Rock on Radio 2

Radio 2 has been around almost as long as 'rock' music so rock fans quite rightly think tere should be more rock music on R2. Some great rock anthems get a daily play on the daytime shows but since 1965 there have been 100's of very fine rock albums released which hardly get an airing even once a year on R2.

Many R2 listeners over 45 grew up with these bands and artistes: Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, The Who, Jimmy Hendrix, Rush, Thin Lizzy, King Crimson, AC/DC, but only hear them by getting out their vinyl or re-issue CDs.

R2 does do some very entertaining rock documentaries, see rock artistes listed at, but in the main we rely on these presenters to play the great rock bands every week:
