Elton’s 100th Rocket Hour Radio Show Airs This Week

Share

100th Rocket HourThis week, Elton celebrates the 100th episode of his Apple Music Beats 1 Radio show, Elton John’s Rocket Hour.

As he has every week since July 6, 2015, Elton puts together an eclectic mix of, “Music you know, music you don’t know, and music you should know” for the hour-long programme.

In the 1970s and 80s, listeners would only very occasionally be fortunate enough to hear Elton take over a radio DJ booth, usually in London, New York or LA, and play his current favorite records under the moniker “EJ the DJ.”

Now, with his weekly radio show, anyone world-wide with access to iTunes can listen to Elton share his love for music new and old every week on Mondays at 7 pm PST in the US and Tuesdays at 2 pm GMT (and relative times world-wide).

And people with an Apple Music subscription can also listen to every episode, going back to the very first, on demand at Apple Music.

Over the past two years Elton has championed artists like Christine and the Queens, The Weeknd, and Chris Stepleton and spoken about his personal and professional relationships with the likes of Lana Del Ray, Roseanne Cash and the Pet Shop Boys.

As we’ve come to expect from the last 99 shows, Rocket Hour 100 features a diverse selection of music chosen by Elton, with artists from Australia to Mali and spanning a selection of genres.

“It’s a fantastic world we live in, and the music that’s being made all over the world is really tremendous.” – Elton
