Chuck Berry - Airs March 29th

Hail! Hail! The King of Rock 'n' Rollfrom Tres Hombres Productions
This hour-long music-intensive radio special celebrates the unforgettable music of Chuck Berry. Berry plays his biggest hits backed by Keith Richards and his all-star band, with guests Eric Clapton, Linda Rondstadt, Etta James, and Julian Lennon in one of the most highly regarded concert documentaries of all-time. Interview subjects include John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Bo Diddley, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry, himself. This amazing gathering of rock greats honored Berry on his 60th birthday at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis in 1986, and was captured by director Taylor Hackford for his film, Chuck Berry: Hail, Hail Rock 'n' Roll. Hackford hosts this hour of live music, rehearsal sessions, and insider interviews from both the original film and the bonus materials unearthed for the multi-disc reissue.
