Sean Rowley presents "Soft Rock Disco" for Ministry of Sound Radio
Regular visitors to this site might feel that Sean Rowley's new show for Ministry of Sound Radio has a familiar ring to it. It's called Soft Rock Disco and it "sails a course through the heart of the 70s and 80s...featuring classic tunes which have been remixed and re-edited for the now generation." Its launch last Sunday follows our interviews in September with Bill Brewster in Mixmag and Lauren Laverne on BBC6Music - and indeed the airing of Graeme Fisher presents "AOR Disco" for Ministry of Sound Radio last December - so Rowley's venture reveals a keen eye for a trend.
However he was one of the pioneers of the AOR revival and his compilations Guilty Pleasures and Guilty Pleasures Rides Again - as well as his long-running club nights - feature many of the best soft rock/easy listening standards. His new show also includes remixes by some of our favourite producers, such as Red Ken (whose exclusive and classic edit for us of Steve Perry's "She's Mine" gets a name check on the programme), Cousin Cole, Le Sale and the Seahawks. You can hear the next installment of Soft Rock Disco this Sunday.
