An Acoustic Stor Christmas & More...

t's hard to believe another year has come and (just about) gone, but the holidays are here.  That means "An Acoustic Storm Christmas" will arrive the weekend of 12/20-21.
Acoustic-rock for the season is lined up from John Lennon, Bob Dylan, the Who, Rod Stewart, Jackson Browne, Sting, Stevie Nicks, Jeff Beck, and many more, with a special double-bill of Jethro Tull and ELP in the Eye of The Storm.

December's other artists in the Eye include Neil Young, David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen.

Just in time for holiday gift-giving, we've expanded the line of Storm Gear, and added some fun items.  In the accessories section, you'll even find Acoustic Storm-inscribed golf balls! Get more info below about Storm Gear by clicking here.

Have a safe & happy holiday season, and thanks for listening to The Acoustic Storm.

With Thanksgiving coming up, I'd like to express my gratitude for your support of The Acoustic Storm!

Acoustic Storm Celebrates 16 Years

The Acoustic Storm will celebrate its 16th anniversary this month.  On October 25, 1998 the radio show hit the airwaves for the first time on 100.7 KSLX in Phoenix, Arizona. Thanks for listening all these years, and keeping The Storm going strong!

We'll commemorate that milestone with theme sets in the second half of each hour of the 10/19-20 Acoustic Storm, with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers in The Eye. Another theme show will roll your way 10/26-27, as we'll have some fun and get a bit spooky with the Halloween Acoustic Storm, featuring the Doors in the Eye of The Storm.

John Lennon would have been 74 on October 9, so we'll remember John in words and music, 10/4-10/5. The following weekend, Led Zeppelin will get the spotlight in the Eye of The Storm.

Cooler weather has arrived, so check out The Acoustic Storm's fall collection of long-sleeve t-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts.  Click here for Storm Gear.

The line-up for October Eye of The Storm artists:

10/4-5: JOHN LENNON 
10/11-12:  LED ZEPPELIN               
10/18-19: TOM PETTY (Acoustic Storm 16th Anniversary show)
10/25-26: DOORS (Halloween Storm)
