Top 5 80's Aerosmith Songs - Ep385

This week we dive into a time of great change as we pick our Top 5 80's Aerosmith Songs! To describe the decade of the 80's when it comes to the bad boys from Boston is tough. Perhaps, it's best to lean on the reverse of an old analogy of 'in like a lamb, out like a lion.' Although hugely successful in the early to mid 70's, Aerosmith entered the 80's with a thud. The decade-closing 'Night in the Ruts' did little to gain chart position and resulted in Joe Perry's exit from the group. By...

16 in America - Ep382

It stands to reason that many of us come into our "most rocking" phase of life around the age of 16. That would include our favorite rock stars.

The Greatest Show on Earth - Ep380

Andrew Sgambati joins us this week to discuss his creation of The Greatest Show on Earth and we watch it! In last 50 years, there hasn’t been a more visually exciting band than KISS. Blasting on to the scene in the early 1970’s KISS’ mix of rock, pop and cartoon theatrics made them a household name. By 1977, the people has spoken. KISS was the most popular band in America according to a then recent Gallup Poll. Led Zeppelin had one. The Who had theirs in 1979. Alice Cooper, David...

Conversation with a KISS Meme - Ep373

We return this week with one of the most "inside" KISS-related shows we've ever done as we have a Conversation with a KISS Meme. To explain, in 2010 teenager Rich Cser was basking in the discovery of rock and metal music. For fun, he filmed himself singing and doing air guitar to some of his favorite songs and uploaded the videos to Youtube. Of these videos, his choice of KISS' Ready My Body from 1989's 'Hot in the Shade' album was a strange one. Furthermore, his animated air guitar...
