Friday nights have always been rock nights.
Who can forget the late, great, gravelly-voiced radio DJ Tommy Vance who kept it rock solid at the end of the week with the loud, the raw and the raucous? Vintage TV is proud to uphold this fine broadcasting tradition with our own take on The Friday Night Rock Show. If it’s hard or heavy, soft or steady it’s in – and we’re delighted to be producing this series with our own rock legend at the helm, putting his seasoned spin on proceedings.
“This is a show I have wanted to do for years, there’s nothing like it on TV, and I am delighted to have been given the chance” Nicky Horne, The Friday Night Rock Show host
Having presented shows on all major commercial radio stations throughout his illustrious career, as well as being the voice of the Classic Rock Magazine show since 2013, veteran broadcaster Nicky Horne is clearly the man for the job. Viewers can expect exclusive performances from heritage rock bands as well as, very importantly, a shop window to new, young rock bands who are taking classic rock music to the next generation and beyond. Already, Joe Bonamassa and Graham Nash are set to record for The Friday Night Rock Show in March.
Nicky enthused: “Friday nights have always been special for rock fans. The Friday night rock shows of Alan Freeman and Tommy Vance on Capital Radio and Radio One were for me, and millions of others, the highlight of the week. Both „Fluff‟ and Tommy were friends of mine and I am thrilled and honoured to be able to take their legacy into a new era, and a new dimension, with this show on Vintage TV. “This is a show I have wanted to do for years, there‟s nothing like it on TV, and I am delighted to have been given the chance to do it by David Pick and the great, dynamic team at Vintage TV.”
“One of our aims at Vintage TV is to bring music fans closer to the artists they love, and this will be yet another opportunity for that to happen.” David Pick, Founder and CEO of Vintage TV
Founder and CEO of Vintage TV, David Pick added: “It‟s been fabulous to work with Nicky on some of our other series, and it was an easy, natural step to develop his brilliant idea into a TV show. The Friday Night Rock Show deserves a new life on our channel, where it fits with our objectives perfectly. One of our aims at Vintage TV is to bring music fans closer to the artists they love, and this will be yet another opportunity for that to happen”. The Friday Night Rock Show will begin production next month, and is expected to air in the Spring of 2016.
