Transmission 2317 - Hail! Hail! Rock 'n Roll

We're all Chuck's children!

Chuck Berry
David Bowie
The Rolling Stones
John Lennon
Ted Nugent's Amboy Dukes
The MC5
Mark Doyle & The Mechanics

"they're really rockin' in Boston"


*The long instramental before the outro was Chuck's Concerto in B Goode and the coda I'm Through With Love is from the OST of the most excellent Hail! Hail! Rock 'n Roll concert film featuring Keith Richards and an all-star cast. Check it out below.

** As if losing one iconic CB wasn't enough, the enigmatic Chuck Barris passed this week. Not only did he create the Newlywed Game and Dating Game and host the infamous Gong Show, he also wrote Palisades Park famously recorded by Freddie Cannon and was the subject of the film adaption of his "autobiography" Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind that was directed by George Clooney and starred Sam Rockwell. Chucky baby, you still kill me!
