Wyrd Ways Rock Show 290

On this week’s Wyrd Ways Rock Show, which can be downloaded here, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the debut album by Judas PriestRocka Rolla by playing a few tracks from it.  It’s certainly different to what came after!

As for the rest of the show, if you like it slow, we’ve got new stuff from Craang and Snailking.  If you want something to wave your plastic sword aloft to, we’ve got stuff from Edguy, Viathyn and Megasonic.  We’ve also got some new Cannibal Corpse for those who like their music brutal.

There’s a Record Of The Week, too, and a Covered… Dr Jim’s here with another Hammer Of Retribution and Elfie’s got another Shock Of The New for us.  What more do you need?

In this week’s show, there’s something of a focus on well-known venue not so far from me.  The Snooty Fox in Wakefield.  It’s been threatened with closure, so the owner, Malc Shipman, has got an appeal going on GoFundMe at http://www.gofundme.com/d7x7s0.  Help out if you can.  The Snooty Fox is an important venue.  It can’t be allowed to close.
