Hey Rock N Roll

Hey Rock ’n’ Roll is not just a bio but more a collection of interesting and humorous true stories as it traverses the various musical eras. You’ll read about the venues, the movers and shakers and marvel at Rick’s incredible collection of clippings and memorabilia lovingly kept from day one. This is the first time Newcastle (and other nearby towns) have ever been depicted during the Swinging 60s. This book will serve as an excellent snapshot of social history of that ‘way-out and groovy’ era. Rick Pointon enjoyed his years at 2NURFM so much he has arranged for the station he loves to benefit from the sale of his new book Hey Rock ‘N’ Roll. Rick is donating $10 from the sale of the $60 book to 2NURFM. You’ll need to pay cash and collect your copy from 2NURFM.
