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. firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
The late 60's straight into the 1970's were flooded by Storytellers: Crosby Stills and Nash, Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Jackson Brown, The Eagles, John Denver's Rocky Mountain High and some new punk kid from Jersey Bruce Springsteen.
Even Jocks on the Radio got into the art of engagement; Paul Harvey was brilliant with the daily news while Casey Kasum and Dick Clark masterfully kept us glued to the giant metal sticks stuck in the mud somewhere in the fields of way the hell out there.
One of my favorite Casey breaks came while sharing the story of Creedence Clearwater Revival's challenge to generate enough love from music fans dominate Billboard Magazine's number one position. It's not that CCR wasn't capable, there was "always" a chunk of Pop Culture above their brand of sound.
Wait! Get your hands off that computer mouse! No tapping out!
John Fogerty has confirmed that his upcoming album will be centered around classic Creedence Clearwater Revival songs, but the album’s engineer says the result is completely new songs. Kid Rock, Bob Seger, Jennifer Hudson and the Foo Fighters are among the confirmed musicians who contributed to ‘Wrote a Song for Everyone.’
“It’s no nostalgia fest,” Bob Clearmountain tells Rolling Stone. Fogerty says he waited to record with each of his chosen partners until they could meet in studio and do it live. “I didn’t want to just mail people tracks because then everyone would just do ‘Proud Mary’ like the old record,” he says in the same interview.
He’s been working on the album since 2010, and originally scheduled it for release in October 2012. A press release about the delay suggested there would be original material on the album, something that is not addressed in the Rolling Stone article. The focus is on the old CCR songs, however. Fogerty has finally regained publishing rights to the songs after a lengthy legal battle.
“I wrote all these songs,” he said. ” They’re back home with Daddy, like they should be.”
Confirmed songs on ‘Wrote a Song for Everyone’ include ‘Fortunate Son,’ ‘Born on the Bayou’ and ‘Long As I Can See the Light.’
