Todd Rundgren guest programs Rage

I'm looking forward, in hope, to Saturday's Rage programmed by Todd Rundgren. The few snippets of information suggest some great bands and songs. Let's hope he uncovers some rarely played gems from the vault.

"The talented Todd Rundgren is bringing his eclectic music knowledge into your living room as he guest programs Rage.

A pioneer in the music industry, Todd Rundgren is hard to describe in just one word. He’s a singer/songwriter, a pop star, a prog-rock and electronic music innovator, an award-winning producer and a brilliant music video maker, we could go on.

After leaving his garage rock band Nuzz in 1969, Rundgren had huge Top 40 success upon the release of his first solo album, Something/Anything?. The singles “I Saw The Light”, “Hello It’s Me” from the LP as well as the later “Bang The Drum All Day” became instant classics for the talented writer.

Having conquered the charts, his next few projects saw the Philadelphia musician explore the new genre of electronic music in his 1973 LP A Wizard, A True Star and making prog-rock history with his band Utopia.

In his sixty-year career, he’s produced albums for Meat Loaf, Cheap Trick, Grand Funk Railroad among others. He’s been on the forefront of technology both in music and computer software releasing the first ever interactive CD. Plus, he’s been a pioneer in music videos with 1983’s “Time Heals” premiering as one of the first videos on the then brand new MTV music show. So, it’s no surprise that he’s lined up a great weekend of viewing for you.

See Todd Rundgren on Rage Saturday November 3 from 10am and again at 12:10am on ABC TV."
