The Racket

Feb 3, 2022 6:00 PM β€“ 7:00 PM

Nighttime Rock

With johnny ghost

As every show begins: "Welcome to the Racket with your host, Jonny Ghost!" I'm your weekly purveyor of retro-styled rock 'n' roll, with dedicated throwbacks to the 20th century every 10th episode. Proving the kids still rock like they used to, every Thursday evening 6-7 on HD2; be there or be square.

Shore Leave Pt. 1

Picture this: you’ve been out on the water for weeks and you’ve just stopped off in a lovely little seaside town, you’re wiling away your evening in a diner or a pub or what-have-you, and the jukebox is on full blast. AKA, I promised you surf rock last week and surf rock I will deliver, but mixed in are a couple jazzier tracks that I hope set the tone.
