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 http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/documentaries/, but in the main we rely on these presenters to play the great rock bands every week:
