Show Description

The Rock Block is a free, weekly, two-hour rock show presented by Ian Davies.

The show, launched on 1st February 2022, features rock music in most forms – classic rock, prog rock, punk rock, glam rock and the special category ‘rock which may not even be rock’.

It is a fast-paced show, concentrating on the music, with the right level of vocal links to provide personality.

 

The Rock Block is totally generic:

  • No references to what’s in the news
  • No references to the weather or seasons
  • No references to the time of day or days of the week
  • No mentions of ‘new releases’ or ‘current charts’ – making the Rock Block timeless
  • No sponsorship
  • Suitable for broadcast at any time day or night on any English-speaking station licensed to play music – FM, DAB and/or online
  • Can be played in any order (e.g. Show 3 first, then Show 2 for example or played in chronological order of release)

 

The Rock Block is supplied as 4 x 29 mins files – 58 mins per hour, allowing time for ads, news or promos.

Please note: For stations who don’t run ads, sweepers, etc during shows, I have now added a 1 x 120 mins file option, with the last track suitable for fading early for station branding, promo, etc.

Each show is released on a Tuesday morning (UK time)
