The sixties didn’t end on 31 December 1968, quite on the contrary: the last few years of the 60s saw the emergence of sounds that faded into the seventies, setting new patterns for the years to come.
The music became heavier, more complex and experimental – drawing on unexpected sources such as avant-garde and classical. Simultaneously, more space was allowed for truly idiosyncratic projects, ranging from the intimate (Ronnie Lane’s Slim Chance) to the extravagant (Jon Lord’s ‘Gemini Suite’).
This metamorphosis of pop into rock also triggered many established acts to reinvent themselves – think The Rolling Stones.
ROCK ON! features psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late sixties and the early seventies.
Broadcast on Wednesdays, ROCK ON! is presented in turns by Dan and Ed, showcasing their particular tastes.
