Rock 'n' Roll will never die

Highlight of my week! There is no radio option that I know of where I can hear what's going on in the world of classic rock.

An insightful Journey into all things rock

Listening to this series is akin to hanging with your buddies over a couple good brews and light-hearted banter. Guaranteed your buddies wont even come close to the passion and knowledge that Finn and Michaels bring. These guys have been in and around the music industry for along time-bumping elbows with some of the worlds best musicians. Buckle in as they relive the glory years, rhapsodize the here-and-now, and speculate on the future. Who's touring, who's breaking up(or reuniting!) when is the new album coming out-ITS ALL HERE!

If you identify as a fan of rock in any way, shape or form, you owe it to yourself to tune in.

Give Them A Listen!!!

Barstool Rockers is a thoughtful, intelligent and often witty look into the world of rock and roll and music in general... it's informative, articulate and has hosts that know their stuff. Jim is correct, it's NOT Queen without Freddie!!! Give them a listen, it's an awesome podcast!!!
