Revolution Rock – Round Up!

Revolution Rock Swag - Kerrang! Radio

Revolution Rock Swag - Kerrang! Radio

We had a blast working on Revolution Rock with Kerrang! Radio. Music has such a unique way of bringing people together and creating positive change. We think that this shone through in this campaign which spotlighted some of the amazing people and organizations that work tirelessly to give people opportunities through music, such as The Warren Youth Project in Hull and Rhythmix.

Revolution Rock was endorsed by some fantastic people and we would like to thank Frank Turner, Tom Morello, Andrew WK, Mike Shinoda, Jonathan David, Loz Guest, Marshall Records and many more.

Part of the campaign was an instrument amnesty encouraging listeners to donate unwanted instruments. We weren’t sure how this would go but after a backline donated by Marshall, a drum kit, Peavy amp, 2 violins, mics, stands, a mixer, leads and 11 guitars later it was clear that people certainly engaged!

There would have been many more donations had we been able to collect them all! We would like to thank all who donated and we will ensure these instruments will go to people who really need them’

‘Revolution Rock was a great success for the radio station delivering some very powerful and engaging content. The core values of the JSF really shone through and clearly had an impact on our audience, who were very keen to find out more about the great work that goes on at the charity. Meanwhile, the response to the instrument amnesty was impressive, with listeners and global brands such as Marshall all stepping up to donate kit to a very worthy cause. We here at Kerrang! Radio fully support the ethos of the JSF, the important service that they provide and plan to maintain strong ties with the charity’Loz Guest, Kerrang! Radio
