Rolling Stones Guitarist Ronnie Wood Scores Two Radio Awards
The radio dial seems like a comfy place for rockers to head in their later years and share their tales of decades of hanging with the musicians who embody the playlists. Just look at Alice Cooper and Nikki Sixx, who get heaps of praise for their syndicated rock shows.
Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood is also getting heady high-fives for his radio program, 'The Ronnie Wood Show,' which airs on the U.K.’s Absolute Classic Rock station. Wood scored two trophies at the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards on Wednesday (July 6), according to NME.com, including the coveted Specialist Programmer of the Year and Newcomer of the Year honors.
Earlier this year, Wood won the Music Radio Personality of the Year trophy at the Sony Radio Academy Awards.
Wood’s show delivers “a playlist that comes straight from his heart, playing music that he loves and is passionate about, all accompanied by his uniquely fascinating stories, experiences and memories and using his trusted guitar to illustrate elements of the tunes played and to accompany him,” according to the show’s website.
