This is my radio show. Smartphones were designed to thump your pocket like Michael Anthony's bass guitar. If your Ipad ain't on fire, computer screen isn't screaming for blinding stage lights and thunder crashing drum kits...then why'd you stop? Cuz deep inside you love to Rock!
Tell me your Rock stories. I don't wanna hear about how many concerts you've hit. I want the meat that made it too big to devour. Squeeze your meet and greets beside me and lets fire up the coals on everlasting backstage adventures. email@example.com
I was born to Rock and Radio became my stage. Music history is my reverb. Keeping you pumped up on full volume my maximum destination.
Classic Rock has a family Tree. The birthing ground of bigger than life journeys.
There used to be a time when fans of Rock knew the Artists. Not just by song. Rollingstone, Creem and today's Sam Ashe mailer should bare the face of someone you know.
I'm part of the problem. I was told to say, "Here's another four in a row."
That's gonna change. Rock Jock Talk is about the relationship between the people that make the music and those that listen.
I don't wear my hair long to look pretty. My soul is made of Metal and everything shooting from it are the magnets not strong enough to withstand the energy of the greatest music on the planet.
We're gonna cover a lot of ground. There'll be days the music's gonna sound completely out of character. It doesn't matter! Rock isn't about being in tune. Just ask Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Van Morrison.
My name is Arroe. Rock is about attitude and I've got a big one!
Tom Petty has revamped his set list. Bruce Springsteen has never had one. Today we talk with The Boss about how nervous he gets before every show and how the reaction of the audience controls what song is coming up next.
Sound a little out of control? Make no mistake...playing live with Bruce Springsteen is no different than holding down a real job. Nobody knows what The Boss is doing next. There are no set lists. According to E Street Band member Nels Lofgren...the roar of the crowd influences Bruce to change the first song.
Bruce was recently asked if being on the road with him was like running a marathon.

Foreigner fans can reunite. The battle lines between Mick Jones and Lou Gramm have faded like invisible ink. Who better to help silence the eight year old beer brawl than Billy Joel who announced their return at last week's Songwriters Hall of Fame induction. Backed by the house band, the duo performed the songs ‘Juke Box Hero’ and ‘I Want to Know What Love Is,’ and were joined on the latter by Anthony Morgan’s Inspirational Choir of Harlem. Another songwriting legend, Billy Joel, inducted the duo into the Hall of Fame, joking that Foreigner really were musical heroes, “back when there were jukeboxes.” Jones first broke the news of the event to us in a February interview, where he declared that he was “so proud of what Lou and I achieved in those early years and throughout the time that we were together. I think it’s the first time that we’ve been recognized for our work and our writing, which was really the foundation of what we did together, as much as the performing.” See them perform
The one thing I loved most about being with Pam Stone was how incredibly important it is to be extremely "Real." For two years Anthony and I would sit across from each other rolling our Radio trained eyes while Pam bounced around those speakers like a wild normal person.
She would love John Caparulo! Not because he's a Redneck from Ohio but a total connection to keeping it "Real"
John appears at the Comedy Zone Charlotte this weekend. cltcomedyzone.com
Caparulo, known to many as "Cap," got his first big breaks appearing at the 2003 Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he was offered a sitcom, and on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. He has since appeared on The Tonight Show, was featured on Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Next Generation hosted by Bill Engvall, and was one of the comedians documented on Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Tour. He hosted Mobile Home Disaster on CMT, and played the part of 'Brian' on the short-lived ABC sitcom "Work It."
He also has a comedy special that aired on Comedy Central on December 21, 2008
called John Caparulo: Meet Cap" Cap intermittently hosts "The Mad Cap
Hour" radio show with his wife Jamie Caparulo, and comedian Mark Ellis on
Sirius XM, toadhopnetwork.com, and iTunes. Although he is currently touring
nationally, he also regularly appears on the E! show Chelsea Lately, and voices
the character of 'Headphone Joe' on Disney's "Fish Hooks."
