Here is the editorial staff of “La Rocks Radio News”.
Attention – New Year’s Eve is a day where you can watch TV on 3SAT in good conscience but from January 1, 2021 please “La Rocks Radio around the Clock” again okay! Have a good time – thank you.
Rarely has the 24-hour Concert Series on 3SAT made as much sense as it does at the End of this Year: a good two dozen Shows with greats of all musical styles have once again been produced, a small consolation in this concert-reduced time.
Dylan & Co. for early risers
For those who already start polishing the fondue set, checking the champagne stocks and checking the aspirin supplies in the early hours of the last day of the year 2020, “Pop Around The Clock” has put together the finest classic material. This time, the concert program on 3Sat starts at 5:30 a.m., and in the first block, the greats will be in attendance. In addition to Rod Stewart, who sends his greetings from London’s venerable Royal Albert Hall at 5:30 a.m., the program is dominated by a Beatle and his Bobness: “Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band“: Live at the Greek Theatre,” a concert with hand-picked guests such as Joe Walsh and Nils Lofgren, dates from September 2019. The great Bob Dylan is in action twice, alongside “The Other Side Of The Mirror,” the “30th Anniversary Concert Celebration.”
A Prince does the Honors
In the second show block, Elvis Presley shakes his hips. There is a reunion with his legendary “Elvis – `68 Comeback Special” (9.30 a.m.), followed directly by the next shining light of pop history. The wonderful Stevie Nicks shines in “24 Karat Gold” (10.25 a.m.), before Prince euphorizes in a double pack, starting at 11.30 a.m. in “Sign O’ The Times” and from 12.55 p.m. with “Rave Un2 The Year 2000”.
Chaka, you make it
The transition is perfect, of course: from the Prince’s groove to the Khan’s groove: “Chaka Khan: Homecoming” kicks off at 2 p.m. with plenty of drive and soul, and three quarters of an hour later guitar god Eric Clapton picks up his guitar and takes his audience to the Crossroads Guitar Festival.
S&M in the Afternoon
From 4 p.m. onwards, Metallica will be playing the very latest sounds. The second part of their legendary S&M concerts will shine with the eponymous combination “Symphony & Metallica”. Visually quite a bit more opulent, moreover with a political message, it continues at 17.15 clock. “Us & Them” is Roger Waters‘ program based on the classic by his ex-band Pink Floyd.
From pop and politics to Shakira and Co.: The block from 7:15 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. features three grandes dames of pop: Mariah Carey, Shakira and Christina Aguilera. There will also be a musical memorial hour for groove giant Avicii, who passed away in 2018.
Cheers New Year!
And Prince, for the third: “Let’s Go Crazy – The Grammy Salute” is the perfect soundtrack for the start of the new year from 23.45, and from 01.00 it gets a lot darker when shock rock legend Alice Cooper puts on make-up and invites you to the “Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris”. Bombastic then the end of “Pop Around The Clock”, first Muse offer some evidence for their “Simulation Theory” (02.00 o’clock), then from 3.30 o’clock Biffy Clyro let the night of nights rock. Afterwards, Milow (4.15) and Annett Louisan (5.00) gently get their viewers ready for bed with two concerts from the zdf@bauhaus series.
