And Roll Gentleman. It is Dr. Feelgood featuring the late great Lee Brilleaux on lead vocals with a song called Baby Jane."

Doctors Of Madness

"And now to a band who once proclaimed to be a perfect mixture of David Bowie and the Sex Pistols. This is the Doctors Of Madness."

"And before that the Doctors Of Madness from their 2019 album Dark Times with the Walk Of Shame."

Cheap Trick

"I just love how that song starts out as though they're about to start playing Shapes Of Things by The Jeff Beck Group or Out On The Tiles by Led Zeppelin. But then all of a sudden it just bursts out into a bona-fide glam rock extravaganza. What a song. It is Cheap Trick from their album Bang Zoom Crazy, Hello!. One of my favourite bands of all time. And absolutely one of the best songs they've done. it is Blood Red Lips."

Show Outro

"And that my friends is about it for this week. Always a pleasure. I shall be back with you next week at exactly the same time.

"So until then I'm gonna leave you breathless, which is exactly how I would imagine Andy Parker felt when he'd finished performing this particular song. From the 1976 album No Heavy Pettin'. This is UFO and Can You Roll Her. Until next week see ya. "
