Radio Free Phoenix is virtually the only radio station that has ever played Elton Duck. We have had a copy of this stellar unreleased album since we went on the air in 2004 and now for the first time from the original master tapes,  The Elton Duck Album is available to you!

Radio Free Phoenix presents the Elton Duck Listening Party (to benefit the Condello Scholarship Fund) at Stinkweeds Records in Phoenix on July 13th!

Here is the history on the band:

In the late 70’s, long time Phoenix rock legend, Mike Condello played lead guitar for a new-wave L.A. pop band called ELTON DUCK. They recorded a dozen tracks for Arista Records, but the record has remained unreleased until now. Mike passed away in 1995, but with the release of the Elton Duck CD, his musical legacy is being fulfilled thanks to a recent agreement reached with Sony Music.

While supplies last, anyone who donates a minimum of $20 to The Mike Condello Music Scholarship Fund will receive a copy of this limited edition CD as a thank you gift. This fund benefits college-bound students from Mike’s alma mater, North High School in Phoenix.

Elton Duck’s Mike McFadden and Andy Robinson, will be on hand to sign CD’s at the ELTON DUCK listening party from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 13 at Stinkweeds Record Exchange on Camelback and Central in Phoenix. Radio Free Phoenix will be there for the offical release of the long awaited Elton Duck album along with Andy Olson & Liz Boyle! Please join use for this unique event!

This Saturday (July 7th) at 5pm and and again on Sunday at 3pm (AZ Time), RFP will be premiering “The Paul Gurvitz Show.”  Paul is a British rock star with a deep musical history. He is best known for the band Gun, that had a big hit with “Race With The Devil” in 1968. He was also in “Three Man Army” (from 1971-1974).” and then spent 3 years with Ginger Baker in the band “The Baker Gurvitz Army.”

Paul is a Mesa, AZ resident and will be playing songs from the UK 60’s & 70’s along with his personal stories of these bands. The music is high energy and will showcase many excellent UK groups that never had a big breakthrough in the USA. This is an RFP produced show and exclusive to us!
