Emotional rescue

“The Ronnie Wood Show” is just a taping of a radio program, but the season premiere will still feel like an elegant affair for Beatles fans as Paul McCartney and Wood, the Rolling Stones guitarist with the rooster hairdo, spin their favorite oldies and swap backstage tales. Future guest DJs include Alice Cooper, Steve Cropper and Slash.
