Show Intro

"Greetings my fellow music lovers and welcome to once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Great to be with you once again. We've got one hour. There's sixty minutes to plow through some wonderful music. Again there are some significant moments in the history of rock tonight. Some of them worldwide. Some of them very specific to the Sheffield City hall. I'll tell you all about that later. It cracked me up when I heard about this. What are we gonna start off with tonight?. 45 years since they released this particular song. This is the Sex Pistols. 45 years."

Sex Pistols

"It doesn't seem that long to me I've got to be honest. I was there when it was happening. I was a 16 year old kid listening to these bands really taking music and giving it a good shake. And giving me the confidence to wanna be in a band 'cause I thought well if they can so can I. And there they were from the album Nevermind The Bollocks. The Sex Pistols with Anarchy In The UK."

Michael Monroe

"Right then in precisely four minutes time a fantastic tune by Dunfermline's finest. But for right now here's a great cover of one of their songs by one Mr. Michael Monroe."

"Before that Michael Monroe once of Hanoi Rocks doing a cover of an old Nazareth song called Not Fakin' It. Which was also the title of Michael's 1989 solo debut album."


"Now a couple of buddies of mine Andy and Dave went to see The Australian Pink Floyd this week. And they were at the Sheffield City Hall. And as they were waiting for the house lights to go down and the band to come on they were looking round the place and saying to each other things along the lines of look that's where we sat for Be Bop Deluxe. And then they'd point up to the balcony and say that's where we were for Black Sabbath and Van Halen etc etc. And Dave relayed one of these great stories that can only happen once in a lifetime where they said do you remember when we went to see Nazareth and there were two old ladies sat next to us and we wondered why they were there. And apparently they'd turned up because they thought they were at some kind of nativity play because of the word Nazareth. I just thought that was quite amazing that they probably sat there listening to Nazareth maybe playing that song from Razamaneth, Bad Bad Boy and wondering what the hell is going on. I just thought that was amazingly funny."

Brian Protheroe

"Right to a gentleman who started out as an actor, became a singer, and then went back to acting again. This is Brian Protheroe."

"Before that we heard Brian Protheroe. As I said in the announcement once an actor, then a singer, and now an actor again. The song a hit for him in about 1874 called Pinball."

George Harrison

"I played that specifically from that particular record because very prophetically the title sums it all up really. All Things Must Pass. George Harrison. The song Wah Wah. And indeed he was right all things must pass. George Harrison passed 20 years ago this week. I can't believe it's that long. I was just starting to watch the new Peter Jackson documentary on The Beatles last night. It's absolutely stunning. If you haven't tuned into it yet please do. It's a fascinating piece of work."

"You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up some not too disgraceful behaviour by Yes."


"And before that Yes from the 2003 remastered edition of the Yes album we heard Yours Is No Disgrace."

Ian Hunter

"Now it can be said that for some 70s artists the 80s were a bit of a struggle. Other than the Let's Dance album David Bowie struggled in the 80s a bit. Ian Hunter was pretty much relegated to doing the odd song for the odd soundtrack. But when he pulled one out boy did he pull one out. And there from the original soundtrack of the movie Teachers we just heard (I'm The) Teacher."

Eddie Money

"Well now that this cold weather looks like it's here to stay I think we could all do with a pair of these. This is Eddie Money."

"And before that Eddie Money from a collection called simply Super Hits with Two Tickets To Paradise."


"Absolute pop rock at it's absolute best there. Big old chunky riff but loads of melody. That is 10CC from 1972. The album is Sheet Music. The song Silly Love."

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 because where else would you wanna be other than this wonderful radio station."

"So until next week I shall leave you with this. From 1973 the album For Your Pleasure. This is Roxy Music and Do The Strand. Until next week see ya!."
