Hastings Rock Radio 2017 disappointing announcement


Hastings Rock… This causes us great sadness, but unfortunately due to a number of issues, there will be no Hastings Rock broadcast this year. We’re very sorry for any disappointment this may cause, it was an extremely difficult decision to make and we too will be feeling the emptiness this May. We fully intend to return next year, our 25th anniversary, and want to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support. Until then, “this is rock and roll radio, stay tuned for more rock and roll…….”

Now thats what I call music documentary – New York Dolls film hosted by Archie Lauchlan.


The Palace, Seafront, Hastings –  Wednesday 15th March 2017 8.00pm

Hosted by Archie Lauchlan (Re: A Pier director/University of Brighton lecturer) NTWICAMD is a season of the best music docs [ever!] screening free at The Palace in Hastings every Wednesday evening.
First up, NEW YORK DOLL: the Dolls’ bassist Arthur ‘Killer’ Kane went from the depraved madness of a band who, more than any other, inspired Punk Rock in the 70s, to become a door-to-door Mormon bible salesman. Excellent and very moving film.
