UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS congratulates JEFF PARETS, the creator, producer and host of THE ACOUSTIC STORM, in commemorating that show’s 10th anniversary on the air. The program will celebrate 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," THE SCORPIONS' "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and JAMES TAYLOR's "Fire and Rain."
THE ACOUSTIC STORM signed on the air SUNDAY morning, OCTOBER 25th, 1998 as a local show in PHOENIX, with the promise of delivering acoustic-based rock and unplugged versions of well-known songs in a concentrated block.
Regarding the 10th anniversary of THE ACOUSTIC STORM, host-creator JEFF PARETS said, "This show has been a labor of love from the beginning, so to be doing it for 10years and to be presenting it in so many cities is truly gratifying. It's amazing to see how many listeners are connecting with this brand of acoustic rock. I'd like to thank everyone that has supported THE ACOUSTIC STORM over the years, most notably all of our terrific affiliates."
