Show Intro

"Evening all welcome once again to, you know what, it's The Joe Elliott Show. Yes it is right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. We've got approximately 60 minutes, one hour to play some in my humble opinion wonderful wonderful music. Starting off with a little bit of TNT. This is AC/DC."


"Yes although it times out at 14 seconds longer. It is actually the same version of the song that appears on 1976's album High Voltage. But that is from 1975's TNT. Which I'm guessing was an Australian only release. It is of course AC/DC with It's A Long Way To The Shops If You Want A Sausage Roll. Oh no wait a minute, that's next Christmases Number One isn't it. It is of course A Long Way To The Top (If You To Rock And Roll)."

The Rolling Stones

"And let's keep rocking and rolling with The Rolling Stones."

"And before that The Rolling Stones. The Jeff Basker remix of that fantastic tune from 2012 Doom And Gloom."

T. Rex

"Now that my dear friends is an absolute world exclusive. There is a yet to be released box set just round the corner. T. Rex 1972 is what I think it's called. Like I said it's not out. I don't have all the facts in front of me, but it's a five disc collection of stuff from 1972. It includes the album The Slider which has obviously been remastered. Loads of B-Side, some unreleased stuff. And the track that we just heard which is the Top Of The Pops version of Telegram Sam. Fantastic stuff there from T. Rex."

The Babys

"Right then here's Manchester's finest. No, not them. This is The Babys."

"And before that the title track of The Babys album Head First."

Bad Company

"Knob twiddling on both of those last two songs courtesy of one Mr. Ron Nevison. That is Bad Company from the 1976 album Run With The Pack with Sweet Lil' Sister."

"You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up one of the greatest duets ever recorded."

Genja Raven

"And before that a lady called Genja Raven From an album called And I Mean It. A duet that was supposedly originally intended for Mr. Van Morrison. But he dropped out and who came in at the last minute and aren't we glad. Ian Hunter. It's a fantastic tune called Junkman."

Blue Oyster Cult

"I have a big old soft spot for that song 'cause I used to hear it week in week out at Improvisions. Which was the rock club held at the Sheffield Top Rank every Sunday night. Featuring a spoken word contribution from Patti Smith it is Blue Oyster Cult. The album Agents Of Fortune. The song The Revenge Of Vera Gemini."

The Psychedelic Furs

"Right here to rock rock rock from an album called Talk Talk Talk are The Psychedelic Furs."

"And before that The Psychedelic Furs. A fantastic band. I saw them live about three years ago. Absolutely wonderful stuff. The album is Talk Talk Talk. The song, huge hit for them, Pretty In Pink."

Van Halen

"Wow just wow. So exciting to hear. Van Halen from their debut album in 1878 with On Fire."

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 at exactly the same time. So don't touch that dial."

"Until then I shall leave you with this. And we are ending on obviously on a bit of a sad note here. 'Cause there's no doubt you've heard of the tragic passing of Meatloaf over the last couple of days. There's no way I was gonna leave this show without playing some classic Bat Out Of Hell. In fact so classic it's the title track. So until next week rest in peace Meatloaf. You've rocked us for a long time and we've thoroughly enjoyed it. Until next week everybody see ya."
