July 15: Thor Summoned to Court’s In Session

July 6, 2021 // News

Apparently rock legend Thor is unable to stay out of court — WRCT’s Court’s In Session that is! Eric Jackson Lurie filed this report about Thor’s upcoming appearance:

On Thursday, July 15, 2021, I am going to have heavy metal legend, Thor, the Godfather of Muscle Rock on WRCT’s Court’s in Session. Thor has a new album, Alliance, coming out on July 16, that includes rock and metal stars making guest appearances on nearly every track: from Chris Holmes of W.A.S.P.; to Ross the Boss of Manowar; to Al Harlow of Prism.

This will be Thor’s 39th album!

In addition, I will be playing the RADIO WORLD PREMIER of Thor’s new single on the show!

I’m pretty excited. Thor has a big fan base here in Pittsburgh and sold out his last and only show here. He’s a great guy and I’ve been a fan of his music since I was 15 – which was a long time ago! I’ve heard the entire album and its amongst the best he’s ever done.

So catch all the excitement Thursday, July 15th starting at 8:00 p.m. on 88.3 FM, Pittsburgh, or streaming from this very website.

Friday, May 21 at 4:00 p.m., WRCT is hosting a listening party for Joey Pecoraro’s brand new release “Old Time Radio“–on the very day it goes on sale world-wide! WRCT’s DJ Firefly describes the record as “jazzy downtempo with an old-timey radio feel.” Another reviewer described it as “a warm musical embrace with lush instrumentation and hazy lo-fi hues.”
