(NOVEMBER 2014) – For the 11th year in a row, Envision Networks® The Chop Shop Guitar Show presents an all new Trans-Siberian Orchestra Holiday Special! This FREE two-hour program is one of radio’s favorite holiday traditions and the perfect supplement for any TSO concert with music and behind the scenes details from the largest seasonal tour in the world!
Host Steve Black was given exclusive access to rehearsals for The Christmas Attic Tour as the band prepared for the 120 shows they will be performing in just 48 days. Throughout the two hour special, Black chats with TSO creator Paul O’Neil as well as all four guitarists: Al Pitrelli, Chris Caffery, Angus Clark and Joel Hoekstra.
During these exclusive interviews, O’Neil and the band’s four guitarists discuss the size and scale of this all-new show, The Christmas Attic storyline for the tour, and what it was like playing a New Year’s Eve show for a crowd of over 2 million last year. This year’s tour will be the first time the band performs the Christmas Attic part of the Christmas trilogy live.
The 11th Annual Trans-Siberian Orchestra Holiday Special is available for download beginning November 19th. Interested stations should contact Valerie Brooks at 216-831-3761 or ValerieB@envisionradio.com for broadcast details.

Both versions are two hours in length and feature weekly interviews as well as the exclusive Chop Shop Hall of Fame feature, where such guests as Ted Nugent, Brian May, Leslie West, and hundreds of others pay tribute to guitar legends Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Angus Young, Slash and more.
