Server Issues

Our apologies – but due to issues beyond our control, we have been experiencing server issues with our stream for the past week. These issues are slowly being fixed and the stream will work when you tune into our web site. However, 3rd party sites (like iTunes and TuneIn radio) will take about a week until they catch up. Again – our sincere apologies for this interruption to your Classic Rock listening!

New Neil Young Tracks Added

Neil Young - Peace Trail
Neil Young – Peace Trail

I have just added 2 new tracks into high rotation from the latest release from Neil Young. The album is called Peace Trail, and its content tackles the controversial topics of today – including The Dakota Access Pipeline and corporate greed. With a more stripped-down acoustic sound featuring bassist Paul Bushnell and drummer Jim Keltner it is a worthy listen from a man in his sixth decade or producing music. Listen for the tracks Indian Givers and Peace Trail.

On another note – there may be intermittent interruptions in the Choice Classic Rock streaming service for the next little while. The company I have contracted with that provide this service is battling an overload on their servers. This is restricting the information that usually flows with each track (the Artist and Song Title) – and may result in a the odd drop-out of the stream. Please know that I have made them aware of this and they are doing all they can to correct the issue.

Thanks for listening – and here’s to a great Classic Rockin’ 2017!

Choice Classic Rock – classic rock like you’ve never heard it before!

New Blues Release From The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones - Blue & Lonesome
The Rolling Stones – Blue & Lonesome

The Rolling Stones have very recently released Blue & Lonesome – where they have gone into the studio and covered an album’s worth of Blues standards. It is a return to the Stones origins – but with a more matured sound. I have added a few songs from the album into high rotation. Listen for Commit A Crime, Hate To See You Go, I Can’t Quit You Baby, I Gotta Go, Just Like I Treat You and Ride ‘Em Down.

I also added a new track into high rotation from the latest album from Robbie Robertson (of The Band). The album is called Testimony and is a snapshot of his career with The Band, Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Dylan and solo. Listen for the title track to the album – Testimony.

Also new into high rotation is a track from the latest release from Queen. The album is called On Air and the track is a fast version of their song We Will Rock You, which was recorded October 28th, 1977 for the BBC. I think you will agree it is a very interesting early interpretation of the song!

And lastly – I just want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season. To celebrate – I have added some classic rock artists doing select Christmas songs into the rotation. Enjoy the season!

Choice Classic Rock – classic rock like you’ve never heard it before!
