South African rock supporter and award-winning journalist Gary Cool To Host A Show On Team Rock Radio
Eternal South African rock music supporter, and award-winning journalist, Gary Cool, has spread his wings and landed a time slot on international radio station, Team Rock Radio. Always pushing to bring South African music into the spotlight through cutting edge music journalism, this former Capetonian has always been an advocate for local music, and a wellspring of information on anything and everything in the South African music industry. Team Rock Radio is an international, online radio station. DJing alongside the like of Bruce Dickinson, Chris Jericho, the editor of Metal Hammer magazine, and many others, he will be bringing his own South African flavour to the station. Utilising this platform as a springboard for South African artists, he will be showcasing South African music to the world - from interviews to reviews, opinion pieces to debut playlistings, Gary will be giving the South African music scene the international exposure it has always deserved. “I have been fortunate to do a lot in the South African music scene – from having my open letter to Bruce Springsteen result in him touring the country, to emceeing some of the biggest stages in South Africa, but none of that seems as surreal as having a show on Team Rock Radio. This has been a dream of mine for years, and I look forward to sharing my love of South African music on an international stage; hopefully opening doors for South African artists across the globe. Plus, who wouldn’t be excited about being on the same station as Bruce Dickinson?” says Gary Cool. Even after interviewing the likes of the Foo Fighters, Slash, Bring Me The Horizon (and many, many more), Gary’s focus remains firmly on bolstering the South African music scene, with special attention always being given to unsigned and underdog artists.
