Spanning the decades and sprawling all over the musical map, we bring you our second celebration of Christmas music--and we debate whether Frank Zappa's "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" counts as Christmas music. Thank you all for another great year, and we can't wait to bring you Season 3 in 2019!
Chilly! The frost settles over a scary forest, where Witches dwell and magic abides...Eagles cry tales of the Witchy Woman...Donovan warns us about the season...there's a brief Panic at the Disco when the Queens of the Stone Age arrive, torches in hand. But never fear! Fleetwood Mac knows a good witch who'll come to our rescue. We know some Elizabeth Montgomerys and some Agnes Mooreheads, and *we* turned out just fine!
Saving the best for last? Our trilogy of Glam completes. A personality crisis in the mud, gets all crazee. A Killer Queen is The Passenger in Gary Numan's car, and T. Rex reminds us to take time out of our busy lives to Get It On and Bang a Gong. Enjoy!
It was Saturday Night...I was going to Rock & Roll All Nite, and Then She Kissed Me. She was a Sweet Fox on the Run, but then the man in the back said, "Everyone attack!" We continue walking through the many bands who adopted Glam, for a while or for keeps.
No glossing over the glitz as we go over the top! Walk with us through a blowout blitz of 1970s rock. We guarantee electric boobs, a mohair suit, and lyrics spoken by the poet Lou Reed, oh-ho! B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets...
The True-or-Falsetto question continues! When she taught Frank Ifield how to yodel, was Slim Whitman there too? A-Ha wants to know, "Can you take me on?", and The Bee Gees reach for the helium highs as Tragedy unfolds. Oh, what a night! We walk through the Valli of Frankie and come out the other side to find some Beach Boys bumming around.
After a summer break for fun on the beach, we continue look back at 50 years ago, the music, the culture and the times. TV, Movies, Animation, and more--and what a very, very interesting time for Rock & Roll!
Summer's here, and the time is right! Do you live for the sun or prefer grazin' in the grass? Sand, sun, surf, and more as we enjoy some of our favorite summertime music. Even Bananarama's Cruel Summer doesn't sound so bad after all, does it?
You got it: Every Little Thing is Like a Rolling Stone with this special super-group, and after Tom Petty taught us how to fly, we handled with care to the End of the Line. Join us in part 2 of this tribute to the amazing trans-Atlantic epic that was The Traveling Wilburys. Enjoy!
Look! Up in the sky! Is it The Byrds?Jefferson Airplane? No! It's...SUPER-GROUP! This special show about The Traveling Wilburys shines a spotlight on Florida native Tom Petty. We get superstars from both sides of The Big Pond collaborating on some amazing music, and we talk about their solo work as well. Come along for the fun!
You'll be thunderstruck by this walk through great bands that changed their front man. When the Small Faces got smaller--so small they took the 'Small' out of their name--they still went on to do big things. When the front man is the fifth wheel, maybe a chance is just the thing to grease the Axl and get things rolling again.
So, where's the bathroom again? Whoa, whoa, whoa--it's my WHAT? It's hard to steer the walrus with those electric boobs in the way. We look at the fun and occasionally hilarious songs of rock and roll that many people don't quite understand. Join us and see if you agree.
Two mischevious Leprechauns have hijacked the show! Celebrate Irish rockers with O'Limey & O'Yank. Corrs (but not Blimey), a little Thin on the Lizzy side, and U2 can see that Cranberries are good for you. Enjoy! Recorded in the great outdoors of sunny Florida, USA.
After a Valentine's Day interlude, we return to our exploration of cover songs: does the artist stay faithful, or take the song and make it new? Phil Collins faces off against The Mindbenders over A Groovy Kind of Love, the Genesis of the Land of Confusion leaves us Disturbed, and we bring you a collision of decades in a surprise mash-up. Enjoy!
Love is in the air, and romance deserves its due. From the sweet Demis Roussos to the sour grapes of "Love Hurts", we give you a wide variety of songs about love. Get on the Love Train with the O'Jays and enjoy!
We dive into that murky world of "Should it sound like the original, or be something new?" and walk you through a lot of different songs that are all good in their own way. Well, except the occasional awkward one. Nancy Sinatra's boots walk all over Megadeth on their way to the door, and we give into The Temptations of Rod Stewart. The Beatles get pressed through an Aerosmith filter, but it all Comes Together in the end. Enjoy!
