Absolute Radio's first scripted comedy series.

Narrated by broadcaster Shaun Keaveny, each story is based on an apocryphal Rock n'Roll legend and will be split across the week into 5-minute episodes.

Expect a good amount of high drama and out-loud laughter as Shaun recounts the very silly and utterly absurd fictional dramatisations of Status Quo and the Kangaroo, Trying To Get Blood Out Of A Stone, Stairway to Hell, Taking Libertines, Aporkalypse Sow and The Kiss and the Cow.

This special six-week series has been created, written and produced by Jon Holmes based on his bestselling book Rock Star Babylon. Episodes aired Monday-Thursday, with a podcast omnibus edition released on Friday.
