About your host
Lorenzo Mameli traces his love of rock and roll music back to the day in his boyhood when his father brought home a copy of the Meet The Beatles album. His love of radio began soon thereafter with the hours he spent listening to legendary New York Top-40 station WABC-AM on a transistor radio. His career in the music industry included stints in retail, promotions and artist management. He has been the host of The Rocker on Maker Park Radio since October 2019. His commitment to playing a diverse hodgepodge of generation spanning rock music while promoting has attracted a devoted (and growing) listenership from across the country and around the world.
He has recently embarked on a career in voice work. His latest credit as a voice actor is in Anthony Welch’s original dramatic series, Street Smart. He can be heard as the voice of a debt collector at the very beginning of the pilot episode. (He also is credited as script consultant.) This episode was named the winner of the Best Pilot award at the 2021 NYC Web Fest, and can be viewed by clicking on this link: Street Smart (Pilot) – FOOTPRINT
About THE ROCKER
The name of the show comes from the 1973 song by Thin Lizzy, which appears on their 1973 album, “Vagabonds of the Western World.” Philip Lynott, the late and legendary leader of the band, is one of Lorenzo’s rock and roll heroes, and every show opens with his daughter Nancy delivering the show intro over the intro from the song itself. It’s a small tribute to a man worthy of a much larger one. Phil’s music ranged from hard rock to bluesy boogie to sweet ballads, all interspersed with his lyrical poetry and deep pride for his Celtic heritage. He was a true renaissance man. He was THE ROCKER.
