Music to make your Dad’s day

Music to make your Dad’s day

WSFM’s Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones gives the scoop on his top picks for music-loving dads this Father’s Day.

Forget socks and jocks (trust me, he’s already got plenty), if you want to make this a Father’s Day to remember you need to give the man music. And if you want to make a strong case for why you should be henceforth known as ‘The Favourite Child’ then you’ll want to be getting him some quality pieces of vinyl.

– AC/DC, High Voltage
This was my first Acca Dacca album

– Cat Stevens, Tea For The Tillerman
For when I’m feeling mellow. I love Longer Boats, the ubiquitous Father and Son, Sad Lisa, Where Do The Children Play, Hard Headed Woman and the title track of course!

– Prince, Purple Rain
I love the title track of this, that guitar running through the chorus pedal gives me chills

–  Never Mind the Bollocks here’s the sex pistols.
Takes me back to art school, I wore this record thin. Pretty Vacant became my anthem.

– Metallica Masters of puppets.
“Obey your Master! Master!” Get me this for Father’s Day.

– Led Zeppelin, IV
No explanation needed really.

– Australian Crawl, Greatest Hits
Takes me back to days spent driving in my mate Turbo’s SSS Stanza listening to this.

– The Beatles, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
I really “discovered” The Beatles when I started in radio in 1990. I love Day in the Life.

Listen to Jonesy & Amanda in the morning, with Brendan Jones and Amanda Keller, 5.30am-9am weekdays on WS FM101.7.
