Fridays, 4-6 pm : “Geezer Rock” is a weekly radio program that plays new music by geezers who rock. On “Geezer Rock,” it’s the musicians who are the “oldies,” not the songs! Yep, we play all of your favorite “touch of gray” rock stars from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s who are still hitting the stages and putting out new albums of new rockin’ tunes. We’re talking about Joan Jett, Foghat, Randy Bachman, Neil Young, Robin Trower, Patti Smith, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Pat Benatar, Robert Plant, Jeff Beck, the Bangles, the New Riders, and many, many more who have not given up their guitars! Hey, you know they’ve gotta be good; they’ve had 30 or so years to practice.
Fridays, 4–6 p.m. on WGDR (91.1 FM) and WGDH (91.7 FM) in central Vermont or online worldwide at www.wgdr.org (online archive of past shows available). Brought to you by your host and selector, Jeff Lindholm.

This week’s Featured Geezer, Johnny Marr, has just released Playland, only his second
solo album. Marr’s been working with a wide variety of collaborators since leaving the
Smiths, his major claim to fame, in the late ’80s. Here’s your chance to check out a
variety of cuts from his album, songs that deliver a strong blend of Smiths-ian angst and
power pop bounce.
Geezer Rock – Oct. 31, 2014 Wrong Right, with special guest harmonicist Charlie Musselwhite. Plus two all-new bands of geezers with first albums out now: the punkish Satisfactors from New Jersey and the Skynyrd-ish Dark Horse Flyer from Florida. And more new music by geezers who rock!
