Elton's 100th ''Rocket Hour''

Written by Chief Editor.

Earlier today, Elton wrote in Instagram that it's hard to believe that his Rocket Hour ''hits 100 shows today.''

He adds: ''Thank you Beats 1, for letting me share my passion for new music each and every week.''

The programme began in July 2015, and right from the start, Elton was overwhelmed by the positive response.

A source close to the performer said at the time: ''He was very nervous about how the show would be received, as hosting a radio show is something that is very new to him. But what a lot of people don’t realise is that he always has an ear to the ground — he has an extensive knowledge of new music and has always been about championing new artists.''
 
Elton himself commented: ''Music is all about learning, music is all about joy. Everybody at a particular moment in their life has a song that they’ll always remember.''
