Ronnie Wood’s Radio Show Comes to the U.S.
Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood is invading American airwaves. The musical legend has finally brought his one-hour radio show, ‘The Ronnie Wood Show,’ which is based in the U.K., to our fine shores.
The show hit American airwaves in New York City on Sunday, Jan. 29, according to RTT. The program aired on Q104.3/WAXQ-FM in Manhattan. The show routinely features Wood playing a mix of current and classic tunes, and sharing stories about the artists he has had the honor and privilege of encountering and experiencing during his long, illustrious and storied career, such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and others. Wood often extends invites to friends and fellow musicians to sit in with him and to go on air.
In a statement, Wood expressed extreme delight about finally landing in America with his radio show. It read as follows:
"I'm so excited to have my own radio show in America. I love going down the archives every week playing some of my favorite music of all time, while reminiscing and taking a trip down memory lane. It's more than a music show, it's an education, so sit back and enjoy the ride!"
In other recent Rolling Stones news, the band recently issued the second of their online archive concert series albums, this one featuring Wood and his bandmates performing in support of 1981's 'Tattoo You' album.
