The Acoustic Storm, an East Valley-based radio program on the air “with the promise of delivering acoustic-based rock and unplugged versions of well-known songs” will celebrate its 15th anniversary Saturday, Oct. 26, from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on 100.7 FM KSLX.
Produced and hosted by Jeff Parets, The Acoustic Storm first aired Oct. 25, 1988 as a local show on KSLX in Phoenix.
Today, the program, hosted out of an East Valley studio, is in global syndication and can be heard in more than 75 radio markets in the U.S., Canada and Australia. The program went into syndication in 2003 under the banner of the Mesa-based Acoustic Storm Radio Network, LLC.
“This show has been a labor of love from the beginning, so to be doing it for 15 years, starting in my adopted hometown of Phoenix, and now presenting it in so many other cities, is truly gratifying,” Parets said.
The program will commemorate its milestone broadcast with a thematic show featuring songs with titles and lyrics related to storms, including live, acoustic versions of Bruce Springsteen’s “Thunder Road,” and Neil Young’s “Like a Hurricane.”
