Wednesday 8:30pm: RadioMax Special – ELO – Zoom Tour Live 2001

Zoom Tour Live was a one-off concert performed by the Electric Light Orchestra recorded originally for television, later released as a film.

After the release of the 2001 album Zoom, Jeff Lynne announced a North American tour, their first live set of concerts in 15 years. A promotional PBS show was recorded over two consecutive nights at CBS Television City in Los Angeles.

ELO’s management abruptly cancelled the tour (due to slow ticket sales) and this footage was released on VHS and DVD by Image Entertainment. The DVD earned Platinum status in Australia.

Jeff Lynne and Richard Tandy were the only band members returning from the original incarnation of ELO.

Feature LP: Electric Light Orchestra – A New World Record (1976) 9:50pm ET

ELO-NWRA New World Record is the sixth studio album by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), released in 1976.   The album included the hit singles “Telephone Line”, which became the band’s first gold US single, “Livin’ Thing”, and “Do Ya” (US); and “Rockaria!” (UK). “Do Ya” was an ELO updating of The Move’s late 1972 final US single on United Artists Records. The focus is more on shorter pop songs, a trend which would continue throughout the rest of ELO’s future albums. In 1977, many of the album’s songs were featured on the “Joyride” soundtrack. In 2006, the album was remastered and released with bonus tracks on Sony’s Epic/Legacy imprint. “Surrender” was also issued as a promotional single and an iTunes download single, which entered the top 100 download chart. – Wikipedia

Artist Countdown: Electric Light Orchestra Top 40 Hits 6pm ET

ELO-LogoElectric Light Orchestra (ELO) are a British rock group from Birmingham, England, who released eleven studio albums between 1971 and 1986 and another album in 2001. ELO was formed to accommodate Roy Wood’s and Jeff Lynne’s desire to create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones. After Wood’s departure following the band’s debut record, Lynne wrote and arranged all of the group’s original compositions and produced every album.

Despite early singles success in the United Kingdom, the band was initially more successful in the United States, billed as “The English guys with the big fiddles”. They gained a cult following despite lukewarm reviews back in their native United Kingdom. By the mid-1970s, they had become one of the biggest-selling acts in music. From 1972 to 1986, ELO accumulated 27 Top-40 hit singles in both the UK and the US, with 20 Top 20 UK singles and 15 Top-20 US singles (as charted by Billboard magazine). The band also holds the record for having the most Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hits, 20, of any group in US chart history without ever having a number one single.

ELO collected 19 CRIA, 21 RIAA and 38 BPI awards, and sold over 50 million records worldwide during the group’s original 13 year period of active recording and touring. – Wikipedia
