BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward has issued the following update on the Christmas edition of his "Rock 50" monthly radio show, which airs between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. PST on WPMD, a college radio station at Cerritos College in California:"In my last news post, about the November radio show, I’d said the Christmas show was canceled. That's changed! We're airing the Christmas show on Saturday, December 12. "Our Christmas show rarely plays traditional Christmas songs, and 'Frosty The Snowman' and 'Rudolph', lovable as they may be, will no doubt be appearing continuously on other radio stations. Wishing not to sound 'ba-humbug,' we will be playing the best of the songs that have appeared throughout the year on our show, and that will include 'The Last Baron' by MASTODON, and the jewel of Christmas shows past collection TYPE O NEGATIVE's 'Red Water/Christmas Mourning'. "I'll be playing some of the greatest bands and artists in the world, who in their writing and performance, and sheer brilliance period, have brought hope to millions of people all over. "For those in hard times, I hope our two-hour show will play a part in helping you to sustain and feel more empowered. Music is the most powerful language on earth. "Rock 50", featuring its regular host Mike Stark, is broadcast over the Internet every Saturday. You can listen to the show live online at this location.
