Nine Below Zero @ The Captain Stax Show

The idea to leave the helm of my radio ship to my favorite bands is really fun! I had the pleasure of seeing Nine Below Zero live several times here in Italy and their 1st concert at the legendary “Odissea 2001” club in 1981 is in my all-time top ten. In addition to the tracks selected by Dennis, Mark, Mickey and Ben, I added a few from their own discography: 2 Mod classics from the new, great, “13 Shades of Blue” and 2 more from recent LPs like “Chilled” and “Duo (Dennis & Mark) “. Dear NBZ, big thanks for the time You have dedicated to me and Mod Radio UK, have a great UK Tour and see you soon!
