The Rock Hour

WITH STEVE MELI Tuesday & Thursday 20:00 – 21:00

The Rock Hour is one of the best things that could have ever happened to Steve in his broadcasting career!

The Rock Hour is a specialized show on all that's happening in the world of modern rock, indie and alternative and sometimes he also throws an odd curveball to spice things up a bit.

An array of local credible artists have been interviewed on this show, from the likes of "Fastidju", to "No Snow/No Alps", "Cryptic Street" and "Fuzzhoneys" have all been here to keep us up to date with all that's new on the local scene. In a nutshell, the Rock Hour is directed to all those who love to discover new music from established A-Class alternative rock / indie acts such as Radiohead, Queens Of The Stone Age, The National, Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend, Blur, Tame Impala, The Strokes. are These are just a few mainstays on the Rock Hour playlists. It veers away as much as possible from the most mainstream rock acts of today (do not expect Nickelback :p) The Rock Hour also serves for breaking a lot of up and coming artists like Wolf Alice, Courtney Barnett, Royal Blood, Hinds, Alabama Shakes etc. These artists have all been given first spins on the Rock Hour and are now set to dominate! All of this is concocted with some lovely alternative classics from the 90s, the 00s and the early 10s. Steve is also interested in keeping you up to date with all that's happening on the festivals' scene, award ceremonies, album anniversaries and all that's going on with the alternative scene in general. It’ll be an hour of your life you won’t be disappointed!
