Be listening for Iowa Public Radio exclusive live recordings of one of the original British Invasion bands, The Zombies, from their very well-received show last September at the Ames City Auditorium. The performance was a highlight of last year's Maximum Ames Music Festival. The Zombies, including founding members Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, are known for such classic hits as "She's Not There" and "Time Of The Season." The band runs through all of their hits, plus album tracks old and new, and hits that Argent had apart from The Zombies. Studio One will also feature an interview I did with lead singer Blunstone last fall.
We will bring you sets from the performance over five nights on Studio One, all in the 7:00 hour. The dates will be:
Monday, Feb. 17
Wednesday, Feb. 19
Friday, Feb 21 (includes Colin Blunstone interview)
Monday, Feb. 24
Tuesday, Feb. 25
You can hear the entire concert Saturday, Feb 22 on Backtracks with Bob Dorr.
