Woke up this morning, with the Megaupload blues

Yea, I woke up this morning, with the Megaupload blues

What am I gonna do Lord, 'bout my radio internet show

I said what am I gonna do Lord, 'bout my radio internet show

The Vinyl Shelf Presents ROCK'S HARDEST PARTYERS

Broadcast as part of Rolling Stone Magazine's 'Continuous History Of Rock & Roll' on FM radio in late 1983, this episode spotlights "ROCK'S HARDEST PARTYERS" which features (to no surprise) KEITH MOON (rare interviews!), JIM MORRISON and OZZY OSBOURNE along with party songs and anthems from THE WHO, THE DOORS, ZZ TOP (a very brief Dusty Hill interview too), SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY, BEACH BOYS, GLENN FREY and AXE.

ALSO, JOAN JETT is interviewed about being able to handle partying on the road and many classic commercials (Atari, Agree, Bubble Yum, etc.) make this an entertaining listen from a time long ago.
