PROG & ROLL Radio show (15/9/2013) Top-5 & full playlist....

Good morning all! :)
   Last night we had one more Prog & Roll radio show as usual.
This time we thought of splitting the 2-hours show into 4 half hour parts, and on each part we would play a different music style.
So, on the first half hour we played some not so famous bands from England and Germany from the 70's, with the music style being mainly Krautrock and Heavy Rock. On the second part we played mostly  Hard & Heavy bands, on the third part again some not so famous bands from different countries, and on the fourth and last part, the style was more melodic and mellow with a Folk finale.
The main idea was to present some bands which are unknown, and we had never played before in our shows, because as we often like to say, radio is not only for enjoyment but it is also a good way of learning new bands songs etc.
  We had a good crowd last night listening and participating, and as it seemed the show and the music were very pleasant. We had 2 very nice hours, and everybody seemed happy & satisfied.
Well, that's the point, right?
 And as usual, we encouraged the listeners (old & new) to grade the songs we are playing, and once more they did. So, according to their grades here's last night's Top-5 songs:

1. Metallica: One
2. Tool: Sober
3. Loreena Mc Kennitt: All Souls Night
4. Mystery: Time Goes by
5. Dead Heroes Club: A Secret Never to be Told

I have to admit that the average points the Irish band 'Dead Heroes Club' achieved to gather were very surprising, but I'm guessing that some of our listeners from Ireland put some really high points in order to boost them, because... well, it's an Irish band! hehehe
  The first 3 songs in the Top-5 achieved to gather the minimum average of 8.5 points which is required in order to be able to participate in the final stage for "The Song of the Month". We have got 12 great songs in our list so far, and one more show before the contest. So I'm guessing in the end there will be about 15 songs participating in the contest for the title of the 'Song of the Month". This will be a really tough one I think!
  As for the whole playlist, you can see it here:

Part 1: AUDIENCE: Belladonna Moonshine / GRAVY TRAIN: The New One / JANE: Air / LUCIFER’S FRIEND: Ride the Sky / TWENTY SIX & THEN: At my Home.
Part 2: LED ZEPPELIN: Over the Hills & far Away / THE TEA PARTY: The River / RIVERSIDE: Artificial Smile / TOOL: Sober / METALLICA: One.
