Studies done by the Hard Rock Institute of Lifestyle Research* show that a sizable dosage of good quality music 30 minutes each day (say, the sort of thing you’d find on ROCKFM) improves a person’s outlook significantly. Conversely, you will be a lot less homicidal if you aren’t subjected to Justin Bieber in the tender, dark hours.
For that extra, life-affirming prescription, the Jaded Ink Show on ROCKFM on Thursday nights between 8PM and 10PM seems like a solid choice.
That’s Jaded Ink, as in the guys behind the body art lifestyle brand, with parlours in Fourways and Centurion, and rumours of a third Gauteng location before 2013.
In the slot there’s no news, no weather, no sports and no religious or political reports. It’s a show about lifestyles of tattooed people, with a fair chunk of good old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll.
The show, hosted by Jaded Ink’s Muz, broadcasts on Northgate’s diamond in the rough ROCKFM station on the 91.9FM frequency. Say the guys, “The range of rock music varies from soft rock to classic hard rock with very limited exposure to metal music.”
“You will experience music from The Beatles to Pink Floyd, from Dave Mathews Band to Counting Crows**, from Prime Circle to David Van Vuuren.”
There’s no reason to traumatise your ears, senses or morality any further. When you turn on the radio, turn it to ROCKFM, and tune in to The Jaded In Show on Thursday nights from 8PM to 10PM.

*I may possibly have made that up.
**We’ll discuss what dark treasures could possibly lie in the vast spectrum between DMB and Counting Crows at another time.
In the vacuum between dark and light, Siouxsie Sioux and Emmylou Harris, Amelie and Travis Bickle, Huntress Thompson is an idiot lost, and reporting from the field. If you’re after irrational, impassioned rants about cupcakes and Johnny Cash (and you probably aren’t), she’s grumpy, but she’s your girl.
