Dr Joe Burns hosts an insightful and energetic showcase of the music history and culture of rock-n-roll
Rock School - 01/17/21 (Hipgnosis Song Fund)
"Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Devo and a long list of other musicians have sold their music catalog to a music investment company. There are a few out there but Hipgnosis is the biggest of the bunch. What is this all about? Why would people sell their entire music career? Let us talk about it. "
Rock School - 01/10/21 (2021 Anniversaries Part 2)
"Here is the second part of our look at the anniversaries of 2021. We do every 10 years going back from the new year. This week, we will discuss events that occurred in 2011. 2001, 1991 and 1981. Join us for the look back."
Rock School - 01/03/21 (2021 Anniversaries Part 1)
"To start every year, we look back every ten years to find out what will be the anniversaries for this new year. In this show we'll start all the way back in 1871, 150 years ago. Then move up ten years at a time until 1970. That will wrap up show number one. Number two is next week. Happy New Year."
Rock School - 12/27/20 (Those Who Died in 2020)
"The final Rock School show of every year is dedicated to those who left us that year. The year 2020 is a bit different as we dealt with a virus. We'll start with the musicians we lost to Covid and then list the others who passed throughout 2020."
Rock School - 12/20/20 (It Happened on Christmas)
"For this show, we stopped by a lot of the This Day In History websites and looked for events in music that, say it with me, happened on Christmas day."
Rock School - 12/13/20 (Our Christmas List)
"This week is our first of two Christmas shows this year. Everybody has a Christmas list so we are doing a Christmas list show. Top songs. Biggest sellers. Movies. Toys. Books. It is just a big Christmas list."
