Our regular listeners should be getting used to our Riot Radio series. Every other episode we present to you a true alternative to regular radio. You know, those stations that play the same 30 songs over and over and over again? You won’t find that here at Riot Radio!
Every Riot Radio brings you a dozen or so songs that most likely you have either never heard on terrestrial radio or at least not in the last 2 or 3 decades.
Riot Radio Vol. 6 is a little different. Wallygator jumps into the DJ seat and goes Riot Radio Unplugged. He figured it was best to do this on his own knowing full well that his co-host would want nothing to do with such a theme.
Riot Radio Vol. 6 – Unplugged
Unplugged acoustic music is nothing new, but the concept really came to light when MTV launched its MTV Unplugged series in November of 1989. Many genres of music embraced the concept and huge Unplugged albums became all the rage. Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Nirvana, Alice In Chains and Tesla all released very successful acoustical albums.
This episode is loaded up with some familiar artists and some maybe not so familiar. All of them stripping down their tunes to the are bones acoustic and unplugged.
Alas, the Meister gets wind of what’s happening and calls in a very special request not wanting to be left out of this unplugged episode!
