• Updates from the Stones’ 2002-2003 world
• “Stones Unearthed” – At least
one rare track you can’t find and won’t hear anywhere
• “This Date In Stones History” --
Forty years of music, drug busts, and paternity suits to draw
• Interviews – Guests may include the Stones
themselves or some of their famous cohorts.
• Stones Covers – Anyone from Tom Jones
to the Ramones. Otis to Devo. Taking on the Stones.
• Personal and behind-the-scenes anecdotes about
the Stones and the making of their music.
• And much, much more. Every song that’s
played will be featured for a purpose. A story attached to it,
told irreverently by someone who was an eyewitness – and
earwitness – for half of the Stones’ existence.
Bill German has traveled with the Rolling Stones, interviewed
them countless times, stayed at their houses, witnessed their
recording sessions and nightclub gigs, and has even written
a book with one of them.
